Scotty McCreery will be honored with the 2016 Patrick D. Kenan Award for Vocal Health and Wellness at Duke Voice Care Center’s 10th Annual World Voice Day celebration, slated for March 29.
The event will be held at the Cary Arts Center in Cary, N.C.
To keep up his demanding touring schedule, McCreery says he is careful to practice good vocal care.
“My voice is my livelihood, so taking care of it is essential,” said McCreery. “I make sure to stay as healthy as I can and not put any strain on my voice…well, unless I’m at an NC State sporting event! I also consult with my doctors regularly to make sure my vocal cords remain in great condition.” McCreery will offer an acoustic performance and share more secrets for keeping voices healthy at the event.
“Voices are the foundation of who we are. Our voices serve to inspire us, contributing to our beliefs and values, influencing the collective history of the human race. We honor our voices on World Voice Day and the unique contribution of everyone’s voice signature,” says Duke Voice Care Center Director David Witsell, MD, MHS.
