Scotty McCreery Becomes First Country Music Artist to Present Virtual Concert in “Club Cooee”

Later this month, singer/songwriter Scotty McCreery will break new ground when he becomes the first country music artist to present a virtual concert in an online gaming world. Club Cooee,
the online free 3D metaverse and social network with millions of users
from around the world, will host McCreery (transformed into an avatar
for the game) in concert for a limited time over two consecutive
weekends: April 24-26 and May 1-3.

“In this unsettling time where everyone has to be physically isolated
because of COVID-19, it’s great to find a fun way to bring people
together for some entertainment in the virtual world of Club Cooee,”
said McCreery. “I never thought I’d become a game avatar, but I’m always
up for trying something new. Looking forward to seeing everyone at Club
Cooee!”

Club Cooee is available for free on Google Play and the Apple App Store. Fans should go to the Scotty landing page:  https://en.clubcooee.com/scotty.
Once installed, the user will select a starter 3D avatar and nickname
and then be taken to the app’s main dashboard where they will find
McCreery-branded buttons for easy navigation. These buttons will lead
the user to news about the concert as well as special limited edition
collectible Scotty McCreery virtual fan merch packs for the game avatars
that will be available for purchase in the Club Cooee shop. During the
event, there will also be a special “Live Now!” button so users can
directly join the virtual concert.

McCreery is both the first musical artist to perform in Club Cooee and
the first country music artist ever to host a virtual concert in any
gaming world. (Artists from other musical genres who have hosted virtual
concerts in other gaming worlds include Alice in Chains, Blasterjaxx,
Haley Kiyoko, KORN, Marshmello and Offspring).

“We are excited that Scotty McCreery will be performing in Club Cooee’s
premiere virtual concert,” said Alexander Jorias, CEO and Co-Founder of
Club Cooee. “Club Cooee is a virtual party zone and hosting virtual
concerts is a perfect fit for us. Our platform allows artists to present
their music and engage with their audience in totally new ways. Our
users will love it!”

“We are very excited to present the first country music virtual concert
in gaming,” said Winston King, VP of Business Development for Epik who
created the partnership with McCreery and Club Cooee. “Country music is
an underserved music genre in mobile games, and we are excited to do
many more.”
