Scotty McCreery‘s 7-month-old, Merrick Avery, can now speak sentences. Well sort of, and it’s adorable.
The country singer recently posted a video of him sharing a special father-son moment with Avery. The clip opened with Avery seemingly uttering, “What’re ya doing?” before Scotty looked to his wife, Gabi, who was behind the camera.
“What are you doing? Did you just repeat what I said?” Scotty responded to Avery. He also captioned the video, “Avery skipping over first words and going straight to sentences??”
Avery was born in October 2022 and is Scotty and Gabi’s first child. The couple, who are high school sweethearts, got married in June 2018.
On the music front, Scotty’s “It Matters to Her” is currently in the top three and ascending on the country charts.

Police in Hollywood, Florida said that two people have been arrested, while three suspects are still being sought in connection with Monday’s mass shooting on the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk in Hollywood, Florida that left nine people including several children hospitalized. Hollywood Police have not released the identities of the injured, but said four of the nine victims are minors ranging in ages from 1 to 17, and the 5 adults are between the ages of 25 – 65. All of the victims were taken to either Memorial Regional Hospital or Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital; as of Tuesday morning, three adults had been treated and released from the hospital, while the other victims were in stable condition.
The shooting on Memorial Day happened shortly before 7 p.m. near Johnson Street, as the Broadwalk was crowded with Memorial Day beachgoers. Police said the incident started with an altercation between two groups of people that resulted in gunfire, and video from the city of Hollywood’s live feed of Hollywood Beach show people running or seeking cover when the gunshots were fired. What appears to be two guns can also be seen on the ground in the video. Officers responded and detained multiple people at or near the scene.
Police said Tuesday that while the people detained weren’t identified as the shooters, two were arrested on firearms charges; five handguns had been recovered, police said. Two of the handguns had been reported stolen, including one from Miami-Dade and one from Texas. Officials also released photos of three people who they believe were involved in the shooting, and are asking for the public’s help in identifying them. At a news conference Tuesday, Hollywood Mayor Josh Levy was the two people arrested were not from Hollywood but were from elsewhere in South Florida. Said Levy: “I’m very confident that we will apprehend those three persons. When you do something like this in broad daylight, with CCTV cameras up and down our Broadwalk, you will be identified and you will be caught and brought to justice. We’re not gonna tolerate this kind of behavior in a beautiful beach setting. We’re a very peaceful city and we will not tolerate people coming into our city and behaving in this way with no regard to people that are in harm’s way with iinocent bystanders injured like they were yesterday.”
Anyone with information is asked to call the Hollywood Police Department at 954-764-4357(HELP) or 954-967-4567.
In a statement issued by the Carter Center on Tuesday, the family of former First Lady Rosalynn Carter announced that Mrs. Carter has dementia. The statement read: “The Carter family is sharing that former first lady Rosalynn Carter has dementia. She continues to live happily at home with her husband, enjoying spring in Plains and visits with loved ones. Mrs. Carter has been the nation’s leading mental health advocate for much of her life. First in the Georgia governor’s mansion, then in the White House, and later at The Carter Center, she urged improved access to care and decreased stigma about issues surrounding mental health.”
The former first lady is 95, and the statement did not say when she was given the diagnosis. The statement continued: “One in 10 older Americans have dementia, a condition that affects overall mental health. We recognize, as she did more than half a century ago, that stigma is often a barrier that keeps individuals and their families from seeking and getting much-needed support. We hope sharing our family’s news will increase important conversations at kitchen tables and in doctor’s offices around the country. The universality of caregiving is clear in our family, and we are experiencing the joy and the challenges of this journey. We do not expect to comment further and ask for understanding for our family and for everyone across the country serving in a caregiver role.”
In February, it was announced that former President Jimmy Carter, 98, was suspending medical care and receiving only end-of-life hospice care, tweeting at the time: “After a series of short hospital stays, former President Jimmy Carter today decided to spend his remaining time at home with his family and receive hospice care instead of additional medical intervention.”
The Carters have been married since 1946. They have four children and more than two dozen grandchildren and great grandchildren.
As far as Dustin Lynch is concerned, “Country music fans are the best party throwers and best tailgaters.” There’s really no persuading him otherwise, especially since he’s seen all the action unfold.
“I always heard like NASCAR infield, NASCAR infield, this, that, Kentucky Derby, this, that. That’s people that haven’t been to a country music festival where there [are] campgrounds for four days,” Dustin tells ABC Audio while also referencing his “Stars Like Confetti” music video.
Directed by Chris Hickey, the video, which was filmed at Country Jam USA 2022 in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, captures pure summertime effervescence as concertgoers soak up the sun and enjoy some good ole country music with family and friends.
“It’s [an] absolute circus between the sets. Of course, everybody’s rushing to the shows. But before and after that, man, people are grilling out, making new friends, making babies in tents. It’s wild,” Dustin adds with a laugh.
“Stars Like Confetti” is off Dustin’s 2022 album, Blue In The Sky, which spawned the hit singles “Thinking ‘Bout You” with Mackenzie Porter and “Party Mode.” It’s currently in the top 30 on the country charts.
