Scotty McCreery made a quick trip to Washington, D.C. recently to tape his appearance on TNT’s Christmas in Washington.  According to People, Scotty sang “Santa Claus Is Back in Town” for the audience, which included President Obama and his family in the first row.

Scotty, who is a student at North Carolina State University, bonded with UNC Tar Heels fan Obama over college basketball.  He told the commander-in-chief, “When you make your annual NCAA bracket this year, show the Wolfpack some love.”

Scotty also got in some sightseeing during his trip and even paid a visit to Children’s National Medical Center, which benefits from the Christmas in Washington concert.  The show airs December 21 at 8 p.m. ET on TNT.
