Scotty McCreery‘s country career took off after he won American Idol in 2011. Now that the show is coming to an end after next year’s 15th season, Scotty says he’s grateful to Idol‘s producers, judges and viewers for giving him his big break.

Scotty tells The Tennessean,”American Idol has been a dominant force in our pop culture for almost a decade and a half, but all good things must come to an end.”

The first installment of American Idol‘s two-night finale of the current, 14th season airs Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET on FOX.
