After a heated battle with other up-and-coming country artists, Scotty McCreery managed to garner the most fan votes to take home the Best New Artist trophy at the 2012 ACM Awards. McCreery, who has gone on to top the country charts with his debut album and single after hit single since winning season 10 of ‘American Idol,’ was absolutely overjoyed to be crowned the Best New Artist at the ACMs, and he could hardly contain his excitement.
‘American Idol‘ Season 10 winner Scotty McCreery returned to the stage tonight (March 29) to perform his twangy, uptempo single ‘Water Tower Town.’ It feels like only yesterday that the singer was competing in the thick of the competition each and every week. Now, with a hit record and hard-earned status as a country superstar, McCreery really has grown by leaps and bounds in the space of a year.
When a high school kid takes the country by storm on ‘American Idol’ and skyrockets into the realm of major headlining tours and celebrity status, it’s easy to forget that they’re still what they were before — a high school kid. ‘Idol’ champ Scotty McCreery is reclaiming a bit of his before-the-fame life, having recently rejoined his high school baseball team, stepping up as a pitcher for the Garner Trojans in Garner, N.C.
Each week on the remaining episodes of ‘American Idol‘ Season 11, one unfortunate hopeful will have to leave the stage for good. Rather than making that moment more awkward with silence or a peppy pop song spinning in the background, ‘Idol’ commissioned last season’s winner Scotty McCreery to record the farewell song to make it a memorable moment. McCreery chose to do a cover of Tim McGraw‘s 1999 hit, ‘Please Remember Me.’
He admittedly is a little out of shape, but Scotty McCreery made the cut to earn a spot on Garner High School’s Varsity baseball team. The 18-year-old hasn’t pitched since 2010, and even the coach at his hometown school isn’t sure what to expect from the senior.
Suspicion is running high on Brad Paisley‘s tour with Scotty McCreery and the Band Perry. After McCreery pranked Paisley last Saturday night (Feb. 25) at their Springfield, Mo. show, the young singer started watching his back more than normal. And, with only today and tomorrow (March 3) left in their run together, McCreery must just be itching to see if Paisley’s going to retaliate.
Brad Paisley has just one weekend to seek retaliation on Scotty McCreery. The younger singer pranked Paisley during his song ‘Celebrity’ on Saturday night in Springfield, Mo. Their run of dates together ends next Saturday in Lexington, Ky.
It was bound to happen. A young man tastes success, and his family tries to bring him down. Scotty McCreery is apparently being blackmailed by his cousin ‘Jimmy Dale’ until the singer returns the “50 large” he borrowed. In the video below, the Larry the Cable Guy lookalike reveals three truths about his 18-year-old cousin.
Scotty McCreery can now add being mocked on ‘Saturday Night Live’ to his ever-growing ‘you know you’ve made it when’ list. Singer Michael Buble appeared on the show on Saturday (Dec. 17) as the musical guest, and got a chance to show his funny side in a funny skit promoting his “new Christmas album,” ‘Michael Buble Christmas Duets,’ which features ‘The Trouble With Girls’ singer, as well as Taylor Swift and many big names in pop music.
