Scotty McCreery Already Getting a GAC TV Special


Scotty McCreery Already Getting a GAC TV Special

You know you’ve made it when you’re getting your own documentary on GAC before your debut album is even out. That’s the case with latest American Idol winner Scotty McCreery who will be getting his own television special on GAC this Fall. “Introducing: Scotty McCreery” will feature footage of Scotty in his hometown of Garner, North Carolina, a backstage interview at the RBC Center, and behind the scenes footage of his home-town concert in July. Fans will visit his local church, high school and and highlights of his life growing up in the community. The special will air October 3rd on GAC.

Todd Cassetty who produced Taylor Swift’s “Taylor Swift: Speak Now” special for NBC was also the producer for this special. The special airs one day before “Clear As Day,” his debut album, hits stores.

TV Ratings Spur CMA Awards Bidding War: Scotty's Influence

Not an article surrounding Scotty, but an article that highlights what could have been caused somewhat by Scotty's influence. Titled TV Ratings Spur CMA Awards Bidding War, this article focuses on the fact that three of the top television networks are now all bidding on being home to the 45th annual CMA Awards.

The writer believes this has been caused by two things:

1. ABC announced that almost seven million people watched 'CMA Music Festival: Country Music's Night to Rock'.

2. The article goes on to say that along with country singer Blake Shelton "becoming a house hold name" and Scotty and Lauren's "clean sweep" of American Idol, country music "has never been as visible as it has been in 2011".

This all leads me to ask these questions- how many of you watched the CMA Music Festival for the first time this year for a glimpse of Scotty? And thinking back to the CMT Awards, we all knew Scotty would be there. Who watched looking for him? Also, how many of you will watch the CMA's if Scotty will make an appearance?

Now, many of Scotty's fans would watch even without Scotty because of their love for country music but many of Scotty's fans have claimed they normally don't like country music.

No word yet on if Scotty will present an award, perform or even be there but when it is announced, we will be sure to let you know!

The 2011 CMA Awards will air live from Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on November 9 at 8:00 PM ET.
