Scotty McCreery Radio Request posting from Idol Forum

I do not know if anyone from the Idol Forum site has verified that this is a legitimate letter or not. But I felt it was something that should be posted on here, just in case it is legit. You will see on the Radio Requesting Tab Hailey has listed some of the do's & don'ts for requesting songs.

Dear Scotty fans/street teamers,

We would like to request that you ONLY contact your LOCAL radio stations when requesting Scotty. We know when you are not from our area by your ip address/etc. By launching your attacks and/or campaigns, you are doing nothing but hurting Scotty and his chances of getting airplay by annoying our air staff, managers,etc. Remember, this is our job. You have a job too right? So put yourself in our shoes for a minute please.

Scotty's music will garner airplay by sales, touring, research,buzz, etc. You are doing nothing but wasting your time and energy by launching your full on email, Facebook, etc attacks on our stations. Scotty has record company executives that call radio stations directly, that is their job to get the songs on the radio, not yours.

We appreciate your passion and energy for a new artist, we really do, but you guys/girls are getting out of hand and it will end up hurting Scotty in the end.

We do not hate Scotty by any means so let's put that to bed now but we must say it reflects negative on him when you are sending out mass emails to stations that you do not even listen to or that serve you. In case you didn't know we are licensed to serve our local communities not the world.

Just thought we would let you guys in on some very important information before its too late for the guy you love this BIG! original.gif

Take Care,

Scotty McCreery "Faith and Music"

In a recent interview, 17-year-old "American Idol" winner Scotty McCreery discussed signing with a major record label, the release date of his debut album, and what he calls his God-given talent.

Born-again Christian country crooner Scotty McCreery told entertainment website PopCrush that he credits God for his most prized trait - his sense of rhythm.

"You know everybody has that certain thing where God blessed them with something and gives them that special talent whether it’s music or sports or writing or anything," he said. "So, [it is] just one of those things God blessed me with - the rhythm."

This month, McCreery returns to high school in his hometown of Garner, N.C., for his senior year. He told the online news site that he hopes for just a typical year.

"I'm not going to be walking around school with an 'American Idol' tee-shirt on," said McCreery. "I'm going to just be normal, just a normal kid and hopefully things will work out."

Although the reality television show changed his life, McCreery admits he wants to still surround himself with the people he has grown up with, and continue to live the life like he had before "American Idol."

McCreery's first album, "Clear as Day," hits stores on Oct. 4.
McCreery, proud of his Christian faith, has often said that God helps get him through the hardships he faces and that he loves Jesus Christ with all of his heart.

When he was announced as the winner of "American Idol" season 10, McCreery said before a cheering audience, "I've got to thank the Lord first; he got me here."

The pride McCreery takes in his faith was apparent again when the singer kissed his cross after meeting Lady Gaga. The artist also wears his I Am Second bracelet at all times, even while on national television during the competition, where millions of viewers watched his ascent to fame.

On Friday, USA Today reported that McCreery and former "American Idol" competitor Lauren Alaina remain on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart. While other "Idols" are scattered throughout Billboard charts, the two acts are the only names to appear on albums.

McCreery will continue to perform on the last leg of the American Idol Live! Tour before returning to Garner for his senior year of high school.
