From what I'm reading on the internet this painting was done free handed - what an amazing job! I believe this picture captures the heart of Scotty and portrays exactly what he stands for.

'Baby lock them doors' at the ACAs

Scotty's idol Josh Turner as well as AI Season 6 Winner Jordin Sparks presented Single of the Year by a Female Artist last night at the ACAs (fellow Idol winner Carrie Underwood took home the honor!). Jordin asked Josh to sing one of his hits because she knew everyone would love to hear his voice. The crowd erupted when be began singing what other song besides 'Your Man', otherwise known to Scotty fans as 'Baby lock them doors'. Along with the crowd, Scotty as well as his mom were in the audience singing along. They appear in the video below around 1:19 singing along. Fun moment to start of the night for Scotty fans!

AmericanIdol.com: Carrie, Kelly, and Scotty Win American Country Awards

At last night’s second annual American Country Awards live from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Carrie Underwood, Scotty McCreery, and Kelly Clarkson were nominated, and ALL of them brought home awards!

...

When Scotty McCreery took the stage after performing “The Trouble With Girls” to accept his Best New Artist of the Year award, he said, “This is my first award and it’s the daggum Telecaster.” He thanked American Idol and then told the fans, “You guys got me through American Idol and got me this award.” Scotty ended his acceptance speech by giving his mom a happy birthday shout out.

Fans logged on to www.theacas.com to cast votes in support of their favorite country music artists. The awards include traditional categories, as well as previously unrecognized areas of the business such as touring, encompassing the entire spectrum of country music and bestowing honors that no other awards show has.

Taste of Country: Scotty McCreery Stars in 'American Idol' 2012 Commercial



By Billy Dukes

Scotty McCreery is featured in a new commercial for the 2012 season of ‘American Idol.’ The reality show’s January premiere was heavily advertised during the 2011 American Country Awards show last night, and each break was enthusiastically country.

McCreery’s first audition — when he was just “Scott” McCreery — set the tone for one advertisement. The commercial goes on to feature images from the teenager’s five month journey from ordinary teen to extraordinary country star. Video clips of him pitching for his hometown baseball team are sprinkled in with footage of his interviews and performances during the show.

A few of this year’s contestants are featured toward the end of the ‘American Idol’ commercial, but viewers don’t get an idea of who might be an early favorite just yet. A separate commercial featuring another young country singer doing his best impression of McCreery singing Josh Turner‘s ‘Your Man’ didn’t fill fans with hope that a new country talent was amongst the frontrunners.

There’s no doubt that it will take a unique voice to overcome inevitable comparisons to McCreery during ‘American Idol’ 2012.

Scotty McCreery Wins New Artist at ACA


Scotty McCreery's incredible year continued tonight as he won his first award at a country music awards show. Scotty was named the top New Artist at the American Country Awards.
The awards, airing live from Las Vegas, are voted on by music fans. Winners receive customized Fender Telecaster guitars. Scotty joked that his first award was "a dadgum Telecaster."
Scotty, the Garner High School senior and "American Idol" winner, likely had a heads-up that he was going to win tonight's award. As soon as his name was announced as the winner, the stage opened to reveal him singing his current hit, "The Trouble With Girls."
Scotty finished first over four other nominees -- The Band Perry, Jerrod Niemann, The Pistol Annies and Thompson Square, whose hit "Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not" was covered by Scotty when he was on "Idol."
In his acceptance speech, Scotty thanked God, "Idol" producers and country music fans. He also gave a special shout out to his mother, Judy McCreery, in the audience. Today is her birthday.
Scotty was shown often in tonight's telecast. He fist bumped host Kristin Chenowith in her opening and he was shown singing along with Josh Turner to the song "Your Man." The song's opening bars -- "Baby, lock them doors and turn the lights down low" -- was Scotty's unofficial theme during his time on "Idol."
Since winning the 10th season of "Idol" in May, Scotty has hit one milestone after another. He headlined this summer's "American Idols Live!" tour, and his first album, "Clear As Day," soared to the top of the charts. He has gold records (meaning at least 500,000 copies shipped) for the album and for his first single, "I Love You This Big." Scotty has sung the National Anthem at the World Series and performed atop a float in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
In between his performances and TV appearances, Scotty is still taking part in his senior year at Garner High when he can. He's a big fan of the school's Trojan football team, which played in the state championship game over the weekend, ultimately falling to Greensboro's Page High School.
In January, Scotty will embark on a tour with country singer Brad Paisley.

Scotty McCreery On ACA's Best Dressed List

2011 American Country Awards Best Dressed Pictures
The best dressed artists at any given music awards show are often as news-making as the winners themselves, and tonight’s 2011 American Country Award’ best dressed were no exception. We want to bring special attention to adorable ‘American Idol’ winner Scotty McCreery made our list of the ACAs’ most stylish, which is pretty impressive given his short awards show resume. McCreery rocked the dressy-casual standard, leaning more on the casual side with an untucked button-up and boots. It was ‘Clear as Day’ (we can’t help it) that his wardrobe was carefully chosen, given the way the different tones complemented each other.

I've only posted the parts pertaining to Scotty, you can click on the link below to read the full article and see the pictures for the other ACA artist that were in attendance.
