Taste of Country: Picture of the Week: Scotty McCreery Dons Ugly Christmas Sweater

By Billy Dukes

Scotty McCreery tweeted for everyone to wear an ugly Christmas sweater on Wednesday, and it looks like he followed through with his own request. A fan tweeted this photo of the ‘American Idol‘ winner. More shocking than the outdated threads is whose closet he raided to find it — his mother’s — all in good fun, though. McCreery will surely be back to blue jeans and cowboy dress shirts in time for the his 2012 tour with Brad Paisley.

AOL Sessions: Pictures

These are pictures that were taken in New York City on October 3rd when Scotty made his visit for the AOL Sessions. The top one was posted by Hailey earlier and for those that didn't see them, the other two black and white pictures were posted in the comments section. The videos from the AOL Session can be found here.

Taste of Country: Scotty McCreery Performs ‘Clear as Day’ Hits, Reflects on 2011

By: Amanda Hensel

2011 has truly been a life changing year for Scotty McCreery, whose career had only just begun when he was announced the winner of ‘American Idol‘ earlier this year. In a recent interview with AOL Sessions, the 18-year-old budding country star revealed that he thinks his win is an indication of something bigger: country’s growing influence.

“It shows that country music is going more mainstream now,” the ‘I Love You This Big’ hitmaker quipped. “More people are listening, more people are watching. It’s not realistic to think that every person was a country fan that was watching, but it shows that country music is kind of making the move into more mainstream music. It’s a good thing for the genre.”

It’s a good thing for Scotty McCreery, too, though he said his newfound fame means staying home more. “It’s tough for me to go out nowadays, ’cause there’s a lot of people that watched the show,” he said, sharing how often he gets recognized. “So, it’s tough. Not a lot of places out there. Maybe a deserted island out there — I don’t know.”

2012 is slated to be an even bigger year for the young star as he continues to grow in his career, and it will most likely include college — perhaps in Nashville. McCreery admitted that he’s still young with a lot to learn, and may pursue music business as a major, which would be a “really cool option.”

While McCreery was in the studio, he performed a handful of hits from his ‘Clear as Day’ album, including the title track and his latest successful single, ‘The Trouble With Girls.’

Scotty McCreery

This is an old video taken on the night they were to announce the top two going through to the Americna Idol finale. It's filmed in Garner and even though it isn't recent, Its something I didn't see at the time. I'm sure many of you have viewed it before, but it's still worth another watch. Garner sure is an amazing town!

From YouTube
Fonville Morisey proudly supports Scotty McCreery in his quest to be the next American Idol. His mother, Judy, is one of our agents. Fonville Morisey Representatives attended the official American Idol viewing party at Garner Magnet High School to cheer Scotty on to the Finals. The video includes interviews with Fonville Morisey representatives, Garner Trojan Athletics Booster Club members, Scott Honeycutt Master of Ceremonies, and Mike Wheless of WQDR 947.7 FM. Don't forget to vote for Scotty this week! He's our American Idol.

Pictures Scotty McCreery 12/23/11

I found some pictures I haven't seen yet on Tumblr this morning. I thought I would share them over here, since I know a lot of you don't have tumblr :)


This is an interesting one, and I'm still trying to understand where this is from, or was this photo shopped! I've been so busy lately with Christmas.. either way - It's interesting, and is apparently taken from a photo shot he did awhile back. 

Not recent, but I like it!
