Scotty McCreery has won the 2011 Taste of Country Award for Best New Artist. His victory was the second most lopsided of all 10 Taste of Country Awards categories. McCreery picked up almost 43 percent of the votes in the year’s most voted on Taste of Country award category.

The singer’s fans continue to step up when he asks them to. Their loyalty was forged during the early rounds of ‘American Idol,’ and it proved strong enough to allow him to be crowned the Season 10 champion. McCreery’s debut album, ‘Clear as Day,’ debuted at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard charts, making him the first country artist to accomplish that feat and the youngest male ever to top the charts.

Additionally, the 18-year-old sang the ‘Star Spangled Banner’ at the World Series, headlined the American Idols Live Tour, scored an opening slot on Brad Paisley‘s 2012 tour, became the first Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Famer, won the ACA New Artist of the Year award and still had time to keep up with his studies at Garner High School and deliver gift boxes to the Dominican Republic.

Brantley Gilbert finished second in the voting, with just over 20 percent of the votes. Lauren Alaina, Thompson Square and Pistol Annies rounded out the nominees. Congratulations, Scotty!

  1. This is a bit off our concentration, but Dolly Parton, one of the matriarchs of Country in Scotty's view, is up against Brantly Gilbert this week when he can win All-Star status....Dolly had only 6% of the vote when I started and she could use some help. Thanks.

  12. Yes to post@1:23 AM - it was a real close one between him and Blake, so maybe 2nd, but to me Scotty was so close almost like 1st anyways -- Definitely a winner!

  14. This is not related to this topic, but I cannot find the "voting" link/site on that usa today poll -- I was able to vote only once and now I can't get back in to cast any more votes! I have followed all the links that have been posted here and on other fan sites as well, but though I get to usa today, I can only view the results but I cannot vote. Maybe others are having similar problems?

  16. Whenever Scotty gets a nomination, we fans make sure he takes home the title. Fans, keep up the support so Scotty will get more nominations and recognition for his great contribution to country music. Who sings, charms, interviews and smiles better than Scotty McCreery? NOBODY!!!

  18. I've never been so taken with any other singer as I am with Scotty. I love to hear him sing. I've liked other singers over the years, but they've fallen by the wayside. Scotty is definitely a keeper and I will enjoy his music for a lifetime!

  19. does he get an award or just the title.

  20. I think Scotty is no.1 for Best Cover of Your Man, because Footloose is nowhere near country.
