  9. This too much excitement for this old man in one week. I have checked out the other Nominees and yes they are good but you know what no one can come close to Scotty for his voice and what Scotty stands for. Just look at how hard he has worked in the past year and where he is today. No one can match that I am so sure it will be our Scotty who will be the Best New Artist of Year.

  14. Big congratulations to Scotty for his hard work leading to all of the records and awards he has established and gained in this past year! As he goes forward he should know that his fan base is ever growing and very committed to supporting him as he gains stature in the Country music world.

  15. I got this from MJ's....This is a post from WINDMILLS, who's opinion always seems to be right on target!! (Congrats Scotty & his fans!

    I know it's not in the nature of big fans to relax but FWIW, he's got this. The industry knows he's going to run away with the fan vote and won't get in the way. Neither of the other 2 nominees have that much critical acclaim to back them up even if Hunter Hayes has more cred (he still has the issue of his voice which reminds people of Gary Levox, which won't help him). That's not going to be strong enough to overcome the sheer numbers as far as sales and popularity Scott has, not even in the eyes of industry voters. If they didn't want him to win, they would've block voted against him to prevent him from being in the semifinals and finals. It didn't happen. He's going to win. So, vote away (they want and expect you to) but it's not something worth stressing yourself out over IMO.)

  18. Just had a chance to "check in" to see if there was any news on our young man and this is what I find!!!!! We are all so excited and proud of you Scotty and you can be sure your fans will do our part to help you win the ACM New Artist Of The Year. Thank you for staying the same sweet, caring young man we fell in love with on AI. You have taken country music to another level while still holding on to the traditional music we have loved for so many years. I have to smile when I see all the teens and pre-teens going crazy for the same country sound that we "old folks" went crazy for when we were young. You are just amazing!

  20. I don't think anyone has the fans Scotty does,maybe TS and B gets alot more fans but it's because they cross over to pop ,but Scotty will remain true country,because that's who he loves the most.

  21. g1dragon Feb 9,2012 12:40 PM, thank you so much for posting MJ's blog from Windmills. It is exciting to feel that Scotty has a grand chance of winning the ACM New Artist title, and I certainly feel that Scotty does, but I find MJ's blog to be flippant about what all our young man has accomplished. MJ seems to be "stirring up the pot" so the other contestants' fans will want to vote more, and make Scotty fans feel that they do not have to vote as hard as we always have and will do for our boy. MJ, this blog is only going to make me, a Scotty fan and protector, vote even harder right up through April 1, until 8:00pm ET. I have found out that nothing can be taken for granted, and Scotty's wonderful, God-given talent, his charitable nature, and his wholesome image will rally all Scotty fans to vote even harder. Scotty, you have all of my votes and may God bless you as you attend school, attend your church, perform on your other stage-the pitcher's mound, tour with Paisley/Band Perry, and just being who you are--a good 'ole Country Singing young man. I am 60, so I have grandchildren of my own, and I have added Scotty McCreery to the list. Thank you, God, for what this honorable, young fellow has meant to me during the past months.

    1. g1dragon Feb 9,2012 12:40 PM, I am so new at leaving comments, and please excuse me for misreading that your post was from a blog by MJ and WINDMILLS was a blogger just making a comment about what MJ wrote. Please accept my lack of knowledge on this matter, but I am working hard on learning how to do all of this posting. I get so mixed up with all the different abbreviations, profiles, etc., but I am learning. I do "feel" what I wrote above, but just should have put WINDMILLS where I put MJ. Oh well, tomorrow is another day. (Wish I had a picture with a large hat pulled down over my head.)
