  1. AWWWW!!! That's our Scotty! He's having so much fun! I did notice the girl that's with them is the same girl he picked for his lab partner on TTWG Video. They must hang out everytime he goes home. ;-)

  2. I noticed that, too... There was probably another girl with them we didn't see... But Gabi seems to be his pick, for now at least... Still don't know if there is a Prom this Spring?

  3. Looks like Scotty & his friends are having a great time. He has the sweetest smile. Gramma S., I'm sure there will be a senior prom, usually near the end of the school year before graduation. It would be cool if Scotty's band could play that night. :)

  4. Prom would be in May. What I'm thinking is.... it's so cute how he can still get so excited about being on the jumbotron after everything that he's done in the past year. AI, award shows, performed with country stars, talk shows, touring the country, etc...and yet here's a boy who acts all silly because him and friends see themselves on the jumbotron...just too cute. You just have to love Scotty.

  5. I thought so, Grandma V. Wonder if he will take a date (Gabi?) or play and sing for it? Maybe both? (I think I need to get a life :)!)

  6. The Garner Hight Prom is on April 21st. Sure he will make the right decision about who to take to the prom.

  8. Who could that lucky girl be? So good to see him having fun with his friends. Grandma S you are as bad as I am. Yep, we do need to get a life.........

  9. he's so lucky to have such good friends -- these kids have been together since they were in kindergarten all the way up thru to high school -- it's good that he is spending whatever time he has left in high school with them -- once he graduates high school, his life is going to take on a whole new momentum -- after high school we all go our separate ways in our lives and it's really such a nice feeling to get back with good old friends you've grown up with -- i still get together with my elementary and high school friends and we have such a fun time -- so it's really nice to see that scotty is having fun with his good old friends --

  12. I think its great that they are a couple, him and Gabi, but I just want him to come and say it! She is the only girl he is ever out with otherwise its just the boys! On a random note: I think there is something about music videos and girls.. when a singer likes a girl thats the way its displayed (Brad Paisley and Kim, Lee Dewyze met his fiance in Sweet Serendipity, theres a billion more I could name, its very flattering I think!

    1. I acually have noticed that about girls in videos! I love the Brad paisley 'Gone Fishin' video.

      Delete
    2. I don't see any reason to "come out and say it". It's not like announcing an engagement (lol). When Scotty was asked what kind of girl he likes, he said one that is not dramatic, said "I don't do drama". An announcement would seem kind of dramatic.

      I thought someone on this site said that they saw Scotty somewhere with the blonde girl who receives the note in the video.

      If it is Gabi, it just makes more sense to let it come out organically and not make some announcement, after all it just is "dating". I do see where a tweet of hers is on Scotty's twitter page. First time I've seen that.

      Delete
    3. Hers is the only 'tweet' you see on both his and Ashleys accounts.. but I wouldnt read into that too much.

      Delete
  13. Wonder why in the photo of the game he is next to her and in the jumbo-shot he is behind his friend? I remember reading an article how he said he wanted to 'meet a nice hometown girl' guess he realized he already did.

    ReplyDelete
  14. i think they are just great good old friends...they go to the same church and belong to the same church youth group and they've known each other all their lives...the same with the boys in group...she's also his lab partner...i mean, if scotty were seen with any girl people would speculate the same...look at all that fuss that happened with la...they're teenagers and that's what teenagers do, hang out with each other...i'm not reading anything into it...let them be kids before they go off to college...

    on another note, maybe one reason radio is giving him such a tough time (although that was already expected day 1) is bec he chose to go back to school even though he really didn't have to and just needed to complete 1 subject to graduate...you know?...when he could have easily gone around "wooing" radio stations, etc....but nothing wrong with his choice to go back and finish hs with his class...but i think once he graduates hs, however and wherever he ends for college, he has to start that momentum seriously if he intends for this to be a lifelong career...so i am curious to see just how this momentum picks up from Fall onwards...i think Belmont would be right should they accept him...i remember when carrie u. was on ai, she was in her jr year in college, and after she won she spent the 1 year after that season on her first 2 albums and tours, moved to nashville, and then she finished her 1 remaining subjects at belmont to get her credits for her degree....so i know scotty is a bit anxious about moving away from garner, but he has to....#justmythoughts

    1. I'm in agreement with U 7:42, I also think that Scotty should go the BELMONT UNIVERSITY, plus it is a CHRISTIAN school. He said that he wanted a christian girlfriend, there should be one at this university. I have been praying that he will choose to go to BELMONT. I pray that he will make the right descion.

  15. re the tweets...i think some of his hs classmates/friends got an i-phone for xmas...so that explains that...most of scotty's close friends are already in college and he mentioned that during ai10...anyway, i think they all are just hanging out spending quality time before going off to college, you know, last time in hs, etc....scotty has learned about the press and rumors, esp after all that with la last summer...so he naturally wants to protect his friends from that...i think it's great that he has such good friends; not many stars do...

    ReplyDelete
  16. AND, scotty has not only shared himself and his family with us (his fans), he also shares his friends and his hometown....i'm sure they text messages or share phone calls, just as he does with his ai family...not everything has to be "out there" for the press to eat up....

    i believe scotty when he says he's "single"...and of course he may be dating, what's in a date anyway? he's a teenager.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I too think he should go to Belmont, I think he may stay at home though/I think in a way he wishes his carrier could be turned on/off like a switch. He once said 'you have to be careful what you wish for' implying he is not always happy.. staying home could be closest to feeling when he isnt working, like this never happened. I dunno, just my thoughts. On his dating life someone mentioned about him dating the blonde girl.. I havent heard that, but I know someone in Garner who says him and Gabi have been dating for months now and I dont think he would say it because really, whats the point?

    ReplyDelete
  18. well, he has already chosen to pursue this career....he should go to belmont if they accept him, then he can work in nashville, which would make more sense and which to me is more practical...but it's up to him...yes, she's been dating him since after he won ai and before the ttwg video...that's why the director roman white said, "it's fictional love, but real..." -- imagine all those girls who will be crushed when they find out that he has a gf! -- i caught him when he was interviewd by kathy lee and she asked him whether he has a gf and he answered, not really....also at the cmas when he was asked whether he was dating anyone, he stalled before he answered (bec he can't lie) -- anyway...he's 18, teenage stuff...

  20. SCOTTY, SHE'S BEAUTIFUL, I THINK TWO LADIES WILL GET JELOUS, "TM" AND "LA" HA HA THAT'S ONLY A JOKE

    ReplyDelete
  21. I don't think there is anything wrong with his fans being curious and caring who he is dating...I think Scotty's comments during AI suggested he hadn't had the opportunity with girls as much as he wld have liked and even though he's busy, to me he seems to have indicated he'd like to have some dates and maybe someone special...I'm just curious b/c I care for him and want to see him happy. PPl are always saying "let him do this, or let him do that" in respect to his lovelife, and it's not like we're at his front door trying to tell him what to do...or tweeting him our opinions...I want him to do whatever makes him happy...but I have to say I've kinda hoped for it to be Gabi since the first time I saw her smile.....she just lights up from within...Ive heard rumors bout the blond also and if it turns out to be her...then that's cool too as I'm sure anyone Scotty chooses to date or for relationship will be right for him at the time. I'm sure she'll be as special of a person as he is. I've noted the slight hesitations in interviews also and have felt he was probably at least dating someone...and like someone said, I don't think he will lie when asked, but will try to keep respectfully quite about it...that's why I was 100% convinced there was never anything btwn him and LA as Scotty wld not adamantly deny to extent he did...if there were any truth to it...Where on utube? Are they saying it's Gabi, I'm dying to see if my original hunch was correct. What a lucky girl whoever or whenever.

  22. yes, it's gabi--that's why he decided to go back to school and attend regular classes when he actually didn't have to--originally the plan was to just take the one subject he needed to finish hs & move to nashville to work on his career & prepare for college--but i was surprised when he went back to school like a regular student attending all those classes that he already finished--i agree with 9:03 PM--it seems like he wants to go back to the life he had before ai and be like/with his friends--unfortunately he can't just turn this off and on--i think he's still "scared" to leave home--i hope he realizes that his life is destined for bigger things--he could be missing out on so much more--he does seem to try to take this all in stride, however there's a limit as to how long one can do that, bec the fans could also start taking this all in stride too eventually--i like that he is trying to stay grounded, but i'm kinda finding this whole "garner" scene overdone/corny--it took him until the top 5 to decide that he wanted to win the title ai, i wonder how long it will take him to "go big"--

    ReplyDelete
  23. i don't really care who he dates--but i'm just wondering, does he really think he's that big already?--so many other artists have been working on the road trying to get to where he is just from being on ai--maybe that's why there are still skeptics in the industry--he's taking this in stride, so radio and others can take him in stride too--i think he should move to nashville and focus on establishing himself as the country artist he says he wants to be--it's almost a year now since he won ai, some fans are die-hard and stay, but others move on bec life goes on--i have worked in this industry and it is really tough on all levels--

  24. There are alot of young, hungry new artist out there ready to pounce. Lauren and Hunter Hayes come to mind. They make no bones about being "all in" in pursuit of their career. I feel a little sorry for Scotty. I think winning Idol took him by surprise and maybe if he could do it all over, he wouldn't have tried out till he finished college. But you can't unring a bell. He has a commitment to Idol that he must contractually fulfill. But I tend to agree with 10:30 that the whole Garner scene is getting a little tiresome. He should take Brad's "Letter to Myself" to heart. He's playing with the big boys now. Carpe Diem Scotty.

  25. I love Scotty and I only wish the best for him. But as a mom, I prefer him to be close to home. Nashville is good for his career but I have a feeling that Scotty is not ready to leave home quite yet. Also, all his friends go to either NCS or ECU or UNC. I don't know. It's going to be a tough decision for him and his family to make. As much as I want to see him all the times, I'll support whatever decision he makes. And I'm sure he'll make the right decision.

  26. I agree with so many of the above comments. I know many people have praised him for the way he has gone back to his 'normal' life... but at times it can seems too lax. What he has people fight for and never get there, he rode the train in speeding and got shell shocked I think. He says he wants to do this for life, but going to college gives me another feeling. On a random note he seems like the kind of guy who would ideally wants to marry his high school sweetheart... I wonder if thats something on his mind, have noticed in a few interviews just lately he has randomly dropped the 'when I have a family' line. For 18 those are big words, that really solidifies he is dating someone special..

  27. Have you every thought maybe she is one of his friends gf???

    1. She dated a mutual friend of theirs last year and was at junior prom with him. Pretty sure they split though... She is really pretty but a bit bananas/I clicked her twitter off of scotty's.. kinda weird stuff on there!

  28. at this time, i get the feeling that he's not ready for this, or maybe too many people back home to please...i tell you, if this was my dream all my life, i would grab it...he's only 18, too young to commit to settling down with someone...i think that whoever was really quick to grab him now...i don't know, but if he wants to go back to his "normal" life, then he should have let someone else win...going to college is ok, you can do that part time, a lot of people do that...i'm just getting tired of all this "hometown" stuff...i was 16 when i went off to college and it was not near my home or parents or friends, but i made so many new, good friends and grew up...but whatever, it's his life, his dreams, his career...personally i think he's scared...he does not know what great things are out there for him...i can't spend my time voting like crazy for him all the time for this...

    ReplyDelete
  29. and, there are already a lot of comments in this regard out there coming from his own fans and others observing him....time to stop being a kid, i think,....i feel for him, but 18 is not a kid...

    ReplyDelete
  30. I am glad I am not the only person who is tired of him saying, "I am trying to lay low." Someone had asked him if you hadnt one AI would you have pursued a career? His answer was 'after college.' He is 18 and so young, but when it comes to relationships, he is more on the serious side I think. a funny feeling about him and Gabi/think this is gonna hold him back big time.

    ReplyDelete
  31. People, get serious! Scotty's college plans are HIS, not ours, and where he lives is his choice as not all country artists live in Nashville. All I want is for his music to continue to flow and that he continues to be a great role model to other young people. Let him have some fun and develop his career his way, at his pace.

    ReplyDelete
  32. To 8:24----Nobody is stopping him obviously--as if we had the power LOL. Just a friendly discussion. That's what these forums are all about, otherwise why even have them. His fans have every right to speculate, and I'm pretty sure are all sure that his choices are strictly his.

    1. I agree, no one knows whats gonna happen, not even him. Everyone participating on this site knows that. Its ok for people to worry if he makes the right/wrong choices too.

  33. yes, this is just a forum...i surf the internet a lot and i was surprised..i thought i was the only one with this observation..in this industry you have to work it because it is very competitive..all of this happening may not have been in his "normal" plans, but well, the road opened for him earlier than he expected..and what a break for someone who just came out of nowhere!..i think all this fun and games is holding him back..so i still think moving to nashville will be good for him and his growth..if you look at him on ai last year, he was a different scotty, boyish, etc...i'm sure he's grown/matured a lot since then...even his close friends noticed that during his hometown visit...he's still scotty, but something different about him now...i think the real, whole of scotty, his real full potential never showed before...he is much bigger than he knows and i don't mean fame, etc...maybe that's the problem...he wants to be just like all his friends back home.....i can only imagine the offers being pitched his way and his management having to choose bec they have to work around all this hs teenage stuff....he has to start getting used to being on the road, performing just like on ai summer tour and brad's tour and in lancaster...he needs to break out his guitar more during performances...but it seems right now he's focused on his hs memories and all that, and keeping his end of whatever contract/s for appearances/performances, etc...oh well....scotty is actually quite mature for his age and it shows when he speaks...sometimes i think he says things that really sound like the advice/opinion of others around him...oh well...i just think that now it's come to that point where it's no longer about ai anymore...like someone above said, he's now with the big boys, the pros in the industry he says he wants to work with/in...let's see...

  34. I think Belmont was the first school he ever looked at. He seemed sold on it. I know thats where Josh Turner and I think Paisley too went. Josh met his wife there, who is so lovely, shes a music teacher.. random. Anyways, It seems like the place for anyone who wants to stay ontop of things, but he isnt far in NC. You remember Aaron Kelly? I couldnt believe that boy at only 17 he was (#5 season 9) he moved there by himself over the summer tour, and kinda vanished. So, I guess really living there may be easier on him commute wise and spotlight wise, but fans will keep him around in the end...not where he lives.

    ReplyDelete
  35. i know his parents (esp his mom) are still trying to understand the music industry and how it all works, and they are also concerned about scotty moving to nashville. but you know, so many go off to college. brad went to belmont bec he was seriously intent on s music career and wanted to get his feet into nashville. when carrie won, she also moved to nashville to get her career going. and she was in jr college and had to leave all her friends too. so we will see just what happens. i know he wants to stay in garner and go to ncsu bec all his friends are there..but belmont i feel will be better for him.

    ReplyDelete
  36. LOL he's only 18, still in hs, and everyone's talking like he's going to get married! gosh, i hope not. too young, esp these days. i tell all my teenage nieces and nephews who are in college...go out and meet the world, don't settle down too young bec you could miss out on greater things..

  37. wow, what an intense discussion for a hockey video.

    ReplyDelete
  38. We can discuss all we want. I have faith in Scotty and his family that they will make the right decision for his career and personal growth.

    It is a big investment on our part voting and supporting Scotty liked what we had been doing. It can be frustrating when you see him being so relaxed and lay back. But isn't that why we love him so much?

    I will do it again even if Scotty decides to take a year off. To me, he is just very, very special and I love this kid with all my heart. He's just liked my two sons whom I will love and support no matter what.

    ReplyDelete
  39. After reading some of his friends' tweets, I'm really hoping he doesn't go to school at NCSU and join that shallow, pedestrian frat boy mentality. I stopped reading his friends' tweets because I caught myself wondering if Scotty felt like them, in which case, UGH. I know, not a very popular opinion considering how much Scotty's fans adore his friends.

  40. After reading most of the comments here i can conclude that most of them are not true scotty's fans.. they are just envious people with narrow minded thinking and more interested in scotty's private life than his career.. hey..just enjoy scotty's music and his wonderful and successful journey.. his personal life is up to him to decide and.. as for going to school and entering college to me is the best decision to prepare him to be a wise, well educated artist.. rather than being an empty headed artists who always jeopardise their careers with the wrong decisions and misconduct.. after all you won't lose anything if you spend your life learning more and more..

    1. I totally agree.

    2. I totally agree. Scotty himself had said many times that college is not to learn 1+1. It's where you learn to grow as a person and gain experience. How many of us has a career that's related to what you have majored in? With all that has happened last year, I feet it is best for him to be closer to home. He can always transfer to another college in two years. Having a support system is critical to his growth as a person and his career. Being close to home does not mean he is not independent. I think he is very mature and wise for his age.

  41. I think this needs to be said about Scotty: he is a teenage boy no matter how you slice it. He does immature things... like all teenagers, he is no god, he is a kid with a great talent. I can tell you he is not perfect, he will tell you the same.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Wow... you people! This young man has been extremely busy since auditioning for American Idol. Just think of all he has accomplished in such a short time. What do you want from him? No down time makes for an unhappy, frustrated person. Let him enjoy his senior year of high school if that is what he desires to do. If you believe in his talent, have faith he will succeed. Cream always rises to the top! Scotty McCreery is too talented not to make much more wonderful music in the years to come!

  44. I use to come on this site because it was exiting & fun to read all about the latest things going on with our guy but tonight it has really made me sad to see some of the post on here at age 18 he has so many decisions to make i'm sure is overwelming to him & his family.his sucess has come so soon & so fast i'm sure its hard to comprehend.everyone has their own life to live & we need to continue to support him in our thoughts & prayers maybe more than ever.he's still the same scotty we fell in love with & has so much going for him.scotty love you more than you'll ever know.MJ IN TX

  45. well, everyone has an opinion and just that, not envious nor interested in his personal life. That,s what fans do too, they watch and observe, not just vote. To say that some of the comments are from people who are not real fans or that they are envious is unfair and way off. But you,re right, he is still a kid. Some are probably just tired of the hs scene & just feel that he could be doing more for his career, nothing wrong with that thought. but I agree he should go to Belmont. anyway....end of this story for me.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I think some of the posts started here are are from people who are not really Scotty fans...just here to plant seeds of discontent which unfortunately seem to be working in some cases. I don't consider this opinion unfair, it's just my interpretation of the comments I read.

    For me, I will continue to support him and vote for him when required and hope that he continues to grow as a country artist, and that he has a full and happy personal life as well.
