  2. Thank you, Donna, for posting this video. I have been dying to see it and do not have GAC. I just saw it a few minutes ago on the fan chat site, thanks to BBB and Linda. So happy you posted it here. He is such an amazing young man and so deserves to win ACM New Artist of the Year. Vote daily !!! Wish I had more computers or other devices on which to vote. Kait, Or

  5. I watched the show on GAC and what really struck me was the difference in styles and voices. Brantley and Hunter are both "country rock" with the typical higher country voices and songs that pretty much sound like a lot of the other country songs out now. But when Scotty came out, his beautiful barritone country voice transported us back in time to a young George Strait, Randy Travis, Conway Twitty, etc. who sang songs where we could actually understand the words and enjoy the stories they were singing to us. I love Scotty's voice and although the other two nominees are very talented, they just don't have that "special something" that Scotty has that makes us stop and listen to every word of his songs. I hope we fans can do this for our young man....he is so deserving of this award.

    1. was glad to see someone else reconized that when scotty sings you can actually hear each word clear as a bell (or should i say day) lol. hope my vote is going thru. still trying.

    2. I agree that Gilbert is country rock (with a little rap thrown in); Hunter is more country pop and, of course, Scotty is more tracditional country. All three have very different styles.

      Also, I think CBS has fixed the problem about being able to vote over and over again until you log off their site. I have my doubts that the subsequent votes were being counted anyway.

    3. When Scotty sings, you actually find yourself listening to the words of the song and thinking. His golden voice really touches the heart and makes you feel the song. He really has very good instincts about what the type of songs he wants to sing and sticks to his guns about this. But I think more than that, he sings songs that have meaning and that will touch one's soul. Unlike most of the new generation of singers, who are also talented in their own right but whose songs have no real meaning/depth. He has reopened that door to real American country music, touching a generation of listeners, old and new. Scotty is definitely THE NEW COUNTRY ARTIST OF THE YEAR! I really hope and pray that he gets this award and I am voting every day.

    4. CBS' system was having problems with Internet Explorer but they have said that it is fixed now. Probably one reason there were so many problems with voting in the first 2 days. I never use IE even if it's on my computer. I use Firefox and you can download it for free off the Internet, if anyone is interested.

  6. OMG! Scotty just tweeted, "Wheels up!" :) woohoo -

    1. Any idea if he's gonna be in AI tonight?

  7. Does this mean we can vote more than once?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The rules state that we can vote only once from one IP address -- we can vote once from different devices, e.g., computer desktop, laptop, phone, ipad -- but I think that if these devices share the same IP address and you use the same sign-in, it will say "You have already voted today" or something like that.

      I just sign-in using my Facebook sign-in and it takes a few seconds to vote. Then I sign-out. Even if I don't sign-out, it will not let me vote again and again. So I don't know why that is happening to others, or so they say. I would just stick to the voting rules and not risk my vote/s being invalidated or Scotty suffering from penalty votes -- meaning, vote one time from different computers/devices.

      Remember, CBS said there was a problem in their system with IE, and now that has been fixed.

  8. HALEY IS ON AI TONIGHT ! MAYBE IS RECORDING FOR NEXT WEEK!

    1. Obviously, I don't know. But, I kinda doubt that he is recording for next week (although I do think he will be on AI next week), but he'll probably be live.

      Ashley and Mike are not with him today and they were planning on being there when he does AI and they aren't leaving til next week.

      One of his bandmembers, Justin, did tweet complaining (sort of) of having to be up this early and into traffic. Don't know if he was flying somewhere or not. But he lives in Nashville and wouldn't be on the same plane anyway.

      Let the guessing games beginning (LOL)

      Delete
    2. I'd like to think he was flying out early to do a video for YMTLG, but, IF the band is also going, it's not likely that.

      Delete
    3. Correction: It was Jeffrey not Justin who tweeted. And he is headed to a gig in Birmingham.

      OK: Scotty is in the studio. Guessing game not done yet. (g) WHAT is he recording?

  9. maybe,he's making video for a new single,is'n it terrible now we have to know every move he makes ,can't help it want to know everything he's doing.this is going to be a long 10 days mj in tx

    1. HAHAHAHA - I was right! Scotty just tweeted "Back in the studio!" and with a picture attached! He's recording in Nashville! woo-hoo-----

  11. All 3 nominees are talented, but Scotty's the whole package: charisma, stage prescence...and that baritone voice is da bomb! Why else would I download PRM after hearing just a 30 sec snippet? Scotty's one of a few artists I like whose new music I'd buy without previewing it first because I know I'll enjoy it.

    As for his "Wheels up!" tweet, if he didn't want fans speculating about his whereabouts, he wouldn't have tweeted that. He knows how we are. LOL

  12. hey maybe the song he's been workin on OMG mj in tx

    Replies
    1. he did mention a while back (in an interview) that he is also working on his next album -- does this mean his 2nd album will be released this year and not in 2013? now i'm excited!

      Delete
    2. I hope so, but i'm guessing it's the song for his high school graduation? Guess we'll find out some day. I am also waiting for his REALLY OUT OF THIS WORLD ORIGINAL SCOTTY SONG. He sings the other artists' songs so well (with their classic hits), imagine an original song of his own in that caliber!! I'm talking about George Strait, Garth Brooks, Tim McGraw, and even Elvis, etc.

      Delete
    3. I'm enjoying these comments so much and like everyone else am curious about what he's doing in the studio right now.

      Just a note to some of you younger ones who may not know it, Elvis never wrote one song of his own, but he made every song that he sang his own, just like our Scotty does. And like everyone else, I'm waiting for that song he's writing!!! Scotty's brought me back to country music again!

  13. We are Loyal Followers thats for sure !!!! I have never followed an Artist like
    I do Scotty. He really Loves His Fans....

    ReplyDelete
  14. Anything Scotty sings is great but I am so wanting him to do at least one song that show cases his beautiful deep voice, like Letters From Home or The Long Black Train. I don't mean to sing those songs but something with that low range. Does anyone else feel that way? I love Scotty and everything about him and feel like he is a family member.haha I have never been so involved with anyone as I have been with him. I am a 66 year old grandmother and get teased all the time for being such a Scotty fan.

    1. I know what you mean -- I also was just thinking the same thing -- I believe that Scotty's next album will really be his "showcase" -- CAD was recorded practically overnight and it's still such a good debut album, really good song selection -- with more time to work on his second album I believe we are going to hear even greater songs -- I am just eager for that ONE SONG that will seal it for Scotty -- I know that it is "there" and gosh, it will be awesome!

      Delete
    2. I agree,girls!! His new song "Please Remember Me" Is deeper and beyond beautiful!! Gives me goosebumps to my toes!!

      Delete
    3. Ditto to all the above. I am so "taken" with Scotty and my family just roll their eyes when I go on and on about how great he is and how I LOVE this talented young man! Like so many other fans, I have never followed an artist like I do Scotty, and at my age, I sincerely doubt any artist, current or future, could ever take that special place in my heart that Scotty has captured. He's just that great!

      Delete
  15. Scotty is without a doubt, in my mind, the most refreshing New Artist to hit country music in years! Love his voice and never tire of his music. Of course, I also admire the person he is...his faith, his charisma on stage, and interviews. Class with a capital "C" that's Scotty.

  16. please do not block the videos scotty for those like me who live outside the United States .......... share with everyone that's good for Scotty McCreery.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. i don't think anyone is purposely blocking the videos -- the official videos of shows (like those released by GAC or the ACM or whatever US TV network) are usually viewable only within the US at least at the time of airing -- just have to be a little patient and fans will eventually post copies on YouTube or fan sites --

      Delete
  17. I cannot wait if Scotty is recording a second album. I am sitting here listening to "Please Remember Me" over and over. I am a grandmother also
    and my family tells me I am obsessed with Scotty and I guess I am. He is such a wonderful person as well as a great entertainer. I just hope he wins New Artist of the Year. I think my heart would be broken if he doesn't win.

  18. In 1956 I was just a young girl when I first saw Elvis live at the fair. I went nuts over him and his good looks and beautiful clear and pure voice. He was Scottys age. I had not seen or heard anyone like Elvis until Scotty. I love him so, and I am a 70yr old grandma of 4. Please vote vote vote for Scotty.

    2. Saw a post on IdolForums that said in order for your vote to count, you must vote in both categories. Also said that he saw Jason Aldean's fans saying they are voting for Brantley Gilbert and some of Taylor Swift's fans voting for Hunter Hayes and some for Scotty. I would hope that Brad's fans would vote for Scotty - never saw anything about Kenny Chesney or Blake Shelton fans so they could be voting randomly. This could make a big difference in the outcome. I have voted each time for Brad as well so according to this my votes have counted. Phew!

  22. If Scotty was singing 10 miles from my house and it was raining or snowing hard, and I didn't have a ride, I would just bundle up and start walking. I mean it. I wouldn't miss seeing him come hell or high water. LOL here. I love him so much.

  26. I am a huge Scotty fan and I have been from the beginning. He is such a great singer and has such stage presence. He is the real deal all the way around. I am voting every day for anything I find out Scotty is in. I would like to know why Scotty is not included in Brad Paisley's tour when it comes to Raleigh this summer? If someone knows please post it. I would love to see him. Scotty is the only person I would go to a concert to see. Nancy

  28. We can vote more than once using the same device but with different email addresses (meaning different sign-ins). I signed up each of my two email addresses and I was able to vote twice from the same computer.

  29. this may have been a fluke, and may not have counted, but today on my work computer, after I clicked vote (the pop up to sign in didn't come up) the Every vote counts poster came up. I clicked the x to get rid of it, and the submit vote was there (both my picks were still picked....)I pressed submit vote again and it said "print the words you see....etc...) so I did, pressed submit vote again and the Every Vote Counts poster came up again. I repeated that process over and over all through lunch. I don't know if the counted or not, but I kept thinking....if others are doing this for their picks...I am going to try to level the playing field. It did not work on my home computer. The pop up came up to choosed the sign in method, then the Every Vote poster. When I tried to do what I did at work, it said, You've already voted...........

  30. Yes, you can vote more than once by going to www.voteacm.com and that takes you to the CBS site. Go up to the top right and hit "SIGN UP'. You will see a drop down box. Fill in your email, first and last name, password, enter the security code. You might have to check read the rules. Hit the enter button.-- it should say that "you have successfully created an account (I'm paraphasing). If you want to vote right then, then go up back to the top and "Sign In" and put in the email and password in. Scroll down and select Brad Paisley (or your choice) and Scroll down to Scotty McCreery and check his box and enter the security code and hit VOTE. You should get a brown message box, that says "Your Vote Matters" close that little box and then go up to the top and "Sign Out" And, close the site. Go back on and start over again..with Sign UP-- with a new email..and repeat the above instructions....

  31. Posted this as a reply to someone's post but thought I'd put it in as a separate post so everyone could see it. Have to say that I don't know if this was verified or not, but I will make sure I continue to vote in both categories just to make sure my vote counts.

  33. I came across a comment on TOC (Billy Bush) dated January that gave a prediction on who would be the ACM New Artist of the Year. I had not seen it before, so thought maybe other fans had missed it also. Really encouraging for Scotty.
