    2. I for one will never go to that website to view anything Billy Dukes ever writes again. He has never been a Scotty fan and always has some snide remark to make on every article about him he writes. He is using Scotty to get hits on his website and I refuse to contribute to that to help in any way at all!

  2. WHY DID YOU TAKE DOWN THE BILLY DUKES ARTICLE? DIDNT YOU KNOW SCOTTYS FANS WOULD BE FURIOS WHEN YOU PUT IT UP I FOR ONE THOUGHT IT WAS A GOOD IDEA TO LET FANS VENT THEIR ANGER AT HIM AND LET HIM KNOW HOW WE FELT

  14. I really enjoy visiting this site... but I'm disappointed that after I took the time to comment re the Billy Duke article on THIS site to avoid giving hits to TOC, the thread is deleted without explanation. Yes I understand that admin. wants to keep FOS a positive site, but an explanantion wouldn've been nice instead of coming here and finding the thread gone.

    Re: WTT, wonderful news that the single will hit radio on Thursday to coincide with Scotty's Idol performance. Excellent timing, Team Scotty! Now I'll head on over to VOTEACM.COM for a bit.

  15. Hi everyone-

    The TOC article was posted here due to a miscommunication. We took it off for different reasons. One being as we've mentioned before, close family and friends of Scotty have been know to visit this site. And we really want this to be a positive place for fans and if Scotty or family/ friends would visit, we want them to see this as a positive place as well.

    We definitely understand your frustrations and apologize. Of course, Billy Dukes is just ONE opinion out of many. Remember the reactions to TTWG weren't all that positive back in August. Won't be long until we are on to the next single, talking about the success of WTT!

    Have a great day and remember to vote:)

  16. I love Scotty but I really don't like this for the next single. I remember on here a long time ago there was a fan poll and WTT wasn't the fans choice for his next single. I think they want to play up Garner not Scotty in this single. Honestly all the "Garner" stuff is getting a little old. Sorry.

    2. just support scotty since they have choose the single stand behind scotty

      Delete
    3. Apparently they changed the new single to WTT because radio is more supportive of it...understand radio's reception of YMTLG was lukewarm. So, since they haven't gone with the fans choice for a new single, radio better come through for him with WTT!

  26. One of the local country radio stations where I live have the news about from cmt about Scotty singing at idol and releasing his new single. Just wanted to share this. It just made me happy.

  27. WTT - GREAT CHOICE! Reaching out to a larger audience. Always has been one of my favorites. Nice beat! You don't have to come from a water tower town to appreciate it. Just a good uptempo song.

  32. This is what the Mayor of Garner posted in Billy Dukes' review:

    Ronnie Williams · Garner Senior High

    As Scotty's Mayor,I agree with all those Scotty fans who question Mr. Dukes' review of "Water Tower Town".It is obvious that he has never visited Garner or experienced the pride of living in this Water Tower Town,getting to know our great people, and all those good things mentioned in the song which seem to be about Garner.On second thought,he did visit Garner when he was with QDR. He just dosn't like Scotty!

  33. I love love love the fact that Scotty takes pride in his family, church, hometown, and high school, especially at his age. I wish more people and kids took such pride in them. If so, there would be a lot less petty crimes, littering, graffiti, school bullying, and destruction of property. It is a great tribute to his community and to other towns across the country who mentor their kids through their schools, churches, and organizations. Also, my hats off to Scotty's school for working with his schedule (this shows all the kids that the school administration cares about them) and to all the kids at his school for allowing him to be a regular guy. I personally can't hear enough about it!! Water Tower Town is about ANY town that supports their citizens. I love this song and I love Scotty for highlighting a model community! It is a feel good song that has a deeper meaning. With the news media these days focusing on violent and terrible acts by kids and adults, it is difficult to believe that most people are good and kind. As I said before, my 10 yr old son loves CAD especially WTT because it is an upbeat song and not "mushy". I asked him, "What do you think Scotty means by this song"? He replied,"It means you love your hometown and I love my hometown too"! It was music to my ears. We've talked about all of Scotty's songs on CAD and what they mean. They tell a story that I think we can all relate to in our life. I have to say every time I see a sink full of dirty dishes and clothes piling up after a long day of work - I just chuckle and say I am thankful for them. I am so pleased that Scotty has come into my life through his music. My family and I feel very blessed.

    1. My dear girl, you have hit the nail right on the head. Brought tears to my eyes. I am old enough to have to "remember" those blessed days when the doors were slamming and happy kids were running about. Thank you God, for Scotty and his family. And thank you for fine young people like the Big Fan in CT.

  34. This was part of Matt Bjorke of Roughstock who reviewed Scotty's Clear As Day Album last year. Please take note of what he said about Water Tower Town :D :

    Scotty McCreery’s album wouldn’t be a modern country album if it didn’t have a proud of my small town kind of song and that’s exactly what “Water Tower Town” is but you know what, it doesn’t say that if you’re not country this or cities are bad that, instead its’ a nice sweet song about any Small Town, USA town with lyrics done in all the right ways. It also doesn’t hurt that it has enough hooks to get 500,000 people singing along and certainly feels like it could join “Out of Summertime” as a single for next spring/summer, along with Scotty’s cover of Keith Urban/The Ranch’s single from 1997, “Walkin’ The Country.” And while this one may not be as ‘raw’ as Keith Urban’s original was, it’s still a really good song and you know what? It’s a good pair for the small town life but it’s more about unplugging and unwinding with the one you love and who can’t relate to that?

    1. Yes! It's a great get your feet moving song and consider that he may release another single in June or July like YMTLG or OOS, you never know. I think his management team is doing right by him...I think 2 gold records and a Platinum album aren't too shabby.

  36. I love this song - I don't live in a water tower town,but everyone can relate to something in this song - in Texas, Friday night football is king, and we do drink cold sweet ice tea - probably still the best seller of any drinks. All the establishments (fast food to elegant dining offer ice tea), lots of pick up trucks used for work - wish I could say crime is low - I really do love this song - this one and Back on the Ground are still my favorites on his exceptional CD

  37. I am from a WTT and I admire Scotty for wanting to give back to his home town..There is a country artist out now that is from my WTT he has never given a concert here nor has he ever mention his WTT he still has family here and if comes to visit he is in and out .He did have some friends from here in one of his videos but was not filmed here.These people supported Scotty before we ever heard of Scotty.He will be moving on with his life soon I'm sure but he will never forget.I really like WTT but i like anything he sings.

  41. I think that WTT is a great choice for Scotty's third single. It also makes a super opening song when he is on tour, & solo concerts. Can hardly wait to here him sing thursday on AI. It's about time that the radio stations get a grip, & realize that his music is here to stay. Love that young country artist!!!
