  14. I AM SO EXCITED AND PROUD FOR SCOTTY GETTING 2 NOMINATIONS. HE DESERVES ALL THIS RECONIZATION.

  15. So excited about this, I can't even....So happy for him. It's well deserved.

    On a side note: I couldn't listen to the game for some reason and I find out he got hit with a ball..that's upsetting. I read his Mom's tweet and she said he was A-Okay, so that's a relief. I'm sure he will get it checked out. He's probably going to have a big bruise.

  20. I am not surprised with the two nominations. Scotty has worked hard and deserves the recognition. Way to go, Scotty! Very, very proud to be a McCreerian!! Take care of that throat!

  21. Congrats to Scotty!

  22. I think this is fantastic. Do we all remember his album has only been out there since October 4TH? Some have an entire year to rack up the recognition. My selfish reason for wanting this recognition is because I love traditional country music, and I am afaid it is going the way of the phonagraph (sp?), or the 8 track......Scotty is one of the few hopes left!! LOVE HIM!!!!! There are many of us, I am sure. We have to keep pushing to keep it PURE.

  23. great job Scotty. its going to take these nominations to get radio to recognize this kid .

    ReplyDelete
  24. these polls that some may think are silly are really good they make people who are not fans of Scotty wonder who he is and why he is on all these polls along with radio. maybe they will listen to his music and become a fan.

    1. When I made the comment yesterday about poll being silly, I was only referring to this one by Billy Dukes on TOC.

      http://tasteofcountry.com/favorite-reality-singing-competition-readers-poll/

      I am constantly voting when its artists vs artists because this to me has merit. I just thought this one looked more like promoting Blake and The Voice. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    2. Nope your right.

  25. You have to see the behind the scenes promo for Scotty's appearance on Heart of Dixie.
    On Youtube under....CWtelevision

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yes, bad choice of pictures here. Looks like Blake is about to take on Scotty big time instead of being a reality show competition.

    ReplyDelete
  27. 6:51 am You are correct . . . We do not need a poll to know that American Idol is the top America singing competition . . . That TOC poll is a promotional for The Voice, plain and simple

    ReplyDelete
  28. Looks like they're ready to "duke" it out.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh, Billy Dukes, at least use the picture from the ACM awards.

    ReplyDelete
  30. The power of pictures..The Voice is winning.

    ReplyDelete
  31. There is no one on the list that has worked hard and a comprised so much in one year then our Scotty
    He should win both because no one on both lists has done it all in one year as Scotty has done.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Mac you are right. Please vote, because Scotty needs our love and support. Lets do it again. McCreerians/ grandma for Scotty lets vote as one. We can do it. Love you all from Granny2. God Bless you all....

  33. I am so proud of Scotty and his accomplishments. When I first saw him, I knew he
    was the real thing. Love his voice, his testimony for God, and just know he is
    the right example for our young people today. Love you Scotty- Win it all the
    Way!!

  34. Congratulations Scotty on being nominated at Billboard for Top New Artist and Best Country Album. His album I understand, is top 5 in all genres. Thats really an awesome feat after only one year!! This is the first nomination where there are no fan votes, just being nominated is wow! to win one of these awards, is like icing on the cake with all he's achieved already! I hope radio takes notice, and sees these awards and nominations are a good indication we want to hear Scotty's music.
