Scotty McCreery Snags Most Fan Votes to Win Best New Artist at 2012 ACM Awards


By Cristin Maher
After a heated battle with other up-and-coming country artists, Scotty McCreery managed to garner the most fan votes to take home the Best New Artist trophy at the 2012 ACM Awards. McCreery, who has gone on to top the country charts with his debut album and single after hit single since winning season 10 of ‘American Idol,’ was absolutely overjoyed to be crowned the Best New Artist at the ACMs, and he could hardly contain his excitement.
After knocking out Thompson SquareJT HodgesDavid Nail,Jerrod Niemann and Justin Moore out of the competition, Brantley GilbertHunter Hayes and Scotty McCreery were the only nominees left in the running for Best New Artist. Last year’s winners the Band Perry announced ‘The Trouble With Girls’ crooner as the ACM’s 2012 Best New Artist, and he practically ran up to the stage, but not before he shook hands with Hayes and Gilbert like a true pro.
As he took the silver ACM award with a huge smile on his face, McCreery went on to verbally thank his fellow nominees Gilbert and Hayes, saying it was an honor to be nominated alongside the musicians. Looking dapper in a black vest, tie and button-up, McCreery said, “[I have to] thank my good Lord and savior, Jesus Christ… country radio… [and I have to] thank the fans. You rock!”
Way to go, Scotty! All of us at Taste of Country are so happy for you!

  8. ALL of us at Taste of Country are so happy for you? How about the guy last week who wrote that absolutely awful review of Scotty? I guess he can just EAT DIRT! The fans know what they like, and they love Scotty.

    Did you notice the audience response when Scotty's name was read as one of the nominees? Way more applause than for the other two guys. So happy for our boy, and didn't he look GREAT!

    1. I so agree. Yes, Seems like TOC now wants to lick our buts and tries to please Scotty and his fans. They might have realized the power of him and his fans and that NOTHING and NOBODY will be able to stop Scotty´s career and positive influence. There´s Scotty and there´s love and light

    2. If anything negative reviews only pump us up to vote harder and support him more. it defintely kept us on our toes, I LOVE proving people wrong, and I think Scotty does that (and with such poise and grace) time and time again!!

    3. You´ re right there. We certainly got stirred up. Tthings might just happen for a reason. Yes, I admire Scotty´s gifted way of social interaction. I´m older but he is so much better. amazing

  14. You need to let go of the nasty remarks about TOC,it's not helping Scotty.A man gave his view,and it's over.It'S in the past.To me TOC likes Scotty they wrote so many nice articles on him since he won idol.He needs there support to inform,people on his career ,they let you know what he's up to,and I've enjoyed, so many of there articles thru out the year.It does not look or sound good reading all those comments.The christian thing to do is to forgive ,and forget.i love Scotty,and I like taste f country also.So try to let go of the anger,and move on'

    1. I agree. Other than that one article by that one guy, TOC has been very supportive of Scotty; gives him tons of positive publicity.

    2. Scotty Congrats. You was fantastic last night last night, I knew U was going to win. U looked so handsome and get plenty of rest at the beach.

    3. I'll forgive billy when he apologize a to Scotty and his town. I don't have a problem with toc but billy that's another story. I will not support any articles he writes he should not be alowed to write about Scotty when he doesn't like him.

  15. TOC in general has written a number of nice articles about Scotty. BD writes his own reviews of whatever/whoever and is entitled to his own viewpoints (which may not be to our liking). I read that review of his and although I disagreed with it to some extent, I did not find it "nasty." To me it's like ST on AI and his obvious biased preference for another contestant and who continues to be rude towards Scotty's win. I don't think it is personal to BD/ST - they just don't think Scotty has "IT" - On a note, I am really disappointed (to use a milder word) that some people keep trying to make it appear that Scotty came close to losing the title last season, when in fact the difference in the final votes was huge and never disclosed. One thing is for sure (and they should get this by now) - the "crazy" "insane" McCreerians RULE! WE ROCK! :) YEAH!
