Scotty McCreery Water Tower Town, Radio, Requesting, Frustration .. OH MY

I've been reading the comments and can see the fans are frustrated, but I hope I can help shed a little light, and ease the concern.

From what I understand WTT doesn't go for official adds until April 9th.

1. Radio DOES love Scotty and have been very very kind to him
2.  A song gets played on TOP 40 COUNTRY WHEN it enters the TOP 40.

Request once a day to your LOCAL COUNTRY station. Don't over do it. DJ's HATE that. 

Check your stations websites for "Kick or Pick" battles.. That's where a song will start many times.

Be patient, he's had 2 hits of his first album and that IS BECAUSE RADIO AND PEOPLE LOVE HIM! :)

I understand how passionate everyone is about Scotty, and want the best for him.  WTT will get it's play, it's the beginning it just takes a little time. Together we can do it!! <3

  6. I'm sure he picked up a lot of sales from his Idol performance, too. Some of my co-workers watched Idol and ACM,who really don't get too excited about much, and the first thing they said was they thought he did a phenominal job on both shows and that they were very impressed. It was very nice to hear. They tease me a little(good naturedly) about being such a fan because it is very out of character for me and now they understand a little more as to why I like him so much.
    P.S. They voted for Scotty everyday for ACM award because they know how much I think of him.

  7. Water Tower Town is on the Media Base at KKBQ Houston today. I had been typing the request in, I didn't know it wasn't going to be available until April 9th. To vote go to: http://www.fanbuff.com/scottymccreery then click on Street Team scroll down to the Media Base listings. I vote every day. If his songs aren't an option I type it in. I've noticed that The Trouble With Girls has dropped off several of the options.

  9. It was explained that Scotty's video was in the top 20 for so much time and then it was retired. Well my Question is why do I keep seeing Chris Young and the song "You" every time I tune in, also "I can't be alone with You", ect. ect. The DJs did not play TTWG very much, its almost like it not what they want to do, I just wish one of them would explain it on the radio, so we could understand how this works, right now it seems they can make or break an artist!!!!

  10. In my opinion radio can make or break an artist. One day when I was listening to the radio a DJ commented that he liked the TTWG and the other DJ said I can't believe that. The radio station had TTWG on play positon 40 and then it shot back up to 22 on this station as it moved up the charts. I don't know anything about radio but I think the fans can make a difference if they keep requesting WTT. Sales will probably be down for this song since most of Scotty's fan own the CD but he may gain a lot more fans from the upcoming tour. The tour should help with play time for WTT. The radio DJs that have met Scotty seem to like him.

  11. In answer to 6:37, they retire the song if it's been in the no. one spot for so long. "YOU" has never been no. 1.
