    1. I think you can still purchase WTT as a single. I think you can purchase it as many times as you want. I think I have read posts from other fans where they said they purchased his last single several times.

    2. You can call your local radio stations and request it but always request nicely and only once a day or the dj's get upset. If you do not know the phone number of your local station you can just search online for the station using their call letters (like Wolf 105). Then look on the stations website for how to request a song or the request line phone number.

    3. You can purchase the same song as many times as you like.

  4. has anyone heard Scotty's water Tower Town on the radio? I don't understand how he ha s so many fans ,won new artist of the year,yet i have not heard his song once.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I also dont understand. Is there any concerted effort... from most of the radio stations dj's not to play his music? Could this be the people who would prefer music that talks about sex, immorality and alcohol and they get burned listening to Scotty's clean music? I am upset again.

    Another thing to consider by his recording company and mgmnt team is to make him appear on national television. There's still a lot who is not aware of Scotty's presence in the country music world.

    More exposure....and this is the time that we as his fans work harder to make his name be a household word.

  6. I called my radio station today & requested Water Town Town & the DJ said "What?" I said Water Tower Town by Scotty McCreery & she said she'd "look around for it". I just don't understand it - thank goodness other stations will play Scotty's songs because this one plays Trouble with Girls in the middle of the night & that's it. Not a whole lotta people listening at 3 in the morning.

    1. I think that some of these DJs are totally out of touch . . . Country Music is their industry, their business, and many of them are truly clueless . . . Let's face it: Some of these people live under rocks . . . We need to lower our expectations . . . To succeed, we must understand who we are dealing with . . . Of course, it is entirely possible that some of these people are Playing Dumb . . . and the only time that a light will come on is when they get PAID--Pay for Play--and until then, they will act Clueless . . . They will say they have never heard of the song and never heard of the singer!!! . . . We have lived a year without hearing Scotty on the radio . . . Maybe radio ain't what it used to be.

    I think is management need to get on the ball,no new video,and the radio stations don't even have his new single yet.It' a shame .A kid wins new artist of rhe year and these radio stations don't even have one nice comment to say ,or promote him.They need to drop back some on his going to college,and promote his singing career more .He won't get this kind of opportunity again.Soon they'll be promoting the next winner of idol.I feel they should have had some kind of video out there to promote his new single,They could have even taped the live version that he did on idol,how hard could that have been to tape it.he's manager needs to step it up he should get on the ball and find out the problem within these radio stations His song is a hundred times better than sone of the garbage they play all day long.

  8. Since there is already an official Scotty fan club Site that we should also make a blog there so that his recording Co. & mgmnt team can read and be able to do somthin about it. I know that Scotty is less than a year in the business but Kelly Clarkson has such wonderful management team n her mgr is Reba Mccintyre's husband. Kelly is all over the charts and national TV shows. I really hope that Scotty will be known to ALLl not only to "many" because he truly deserves it and he is FAR BETTER than other artists.

    I hope that he will be able to have a SIGNATURE SONG in his 2nd album that will create a stir and sell not only in USA /CANADA market but international market as well. Not necessarily a crossover song ( like Taylor Swift's songs) but something like Dolly Parton and Glenn Campbell whose music is popular outside of USA.

    3. Kelly clarkson is a pop singer. Much easier then country. Carrie underwood took 2 years for them to recognize her. Its country music for ya.

  9. Calm down folks. This is the first official add day for WTT to radio stations. He has 12 so far with a couple more hours of adding to go. This is really good, and is better than The Band Perry's adds for their new single last week of 4.

    You have to understand that most DJ's have NO say in what is played. The PD's add songs and comprise the playlist. DJ's just gab and play what they are told to play.

    WTT will do fine. Everyone relax, and do not agitate your local station, or bombard them with too many requests. Be nice, polite, and gracious...like Scotty.

    1. Where did you get the "12" number? Where can we see who has added WTT? Thanks.

    2. Thank you 1:08pm. I think people are being a little alarmist in their thinking. Scotty's management, I think has done right by him, they can't make the radio stations play the song. His sales say it all...they're fantastic. His two new artist awards..speak for themselves. Let's just relax, I know we get hyper about Scotty because we all love him so much but lets remember he is doing great...all of this will work itself out.

      Delete
    3. I agree... his voice is too good to be denied! As more and more people hear his music through concerts, tv appearances, radio, cd sales he will acquire fans for life! He's special.

  10. Water Tower Town has been added by 20 stations today. Off to a good start, McCreerians! For one, it surpassed TTWG in its first week for radio ads. Second, the radio stations which were hesitant to play TTWG before are the first ones that added WTT today. With the exception of WQDR, of course. LOL!

    I have heard it many times played. Nothing was changed. The same thing you've heard in the CD....but of course, it's different when you hear from your local station. And Scotty is asking you to twit to them a picture of your local water tower to them. By the way, the water tower pics is trending in the US now.

    Let's continue to BELIEVE! Let's continue to request through - mediabase online request panel that you see in this site, phone, twitter, facebook, text....BUT PLEASE DO YOUR REQUESTING IN A FRIENDLY MANNER. DON'T LOSE YOUR PATIENCE/COOL.

    Just like I've said before, McCreerians other names are: PRAYER, PATIENCE, and PERSEVERANCE.

  12. WATER TOWER TOWN WAS ADDED TO WPOC TOP 5 AT 8PM IT SHOULD BE # 1 SCOTTY IS LEADING

    1. Yet it doesn't show up on WPOC's mediabase list.
      I am curious where people are getting these numbers (12 and 20) of the stations who have added WTT.

    2. mediabase has another site that reports all monitored and activator radio stations. last week, there was 1 activator radio reporting that added WTT. this week, there were 15 monitored radio stations and 4 activator radio stations adding WTT, making it 20 in all.

    3. To 4:12. http://addboard.mediabase.com/SongsMenu.asp
      This is where they are seeing the adds. Go there and click on add song. The site is very slow so just wait. Then towards the top click the little circle by artist and type in scotty mccreery. Then wait again-very slow. Then a list of his songs will come up. Click on water tower town to see the radio adds.

    1. He is working on it now but from what I have heard it is not due out until spring or fall of 2013. Unless his label figures this album has done all it can and rushes the next one out earlier than planned

    2. I hope they take their time with this second album to perfect the sound to show case scottys voice at a higher volume. Some of the back round music some times drowns hom out. When he sings live with the band its awsome. Cad is still doing well its to soon.

  14. I found this new video from the Sea world show. I only bring it up because Scotty is singing WTT and the video shows how excited the girls were at the front of the stage (it's really close up). Really fun to watch.

  15. Unfortunately, I won't hold my breath that our one and only country station will play any of Scotty's songs any time soon. When I graciously asked the DJ to play him, he at first acted like he didn't know him and then he said oh the good ole boy from NC and laughed then said unkindly I'll try to see if I can play him. I told him that I was excited to have a country station in our area and have gotten new listeners for them because we are playing the station all day at my business. It would make my day to hear Scotty on the radio!

    A few days later, I asked a young female co-worker to call and request Water Tower Town or any Scotty song. The same DJ again initially acted like he didn't know who Scotty was then started hamming it up with her and told her they couldn't play Scotty because he wasn't on their playlist nor was he expected to be on it any time soon as he laughed about it! She said well he just got New Country Artist of the Year! He said that the award is fan voted and not a big deal to them. Light-heartedly, she said, oh well you should tell your advertisers that. I'm sure they wouldn't like to hear you say that an artist that has a huge fan base isn't being played when you advertise for them. He said she should call his parent company and maybe they would put it on his play list and he might play it. Wow and they wonder why people listen to satilite radio!

  18. I just saw that he moved back up from 67 to 21 on Billboard's Top 200 and from 26 to 3 on Billboards Top 40 country albums. I am talking CAD here. He must be gaining a lot of new fans. Let's just sit back and "BELEIVE". After all, Scotty does!

  20. Maybe Scotty and his family are in no huge hurry to push him to the limit in his career alone. He likes some time with his friends, graduating high school and trying to be as normal as possible while maturing into the GIANT ARTIST we all know he is and will become. Let's be patient, as has been said here, and allow him to grow up gracefully as his life has changed so very much. Although he loves his life, we know it must be stressful. Scotty knows where his talents come from and believes in the direction he is taking. Let's sit back and watch!

    1. I was just about to say the same. I think his management team/producer would like to do things differently, but they have to work around Scotty's college. None of what is happening now was anywhere in his plans or even imagination, and things are moving fast, I think too fast for him. He doesn't have a career yet, he is just starting out. Let's see what happens. So many artists/singers work hard and struggle on the road just to get their name out there and establish themselves. It is very competitive and fans come and go. I think that if college was not a factor of importance that he would be doing so much more. He's young, still a kid really. I mean, if he had auditioned on AI with the intention of becoming a star now, like all the other contestants on these shows.....but he auditioned because he just wanted to get the judges feedback on his singing. Only things turned out differently and not what he expected. I'm sure he is happy and grateful, just trying to balance his life. Let's see how it goes.

  21. I see Mike and Scotty have tweeted thanks to radio stations that have added WTT (Mike has listed more). But some of them do not show up on the Mediabase request page. One of them I have requested by typing in WTT so I'm happy to see from the tweet that they have added it, although I don't think they have actually played it yet. Hope to see it listed in their Mediabase request page soon.

  23. WTT is a good song, but it's not a strong song in terms of listening appeal. I like the song, lyrics and all, but if I were in the music industry this would be my opinion.

  24. Some of these radio people are right in saying these awards are fan voted, and the real test will come when the CMA recognizes him. I think that's what it will take for some of them. But if that's a request I still don't know why they don't play his songs. Some people just can't rejoice in his success, they feel he's made it easy with AI. True, AI gave him a start but still people are buying his records and so what if it's young girls and grandmas, which are not the only ones who like his music. He is just so much better as a person than so many who want to sing about partying, sex, drinking. He knows it isn't going to always be easy...he was well informed by his guitar teacher what to expect. We just need to be patient and support him in all ways. HE WILL SUCCEED.

  29. Kudos for Scotty for wanting to finish high school and for levelling that off with his music instead of putting his music first. I love the fact that he does not want to give up his college life. I was there, those were some of the best days of my young life and the lessons learnt and friends met helped me tremendously in my adult life. Scotty is doing fine. His beauty inside and out is beyond words. Nothing can beat that. Let's stick with young man as he is an example of what we want in this world today. I know that I am behind him 100 percent and I will purchase any song that he puts out as he tries to put smiles on the faces of as many people as he can.

  30. I posted earlier about the radio station asking us to call the parent company to get him on their playlist. I am sure Scotty will be a mega star in the future if wants to be, but my comment was directed at the radio stations. I just dont understand how he won both Best New Country Artist Awards since December and isn't automatically added to every list. It would seem to me that advertisers would want to be heard on stations that play ALL artist including NEW to attract a bigger fan base. That is exactly what Scotty has done. Scotty's talent and overall appeal will win out with all groups eventually. I was just surprised at the attitude and the fact he wasn't automatically on their playlist. I heard several of the same artists in an hour which is fine, but it would be nice to hear a few others, too.

    I was very excited to see CAD move up in the charts. It has brought a lot of joy to my life. I try to post comments on all the sites that sell CAD so new listeners can get excited to buy it.

    1. I don't understand the industry, but I think it's something like television networks, syndicated. You know how on TV the networks show the same movies or reruns over and over and over and over, PLUS tons of advertising? So I think radio now is something like that (I could be wrong). Unlike before where one could just call in and request a song and the dj would play it. Now they have "playlists." They're also having to compete with technology, e.g., cd players, iPods, YouTube, internet downloads, iTunes, etc.

      I think eventually they will play Scotty's songs more.

    2. Just adding that I think it's really impressive and amazing that his debut album CAD has stayed in the Top 10 BB country chart. Now it's back up to #3!

  31. Scotty is way above most success wise. His album is platinum, 2 gold records, sold out concerts, screaming and loyal fans galore, new album coming out soon, on and on and on - all things positive. Radio does not rule his popularity nor anything else about Scotty.

  33. I have been mulling over something since the ACM awards. Is new artist not elgible for best album? I have been watching the charts and he has been beating out Four the Record by Miranda Lambert. CAD has been at the top of the charts for the longest time and it went platnium. Someone who has an answer, please let me know.
