Jason Aldean, Taylor Swift, Scotty McCreery

Five months remain in 2012, and while there have been many huge albums released this year, it seems the best could be saved for last. New albums from Jason Aldean and Taylor Swift are just two of the projects rumored to be available before the Christmas rush. Which new for 2012 country album are you most looking forward to? 
Also included in today’s poll are the upcoming Christmas albums from Scotty McCreery and Blake Shelton. While there are no release dates on either, it would be a serious marketing error to push those projects to stores after Dec. 25. Darius Rucker is another country crooner with a much-anticipated project expected in 2012. If there’s another upcoming 2012 album you’re more excited about, tell us about it in the comments section below.

  9. Did anyone take notice on the most passionate fans poll how B.Gilbert jumped into first place just like that.All week he was loosing and he jumps 10 points overnight.No way do I believe that vote ,he sure doesn't have that many fans.That who every one else who wasn't on the list jumped on the band wagon just to make sure Scotty or Taylor didn't win.No way can someone jump that many points.

    3. The contest was making sense for a while....now it doesn't???

    4. A lot of these polls are to get fans to visit the web sites - i think the more important fan votes are for major awards, e.g., aca, acm, cmt, etc.

      Delete
    5. Agree with 1:55, I can see where the Swifties were beating us....but a push at end like that for BG doesn't fit. Also agree with 2:23, that it is the most impt awards that count. But TOC can't possibly be handling these contests responsibly if BG just happens to jump by huge percentage in one night. I am not the type to accuse of unfairness without caution....but this is over the top. I've gotta agree that these sites use polls like this to pull visits to site, but why would they mishandle....unless there is agenda going on with record labels. TOC is random in who and when they promote an artist, I tend to think they work hand in hand with record labels and push who needs the promo at certain times, like w/new releases etc. Tim McGraw is definitely the "It" guy of the week....and apparently so is BG. Another thought is penalty pts as mentioned....it always concerns me that fans who are going to lose on whoever their supporting cld throw these contests by excessive voting for say Scotty and Taylor...but how wld that push just BG up so much and not the others with lessor scores?

  10. More likely tan not those who 's artist name wasn't on the list who don't care for Scotty or Taylor I'm sure went for Gilbert at the end.There is no way all week he was at 17 per cent ,.and the last day he came up with all these fans.Last hight he wasn't even in the running. No way does he have more fans than Scotty or Taylor.

  12. It's all rigged. They are just trying to make fun of us I guess.

  13. Need help on WPOC. I'm not sure about all these polls,yes I do think they are rigged to a certain extent. The main concern is that he gets more radio airplay and I don't know what its going to take to do this. I read on MJs blog that Scotty is no longer under management of XIX, this is not official and I'm sure if this is true that Scotty's team will make an official announcement when needed. Just a little concerned, hope that he gets a good team that will work in his behalf and get him the right song that maybe radio will take notice. I love all of his songs but apparantley radio does not agree with me. I think he is such a talented, genuine person and from what I have seen of his videos while performing, he has become quite the performer. Lets just all pray for him. I really enjoy listening to him and have loved every minute of following him in his career.

    1. I heard that too, and there was some speculating that he may have gone to the same management as Brad Paisley and Vince Gill. If he has, I love the sound of that! Whereever it is, I wish Scotty all the best in new management! One thing I'm quite sure of, its been well thought out!

      Delete
    2. I think XIX came with winning AI - maybe the contract was up and he had the option to stay with XIX or move to a new management team? I hope it works out for the best -

    3. I've heard the rumors also; some were even saying he'd been dropped...like who wld be stupid enough to drop Scotty at this juncture?..If there is change, I'm sure it was made with caution and much forethought from McCreery family and will be in Scotty's best interest. They seem to have been on top of business end of things straight out of the gate. If I recall they brought in lawyer(s) b/f the thought of signing contract....knowing them (well not really knowing em) I'd expect they were rounding up the viable team right around time of Scotty's hometown visit for finale three, if not before.

      Delete
    4. 4:48 PM I also heard about this rumor of being dropped and from what was said, usually management does not drop artists, it is usually labels that do that. Some seem to think that maybe he will go with a well known Nashville management team. I just hope that whatever decision they make it will be the best for him and I'm sure it will. Scotty's family is very involved and I feel like they are going to look out for him.

    5. I've always had in the back of my pea brain that Scotty will eventually go all spiritual music and be a gospel singer. Anyone else have those thoughts?

      Delete
    6. no way gospel are you kidding me .

      Delete
    7. It seemed to me that he was torn for awhile, but he said this is where God wants him for now..He doesn't have to sing all gospel to touch people!..His beautiful spirit just radiates the love of God!.. And he reaches more people doing this! AND he just gets better and better!..I believe he has and is a gift from God!

    8. Scotty was never dropped if anything be opted out to go with new management . I wish some of you fans on here would get the facts before go making such ludicrous statements.

      Delete
  14. Probably those whose favorite didn't make the list,also I would have to go with some of them on the list who seen there was no hope for there artist to win.They all jumped on the band wagon. there was no way they could get 14 points at the end that or it's rigged.

    ReplyDelete
  15. So many polls, forgot about wpoc last couple of days, darn! Also 'Pop Crush, who was the best American Idol'. I think we got in on that one a little late,
    Scotty is third...Kelly and Phillip are ahead but in my mind Scotty's win and the tour that followed were the best. Who will ever forget the 'Phillipines' and the response he got there. It was deafening!! Yay! Scotty!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. fOr sure every one that didn't have there favorite artist on the poll jumped right on the band wagon to push Gilbert over the top.The radio stations did that a way back since the new artist awards ,promoting Gilbert for months,while ignoring Scotty.No way when all week he didn't budge an inch on the poll then he gets 14 % right before the poll is over.There were no point deductions you could only vote once.There are a lot of jealous country fans out there,and I wouldn't doubt if some of the losers fans since they couldn't win jumped on the band wagon also.They would rather see anyone else get it except Scotty or Taylor.

  17. WTT was #3 on WPOC tonight LA'S song #2 The DJ said to request and vote more to move WTT up the list!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I have been voting on the WPOC for Scotty, and when I voted today there was some other artist fans have begun to vote for their artist. We got to stay on top of things. When Scotty put WTT out they did not give him no help on TOC like they did LA. They gave her the showdowns,and they could come back within an hour and vote again and the song would be playing on 33 different stations. Scotty need a showdown too so his song can be played on 33 different stations, fair is fair. This stuff is to political for me. We got to keep voting and requesting for WTT to be played on radio stations. GOD BLESS U SCOTTY.

    ReplyDelete
  19. 9:20 PM I see what you are saying, I think these polls are good but I think the ones that are the most important are the ones that give WTT more radio airplay. I'm afraid if something doesn't happen soon WTT is going to go recurrent, from what I have read on MJs blog. So I think this is where we need to focus in my opinion.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I don't see him going all gospel. He loves what he is doing now. He needs to get new music out to keep fans. The die hards will wait patiently but those who have recently come on board may not stay if he doesn't put something new out. One reason is because the new fans haven't gotten to know Scotty as we do and have not seen the growth we have or the poteential that is there. If you've followed him from the start you will wait. But if they just heard him in the past couple of months or so and liked what they heard they may only stick around waiting for so long. They don't have his best interests at heart. Some people just want the music. Hopefully the radio stations will turn around soon and contrary to what some have said before, he can use the help of other stars, like Brad, inviting him on tour. (Some people were saying on this site that Scotty doesn't need anyone, he has God).So far there hasn't been any clue as to whether anything in that area is in the works. I don't know that for sure, but!Also hopefully we will know soon as to whether he has new management is true. Personally I think he could use new management. IMO.

    1. Ditto as well...too funny....some ppl seem to project their personal religious views onto Scotty and the rest of us at times........we ALL need others (tend to think that was what God had in mind with that love thy neighbor as thyself concept) and it's been my experience that God most often works in people's lives through our associations with others(be they saints or pains in the butt). I also agree with you about some new management. I was hoping Scotty would at least have opportunity for new mgt. after first yr post AI. That gig has left the bldg. and I do realize that Scotty gives em kudos for his start, but he has also emphasized desire to establish himself as independent artist outside of AI affiliation, which he has done to extent possible within first yr.

  22. 10:17pm Who said anything about him going gospel? That's a new one to me! Also, I think your over-reacting, when I look at the results of all his concerts, one sell-out after another eg: at this Pig-gig couldn't get over how jammed packed the crowd was! Biggest crowd in its history... but that's how it is everywhere he goes! Its simple people love Scotty's singing! He's good, period! And for those who attend his concert, it appears they buy the album instead of just his single! And that's even better! No use fretting about WTT, its hovering around top 40 and we'll just have to wait and see what happens with it! A few more months and we'll have his Christmas album and it'll sell like hot-cakes!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. 9:48 said he or she thought he might go gospel. But I agree somewhat with 10:17, he needs new music. I think he'll make it, but he could lose some fans if he doesn't get new music soon. He doesn't even necessarily need a whole album but a sinlge right away or do some other covers at concerts.

    1. I agree with need for new music. Watching the pig gig, it's like Scotty is ready to change things up a bit as well. Of course I don't know, but watching, it was like he was outgrowing his old music a little...and wanting to spread his wings more. I don't mean that we all won't always love ILYTB,etc, but he's a growing boy/artist after all. His confidence has soared recently and no doubt touring with BP and BP has been big part of that.

      Delete
    2. I had the same thoughts - but I think that Scotty knows what type of songs he wants to put out, based on what he has said about all those country greats who have influenced him - which is why he has said that he wants to be more creative with his 2nd album - right now he has to work with CAD, which is really a good album of songs, and the few cover songs -

      Delete
  24. That is the point being made, not that he isn't good and doing well, but he will outgrow his music now. I would love it if in his concerts that he change up and do afew covers he did on Idol. Like Can I Trust You With My Heart, or I Cross My heart or do some other Elvis Music. Watching the AI Tour Videos, it got a little tiring with the same songs and some outfits. Scotty I didn't mind hearing his songs over and over. Now though, he needs to add something different.

  25. Well, I see no need to worry. I see everything is fine and taken care of. Scotty and his team are aware of need for new music and that´s why they are in the process of producing a Christmas album to be released in october and the next Scotty album to be released in spring. I expect plenty of buzz and media exposure ( fx X-mas TV performances, reviews etc ) and there will be plenty of new Scotty music to enjoy. It´s all good :) Chrissie

  26. I have noticed some regular commentors have been missing and I am wondering if it because of the removal of comments recently, It's too bad. I am up half the night and the last time I checked there wasn't anything negative. Some people said they'd like to see him do something in a video that's not Garner related. What happened after that I don't know. Unless something is hurtful people should be able to give an opinion or state what they'd like to see or hear without people jumping on them. This discussion above is an example. It can get ugly if a person can't express their concern, wanting something new. I wish the girls would have left the comments if they were not hurtful or harmful. I think it's good to hear how people think. They are necessarily criticisms, just opinions.

    1. I agree - I think with the 3rd single there seems to have been different thoughts I would say regarding the video and not the so much the song - At first Roman White was supposed to direct the WTT video, but something changed and someone else directed it - there was also that long wait for the video to come out too - But it's still all good and it will all work out - Scotty has been received well all throughout the SOLD OUT Virtual Reality Tour and solo concerts as well - I think his next album will showcase him as an artist -

      Delete
    2. 3:36 I didn't see anything neg. or offensive either; all seemed like a fairly interesting exchange of opinions. (maybe something awful posted later). There was some discussion of WTT. I wrote one of the comments and later read that someone felt offended by comments being critical of WTT. I did not see any of comments as critical. I said I felt WTT wasn't THE BEST choice for 3rd release, that I believed YMTLG wld have played stronger. That just doesn't strike me as critical. I didn't say bad or dumb choice; just not the best; but, my ultimate point was related to regardless of choice we were just going to have to work harder to get it to top of charts. I think that's being a darn good fan when I disagree with Scotty's choice but work harder to support him anyway. Other related comments were on same line. I do hope we can continue to voice individual perspectives as it's just boring to read the same repeated praise & prayer over and over. If I were Scotty, I'd want to hear sincere/honest (not rude) feedback. I know if McCreery's visit here it must look crazy to them at times; does to me. But over-all it's feedback to consider, regardless. Was thinking reading these comments that even if Scotty didn't win the most p-fan award, he no doubt has most fanatical and passionate fans whether TOC acknowledges it or not, LOL. Agree he needs new music. Plzd about C-album and will enjoy related performances, but not huge on C-music. I realize he's doing well,in many respects. Also understand repetitive tour sets and all that, but like comment below, I don't see why for his own concerts, he can't do different covers. Several of us are dying to hear CITYWMH & ICMH again. Seems like it wld be good to chg things up a bit. Like for Pig Gig, I was thinking it wld be cool to even hear "Your Man" again ONCE in a while. I support and adore Scotty, but I don't think he's the 2nd coming. Even he acknowledges he's still learning. And hey, if some feel he's overdone Garner, it won't kill him to hear polite perspectives. I think he was being true to himself w/WTT, but feedback might give perspective for future. If he considers it fine; if not; fine also. Think w/WTT he was willing to settle for less of "a hit" to make the point bout a community so very impt to him. However, some of us fans were wanting to see him blow paint off the walls and I just don't see how that makes us critical, negative, or not real fans. Feel we have a right to voice our opinions, esp. when buying and voting our tails off to support him. He's a big boy. He can handle it. I respect his choices even when I disagree. "Swinging" being classic example. It had meaning to him as explained; meaning to me was how I hated song and feared loss of votes for him. But I hit the phones harder that night (if possible)to help him out in case others felt as I did. I think some people are becoming too sensitive and possessive of Scotty. I mean do you go up to strangers and tell them what Scotty would want and expect them to do or tell them "Let's all just pray or think this or that" or insist others "let him" be or do this or that, as if they are somehow denying him some opportunity? Personally, I don't care what Scotty would want or expect of me in terms of my opinions, behaviors and Christian life. That's my call, just like Scotty makes his. So I certainly don't understand why some cyber fans, I'll never know, find it necessary to attempt to guide and shape my personal life. Guess my point is that fans differ and express differently and saying nothing but "positive" is being taken to extremes. The guideline is additionally being abused to serve the promotion of "another artist" , proven to be negative issue by any standards. If that's permitted, it's unrealistic to think it won't be disputed and another 130 comment rounds of insanity will ensue. Just MO.

  27. Scotty has a lot of different music on his concert tours.You can only do so many cover songs he has to sing the songs from his albums to promote sales.All the artist basically do the same Brad Paisleys concert tour is the same songs exccept he can change it up more because he has more albums .Scotty is just starting out and he is doing pretty darn good.Band Perry also does the same songs on tour. .all the artist do the same .An all gospel album would never work not at this time he would never keep the fan base he has now .

    ReplyDelete
  28. AChristian album with Lauren would put them over the top and then they could have time to write a little more and make appearances. Agree that he needs to get back on Today Show GMA etc in the prime media. Although we all will love him forever the music world is so changeable and the Christmas release will put him out there once again. Everyone just do anything and everything in his behalf. Let him continue to grow and develop even if it's not your cuppa!!

  29. I am curious where did some of you read that Scotty changed labels, was dropped or whatever? I haven't read or heard anything about that. He chose to go with Mercury, Interscope,19 recordings. He didn't have to. Maybe after one year with a label an artist needs to re-sign or pick a new label. I have no idea how that works. I trust the McCreerys to make the right decision for Scotty based on all the facts. He has done well so far, maybe just another level of expertise is taking place......

  32. MJS pointed out that Scotty's picture has been removed from interscope and David Cook is in that spot. That's where it all started! Someone pointed out too that if an artist is successful they can opt to change management after a period of time. Don't know how true that is! I hope Scotty has made a move, I think if he has moved to where Brad Paisley and Vince Gill are (can't remember the name of the management) it sounds like a way better fit for him! So if its true, and whereever Scotty goes, they'll be lucky to have him, and I wish Scotty the very best in management.

    2. Interscope Mercury is the recording outfit working with UMG Nashville, so basically the label - Team XIX was the management team assigned him when he won AI10 - I think CU is still managed by XIX, not sure though - I haven't read any official statement re management change, so if it is true, maybe that explains how things were going - I think any change probably has to do with Scotty's decision to go to college and also maybe the type of music he wants to pursue (in the direction of classic country) -

    3. Sorry, looks like I got that wrong, its the management team XIX where Scotty's picture has been removed. There was some talk that maybe it was an error in editing, but so far noone has said its been corrected. Also noted is that CU has been with XIX from the beginning and is still there.

    5. has anyone else noticed there is nothing on his schedule after October? I was thinking if he did change management, then maybe they will be responsible for filling the times. Hopefully he finds someone who can market his talent. The team he has now how done very well - can't complain at all but now he needs to get to the next step. He is selling out 6000+ venues, now is it time to test the 10,000 size ones. He needs to be the middle of a tour instead of an opener - new music is coming but he needs something on the radio right now.

  33. To me Scotty is doing just fine.His Christmas albums will cover your religious based songs,and I'm sure some fun songs for those who like holiday cheerful songs .Like rocking around a christmas tree ,,an album everyone can enjoy.Some focus too much on there point of view,not everyone is in, to or do they share the same religious beliefs.If he says a word out of place, some have him under a microscope analyzing every word,and every thing he does.He human like the rest of us,and no one is perfect.Acceptance of a person for who they are not what we want them to .I like him just as he is, he don't have to change a thing about himself to please me.To me he is A-OK.

We just get a little impatient, because we all like him and his music so well that we want things to happen now for him. He's had a tremendous amount of success for a new artist in a short period of time. Sometimes it takes these artist years to achieve this. I agree that Scotty doesn't need to change the person he is, he will grow and mature but I hope he always remains to true to his values and the person he is.

  36. Thanks for explaining that it was NOT the label, but the management team, which, if I understand it correctly is 19 Recordings. What do they manage? Him, his concert dates, what? As you can see, what I know about the industry would fit in a pea. I know Scotty has a tour manager. You see him in almost every video. However, I haven't seen him in Bay City, Mi photos....think he is from 19 Recordings, or hired personally by Scotty. Just don't understand this stuff.

  37. We all want him to do well and that is the bottom line here. However we have to express our thoughts because Scotty is beginning and the music world can be ever changing. What weakens this site is the deletion of anything that goes deeper than-What a CUTE guy! Too bad because we all can learn from each other and I am certain Scotty wants more from his fan base because he likes to be near us as opposed to other high powered stars of today who remain aloof and removed from the fans. Sooo, leave personal ideas intact here and perhaps a learning curve will develop. Really think alot of the younger managers need to study Thomas Paine in depth to see their folly. Great reading and application to honoring a young star like Scotty.

  38. Excellent! Brilliant! Just like Scotty, this site has done some great things, but there is still much to learn for everyone involved. Censorship of different ideas and opinions is not conducive to learning. Not that it doesn't have it's appropriate place, but too short of leash will choke the life out of this site or anything for that matter.

  39. Constructive criticism is good for anyone, as long as it is meant to help and not harm anyone IMO. I have read some of the responses above and I think it is good to get fans opinions and learn what they like and dislike. This information can be somewhat helpful in regards to new ideas. I am sure that there are many things that Scotty's team has not revealed to the public at this time about appearances etc. He probably has to have time for recording and remember last year there were scheduled appearances from Thanksgiving and Christmas that just popped up. I'm looking forward to the Christmas album but I also am looking forward to a new sophmore album. I wander if the Christmas album may have been something to tie the fans over; also due to many request for this. Hopefully this will give him more time to work on his sophmore album; it is so important for Scotty to get that #1 hit and you know I think he will do it.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  40. That will come with Lauren. It is a numbers thing and personal opinion need not come into it just the success of the music. Once that happens #1will be right there and they will go off and resume the solo stuff. The CMA 's will be right there so easy !!

    1. I would love a duet w/Scotty and LA! But I think it would benefit her more than him..And he might just do that for her!..Who knows?

    2. I don't think there is much that could seriously hurt Scotty's career with the one exception of a duet with LA. It would be tragic for him as the numbers show that is not a popular idea with the majority. The people that speak out for this duet do not recognize the great difference between the two of them. Those that see that great disparity don't say much at all but he is positioning himself so differently than she is and that is what draws people to him. He doesn't need LA duet to get #1 hit. He is just not going to associate himself professionally with an artist who is of such great controversy. It's just not going to happen. I don't think duet with Skylar would hurt him at all and I want to see her succeed and would be delighted if at some point he does duet with her. She is professional and it wouldn't lead to drama...so if it happens great, if not they'll both do well regardless. LA is riding on a slippery slope and I don't know how her career will play out but it's not somewhere I would want any artist I care about to be around...It's too risky.

    3. Trying to frighten is not the ways of Scotty. He is goodness and that goodness draws people to him. If these are good with no anger in the heart then he will be happy for them.

  42. As we have seen from comments here and there by far the majority of fans of Scotty don't want a duet with LA. He needs to still put out music as a single. I would hate to think that people would not buy a duet and he could lose fans. Some people have said they wouldn't buy it. So for now Scotty just give us your beautiful voice alone.

  43. Agree with 6:22pm and 7:33pm The singer I do like is Skylar Laine. Like someone said she's a firecracker on stage! Can hardly wait for her to debut on the country music scene. I think it was Tom??from Fox who interviewed Skylar and commented when she sang 'You Don't Have To Say You Love Me' that a lot of singers have tried to sing that Dusty Springfield song, and had trouble, but you nailed it. Somewhere down the road, I'd love to see her and Scotty together on stage!

  45. The same small number give out the negativity yet the two families love and respect one another so much. Scotty and Lauren have musical impact that cannot be denied and it will lead them to another level in the world of country music. Too bad a few people continue to base their opinions on the rumor mill. Check twitter and othersocial sites. Can't believe people continue this so long after Idol as if they know the truth. An example of how the net can pass on erroneous info and people believe it. These are good kids and good families and I really donot think a small faction of misinformed will ever hurt these two families and all they have had to deal with in regards to their precious, talented children.

  47. Scotty will never lose fans.People can sport different opinions. It is all about the music!!

  48. So many would buy anything that Scotty does It wouldn't matter..millions would love and appreciate anything he created solo or with anybody. That's a true fan not people who try to frighten and say no they wouldn't these are not like his kind personality who loves all people. They should learn from him. Scotty is very wise and good.

  49. 11:30, I disagree. There are some who detest her and would not buy their music. I am not anLA fan but if they choose to duet I'd still by it because I want to hear his voice. Don't be so naive.

  50. I think Scotty would pray for these people with all of the anger in their hearts and pray for that peace because he is truly different and practices and lives his faith.

  51. Is there ANYONE here who is getting this kid??? Remember the charities ? And the trip to south America and even way back to Idol and the coin toss? Come on Scotty does not hurt and judge. What the heck !!! There is a segment still not getting it..it really is unbelievable..are they all ten??

  52. to 12:26...did I write this? my exact thoughts. scotty is a big boy and can handle the feedback even if it's some constructive criticisms. Think he could do some more or different covers. your comments were right on.

  53. With reference to 11:03PM I don't mean to be unkind, but it amazes me, those who come here promoting a duet with these two speak of them together, like their little children, (it happens all the time) and now its because the parents of these children love and respect one another so much, these children together, will have a great impact. I don't want to look at Scotty as a child, he's considered an adult, he'll soon be 19, and he's never been the immature one of the two! His buddy Casey Abrams has been out doing his own thing for ever. If we were talking about a duet with a mature person his age, like Skylar, the conversation would be so much more in line with Scotty's maturity. Just the way I see it! Hope I don't get penalized for giving my opinion on this!

    1. Hope you don't get penalized as u express my sentiments as well. The rest of this negativity toward those that don't care for LA doesn't merit response. Talk about angry hearts, I'd say so when one puts forth negative, unfounded accusations on other fans using their own persceptions of Scotty's religous beliefs. to tell others how wrong they are; how he would want us to be and how disappointed he would be and how we should think and act is more reflective of what LA represents than anything I could say, so rally on, you make my point better than I can. I think it's sad this is what you draw from Scotty's faith. Religious abuse under attempted disquise of being positive and Christian-like reveals not only the angry-hearted, but the ugliness of spirit as well. Some defend LA saying the truth will shine through...well darn thing about that is that it's true. Do you really think that the rest of us our so blind, that we are going to absorb the judgements and attempts to manipulate via abuse of Scotty and religon and ur accusations. Are we to suddenly take ur thoughts as gospel as to how Scotty or Christianity really are and suddenly condone unacceptable behavior? Yeah, we're going to beg ur holier than thou forgiveness and turn on the lights of McLainaville first thing in the morning. Hold your breath for the surprise; it cld be a SM/LA duet.

  54. There continues to be an underlying negativity here for other artists. It is so off base and without merit totally based on hearsay. How tibia group manages to have this so called respect for Scotty and weld this anger is the opposite of this young man.Can' t imagine just how they all believe Scotty would approve of these feelings and ever reflect them. This is amazing to think people can honor an individual by using words like detest and hate. Scotty has demonstrated the absolute opposite since he began the journey. He may want to develop into a country star but he credits all the start up to Idol and those friendships he made there. Listen to his words and more watch his actions. These always show Christian love. Stop disappointing him by putting forth this anger for others. It is wrong and would NEVER be right in this young man's eyes.

  55. Never seen so much hooey about a country star before! If you truly adore Scotty be there for him and leave his decisions to him. I thought fans were suppose to enjoy the music?? He will give wonderful quality and that might be solo or with Lauren or anyone. I think Scotty intended to try to be close to the fans but the constant mean spirited attitude towards others will just drive that away. I would not be surprised to see him retreat in a protective mode in response to the daily negative ways constantly shown here. Putting others down is not his way all! Started thinking that perhaps there is a group who always dis Lauren but maybe they're Beiberites in disguise!!!

  56. Just wanted to say thT it is interesting to notice 100 remarks here that are not about the videos and only Two comment posted about Scotty's affiliation with the Driving Program for State Farm. Wonder what he would want his fans interested in.... And supporting??Scotty, do not ever change and I know you will try to forgive the misdirected fans and the gossip about your friendships. Love your musical abilities and the spirit in which you live your faith in every situation. You and Lauren brought so much to Season 10 and it touched many people.
