 Nothing new here but hey it's Scotty & it's about his Christmas album - so I couldn't not post it.

  1. Hey everyone I posted my Canfield fair account of my experience at Scottys concert and a few really good post and uplifting comments a few post back there are about over 100 comments pretty good ones the insite of some of those commenters made me feel better about Scotty not getting nominated. The article is the one about his Christmas CD. Go check it out Scotty a fans united and set their differences aside .a few we're not nice but not enough to cause a ruckus.

  6. I'm disappointed blog w/disc. of CMA nominees was closed for comment. I saw few pxs developing. However, it's frustrating to close impt topic b/c another artist's fan attempts to defocus topic. The anger venting was moving toward some possible good that could come from this in terms of chanelling high energy of anger into motivation to view adversity as opportunity to fight harder 4 Scotty. Went to bed thinking of ideas as to how we can turn this around to blow paint off the walls w/precedent setting album sales. Several ideas, some big, some small, some that wld be challenging; some easy. If all put heads together and do something, this is great opp., not just 4 Scotty, but 4 McCreerians as well. If blg gets shut down, then it snuffs out building momentum. Despite wk-end blog, permitting us to speak our mind may eventually prove useful. There were some lessons learned this wk-end and more lessons remain. I believe eventually, if we have to register and become accountable 4 r comments and freedom of speech remains broad, the creme will rise to top; the middle will pull up to creme and remainder is waste, meaning they come only to harm and will go away, when a majority consistently prevails. Name reg. wld also pull us closer together and we'll start to recognize whose not r cup of tea, and steer clear or work thru the issue maybe. I did it w/one lady past wk-end..surprised me.
    Also wanted 2 address issue at clsd blg. A poster whom I believe well-intended suggested we vote for B & R, to show radio they can't get their way, believing radio to have positioned BG & HH for nominations in lieu of Scotty. Didn't thnk we had vote, but pt is many spent wk-end telling LA trollers that Scotty fans r not about trashing other artists. I meant what I said; that's not who we are: is it? While the majority (IMO) don't ever want to hear another word about LA, we aren't intent on undermining or hating other artists. I believe the poster to be true blue S-Fan but thnk she, like many of us, was just really angry at obvious & painful snub to Scotty. I would hope all who claimed no harm 2 other artists don't take frustration to the level of voting against HH or BG in anyway b/c of this. IMO, this isn't about who WAS nominated, it's about who WASN'T. I don't much care for BG's music, but he has huge fanbase and obviously worked hard to get em. HH has been working butt off for lg time and I do happen to adore him, but he's not all that country(as if that has anything to do w/nominees). The nominees didn't cause slight to Scotty. If anyone did (& I believe they did) it was within industry. If the industry had favored Scotty, we wld not have refused the favor, so why expect other artist to do so? BG and HH have been respectful of Scotty when he's stomped their butts (esp. HH). So my thing is that I hope we'll not give LA fans anything to fuel their fires. I hope we use our anger and frustration to put Scotty over the Moon so big and so fast the industry will still be scrathing their heads w/thumbs up butt trying to figure out who they're gonna shaft next. But they'll know it can't be Scotty b/c we push him up and out of their reach. While I can in no way extend LA this kindness, these other artist never did anything personal to Scotty and they want and deserve chances just like Scotty. Scotty had to pass and shake hands w/both of em when he won, as they stood defeated. To me, issue is with the industry and LA so insignificant, there is no issue. To live well is best revenge. I hope to talk w/Donna about a special tab for promo of album: a place to collaborate and get down to business. Have some other thoughts as well and hope we don't just set around saying there's nothing we can do and Scotty will be fine. Yes, he will be fine, but McCreerians can unite to make him SO FINE, these petty comparisons with country pop rockers will become insignificant.

  7. With all that said, I still have more...I'm not sure why blog where we were discussing the nominations was closed for further comments. I assumed it was because of a turn taken when someone posted bout LA..but could be wrong..so maybe I shd ask..Donna can you elaborate? The posts of blood bath over wk-end have remained (which is gd for a while I think) but don't understand why other one closed to comments so soon.

  8. Do you think sending out a single, i.e., Christmas in Heaven, would help album exposure? I hope he gets exposure in magazines like People. It's hard to understand why someone with a platimun album is ignored. I wish his managers all the best in trying to promote Scotty.

  9. 9:16: I wish mgrs well too; just wish I knew who they were these days...He'll let us know when time is right I guess, but I do feel there have been some changes. I had not thought of ur suggestion. It might help, I think which ever song paks most punch wld be the one w/ most potential. I think we're all thinking Christmas In Heaven is going to be the big one. Like I said when I get chance to catch my breath, I want to email Donna w/outline of my ideas and maybe talk w/her by phone if possible and see just how far we might be able to take this. I have one rather large idea which would take some organizing and I don't yet know how far we cld take plans...but where there is a will there's away if it's meant to be...I'm not releasing the idea yet lol as it maybe too BIG for us.... I've run into some obstacles in my head as I think about it, but that doesn't mean they can't be overcome once we get more heads involved. But I love the vision of this idea...I'm excited to talk w/Donna and get it out to u'll. It may work best if we get a tab for in and output of ideas...but we might need to set up a committee aside from communications on site. I'm even thinking if we cld get this going other Scotty sites might like to join in support. Hold tight and brainstorm for ways to make big sales happen for this album...I wrote in post last nite, Platinum is not big enough to send BIG MSG to M-Industry (apparently) so I say we come out of yesterday's dishearting news swinging and aim for double-P by Jan 5th. We always chat bout how to buy and gift more, so why not go bigger with our ideas...Big Sales require Big Ideas. If my thinking isn't absolutely foolish, I'll give some user name here for planning purposes. Thanks for reading essay and thinking bout this...if Scotty doesn't have radio, then fans r all the more impt.

    1. I think we need to hear the songs on the album and see what the response is in sales. I think its going to be huge! Then if this song 'Christmas in Heaven' is the best on the album, then its early enough in the season to have it out there as a single. But only Scotty's management can do that! You've lost me as far as knowing what fans can do to make that happen. Frankly, it would surprise me if Scotty's management didn't release a single from the album! I'm very optimistic about his Christmas Album. Notice he hasn't released another single yet from CAD? That's another reason I think it'll be a Christmas Album single! Sure hope so!

  10. What a bunch of make believe hooey. Now this place is filled with makeshift recording and production mongols!! Self appointed of course.... They sound ridiculous and self serving instead of on Scotty's side. Think I'll just sit back and rest until Scotty turns 21. Are they kidding bashing CMA?? The kid is so lucky to have captured the attention of them and Opry considering his age and experience! His success has been a mixture of his God -given talents And hard work. These Bozo fans are now hurting him with these farfetched plots. Would put my$$ on Scotty the almost 19 respectful kid before theese JAsss. Wow!!the audacity of these so-called fans!

  11. No wonder Sylin is so negative about other young stars and country hopefuls, She's one of the GIRLS. No surprise that the foundation is riddled with a nasty and unforgiving base. Too bad but Scotty is of another Ilk and someday won't need this kind of honcho manipulation of the public. They boo hoo and complain about others ideas but theirs are so negative and hurtful to the Country world. Scotty is light years away from this thank God.

  12. Whenever the stylin comments appear I truly shudder. There is another puppet that punctuates those thoughts and it is amazing how comfortable they are to slay others. It is all about the glorification of their own writings and articles. Sure Scotty sees through the haze.

  13. I´ve always known that Scotty´s got a deverse fan base. But I´d never thought it was THIS deverse. Come on, Mickey, let´s get out of here

  14. I think we need to leave things in Scoty and his management's hands. I do agree that HH and Bg deserve to be nominated, as difficult as it is that Scotty isn't. They have been gracious to Scotty when he beat them out. I still would like to see Love and Theft to win, ONLY to show radio they didn't win promoting HH and Bg so hard. But as said, I'd leave thing in Scotty's management to run his career.
