Scotty McCreery and Shawn Johnson connection

 Edit by Donna: Just wanted to add Mrs. McCreery's tweet to this post.


meeting just before rehearsal at Bridgestone CMA s tonight !


Below is the Shawn Johnson interview with Back On The Ground playing throughout parts of it. The song starts at :32 and goes in and out throughout the video.

Don't forget to watch the CMA Awards tonight at 8 on ABC to see Shawn and Scotty present.

  1. Thanks Tarah for all your doing here, giving us fans all this current news about Scotty and what he's doing. I remember this ad about Shawn and loved to hear Scotty's "Back On The Ground" playing in the background.

  3. Keep it up you are doing a great job, we love Scotty!!

  4. I think this is so cool!! I wonder who put that together?! It'll be so great for them to meet and talk about their similar experiences, but of course Shawn had been working on her dream a lot harder at a much earlier age obviously, but the "staying grounded" part in particular about their lives makes them have something in common that they can talk about a little bit. Of course, Scotty is going to be in the spotlight in country music for many years to come and Shawn has already been there and now is retired and will settle into the rest of her life more outside the limelight than Scotty. Cool though, very cool for them to meet. Scotty gets to meet so many cool people. So happy for him!!

    1. Such a cute picture. Scotty looks like a giant beside little Shawn. Looking forward to seeing them together as presenters! She's obviously been a big fan of Scotty and his music, since she played his song on her video for the olympics.

  10. Though there is nothing negative here, just want to mention this. Donna works 6 days a week and 1 day in college and is puzzled as to how to keep the negativity off this site. It is hard for her to constantly monitor every comment. Plus this week she lost a 22 year old cousin in death. So, she has a plate full and I ask that we forgo all the arguing, please. Enjoy tonight seeing Scotty on t.v. G-ma Dodie

    1. Can't agree more. We don't need the negativity here at any time, but especially right now. She's in my prayers for God to wrap His loving arms around her and help her through this hard time in her life. Sure appreciate all she does on this site...giving all of us our daily Scotty fix. Every time I watch one of the videos, I realize at the end that my face almost hurts from smiling so much. This kid just warms my heart.

      I think God gave Scotty a great voice and fame so he would have a platform to spread the Gospel, not just entertain people with his singing. He's doing such a great job of both.

    2. My condolences to Donna and her family over their loss of her very young cousin. That's very sad. I for one want to assure Donna that her and Tarah and the other girls do a wonderful job on this site. I truly believe it isn't the true fans of Scotty, that cause the very negative talk. Its those who would like to cause concern on this site, and would like to see the site removed Why? because its that good, for its fan support and and fans support of Scotty! I almost feel Todd, Scotty's new management, should look at giving Donna & team some type of wage for what they do here every day! This site reaches a lot of fans and it could be blown up even more with Todd's assistance. Just a thought if anyone this concerns, may read this!

  11. Yes, this is amazing for Scotty and Shawn. A great example of two young people giving out and award and they just end up together they are so much alike in one sense because of their families being behind them 100%. Today some kids don't know what its like for them just to be loved and these two young Adults are a Big Influence on todays youth they can just watch and listen to these two and know what kind of young Adults they are because they had parents who cared. Yay Scotty and Shawn I'm glad they put you two together. And Yes Donna You are great and our prayers are with you . Hang in there as Scottys says it will all work out. Well will be watching tonight.

  14. Scotty looked as handsome as always. The show was great with one exception and we all know what that was.Next year,Scotty!!! Congrats to HH and LBT both. They have had to work a long time to get their just dues. Scotty can hold his head high with all he has accomplished. He still has to pinch himself when he is in the presence of all those big names. Wish Luke Bryant had won Male Vocalist of the Yaer rather than Blake. He hasn't toured or had much else going on other than "Over". Luke deserved it, IMO. BP and Cu have the market in hosting the CMA's. They were great. Brad was hilarious, his bit about TS and their ganman dance. I laughed so hard. He really is an entertainer all around. All in all, good show. Tim and faith are great...wonder if their young daughters like Scotty!!

  15. I forgot to say as much as I love Lady A, I would have loved to have heard Scotty sing You Were Always On My Mind in tribute to Willie Nelson. Scotty's version on Idol was so emotionally touching. The Entertainer of The Year to me was a shock, but at least TS didn't win it.I jus don't get all the hoopla over Blake either. G-ma Dodie

    ReplyDelete
  16. I LOVE THE VIDEO. I ALSO LOVE THE NEW BANNER. THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN AWESOME TO HEAR SCOTTY SING ALWAYS ON MY MIND TONIGHT ON THE CMA'S BECAUSE SCOTTY DID AN EXCELLENT JOB ON AMERICAN IDOL WHEN HE DID IT. I WAS SHOCKED TO FOR THE ENTERTAINER OF YEAR, BUT I AM SO GLAD THAT TAYLOR SWIFT DID NOT WIN IT. BRAD AND CARRIE DOES AN AWESOME JOB WHEN THEY HOST THE CMA'S AND I ALSO LAUGHED REALLY HARD AT GANMAN DANCE TOO. SCOTTY LOOKED SO HANDSOME TONIGHT.

  17. Here's wishing Scotty a million hits this coming year and thereafter! Remember Blake's story that in the beginning, he couldn't get a hit for anything, and look at him now. He's come a long way. I like Luke Bryan better but am glad Blake won so many awards. Guess it was his year. It may be a long time before he does that well again. Scotty will continue to mellow out and get better and better and better and LOOK OUT, RADIO, HERE HE COMES!

  18. G-Ma D. What was the one bad thing? Referring to Scotty not being nominated for anything? I didn't watch, actually kinda forgot. I'm real sorry I didn't get to HH win new artist, was he gracious I'm sure or emotional? he's waited lg time for this? I'm happy for him. Know you're not wild for Blake, but I've recently come to like him more and more from watching The Voice, he's really supportive of all the artist and he's much more professional artist than I wld have ever imagined as he catches mistakes and directs well Just read a highlight that listed biggest double take of show was Blake as he just sat there in shock when announced as he really didn't expect to win. I know he comes off cocky to some, but he's pretty playful about it....guess I'm on the Blake cheer leading squad but I didn't used to care for him til I got to know his pers. better via The Voice. Ok will shut up about that, what did Scotty do, just an award presentation? What did he present? New Artist I wld think? Was he on red carpet? I'm lost on these awards as we were so focused on ACA's that I didn't realize til just last wk, Scotty wasn't nominated? Who did HH beat? This is the award that Scotty won last yr and thus not eligible this yr, right? Sorry I want a replay....shd have watched, darn it. Anything else missed?

    ReplyDelete
  19. I am sure this will replay many times.Scotty was on the red carpet alone! Scotty not singing or being nominated was the big disappointment. He looked sharp in a gray looking suit and dark shirt and tie, I think he had a tie, He and Shawn Johnson presented an award to Little Big Town, can't remember what category off hand, there are so many. It was for "Pontoon". I think the crowd was really in favor of Scotty and disappointed he wasn't recognized from the reaction. HH was very gracious and so appreciative, very humble. Parents were exciyed of course. He beat out Brantley Gilbert and some others, I'm tired and can't remember.You will see plenty about it tomorrow. I think you have expressed your fondness for Blake before and that is fine.I don't hate him. I like his song, "Over" and I like "Austin". He just isn't my favorite, that's all. That why there is variety, it'd be boring if we all like the same people all the time. Just not a Blake or Miranda fan. Her songs seem so inappropriate to someone who should be setting an example for young women. Guys and girls who sing so much about drinking and revenge are sending wrong signals. That is why Scotty is so special. I wouldn't want to tell my grand daughter to look at her example, but would tell my granson to look at Scotty's example. You must know what I mean. I love Luke Bryant but not some of his songs. I dislike Toby Keith because he sings about drinking all the time.Etc.

    1. G-ma Doddie: Thanks for the run down on Scotty and agree he looked nice in that type of suit and he did very appropriate job with presentation; didn't think he looked uncomfortable at all and just recognized the proper respect for his role there. Also thank u for the very nice recap on HH. I expected him to be humble and read that he also thanked the Lord. HH's parents must have been so thrilled. It was brought up on his CMT story that his parents had sacrified a great deal to support his career from chdhd and they apparently are far from rich. HH said they never let him know they were having to sacrifice so much. So very happy for all on that count. As for our somewhat differing opinions on Blake and Miranda, it's mostly just difference in people and I respect ur perspective. Just want to voice my perspective as well. I'm fond of Blake for his generous and kind support of new artists on The Voice and while I'm not huge fan of his music I think he's a bit misunderstood with his sense of humor. As far Miranda, I see ur pt about msg of her music at times, but I don't think that all artists are intended to be role models for the young and parents shd screen and teach. I look for what is in a person's heart as much as what is on surface. Not huge fan of her music but I have to say, that she was class act as noted in media for humility of acknowledging the great talent of each of the artists in her category individualy. And that is something any can learn from. Not meaning to be disagreable at all, just felt need to speak to my perspective as well and I always respect another's right to view differently when stated respectfully as u did. As far as teaching the youth, I do know what u mean & Scotty is excellent role model for that. And I have to admit that Toby Keith can not have done a worse video than red solo cup and his drinking songs are not my thing. But I so love his passion for his country, the troops and his courage to stand for his values even when it may hurt him personally. His song Red, White and Blue is controversial but it raises not just my own patriotism but get's the troops feeling proud of defending America. He does lot of songs to support USA and troops to honor father wounded in combat. He's also been married to wife for 30+ yrs, couches his son's team in sports and keeps family out of media. I think many artists who sing about drinking, still have strong values, character and morals. Although I don't condone the abuse of alcohol in any way: youth or adults. I am with u on Luke B, as I suspect we share the same distaste for Country Girl, but I don't know anything much about his character and what little I've heard was not so good, so no defending LB here, he's on his own. I'm much more disturbed with Aldean for position he put his wife in. Yes, I am seeing plenty about the CMA's but couldn't find much on HH's acceptance of award, so thanks again. Hope new mgt will have us talking bout Scotty more next time.

  20. G-ma D: Okay forget my tedious questions about who won over what nominees, I got that from the news highlights. I bet Gilbert fans are not happy campers as he was expected to win over HH through some predictions. Weren't these fan voted? I'm actually glad Aldean didn't win anything. I expected he would by what we saw on BB-200 last wk over 400,000 on album debut at #1 but I didn't care for way he handled whole cheating on wife deal, and his fans for most part cld care less which I don't get.

  21. Scotty did look so handsome he is the cutest young man. He has matured so much and omg he looked so muscular he must be working out again. Idk but he really did a good job and I am so very proud of him and hey Sotty has next year and with his album he is just a step away from going platinum, right? Way to go Scotty and we cannot wait to hear you sing at the Christmas Special. Hey I wish he could get a special on Tv like Blake did with his Christmas Album. Well he did so good presenting and we love you this Big Scotty. Hey ya'll don't forget to go vote for everything :):):)

  22. Oops I spelled Scotty wrong up at 12;51 Sorry should have proof read it huh? I didn't go back and check it. Sorry Scotty. ILYTB

  23. I still think that Scotty looked ill at ease and not very happy. He should have been a performer. I think he thought so too. I have seen him do much better, but I kinda feel that his feelings were hurt at the snub. I was not happy to see HH win. My family started laughing and said he sounded like Regis accepting an award. He was a bit much IMO. I don't believe he was gracious at all. I just wanted him to shut up. (Sorry,just my opinion). I am tired of Blake and Miranda winning all the time. I am happy that TS didn't win. There my sour grapes are all out in the open now. Scotty you will win next year!

  26. 12:32 No this was not a fan based award, otherwise I'm sure Scotty would have won. CMA snubbed him. Next year he will win. Just saw an interview on The Boot where Scotty was interviewed by some gal.She wasn't the best interviewer. Then LA and someone else joined her. They were all 3 boring, esp. LA. Not her forte, that's for sure. She intervied Shawn Johnson and Shawn is a huge LA fan from the beginning. LA also said George Strait said he voted for her on Idol???

    1. Where did you read George voted for LA .it seems funny Shawn would have Scottys song playing in the back round of her interview if she is such an LA supporter .where do to people get your info anyway?

    2. Shawn has said in several interviews that she is a huge Scotty Fan. I follow Shawn Johnson and have never seen her state that she liked anyone else, but Scotty. I'm sure she likes a lot of people, but she said she had a crush on him and would love to meet him when she was being interviewed at the Olympics. She loves country music so she probably loves many country stars.

      The fans were so loud when they walked out, I don't think they could hear when to say their lines. It was very loud!!! Way to go Scotty and Shawn. They did a beautiful job together.

    3. LA can say it, but I'll believe it when I hear it from George. I somehow have trouble envisioning GS watching and voteing for AI, let alone LA.

    4. Her label and her fans are trying hard to keep her in the limelight. Now I even saw a comment made on You Tube Christmas In Heaven claiming it´s Lauren A. singing background with Scotty. Getting ridicilous

    5. omg, I hope u corrected it, but I guess if they choose to slot her as unseen background singer with no credits, it's pretty sad. But u know somebody has been hustling her ever since AI, if not before that.

    6. Luckily I saw the lie was corrected by someone

      Who is the girl singing in the background of this song? Does anyone know? DeansLady88

  27. I thought HH handled himself just fine. I kinda would like to have seem BG win. He's been singing a while too and seems like a nice man. Not someone's music I'd buy nor HH either. Only Scotty I'd buy anything.

  28. I think he looked a little ill at ease, too. Must have been hard not to be nominated when he has had the kind of year he had. The audience showed how they felt about him. Next year. With new mamnagement hopefully he'll get that smash hit everyone says he needs.

  29. As Toby Keith put it he wouldn't even attend the CMAS because its political and fixed he thinks fan voted awards are the only ones that count as you can see Brad or Carrie didn't win they are the performers so I'm not upset Scotty didn't win this stupid award Toby wasn't even there and he win best video . Let's vote peoples choice awards .I've been voting Like crazy.

  30. Please vote for Shawn Johnson on Dancing with the Stars. If they do a Christmas show, she will definitely vote for Scotty to sing on the show. I think it would be great for Scotty to be a contestant on the show. He said he would like to learn to dance and I would love to see him do it. He is FANTASTIC!!!
    Shawn Johnson has always been one of my favorite gymnasts, not only for her incredible talent, but who she is as a person. I have and will always cheer for her. She and her family have always been fantastic. I have followed her since spotting her many years ago and was so excited to see this interview with her playing Scotty's music before the Olympics. She is so talented and is phenominal on DWTS. Love, Love, Love Scotty and Shawn!!

  31. Whatever happens, I'm sure Scotty will be just fine - and will be especially fine WITHOUT CMA and all the political hogwash. Real talent and integrity WINS. Scotty will always WIN. He IS who he IS.

  32. Just gotta say this and realize please, it is just my opinion. I liked Scotty's hair so much better short, like when he auditioned. I know I'll lose this battle and he shd wear how he feels most comfortable regardless. When I was in HS, long hair thing came in vogue, but I typically dated the clean cut boy next door types (with few exceptions which my Grandfather wanted to bust my behind for) So point is I guess I'm just stuck with perception of my generation. I realize he's growing up, but still think the really short hair or no longer than the CAD album photo show off his eyes and fresh face look so much better. But he did look really good otherwise. See that he's looking more muscular as someone mentioned and loved the gray suit.

    Replies
    1. Yep! In my opinion, you loose the battle, I love the look of guys that have curls in their hair and show it off. Scotty's hair is short and love that it has some style with a few curls showing! IMO it just adds to his already handsome look!

      Delete
    2. Yep ya lost lol

      Delete
    3. I love his hair curly and longer

      Delete
    4. Well as said, wasn't holding out for lot of support on this and ...nothing against guys with few curls, but don't see curls much on Scotty, just kinda frizzie or appears to be like he's always trying to keep it straight, but humidity causes frizz, or so I thought. Maybe, it's that Pueto rican blood. But Ashley's hair is beautiful, maybe I'm just not seeing the curls in Scotty's hair. Regardless, I just miss the attention to his face and I'm always focused on piece of hair sticking up or out that seems to detract from his otherwise good looking face. Oh well, guess I'll just have to shdc on this one with pun intended.

      Delete
    5. I think 99% of Scotty's fans like the longer hair a lot better. I think he looks more like a little kid with shorter hair, especially the buzz cut, and more manly and handsome with the longer hair and some facial stubble, too! Who cares if a couple of curls are sticking out a little! God picked out that hair for him, so rock it, Scotty!!

      Delete
    6. Most important thing to me is that Scotty decides for himself how he's most comforable wearing the hair God gave him.

      Delete
    7. I agree 10:42am, I'm one of your 99%. He could even show off a few curls around the nape of his neck, and it would look cool!

    2. Shawn said in an interview at the Olympics that she loves county music and especially Scotty. I saw this after the Olympics and then I saw the Missy Franklin interview and was very excited to hear she loves Scotty, too. I was so excited, I commented on this site at the time. They are two of the female athletes that I have followed when I heard about them. They are incredible role models like Scotty. We have a lot of great young talented kids and I love when the light shines on them. They really bring hope that the future for my son will be positive. TL

  36. 2:36 I believe that all the singers menbtioned have their good side. When I said I don't like certain ones, it's their songs and the message sent when there is so much focus on drinking , cigarettes and guns etc.I think they all have a responsibilty to their public. and to young people. The colleges in this country have huge problems with drinking, binge drinking that often lead to deaths.And the drunk driving that kills people. You can see how drunk people are in some of these concerts. There can be fun partying w/o getting drunk. I'm not against a drink occasionally but I do believer there is too much emphasis in music. Booty shaking and badonkadonk I find degrading to women.There are a lot of great songs w/o that kind of stuff.I prefer the BP, KU's, not that they don't mention alcohol, but they aren't promoting it. Huge respect for KU who got clean and sober and got his life in order. I am not saying these other guys aren't doing good things,are civic minded, have good marriages and are good parents.I think by far country singers are more moral and charitable.But we are seeing the effects of wrecklessness portrayed in music, t.v and movies in this country. We all need to instruct our kids in what is right or wrong but they are influenced by what they take into their minds. Unfortunately, there aren't many families like the McCreery's who know how to parent. I wonder how these singers feel when they begin to see their own kids take on these traits and habits. Miranda is on now with Fastest Girl in Town...terrible song.She and Carries have those revenge songs too. Is that what we should be teaching young ladies? There is too much of that in the world today. I quit listening to country and most music until Scotty came along. I think he is on the right tract. Hope there are more like him down the road.

    1. I think that is why the Lord has fast-tracked Scotty into his career.
      Scotty is the epitome of an example for clean living and having the time of his life doing it without having to drink one drop of alcohol in the process, and he will most likely (I personally am 100% sure) continue this example even when he is of legal age. That is why he idolizes and respects Josh Turner and Brad Paisley so much. They do not drink at all even though some songs do mention wine, beer, etc., from time to time, and they are humble people who love God and aren't afraid to say so. I am also pretty sure Scotty will be a good example for today's youth about lots of other things such as hard work, respect for others, and not ending up in compromising situations doing inappropriate things like other celebrities have done like Michael Phelps, Jason Aldean, etc. Scotty loves the Lord, and when you love someone the way you should you don't want to hurt them, disappoint them, or break their heart.

    2. It's me again G-ma D and I appreciate ur perspective. I know one thing that some kid needs to be taught a little lesson in morals and character. I'm so mad I could spit. Someone named Elizabeth @lizze_2904 tweeted Gabi and said the following "Ur Scotty's bestfriend, right? don't you think that Lauren and him look adorable together?" She then attached a pic of Lauren with her head resting on Scotty's shoulder at time of finale rounds. I am so disgusted by this blantant act of cruelty>>>>the pic attached would be devastatingy hurtful to any one dating Scotty. This proves the character of some of LA fans and this plus her horribly self centered behavior while co-hosting CMA red carpet for deep country is last straw for me. I have asked others not to call LA names and get ugly on here, and still don't think we shd but this awful act of spitefulness breaks my heart for Gabi and Scotty and this little twit had nerve to say "so what, I can tweet what I want, don't like it too bad...bla bla bla, when someone had kindness to stick up for Gabi. I sighed up for twitter when Scotty was on AI, but I screwed it up all the time and gave up. Will someone please tell me how to get back onto my twitter act, so I can send Gabi some love and support. Anyone who feels same please tweet her with some kindness,love and support. As far as I can tell Scotty is dating her and cares for her, but regardless what a hurtful thing to attempt to do to her. I'd like a few words with this brat as well.

      Delete
    3. I agree. I am pretty sure Scotty and Gabi know that it was just a cheap shot by a little "brat" girl who is jealous, I sure hope so anyway. We need to continue to pray for Scotty and his friends with their new life in the public eye and with all the social media and networking these days. God bless the people of Garner and Raleigh, NC, for not sticking their nose in every little thing these young people do. Thankfully, this ugly tweet incident is the exception and not the rule. That is just another form of "bullying".

      Delete
  37. Well, elizibeth or lizzie whoever took tweet down after some taking some heat. And I got some support tweeted to Gabi. Bless her heart. I hope this is exception and not the rule, but I'm afraid she may get more as we don't see all tweets she receives I don't think. But think we can imagine what we deal with here is good prediction of what she contends with as well. But hope with Scotty's family and her family support, plus all their friends she is able to keep things in perspective and not be hurt by the insanity.
