Scotty McCreery receives third country music nomination

GARNER -- It’s becoming a bit old hat for Scotty McCreery — another country music association announces award nominees, and the Garner High School student is a contender.
On Monday, CMT announced that Scotty’s music video for “The Trouble With Girls” has been nominated for “Breakthrough Video of the Year” at this year’s CMT Music Awards, to air on June 6 on the country music cable channel.
Fans can go online to vote for Scotty at www.cmt.com through June 4. Carrie Underwood – like Scotty, a former “American Idol” winner – leads the nominations with five.
Scotty’s fellow nominees in the breakthrough category have all competed against him before – Lauren Alaina, who has runner-up when Scotty won the 10th season of “Idol” a year ago; Brantley Gilbert and Hunter Hayes, both of whom were nominated against Scotty for Best New Artist at the Academy of Country Music Awards earlier this month; and Pistol Annies and Thompson Square, both of whom were nominated against Scotty for Top New Artist in December’s American Country Awards.
Scotty, an 18-year-old who will soon be graduating from Garner High, is 2-0 in previous nominations — winning at both the Academy of Country Music Awards and the American Country Awards.
“The Trouble With Girls” is a special video for Scotty and his classmates — it was shot at Garner High last fall, using students as extras. The teenage girl seen flirting with Scotty in a chemistry lab, Gabi Dugal, accompanied him to Garner High’s prom on Saturday night.
After graduation, Scotty is scheduled to go back on tour with country singer Brad Paisley. And in the fall, he plans to enroll as a freshman at N.C. State University.
