This Week’s Best Tweets: Scotty McCreery

This Week’s Best Tweets: Country Stars Start Celebrating Memorial Day Early By: Billy Dukes

Rodriguez, Getty Images As a holiday weekend approaches, it’s clear that a few country stars may have begun celebrating a little early. Joe Nichols has something to celebrate, while a few others — like Jerrod Niemann and Tyler Farr — may just be celebrating life. Of course Blake Shelton is included in this list of the week’s best tweets, but his submission is much more domestic than fans are used to — but still hilarious. Each week we assemble the best Twitter postings from country music’s biggest stars. Shelton and Miranda Lambert are regularly featured, but a few others — like Carrie Underwood and Scotty McCreery — only make the occasional debut. Judging by what some country stars say on Twitter, that may be a good thing.

 @ScottyMcCreery Hey @BradPaisley, were over here by the river fishing.. could you quiet down your soundcheck? Youre scaring the fish away...

A year ago today...

A year ago today, the confetti fell inside of Nokia Theatre and Scotty McCreery was crowned American Idol's season 10 winner. 

A lot has happened since that night. It has been a crazy and wild ride following his journey but it has definitely been a thrilling one!

We here at Fans of Scotty have created this video to help you remember and celebrate the journey so far. Because no review of Scotty's journey is complete without his American Idol story, we have started the video taking place in January when he first auditioned. 

We hope you enjoy the memories and happy winning anniversary to every fan of Scotty out there!

Scotty McCreery to Phillip Phillips: ‘Go Out There Looking to Learn

Scotty McCreery won Season 10 of ‘American Idol’ and became a legit country superstar in the ensuing year, so of course he has plenty of advice to offer to and to instill in the winner of Season 11, Phillip Phillips. McCreery offered his heir apparent a few choice words of advice: “Go out there looking to learn.”

During a chat with Access Hollywood earlier this week before the finale, McCreery offered that sentiment to Phillips and his competition, Jessica Sanchez, who obviously placed second lat night’s (May 23) finale.

McCreery also said, “Don’t go out of the gates and just try to do as much as you can and conquer the world your first year out. You wanna go out there and learn.”

He even pointed out that he put his money where his mouth is and he isn’t just doling out mindless advice. He said, “I got the opportunity and the blessing to go on tour with Brad Paisley and the Band Perry right now and I’m out there every night just trying to learn from them. Those guys are at the top. They’ve worked hard to get where they’re at.”

“I think if you go out of this with a learning attitude, you’ll take a lot away from it,” he added. Following the show, McCreery shared with his Twitter followers that he was happy to see Phillips win it all. “Passed the torch on to a well deserving artist, @PPhillipsAI11.. take it all in and enjoy it man!” he said.

“Tonight your life has changed forever!” He’s right, and that’s great advice, especially from someone who is living the dream. You hear that Phillip Phillips? The baton has been passed. Congrats from Taste of Country, by the way!
