Miley Cyrus, Scotty McCreery make Billboard ‘Hottest Minors’ list

Billboard released its 21 under 21: Music’s Hottest Minors 2013 list this week and two artists with Music City ties made the list: Miley Cyrus is No. 3 and Scotty McCreery is No. 8.

 Cyrus, 20, has been in headlines constantly the last few weeks for reasons including nudity in her “Wrecking Ball” video, her controversial performance with Robin Thicke on MTV’s Video Music Awards and her break-up with fiancé actor Liam Hemsworth.

McCreery, 19, has also made the news, but in a different way — he recently donated $50,000 to youth sports programs, is sponsoring an underprivileged child overseas through World Vision and is encouraging his fans to do the same. In addition, McCreery released a new video for his current single “See You Tonight.” It contains no nudity or wrecking balls, but does feature trucks, soldiers and hand-holding.

Both Cyrus and McCreery are releasing new albums in the coming weeks. Cyrus’ “Bangerz” is due in stores Oct. 8 and McCreery’s “See You Tonight” will be released Oct. 15.
