Scotty wins ICM Mainstream Country Male Artist

What are the Inspirational Country Music Awards?:
In the fall of every year, The Inspirational Country Music Awards celebrate the year-long accomplishments of the industries brightest new talent, biggest stars and living legends. The Awards also serve as a yearly testament to the accumulative work and effort of The Inspirational Country Music Association.

Josh Turner, Charlie Daniels, Wynonna, Collin Raye, Ricky Skaggs, Andy Griggs, Lonestar, Lee Greenwood, Point of Grace, Diamond Rio, Emerson Drive, Love & Theft, Jeff Bates and Tracy Lawrence are just some of the artists that have graced the stage over the years.

Inspirational Country Music enjoys one of the most loyal fan-bases in the music industry. That quality makes it extremely accepting and welcoming to new artists. While not as large an industry as Mainstream Country, the unique Inspirational Country fan loyalty allows artists the opportunity to grow careers as well as ministries.

How does voting work?:
The annual Inspirational Country Music Awards are voted on by the professional and media members of the Inspirational Country Music Association. This includes: musicians, songwriters, artists, ministers, managers, publicity agents and firms, producers, etc. (anyone who derives their living from music and is actively involved in music or ministry). Radio and other media professionals are also part of the voting process. Our radio members are not paid subscribers. The membership is a benefit for their support and hard work in the genre of Christian and Inspirational Country Music. These professional and media members are eligible to vote in all rounds and all categories of the awards process.
The second level is our Fan Membership. These include fans from around the globe that appreciate Christian and Inspirational Country Music. They are not eligible to vote in the first round. The first round is ONLY for professional and media members. This process ensures that only industry professionals define the most eligible nominees. Fans are eligible to vote in rounds two and three of the process. Fans are only allowed to vote in FIVE categories of their choice. They may choose any five categories to vote in. Once the ballot reaches the accounting firm, any fan ballot with more than five votes is voided.

  1. Blessings are coming your way, our dear Scotty. You deserve them. Your fans are the most loyal in the land. Count me in. Congratulations for this award. Wow !!!!

    I wonder what is in store for Scotty next year...IMO, he needs to tour with a senior artist like Garth or George or whoever is going to tour next year. He needs exposure outside of his wide fan base. This will help with album sales. Remember we want to make it platinum or even gold by December. I am so thrilled that he is getting good reviews as a singer and his album as well. But at the same time I am so stressed about his album sales. I wish that the attendance in his concerts can be translated to album sales. Wishful thinking. He deserves to reach gold or platinum.

    1. I would like to see him tour with Garth for several reasons, Garth always draws a huge crowd and he is a marketing genius. It would be yet another fantastic learning experience for Scotty.

    2. Ps: If he toured with Garth, then my daughter would not have to do Scotty duty as she calls it. I will be doing Garth duty for her.

  3. Just hold firm in our belief that God works in Scotty's life. God is carrying him now. He has taken the wheel and moving Scotty where He wants him to be. I, 1000% believe that. He will win awards 2014. Maybe even new male vocalist and album. By then, maybe even song. Heck maybe take it all. Clean Sweep. If your going to dream, then dream large.LOL!!

  6. I love your idea Kentucky Girl. Our Walmart isn't stocking Scotty's Deluxe edition. But what I did was ordered two See You Tonight CD's and you have the option of picking them up at the Walmart store you specify. I ordered the two copies yesterday and they were ready for pickup today. Yet when I went and picked them up I checked to see how the shelves were stocked and still no Scotty! Go figure.
