Special Guest Sarah Darling.

American fell in love with Scotty in 2011 when he appeared on American Idol and immediately made a name for himself with his deep and undeniably country voice, strong sense of self, small-town roots and unwavering integrity and conviction. He had no idea then that those first performances were paving the way for a meteoric rise in country music. He recently made his first entry into the Guinness World Records Book for being the youngest male to enter the U.S. album charts at No. 1. In 2011, his debut album, Clear As Day, premiered atop the all-genre Billboard 200 albums chart and was certified platinum for sales of 1 million copies in just three months.

The album garnered the highest sales of any country solo album released last year and held the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart for six weeks. In September, he was ranked No. 4 on Billboard's list of "21 Under 21: Music's Hottest Minors 2012," which was his second consecutive year to be ranked No. 4 on that prestigious list. Recently, he was among only five musical artists to be included in Variety's Youth Impact Report 2012 that detailed those under age 21 who are driving forces in the entertainment industry.
