Scotty McCreery, the undeniably likeable country crooner who took the crown during Season 10 of 'American Idol,' was back on the show for tonight's (April 11) results episode. He performed the new song 'See You Tonight' with the panache of a seasoned vet, since that's what he is, even at 19! He can't drink legally, but boy, can he command a crowd's attention with his performance skill.
Being a bona fide country music star isn't going to interrupt Scotty McCreery's plans to continue his schooling. The 18-year-old 'American Idol' champion and Academy of Country Music's Best New Artist winner will be furthering his education at North Carolina State University, starting this fall.
Congratulations to Scotty McCreery! The 'American Idol' Season 10 champ and country crooner has been nominated for a 2012 ACM Award, aka an American Country Music Award. McCreery has been nominated in the Best New Artist category, which is a considerable feat for someone who just turned 18!
There's no better way to get viewers psyched for the 11th season of 'American Idol' than by reminding them of the mega successful and meteoric rise of Season 10 winner Scotty McCreery. In a new promo spot for the upcoming season, which kicks off in January, FOX highlights McCreery's massive, post-show success by walking down memory lane.
