Scotty McCreery: American Idol Recap

Moving On to the Top 12!

We were on the edge of our seats last night for the American Idol results show cheering Scotty on and…. He did it! Our boy secured a place in the top 12 and is moving on in the competition. After 30 million fans cast their votes, it was clear that everyone loves his baritone voice as much as we do. It looks like Scotty won’t be headed back to North Carolina anytime soon!

He sang an amazing rendition of Garth Brooks’ ‘The River,’ and the judges were singing his praises. “Dude, this is exactly where you belong,” said judge Randy Jackson, “You could put that out as a record now. I love it. Don’t change it!” Steven Tyler added, “Scotty, you did the Garth justice.”


Check out what country star Josh Turner said this week about Scotty’s idol run. We are so glad to see that Scotty’s down-home, boy-next-door charm is winning America’s hearts like it does ours.  We can’t wait to see what he pulls out of his cowboy hat next week- keep up the great support! Learn a bit about Scotty’s background and see more of his performances here.

Don’t forget to tune in on Wednesday and Thursday this week, 8/7c, and to vote for Scotty!
