Super Pumped for Garner’s Own Scotty McCreery on American Idol
Anyone who knows me knows that I am a HUGE American Idol fan. I’ve been watching since the very first show of the very first season. I love the entire show – from opening auditions to the Finale. If my DVR could only record one show each week, that would be it. Of course, anyone who knows me also knows that I love to sing too. That’s probably why this particular show gets me every time.
But, this year, it’s taken on a whole new meaning as the small town just outside of Raleigh, North Carolina that I call home – Garner – has one of its own in the Top 13, Scotty McCreery, the very same guy that just a few short weeks ago rang up our groceries for us at our local Lowe’s Foods store and the very same guy that won a similar competition, Clayton Idol (in Clayton, North Carolina), back in 2009.
Scotty is a country boy with a heart for the Lord and a true gift of song from God. He gets on stage and it all comes naturally to him. I saw it in 2009 and it hasn’t changed. He hasn’t changed.
And he’s a GOOD kid too! Howmany teens can you say play baseball for their local high school team, support charitable causes whenever they get the chance, and perform in front of thousands – or in this case, millions? Not many.
I support Scotty with every vote I can give him…and I mean that literally. Last week, I voted 50 plus times! In all the years of watching, I’ve never done that.
I have to admit, though, this year’s talent pool is tremendous. I just pray that Scotty continues to do as well as he has. No matter what, I have a feeling this kid is going places. He’s too talented and too gracious not to.
Go Scotty, GO! You have my vote.
