I expect someone will pick him up.

The fact that he had strong sales, but didn't do too well on radio is a suggestion that Mercury wasn't doing it's best to promote him.

He also fits right in with the culture of country music.

OT Question. Fellow Haley fans... as someone that has missed two concerts this year of personal fave singers (Haley, Kris Allen), would it be strange to see a Scotty show knowing full well that I'm not a hardcore fan of his? It's the Idol fan in me that's curious. Tongue Anyway. His tickets aren't cheap, but the show is very local. I hear he's a good performer, and he impressed me on the Idol tour 5 years ago. So... Yay or Nay? Smile

I've left all that Idol stuff behind, I liked the contestants of that season, including Scotty, never said he wasn't talented. Like Haley, I appreciate the entire 'journey' put it in it's proper perspective...if you like his music, why not go?

Idol's been over 5 years ago, they're all on their own merits, 5 Years on, I'm grateful Haley's 'down' time was used productively so she can reap the rewards, I went to see James recently, he was a very nice guy, very personable. Idol is not a good reason to not see and support him Tongue

Oh, I hear ya. I think Scotty's very talented too, and as much as I wanted Haley to win Idol I'm not bugged by her finishing third anymore. I'm an Idol nerd so yeah. I don't take it as a jab if someone calls a personal fave singer of mine an Idol. I do it myself. I don't mean anything negative about that by the way.

I do think that the stigma from the show can be annoying if you're trying to see them as their own artist. Idol started the journey for many talented singers, but it isn't the whole journey. Or the proper bio as one might say. Since there's pre-Idol, during Idol, and post-Idol for those who were on it and made it big in some form. At least that's the way I see it. Wink lol

I like a few of Scotty's songs, but I'm by no means a country music fan. Idol fan yes. Scotty as a person fan yes. Country music fan? NOPE. I'm curious as one who watched him grow on Idol and as one who has seen him perform once before. Does it matter if I'm more of a casual observer and not a hardcore fan though? Because I know that someone might think that I'm... "Stealing a seat from real fans..." Ok maybe just one person might think that. Tongue

Anyway. I appreciate the journey too. And I think Scotty's had a helluva ride so far. Just from my observations. He even wrote a book. That's pretty awesome and I might check it out (along with Melinda Doolittle's and David Archuleta's. Not because they were on Idol, but because I like them. Also I'm curious what they have to say. Smile) sometime soon.

You have a point. I may just be overthinking this. lol I should just go and enjoy the concert. Big Grin

Definitely go! Country isn't my thing, but I've got a lot of respect for Scotty both as a person and as a talent. (Scotty came to Connecticut to help run musical therapy program for the Sandy Hook kids. Liked him before I saw him do that, loved him after.)

SCOTTY McCREERY’S “FIVE MORE MINUTES” IS CERTIFIED DOUBLE PLATINUM BY RIAA

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Scotty McCreery is kicking 2020 off with a bang! Just days before heading to Mexico for his first-ever appearance at Luke Bryan’s Crash My Playa, the country music hitmaker learned his signature hit, “Five More Minutes,” has been certified Double Platinum by the RIAA for sales of more than two million units. This is the singer/songwriter’s first Double Platinum certification.

“Five More Minutes” was McCreery’s first No.1 hit on both Mediabase/Country Aircheck Country Singles Chart and Billboard Country Airplay Chart. He wrote it with Frank Rogers (who also produced the song) and Monty Criswell, and it was the lead single from his No.1 album Seasons Change.

“I have believed in this song since the day I wrote it with Frank and Monty, and I am thrilled that the fans have believed in it as well,” said McCreery. “This song was inspired by the passing of my grandfather, and I feel him with me every time I sing it. As I’ve said many times, it is my favorite song I’ve ever written. Thanks to Triple 8 Management, Triple Tigers Records, and all my team for working so hard with me.”

McCreery debuted the song on the Grand Ole Opry during CMA Music Festival in June 2016. The live video of the performance on the Opry’s YouTube Channel reached millions of viewers and went on to earn the North Carolina native the Rare Country Award for Opry Moment of the Year in December 2016.

In 2017, “Five More Minutes” became the first country song in history to chart in the Top 50 of the Mediabase / Country Aircheck Country Singles chart without being released by a record label. McCreery signed with Triple Tigers Records soon after and the label expertly guided the song to No.1 in February 2018. That same year “Five More Minutes” earned McCreery a BMI Award for writing One of BMI’s Top 50 Country Songs of the Year and it was named One of the Top Ten Songs We Wish We’d Written by the professional membership of the Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI).

The acclaimed music video for “Five More Minutes,” directed by Jeff Ray, featured rare footage of McCreery growing up with family and friends. It went on to peak at No.1 on both the CMT Hot 20 Countdown and the GAC Top 20 Countdown, and to date has received almost 100 million views on YouTube.
