Although I’ve been a Pia fan since the beginning and country music isn’t really my thing, I’ve really admired Scotty for speaking openly about his faith in God. I like that he symbolizes that, show after show, with his cross necklace he always wears.
“I’ve got to thank the Lord first; he got me here,” McCreery said as he accepted the award from Ryan Seacrest. When I heard that, I was so happy I even shouted to my boyfriend, “Yes! He gives God the credit!”
Scotty used to practice singing at a Baptist Church in North Carolina. At only 17, he has a surprisingly deep, soulful voice! He said that he prayed and leaned on God each show to get him through to the next round of the competition.
I am so happy that an openly Christian artist is in the media! Go Scotty, we’re rooting for you!
Are you happy that he won?
