I haven't watched American Idol for ages, last time was when Carrie Underwood was on it, I tipped her to win then (wished I'd put a bet on). I would have done the same with Scotty McCreery had I heard him, his voice is just incredible. I came to know of him through his cameo in 'Hart of Dixie' singing 'The Trouble With Girls' and I thought he must be miming to a well known but older country singer, his voice seemed too rich, too mellow and deep for such a young man, boy was I wrong and I'm glad I was, Scotty McCreery is a real find, he's got this amazing voice and to me, he looks a little like the late, great Jim Reeves (in certain photographs).
All power to him, good luck to him, he will be around for a long time, and I'm glad of that. Love hearing new country music, wish I'd taken it up when I was younger but there we are - all the best Scotty, a real star in the making.
