Scotty McCreery Responds to 2012 Teen Choice Awards Nomination
Ever since Scotty McCreery snagged the crown on 'American Idol' last season, his country music career has been heating up. Now, the 'I Love You This Big' hitmaker is getting affirmation from his teenage fans. McCreery has received a double nomination from the 2012 Teen Choice Awards.
It's hard to believe that just a year ago, the North Carolina native was gearing up to face off against fellow country crooner Lauren Alaina for the 'American Idol' season finale. In the year since McCreery's victory, he's managed to tour with Brad Paisley, sing a few chart-topping songs. Now he's up for the Choice Male Reality Star and Choice Male Country Star Teen Choice Awards.
"I am so grateful for all of my teen fans," McCreery said in a statement. "Since I'm still a teenager myself, their support has meant everything to me over the last year."
A handful of other country stars, including Jason Aldean, Taylor Swift, Lady Antebellum and more have received Teen Choice Award nods, too. Click here for a full list of country stars who could take the stage when the awards show airs.
