    Scotty headlined for a concert at his own college, North Carolina State University, Packapalooza (mascot is Wolfpack) last week. It was FREE concert and a fun filled day of events!

    I saw that on the local news. I'm so proud of this guy. His latest single did really well this summer. I wish great things for this young man. I would love to set him up with my niece who's about his age.

    I actually pulled this from an article/interview that Scotty had posted to his fb page in which he was mentioned. I thought it was interesting because it spoke to who he was and how he handled the pressure even at 17. I'm including the link but have pulled the parts that pertained to Scotty.

    Don Was On Judging Guitar Center's Singer-Songwriter Contest | American Songwriter



    Youíve also worked with undiscovered talent on American Idol, which is a nice parallel to this contest. Do you have any examples of how you mentored a contestant?

    Iíve got a great story. I was brought in to work with Scotty McCreery. He was only 17 at the time, but he knew what we wanted. He wasnít going to sing to tracks, he needed a band. We were in the room with the producers, Jimmy Iovine and others, and we were choosing songs. The producers would suggest songs and the singers could also say what they wanted to sing. It was all done (song selection, recording, mixing) in the span of a weekend so you had to know what you wanted. It was fun but if you labored over it too long you were going to have a problem. One particular week Scotty wanted to do a Travis Tritt song that not many people knew. Everyone was telling him ďyou canít do that, no one is going to know it.Ē Now, I produced Travis Tritt so I knew it! And so Scotty, all seventeen years old, stands up and says: ďNo, the people who like me will know this song. And the people who donít like me arenít gonna like me no matter what I sing!Ē He stood his ground, because he knew what was right for him. And he knew who his audience was. He didnít play to the lowest common denominator. He stayed true to himself and was victorious. That was a great moment.

    Thatís pretty wise and bold for a seventeen year old to stand up to Hollywood!

    He was so cool under pressure. I was like ďwhatís with this kid?Ē And then I found out he was a pitcher in his high school baseball league. Then it all made sense. He was able to shut out all the noise and stay focused and maintain grace under pressure.

    Wow, that is special. I hope the organization gets more donations because of his birthday request.

    Here is a behind the scenes look at filming the Feelin' It video.
