American Idol winner Scotty is currently deciding his college plans, but is said to be set to continue with his music career alongside his education and make the most of the opportunity afforded to him by his AI win.
In November, McCreery said he is looking forward to watching the new season of American Idol – which premieres on January 18 next year – because he will understand what the new contestants are going through.
At the American Music Awards Scotty performed his latest song, The Trouble With Girls, before thanking his fans for voting for him.
“Thank you all so much,” he said. “This is my first award. Thank all you guys, you got me through American Idol,” before a birthday shout-out to his mother.
Congratulations Scotty McCreery on your first music award, Best New artist at the American Country Awards. But I would like to think it wouldn’t be his last!
