I am smitten!
Yes folk, ME- a middle aged woman is crooning over Scotty McCreery, a finalist on American Idol from Garner, North Carolina; twenty or so minutes from where I reside.
Although I’ve never tuned into American Idol except as a stepping stone to a different program, I have been swept up in the ‘Scotty Mania!’
Seriously, how can you not? His deep voice is smooth and comforting for his seventeen years and he’s such a down-home southern kid who is a pitcher on his baseball team, sings with his school’s performing choir as well as his church youth choir and is an honor student.
Seriously, what is there not to like? . . . Perhaps the fact that he’s a North Carolina State fan? Nah, that wouldn’t even deter me!
I’ve never been a country music enthusiast but when Scotty sings twang, I like it!! More than that, he’s cute with clean cut hair and an impish smile, he’s humble and thankful and he professes his Christian faith openly and allows the cross he wears around his neck to guide and direct his voyage through the popular show based in Los Angelos, California.
So Tuesday, when voting is open to the public, I will be like thousands of fanatical individuals casting their choice, and calling for Scotty; he’s in it to win it!
. . . There couldn’t be a more deserving candidate! Even if I am a middle aged woman!
