Rather than going with the typical “American Idol” notes for Thursday night, we instead are going to focus on a story that really is remarkable in many ways — Scotty McCreery going from CMT Music Award winner to high school graduate in less than 24 hours.
The season 10 winner first announced the news in a post on Twitter, where he shared the following message looking back on his time at Garner High School:
“I’ve enjoyed these last 4 years.. wouldnt trade any of them for the world.
During his time at Garner, Scotty was a member of the baseball team, and even managed to balance attending classes with being an over night country music superstar. In addition to being a CMT Music Award winner, he also has a score of other new artist honors to go along with having a Certified Platinum debut album in “Clear As Day.”
You can check out a video below (via MyCarolina Today) that focuses on Scotty walking across the stage and getting his diploma. (Cue the collective “aws” from the crowd.)
Are you glad to see that Scotty managed to actually attend his normal high school
