Scotty Mccreery - Scotty Mccreery Heading To College In The Fall: Which One?

Scotty Mccreery landed the Best New Artist award at last weekend's Academy of Country Music Awards. With this award and the accolade of winning American Idol under his belt, you may be surprised that Scotty is planning to go to college, as many of his peers will be doing, later this year.
In an interview with People magazine, he revealed that he has been accepted into four colleges and is deciding which one to go for. The likely candidate looks like North Carolina. "We're gonna figure it out and decide as a family," Scotty explained. "I grew up rooting for NC State, and that's where my dad went." It looks as though Nashville is another potential option for the music-mad teenager, though: "there are schools in Nashville that have been really great - and that's Music City so we'll see."
Scotty told People that he wouldn't be looking to study music formally though - he already has access to some of the greatest musicians in America so would rather choose something else to get to grips with at college. "Music I'm learning every day now . from Brad Paisley on the road and different things. I think marketing would be a cool way of learning how to stay out there and stay current. And study other things!" Fans of the young country music star needn't fret, though. He won't be giving up the career and intends to head out on the road on weekends, fitting his classes around his studying, where he can.
