I am so THRILLED he's nominated for 2 awards. I don't care if he wins. I doubt he will and it's ok.
To even be recognized proves to me he's being taken seriously by the industry.
If we can just get through this PD radio hurdle, we'll be flying high.

I agree 100%. This is one of those awards that just geeting the nomination is important.

His nominations have just solidified my desire to go! haha.gif

I went to the ACM Awards in Vegas back in 2007. That was an awesome experience. Going to a Vegas award show is something you must experience if you can! Its just crazy! And with all genre stars being there, not just Country, that will be one heck of a party!

Scotty McCreery has been nominated for two awards – the all-genre Top New Artist and Top Country Album for Clear As Day – at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards, which will be held May 20 in Las Vegas.

Other artists in the Top New Artist category are Bad Meets Evil, Big Sean, Foster the People and Wiz Khalifa.

He joins Jason Aldean, The Band Perry, Luke Bryan and Lady Antebellum in the Top Country Album category.

Las Vegas is turning out to be a lucky city for Scotty, who won the Academy of Country Music’s New Artist of the Year Award there on April 1. He also won New Artist of the Year at the American Country Awards in December in Las Vegas.

“This is amazing!” he says. “It’s exciting that my name is listed with these other talented artists. I am honored that Billboard would recognize me for my debut country album.

“I’m also excited about the Top New Artist nomination because it recognizes artists from all genres of music. I’ve been overwhelmed by everything that has happened to me in the last year and I’m grateful to the fans who made all of this possible.”

Since winning Season Ten of American Idol in May, he has quickly emerged as one of the most successful country stars of the last year. His debut album, Clear As Day, was certified platinum for sales of more than 1 million units in just three months, and he was named No. 1 on Billboard magazine’s list of Top New Country Artists for 2011.

I'm thinking Jason Aldean's got it on the country album and Wiz's got it on the new artist.
I believe they're more interested in sales than anything.

But Scotty you go!! Fantastic nomination!!

Of course the nomination is by itself a great honor, but I'm on the side of those who think that Scotty has a chance to win top new artist.

I'm been feeding my Google addiction original.gif and learned a few things:

As of mid-February Wiz Khalifa had sold approximately 780,000 albums. I couldn't find recent numbers of the other three nominees but what I did find leaves me to believe that Scotty is #1 in album sales and Wiz Khalifa is #2.

Wiz Kallifa's biggest hit (Black and Yellow) has over 3 million track sales and 124 million Youtube views but it was released in mid 2010 so it's hard to know what portion of those occurred before of the qualification period of March 11, 2011 - February 29, 2012. He definitely seems to be the leader in YouTube views.

So I guess we just sit back, enjoy the nomination, and let Billboard figure it out. original.gif

I agree that Scotty has a chance. If you're talking about sales, I remember that Scotty became the youngest male to have CAD debute #1 in ALL genre. That should count for something I would think!!!!

Regardless, really proud and happy for him to get this recognition.
