Charlotte Observer ..FOR SCOTTY 



Every year, the advisory board considers a list that currently stands at 400 people, then narrows it down from about 50 to the final 10. Those go to the board of directors to make the final decision. One of this year’s inductees for whom North Carolina looms large in songs like “Carolina Moon” and “Carolina to Me” is McCreery. The American Idol alum and country star has landed five consecutive No. 1 hits as well as multiple gold and platinum albums and singles.


“It’s no secret. I love North Carolina,” McCreery said. “That’s why I still live there and not Nashville or anywhere else. And if you look at any of my records, North Carolina’s got its fingerprints all over it, whether it be an actual song about the state or even just a mindset.” McCreery said he was delighted to be in such good company at the hall, both with this year’s class of inductees and those who came before.






“I was on the back porch up in the mountains in Carolina when I got a call from my manager just letting me know (about the induction). I love music and I love writing songs and performing songs, but it’s always nice when people let you know that they appreciate your work.


“And then for me, I’m a fan of so many artists that are already in the hall, Ronnie Millsap and Charlie Daniels and Randy Travis, just to name a few are heroes of mine. So just to be mentioned in the same breath with them and the other honorees this year is massive for me,” McCreery said.


The Scotty McCreery exhibit at the NC Music Hall of Fame includes the jacket he wore after winning “American Idol.”

For artists to qualify for induction, there are two prerequisites,


Cordle said.


Candidates need to have a significant connection to North Carolina or have been born in the state. Second, they have to have at least 10 years of national popularity before they qualify.



The museum board continually receives nominations by phone, email and even by visitors to the museum.
