For the last year (yes, this video was a year in the making), our friend Broadway has been asking everyone he interviews what turned out to be a surprisingly tough question ... is country music ready for an openly gay country star and whether the genre is homophobic in general? Some of the answers he got may surprise you.

While Scotty was visiting the Fox News studio he bumped into a familar childhood face...Uncle Joey! Not sure if Scotty is even old enough to know how neat that is, but he did say this: Got to meet this cool dude this morning on the set at Fox News. Dave Coulier from Full House! #UncleJoey So that's good!
Scotty was one of the victims of an armed robbery that happened in Raleigh, North Carolina but "luckily, my friends and I are safe," McCreery said on Facebook According to the Raleigh Police Department, the home invasion took place before 2 a.m. near North Carolina State University's campus. Three armed suspects entered the property and took money, wallets and electronics from multiple victims before leaving, police said. None of the victims was injured. "It was definitely a very scary night," the 20-year-old shared. "Luckily, my friends and I are safe and the Raleigh PD is on the case. I will...
This isn't exactly new, but I couldn't find any interviews or clips where Scotty McCreery spoke about this, so I asked him. Back in the day, Scotty sang the national anthem before game 1 of the 2011 World Series. If you skip ahead to the 2:56 mark, you'll hear what got peoples panties in a bunch. Did he say "no Jose" or "oh say?" Here's my interview where we discuss the anthem, who would be on his country music Mount Rushmore, among other things. You can also listen here if the video below doesn't work.
SeaWorld Scotty McCreery is set to perform at SeaWorld this weekend for their Bands, Brew, and BBQ event. Despite many other acts such as Trace Adkins and Willie Nelson pulling out due to the Blackfish controversy, Scotty says he's done his research and can't wait to see fans when he performs on Saturday. Check out his response about performing below (or here if that doesn't work). On a side note, Justin Moore performed last weekend and seems to have flew under the radar. What do you guys think? Is it old news now or should people still be unhappy with...
Facebook On Monday, it was revealed that Scotty McCreery had joined the 12.14 Foundation as their Goodwill Ambassador. The 12.14 Foundation uses arts as a healing mechanism in the wake of the horrific shooting tragedy which occurred in Newtown, CT on December 14, 2012.

McCreery, who visited with families and school children in Newtown on December 12, 2013, just...
Over the last month or so, SeaWorld has become the pariah of concert venues. Trisha Yearwood is the just the latest singer to have pulled out of a performance at the park after fans' protests related to SeaWorld's continued possession of orcas. Despite Trisha and Willie Nelson both backing out of the park's annual Bands, Brew and BBQ event, there are still more country artists signed up to perform in 2014 including Scotty McCreery, Justin Moore, and Martina McBride, although CNN is reporting that SeaWorld has pulled the event's official lineup off its website. "We expect that other artists will...
