Scotty McCreery In Nashville
A lot of kids your age are getting ready for school, so what are your plans for this year? I’ll be doing school on the road, my mom is a certified teacher, and she won’t cut me any slack. She’ll be my tutor, but I’ll still be enrolled with my school back home. So I’ll turn in papers with them. Once the tour is done, I’ll head back, because it’s my senior year, I don’t want to miss out on any memories.
College plans? I’m hoping to go into college right out of high school like any normal kid, hopefully Belmont in Nashville so I can study music while I’m doing the career. I’m young, so I have a lot to learn.

Singing the praises of Bob Dylan
With all that mind, we’ve asked some musicians with local ties to weigh in on Dylan, given that his artistic shadow is cast so far and so deep that you generally can’t come of age as a songwriter post-1961 and not be heavily influenced by his work.
Crystal Bowersox – Singer/songwriter from Elliston, Ohio, who was the 2010 American Idol runner-up:
“When I think of Dylan, I think of poetry, activism, and folk with a function. Saying his name alone is enough to conjure up the memories of a not-so-distant time, when apathy didn’t seem to peek its lazy head into the hearts of our youth. Dylan was not necessarily ahead of his time; he was in the perfect place and time to inspire an entire generation, and many generations to come.”
