    1. W e do want to see Scotty perform ,it’s about time he got to sing a whole song at one of these award shows ,he’s got such a fantastic voice

    2. Scotty has a new album out that should get some time on the award shows. “Carolina Moon” with Alison Krauss would be the highlight of the night. He deserves the time and country fans deserve something than the same O, same O.

    3. Scotty has a new album out that should get some time on the award shows. “Carolina Moon” with Alison Krauss would be the highlight of the night. He deserves the exposure and country fans deserve something other than the same artist every award show.

  1. ya’ can get rid of them all….Let Scotty do the whole show….lol,,no,,,just praying he performs

    1. So agree!! When we the rest of them realize what they are missing in Scotty? That includes country radio….

  4. scotty really needs to perform at the ACA’s he is an amazing performer. It would be
    an amazing treat to see him perform.

  5. Would love to see Scotty McCreery perform he has a wonderful voice. Would also love for him to get to sing a song completely through without being cut short.

  6. Scotty Mccreery is so deserving of the Breakthrough Artist. He should definitely be performing. Why do the same ones have to do the performing all the time. I do believe that there is a little click in Nashville. If Scotty doesn’t perform, there are going o be a lot of unhappy peoples!!!!!!

  7. You all need to realize how many fans LOVE SCOTTY MCCREERY. When he doesn’t perform most of us don’t watch the show. He NEEDS to perform and perform a complete song. Thank you.

    1. Nancy Totally agree, Scotty brought me back to Country Music and If he does not perform I will not watch. This return to Country Music for me has been a real eye opener. The same performers keep singing the same old songs on every award show. For Country Music to expand they need to be more open to new young talent.

  8. Scotty McCreery definitely should be performing! He has some great new songs that deserve to be heard.

  9. Hopefully MCCREERIANS outvoted others for Scotty McCreery to win Breakthrough Artist,an award he so deserves! He should be performing with his band, as well as presenting. His music and sold-out Tour Shows are fantastic .

  29. Take your pick of Scotty McCreery’s new songs from “See You Tonight” album and have him perform it, after he wins his award. The fans need it! He deserves it, we’ve waited far too long.

  33. Scotty McCreery is fantastic and should be included as a performer on the ACA Awards show. He is the most talented young man in the business. He has an outstanding voice and stage presence. My husband and I love this young man and have been to several of his concerts and plan on attending more in the future. His new album “See You Tonight” is outstanding. We cannot stop listening to it. Every song is a masterpiece. Please add Scotty to the list of performers. Thank you.

  36. I would love to see Scotty McCreery perform his current single, “See You Tonight.” He is an awesome performer with the BEST voice in the business, and he is SO gorgeous!!! He is a platinum/gold-selling singer/songwriter with thousands and thousands of fans who love and support him. His new album debuted at #1 Country in October; his 2013 headlining tour, Weekend Roadtrip Tour, was constantly packed/soldout! He won ACA Best New Artist 2011–He deserves to perform on this show!!!
    (I am so tired of seeing only the same people perform on every awards show! I don’t even watch anymore!)

  41. I echo the others on this thread. Scotty McCreery adds to any show. He has a fantastic voice and stage presence and range of fans that go from toddler to walker, and plenty of teen plus thrown in. The ACA’s would do well to include him as a performer.
