    WOW!! Bunch of whiners here today. Want some cheese to go with it??

    Scotty is a nice young man, with a nice family and a great future ahead of him. He is young, but at least he appears to have his head on right. I suspect some folks are just jealous!

    "Mike, if you would listen, everyone who sings in the Macy's parade lip syncs..." LoveSomeGolo

    Not everyone, lip syncing means you move your mouth to the music playing. Scott not only did not do that, he didn't even hold the microphone to his mouth!

    They're not charging you to listen.

    I tried to get tickets just for the resale value of them! Could have paid a bill or two with the extra cash!!

    Okay so he just now has become a famous singer in the past 6 months...Maybe one day he will write his own music. Everyone Lip syncs in the Macys parade. That's just how they have to do it....stop discrediting somebody that obvious has a lot of talent and gives his credit to God and is an all around good guy!! What has he done to you Mike?

    George Strait doesn't write songs either and it certainly hasn't hurt his career. Some people write songs, some people sing them, and some do both. And some can't do either. So what?

    Not everyone likes Scotty. It doesn't mean they're jealous.

    that's sad... hey maybe he should just do a performance at the local high schools, and all the money raised can go to the charity of choice by the school.

    Mike, everyone who sings in the Macy's Parade lip syncs. Scotty was not the only one to be off que in the parade. Avril Lavigne did not start when her music started either.

    i thought the $25 was way to steep for a state fair concert.. and why can't they wait till next year to sell the tickets like everyone else. i guess the state wants the money early to settle the medicaid shortfall.

    sorry scottie got mixed up in this one.
