    Glad Scotty is from Garner, but he is overated, and Garner and young Girls voted him in, not talent, and to see that his tickets are 25$, come on, much better talent at the Fair this year.

    Glad to see Scotty getting 2 nights at the fair,have tixs for the 1st night,just might get them for 2nd show too..

    WHY all the hate for Scotty?? He has worked hard getting where he is today and he deserves all the good things that has come his way thus far & I hope this is just the beginning. WTG Scotty!!!!!

    Save your money, go see Jason Michael Carroll. He puts on an excellent show. Seems WRAL are Scotty fans. My comment from yesterday was removed and all I said was who is trying to profit from "Scotty Fever".

    Corey Smith at the State Fair...that's pretty cool. I will be there for that one and probably some of the others as well.

    who cares

    Not my cup of tea. So I will not be wasting my money on him.

  • busyb97 Jul 2, 2012

    Tickets cost more because they know he will draw a crowd and they will pay for it.

    That is fine. My kids will be excited to know we can see Michael W Smith finally local! He always goes to Greensboro. :)

    I love Scotty. Bought his CD the day it came out, voted for him on Idol, but can't believe his tickets cost more then Jason Michael Carroll, Michael W. Smith, Jake Owen and Billy Currington.
