Scotty McCreery graduates

It’s been a crazy few days for platinum-selling artist and American Idol winner Scotty McCreery, who took home his first CMT Music Award on Wednesday and then graduated high school 12 hours later in Garner, N.C. After all that excitement, he headed back to Nashville yesterday to sign autographs, hold a Fan Club Party and take the stage at LP Field on Sunday.

At the CMT Music Awards on Wednesday, Scotty grabbed the USA Weekend Breakthrough Video of the Year for “The Trouble With Girls” at the 2012 CMT Music Awards. “I was pumped!” says Scotty, who also performed “Water Tower Town” during the CMT Music Awards. “It’s a fun awards show. You come here just looking for a great time, so that award just added to a great night.”

The award he won was for “The Trouble With Girls” video, which was actually shot at Garner High School, the school from which McCreery graduated on Thursday morning. “I love the video because it’s real for me,” he says. “Those are my real friends and my real high school. It was really special to shoot.” He graduated with distinguished honors, and his Senior year included a platinum debut album and pitching for his high school baseball team. “It’s been a good four years in high school,” he says. “I’ve gone a lot of places that I never thought I’d go and done a lot of things I never dreamed I’d do. This is bittersweet, but I’m really excited to spend the day with my friends and move on to the next stage in life.”

Scotty McCreery’s current single, which he performed at the CMT Awards, “Water Tower Town,” is currently climbing the charts. Additionally, he is on tour with Brad Paisley‘s epic “Virtual Reality Tour 2012.”
