Have you been voting for the 16-year-old country sensation? How far do you think he'll make it?

Scotty McCreery is the great country hope on this season of ‘American Idol.’ While we are already well aware that he idolizes and respects Josh Turner, having performed Turner’s ‘Your Man’ ‘and ‘Long Black Train’ on the show, McCreery revealed he also idolizes Garth Brooks!

McCreery sang Brooks’ classic ‘The River’ on last night’s episode of ‘Idol,’ where contestants were allowed to sing songs by their own personal idols. Once again, McCreery’s deep voice can transport you to a watering hole in the middle of nowhere with its homegrown, mature-beyond-its-years timber. If he is this good at 16-years-old, can you imagine what he’ll be capable of at 20? Or 26?
