Congratulations to newly-minted high school graduate Scotty McCreery . Less than 24 hours after taking the CMT Music Award for Breakthrough Video of the Year in Nashville, Scotty received his diploma Thursday morning at his school's graduation ceremony back in Raleigh, NC.
Scotty's father, Mike McCreery , tweeted a picture of his son's graduating class as they left the auditorium, with the caption, "Scotty McCreery is a high school graduate. Congrats to the entire Garner Magnet High School Class of 2012."
Scotty heads back to Nashville for a Sunday night performance at the CMA Music Festival.
