Scotty McCreery: Brad Paisley is "Good Teacher"

The young American Idol winner is learning a lot from the experienced country star. Scotty McCreery: Brad Paisley is "Good Teacher"

It’s always good when, very early in their careers, young artists can find a mentor of sorts who can help them understand the business while they gain valuable experience on the road.  American Idol winner, Scotty McCreery is learning a lot from his time touring with Brad Paisley and the North Carolina native is definitely not shy about expressing his gratitude and admiration.

"Brad is a great guy," Scotty says. "He treats his opening acts well and treats the people who work for him well. I haven't been on any other tours, but I've heard horror stories about the headliners not talking to their opening acts and don't want anything to do with them ... they just brush off all their workers and it's all about them. But Brad, he's the total opposite.  Brad will walk around and eat dinner with anybody.  Sometimes, he'll ask me to come eat dinner or lunch with him. He's just an all-around good guy. You can talk to him about anything."

It really seems to have left a big impression on the budding star who adds: “That's how I want to be.  I don't want anybody to feel intimidated before they come talk to me. I want to be open with anybody, kind of like Brad. He's a good teacher for me. If I'm in school, he's a great professor."

Sounds like the right lessons are already being learned.
