Josh on Scotty McCreery: "I Don't Envy Him One Bit"

Yes, the two singers sound alike, but Scotty is way too busy for Josh Turner's tastes, Josh says.

You’ve heard lots of folks compare American Idol winner Scotty McCreery to country star Josh Turner.

They do sound a lot alike, right?

Though Josh tells Country Weekly columnist and After MidNite radio show host Blair Garner that he’s glad he doesn’t have Scotty’s busy life right now.

“When I see him, he’s just doing the best he can at just staying awake,” Josh says. "He's pretty busy, and I don't envy him one bit.

"He's going from here and there and everywhere, doing the music thing, finishing school and playing baseball. I got to talk to his parents a good bit, and they're pretty tired and busy. They were taking a red-eye out after the [American Country] awards show so he could be at school the next morning. . . .

"But he's kept a level head on his shoulders, and for his age and what he's been through, I think he's handled it really well, and I'm proud of him."
