The former American Idol winner scooped the breakthrough video of 2012 for "The Trouble with Girls" at the Nashville, Tennessee prizegiving but he had no time for the afterparties.
Instead the 18 year old caught a late-night flight to his native North Carolina to pick up his diploma from North Garner High School at the Raleigh Convention Center the following morning.
McCreery took to Twitter to share his excitement about the two accomplishments, writing:
Ive enjoyed these last 4 years.. wouldnt trade any of them for the world. #iamatrojan— Scotty McCreery (@ScottyMcCreery) June 7, 2012
