The country finale of American Idol was great, and I have to think both finalists will make it big in Nashville. I can see them touring together too.
I had Scotty as the favorite, although Lauren was fantastic in her final effort.
Scotty hails from Raleigh, N.C.. and you'll find expanded coverage at the News & Observer, one of our McClatchy sister papers.
