Less than 24 hours after winning the USA Weekend Breakthrough Video of the Year award at the CMT Music Awards, Scotty McCreery took a walk to a greater goal: receiving his high school diploma.

Though he won American Idol just a year ago, Scotty already has many career accomplishments under his belt. His first single “I Love You This Big” debuted at number 32 on the Billboard Hot Country Charts, making instant history as the highest debut from a debut single. Just three months later, the single was certified gold.

Now three singles, a successful album, two ACMs and one CMT award later, Scotty walked across the stage at the Raleigh Convention Center to receive his high school diploma from Garner High School.

It was an intimate affair, though, as no one without a ticket was allowed into the ceremony, and tickets were only handed out to students and families.

Next stop on the American Idol’s trail? Freshman year at North Carolina State University in the fall.
