Scotty McCreery is paying tribute to a teacher that had a big impact on his life in the new “Behind Every Famous Person Is a Fabulous Teacher” campaign.  Scotty has selected his Garner High School baseball coach and teacher Derik Goffena for the honor for encouraging him to beat the odds.

His teacher says Scotty has developed the ability to maintain humility and stay driven despite winning American Idol and becoming a platinum-selling country star in the past year.  One of the most important lessons Scotty has picked up from his favorite teacher is that “nothing worth having comes easily.”
