Happy Cinco de Mayo to 2011 American Idol winner Scotty McCreery!

I know that I’m a little late to the party, as they say, but it was reported yesterday that the popular country music singer—who also happens to attend North Carolina State University, my alma mater—was robbed at gunpoint during an early morning home invasion of his apartment near the Raleigh campus.

Fortunately, the 20-year-old crooner and his roommates were unharmed, but the three armed suspects made off with wallets, cash and some choice electronics. No word yet on whether they have been apprehended or if police have any idea who committed this heinous crime… or why.

Personally, I think McCreery was targeted not only because of his status—he did win the 2012 Best New Artist award from the Academy of Country Music, after all—but also because he’s starting to resemble another American Idol contestant: Clay Aiken!
