The Scotty McCreery train just keeps on rolling with no sign of slowing down. His debut album Clear As Day broke records when it debuted atop the Billboard 200 charts earlier this month, he sang the National Anthem at a World Series game, his singles and videos are being received well, he’s touring with Brad Paisley and The Band Perry in early 2012 (see dates below) and he’ll be performing at the CMA’s on November 9th.
Today he officially debuts the video on CMT for “The Trouble With Girls” shot by director Roman White, who is responsible for videos for Taylor Swift and fellow Idol alum Casey James.
The video is much like you would expect from Scotty. He’s wearing his ever-present silver cross necklace, and looking thoughtfully into the distance as he delivers lines like “They’re sugar and spice and angel wings/And hell on wheels in tight blue jeans.” I suggest watching this in the 1080p-(HD) option because on the regular 360p setting I completely missed Scotty’s chin scruff! They’re trying to butch him up a little and remind us that the newly turned 18 Scotty is a man, baby!
“The Trouble With Girls” was shot at Scotty’s high school, Garner Magnet High School, with his real friends, some of whom he’s gone all the way up from kindergarten with, including the pretty brunette featured in many scenes with Scotty (you can see her most clearly as his lab partner). The only way this video could be more wholesome and all-American would be if Scotty was eating apple pie in his Grandma’s lap while saluting the American flag.
