Things have been quiet on the Scotty McCreery front these days, not because he's not busy but because, I have been. When I read today that our Scotty is debuting a video on GAC's (Great American Country TV) chart at number 1 I had to change all that and come update you as soon as I heard. “Water Tower Town” is the third single off Scotty's debut record Clear As Day and with a strong showing on GAC looks like it will follow “I Love You This Big” and “The Trouble With Girls” and could be another Top 20 radio hit for Scotty as well.
“Water Tower Town” was one of my favorites when I reviewed his album last year, I believe I called it “rockin'” and I know I loved the Southern colloquialisms and it made me nostalgic for my youth growing up down south. This is an ideal summer song and I know for a fact I'd have been blaring this tune from my sassy little, red '92 Geo Metro as a teen going to and from a football game, the lake, work or all three.
The video is your run of the mill “this is what life on the road with Scotty is like” fare but it's fun to watch and very youthful. You all know I'm a huge fan of artists doing things that are appropriate for their age (young and old) and this is definitely geared toward his target demographic (teens girls and their cougar mommas) and shows him to be wholesome, adorable and silly like all 18 year-old boys should be. Scotty's been touring with Brad Paisley and The Band Perry since January and will continue through the Fall, catch them if you get a chance, in the mean time check out the new video below:
