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

'American Idol' Season 10 winner continues run of success...
Now that the turkey coma has sufficiently subsided and moving is a little more comfortable, it’s time to catch up with those wacky American Idol kids. It may be X Factor season, but our AI friends James Durbin, Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina were all busy this Thanksgiving Day. For some, Thanksgiving means eating more quantities of turkey than is absolutely necessary, ever, and football. For others, it's parades and American Idol. I multitasked, just for you. Here are the highlights of my sacrifices from this past weekend! Thank God Nickelback didn't come up through the American Idol ranks or
He'll also be performing on the CMAs on Nov. 9
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

Is anyone in music hotter than Scotty McCreery right now?
Scotty McCreery has the Midas touch and is making history as his debut album, Clear as Day, enters the Billboard 200 chart at No. 1 with 197,000 sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. This makes him the first country artist to debut at number one for their first studio album, as well as the youngest man to top Billboard their first time out. Further adding to the accolades; Scotty is the first Idol winner since Ruben Studdard in 2003 to start their career with a No. 1 album, and scored a No. 1 spot on iTunes and Billboard’s Country charts. Clear
Jason Aldean and Zac Brown Lead 2nd American Country Awards; Scotty McCreery, Pistol Annies, Brad Paisley Also Receive Nods
Fans can have their say in the ACAs; Voting Runs Through Dec. 2
Country fans will once again have the chance to help hand out the hardware to their favorites when the 2nd Annual American Country Awards are handed out at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Dec. 5. The awards are decided strictly on the basis of the fans' vote and this year Jason Aldean and Zac Brown lead the way with eight nominations. It’s clear this these awards aim for a younger country audience with nominees that extend beyond the traditional, expected superstars and basing the awards solely on the vote of the fans. It's The People's Choice Awards,
As Scotty McCreery’s star ascends, so does his debut album Clear As Day; released this week it’s sitting pretty at the No. 1 spot on iTunes, Amazon, and projected to make it a perfect trifecta with a No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart as well. This would make young Scotty the first American Idol winner since Ruben Studdard to have their debut album come in at the top spot during its first week (Ruben’s debut album, Soulful, entered the top 200 at No. 1 in 2003). I reviewed Clear As Day earlier this week and even though I

New Music Tuesday; Oct. 4, 2011
There's no doubt the big story of the week is the debut release from American Idol Season 10 winner Scotty McCreery. American Idol enjoyed a ratings renaissance and there are many theories about how and why that happened but clearly a field of younger contestants had to help and soon-to-be 18-year old champ McCreery was a big part of that. He releases his solo debut after two big singles helped pave the way. I have to believe this is going to be a huge seller at least through Christmas. Check out the BlindedBySound review of Scotty McCreery's Clear As Day. If Scotty McCreery
Even a few missteps can't derail a fine debut from a rising country star...
Most recent American Idol champion, Scotty McCreery is turning 18-years old in about a week and what better way to kick off the symbolic passing into adulthood than to release your debut album? Clear As Day is the first of what is sure to be many solo albums for young Scotty and for a jumping off point, Clear As Day is a solid introduction into the country music world. We’ve gotten glimpses of what the album was going to be like in the form of leaked demos, and two singles – “I Love You This Big” and “The Trouble
The wait for American Idol Season 10 winner's debut is almost over!
Scotty McCreery's solo debut Clear As Day now has a release date and complete tracklisting, featuring 12 songs written by some of the hottest songwriters in Nashville's country music scene. It's hard to believe it's only been four months since young Scotty won the Season 10 American Idol crown but he has been busy in that brief time touring, recording, and giving his large fan base just enough to keep their appetites whetted. We've heard two of the album's 12 songs so far: “I Love You This Big”was his so-called coronation single after winning on AI and he followed
It's not a home run but it could still be a smash...
The pressure is on for Scotty McCreery with his new single "The Trouble With Girls," the second from his October 4 album Clear As Day. "The Trouble With Girls" premiered on WQDR-FM in Raleigh, N.C., McCreery's hometown country radio station and will soon be heading to digital outlets like iTunes and Amazon. "The Trouble With Girls" comes at a critical time for McCreery. His American Idol single "I Love You This Big" did well at iTunes and the video hit #1 at CMT. He has huge momentum with his fan base, who continue to buy his American Idol EP
McCreery's 'Clear As Day' drops Oct. 4, Alaina's 'Wildflower' drops Oct. 11
The wait is almost over, kids! Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina have announced release dates for their debut, full-length albums and they are a week apart. Have I mentioned these two seem to do everything in tandem? Scotty’s album is titled Clear As Day and will be out October 4, just shy of his 18th birthday. Lauren’s debut effort Wildflower will be out the following week, October 11. Scotty is working with mega-Producer Mark Bright, who has produced music for Carrie Underwood, Reba, and Rascal Flatts, just to name a few. Bright also produced Scotty’s post-Idol coronation single “I Love
Season 10 winner issues new video in advance of new album...
At long last! American Idol Season 10 winner Scotty McCreery has released a video for his post-Idol single “I Love You This Big” on CMT and no surprise to anyone it’s currently the #1 video of the day. Lauren Alaina released hers a day prior and like the itunes charts, they’re #1 and #2. These two do everything in tandem; finals together, singles released at same time, videos out a day apart with the same result – Scotty for the win. Scotty’s been busy making his new album (release date not yet confirmed), touring as part of the American Idol Summer
GaGa will rule these charts but for now has a little competition...
As predicted last week, Lady GaGa took over the iTunes chart watch but not with the immediate dominance I expected. Born This Way is the #1 album but Adele holds onto the #1 single with "Rolling In The Deep" for one more week. American Idol winner Scotty McCreery was #1 by the end of the week but didn't quite take the weekly title, debuting at number three. Runner-up Lauren Alaina is in at #8. On the albums front, Adele is #2 followed by Brad Paisley. Alaina and McCreery both placed their American Idol digital albums in the Top 10
The debut single from Season 10's American Idol...
Scotty McCreery’s "coronation" single "I Love You This Big" was released immediately following the announcement that he (not-so-surprisingly) was this season’s American Idol winner and went immediately to #1 on the iTunes singles' chart and stayed there until the writing of this review. My knee-jerk reaction to just hearing the title when Scotty performed it on the show for his final judges performance was that it reminded me of that game you play with babies; "How big is baby?...Baby is SO big!" Upon listening more, the inevitable humming and singing in my head followed and "This Big" morphed into "I
I saw this coming from the auditions...
OK, we’re at the end of the road here... we got our closure, seeing Pia Toscano, Paul McDonald, James Durbin and the three of you who still care got to see Casey Abrams on the Idol stage for the final time this season. There have been a lot of positive and cringe-worthy happenings over the course of this tenth season of American Idol. We lost Simon and then lost everyone except Randy and in the process gained a music legend and a diva at the judges' table. The three shined brightest in the auditioning process with JLo sat smack
The final performances have been given; it's all in your hands, America...
Tonight’s show starts off with the introduction of the two remaining Idol contestants- Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina. Ryan refers to the match up as the “boy next door” versus the “Southern belle” and informs us they both love country music, both are merely teenagers, and both want to win this season’s American Idol. Ryan addresses rumors that were swirling around right before the show began regarding Lauren's lack of a voice in rehearsals. One rumor was that Haley Reinhart was prepping to take Lauren's place in tonight’s finale, just in case. Ryan called out the show’s doctor who
It all comes down to this...
The night we as American Idol fans wait for is finally upon us! Tonight, Tuesday May 24th, Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina will perform for your votes for the final time. One thing is absolutely certain-whoever wins will release a country album, which is okay with me because the last three winners (David Cook, Kris Allen, and Lee DeWyze, respectively) have all been one-note and virtually interchangeable with minor differences. I’ll be happy to have them pollute the country waves and leave mainstream radio alone. I kid, I kid- I don’t even listen to “real” radio anymore. And while I’d
Looking back on the Top 3 performances as we prep for the big finale...
I know we know who’s in the finale on Tuesday vying for the title of this season’s American Idol but I wanted to go over the performaces anyway since I already had all these notes and just got behind this week. We are left with Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina which is no surprise to most people… the big surprise to many is Haley Reinhart. She was at the bottom of the pack for much of the first half of the top 13 results shows, never appearing to be a front-runner or even a contender, and now here she is, Top
Haley's finally gone but it's too late for me to care...
Here we are- Top Three Results Show and I have to be honest, I’m a little nervous, not because I care a lot at this point but, because I know I’m covering this through the finale and a few different scenarios are more painful to imagine than others. Let’s carry on and see how intense my level of pain is going to be, shall we? Show starts off with the top four contestants (James! I’m so happy to see you, even if you’re wearing a trucker hat!) going to JJ Abrams’ studio Bad Robot and getting a sneak peak of
