|Season 10 Winner Scotty|
While McCreery has been on tour this summer with the “American Idol Live Tour 2011”, he has
also been working hard behind the scenes on his first feature album and new music video.
Scotty, who was signed a record deal with Mercury Nashville and Jimmy Iovine’s Interscope Records shortly after his win, says his first music video for “I Love You This Big” will be out on August 9th and his first album will be released later this Fall.
He also announced the creation of his new official website at “ScottyMccreery-Official” and says he will be releasing new tracks, news, and videos before the album comes out so his fans can see and hear what he has been working on.
Scotty talked about his new album saying,
“I’m really excited to let people hear what we’ve been working on and putting so much effort and energy and time into. It’s something that I’m really proud of. I can’t wait for them to hear it! Hopefully they’ll feel what I was feeling in the studio.”

The Garner North Carolina native was the youngest person to ever take home the American Idol crown and within weeks had shattered the Billboard 200 charts with his first single.
“At his age, Scotty has the chance to become one of the first teen idol type celebrities born from the country music genre. There are thousands of young girls who would pay any price for a poster of a shirtless Scotty McCreery hanging in their bedrooms. And their parents would be happy to buy it for them because he is a fantastic role model for any teen.”
Scotty McCreery has been packing in the fans this summer on the American Idol Tour with fellow contestants James Durbin, Paul McDonald, Pia Toscano, Casey Abrams, Lauren Elaina, Stefano Langone, Jacob Lusk, and Hailey Reinhart.
