Scotty McCreery EP BB Top 20

Scotty McCreery, American Idol Season 10: Scotty McCreery EP (14,000, -65%, 54,000) (#19 Billboard 200)

This is very good considering most of the songs on the EP had been released on iTunes already, and the fact that it's only released to Wall Mart.  WTG Scotty!

Scotty McCreery's father, Mike McCreery, will be dropping by the studios next week to answer a few of your questions. I wanted to chat with him prior the American Idol Live tour stop in Raleigh, which is scheduled July 27 at the RBC Center.

Do you have a questions for Scotty's dad?

Post your questions in the comments section below. I will pick the best five to be answered in our video chat.  <-- Go here to leave your questions in the comments!

 I can't wait for his hometown concert. I wonder if we can do a live cell cast with somebody who will be attending it, so we can hear whats going on when Scotty comes out.  Are you attending this show? If your interested in setting up a live cell cast tweet me, and we'll see if we can work it out.  Or, if you're attending this show, please tweet me, so I can have a twitter list for that night and we can all follow along with your tweets! I can set it up so all the tweets for those attending show up here on the site.  Thanks!

I know this to be true.. because, well, he's S.C.O.T.T.Y!!!!! I know my posts have been slower than usual. It's summertime, I am crazy busy with family, and loving every moment. I love summer, I love my kids, I love my town, and I love summer with the kids, and being in my town. I don't won't to miss anything with them because soon enough it's gone. It goes so fast. And I'm gonna miss this.. Even if my day consists of WAKE UP!! WOULD YOU WAKE UP!! IT'S 11 WAKE UP!! than cook, pool, towels, wet floors, cook, pool, towels.. (wait who's towels are these) (wait who's clothes are these) "When will you be back" "Your not allowed that far on your bike" "You can't live on hotdogs!" and so on.

The first three stops on the "American Idols Live Tour" have been completed, and we're seeing the initial reviews of how homeboy Scotty McCreery and the other finalists are doing.

"[James] Durbin got them worked up, and winner Scotty McCreery got them out of their seats," wrote Ryan White in The Oregonian, Portland's newspaper. "The 17-year-old has big presence, a classic country voice and a single called 'I Love You This Big.' "

White said the song's title sounds like "a board book for toddlers." His review, which focused a lot on the commercialism and marketing power of the "Idol" machine, said the females generally do a better job than the men.

"It was easier to pick good songs for them, and they knew how to sing them," White said.

The 11 finalists played Portland on Saturday, after earlier stops near Salt Lake City and Everett, Wash.

Writing in The Salt Lake Tribune, David Burger said Stefano Langone, Casey Abrams, Haley Reinhart and Pia Toscano "showed the most star power, stage presence and vocal chops."

Burger noted that, unlike previous "Idol" tours, this one doesn't count down from lowest finalist to the ultimate winner. There are more medleys and group performances, Burger said. "The only contestant not seen until the end was winner Scotty McCreery."

Brian Mansfield, the "Idol" blogger for USA Today, also wrote about the Utah show. He said Scotty opens with Josh Turner's "Your Man," which became Scotty's unofficial theme thanks to its "Baby, lock them doors ..." opening.

"He puts a little extra effort into 'I can't believe how much it turns me on' and gets the same response as sparks raining from the ceiling would have," Mansfield wrote. "He wrecks the house with 'Gone' and looks as if he's hardly trying."

Other parts of the show, according to the reviewers:

--Pia and Stefano's take on Rihanna's "California King Bed."

--Casey's version of Santana's "Smooth," while playing stand-up bass.

--An all-cast finale that includes songs by Whitesnake, Journey and Aerosmith, the band of "Idol" judge Steven Tyler.
