Scotty McCreery Takes Country Dads Advice

Scotty McCreery Takes Advice From 'Country Dad' Tim McGraw
The Boot
Posted Sept 1 by Gayle Thompson

Scotty McCreery has had a sharp learning curve since becoming the reigning 'American Idol' winner in May. The 17-year-old admits adjusting to his new role as a country star has been challenging -- but the counsel from one of his role models has made the transition a bit easier.

"I was nervous talking to Tim [McGraw] but then once we got to talking, within five minutes he was like a friend or a country dad to me," the North Carolina native recalls to People of his first encounter with his role model. The two performed 'Live Like You Were Dying' during the 'Idol' finale, which gave the high school student an opportunity to get some sage advice from the seasoned veteran.

"We were backstage in rehearsal and he was telling me not to change it up," the 17-year-old recounts. "He said he was a fan and he was like, 'This is your show. It's time for you to shine, not me.' He's just a great all-around guy. He said, 'Don't change who you are and you should be good.'"

Scotty is currently enjoying his time crossing the country with his fellow 'AI' contestants on the American Idol Live tour. "Being on the road is a lot of fun. You never know what to expect, especially in our shoes," notes the 'I Love You This Big' singer. "I was just bagging groceries and then you get thrown into this just like that. It's been a lot of fun. All of us are on the bus -- boys on one bus and girls on another. We're back there, we're jamming out with the guitars, making music and playing pranks, just having a good old time."

Scotty's new album, 'Clear as Day,' which he just revealed will include a track by Keith Urban, hits shelves on October 4.

I've put a page break because the review is a bit lengthy, but worth every word :)

American Idol winner Scotty McCreery releases his second single, The Trouble With Girls.

Following his success with “I Love You This Big,” which reached the top 15 on country charts and has sold over 500,000 downloads, recent American Idol winner Scotty McCreery released a new single, “The Trouble With Girls,” on August 30, 2011.

Lyrics in The Trouble With Girls

According to a USA Today article, Chris Tompkins and Philip White wrote "The Trouble With Girls." Tompkins has produced hits such Carrie Underwood’s “Before He Cheats,” and White has penned tunes like Rascal Flatt’s “I’m Movin’ On” and Reba McEntire’s “I’m a Survivor.”

The well-written track contains lyrics like “The trouble with girls is they’re so dang pretty. Everything about them does something to me, but I guess that’s the way it’s supposed to be.”

The ballad begins with some piano and twang as McCreery softly and sweetly contemplates what a mystery girls are to him. It flows into a melodic chorus with lots of drawn out syllables. “They sm-i-i-i-le that smile. They ba-a-at those eyes.” By the time the song reaches the third verse and refrain, it picks up a dramatic intensity and utilizes an interesting combination of strings and twang.

Scotty McCreery Reveals Title to Keith Urban song

CW Exclusive: Scotty McCreery Reveals Title of Keith Urban Song on New Album
Well actually, it’s a song from The Ranch . . .
Jessica Nicholson | Published: Sep 01, 2011

American Idol champ Scotty McCreery recently revealed that he'd be covering a Keith Urban song on his new album, but didn't say which one. Until now.
"That's been the big mystery," Scotty acknowledges to “‘What song is Scotty singing?’”
In 1997, pre-solo success, Keith was a member of trio The Ranch; the band released the single “Walkin’ the Country,” which reached No. 50 on the Billboard country singles chart. Now, Scotty will include the song on his upcoming debut album, Clear as Day, which will be released Oct. 4.
Keith gave the song to Scotty with his blessing. “He sent it over really early in the process,” Scott says. “He said, ‘I think this would be great for Scotty,’ so we took a listen to it. We didn’t [record ‘Walkin’ the Country’] during the first five [songs] we cut in Nashville. I think if we would have, maybe Keith might have been able to play guitar on the track, but now he’s on tour, kind of like we are. It’s tough for me to stop and catch my breath on tour, so I'm sure it would be really tough for him to do that.
“It’s a really cool song,” Scotty continues. “It’s easy to relate to. That was the big song from The Ranch, so it’s really cool that he threw it over to me. Hopefully I can do it justice and hopefully Keith likes it. It was a lot of fun recording that song.”

Scott McCreery CMT Hot Headlines

It's been brought to my attention

Over the last several months it's been brought to my attention that other sites use our posts for their sites. This is wonderful, fine even to me. I love to support Scotty, and I know others out there do also. Fan sites are great, necessary for a singer, it helps promote them, and shows there are dedicated fans out there who love and admire them.  The more the merrier :) 

I personally strive for positivity and a sense of friendship and fanship here.  I enjoy the comments, and the fans sending things to me. The feedback on twitter, ALL OF IT. 

BUTTTT... I bet you knew that was coming lol.  When you use our posts and don't at least credit us, and use EXACTLY WHAT WE TYPED word for word, or take our scans, or just copy us without any credit it's disheartening.  We work hard here to keep things very updated, Donna, myself and Tarah spend time to find the information, create the post, and get the information out quickly.  It's proper blogging etiquette to credit your source.. Idk if that's written anyplace HAHA, but it should be :) 

They say if somebody is copying you it's a compliment, SO HEY FROM ALL OF US HERE AT FANS OF SCOTTY THANKSSSSSS, but in the future could you please have the decency to credit the site, or at least change the wording around, since we usually write out something for every post.  When you copy EVEN OUR EXACT words, well LOL .. I hope this didn't come off harsh, HONESTLY I love that so many support Scotty. I know personally how much work keeping up a site is, so for that KUDOS TO YOU! Did I just use Kudos?.... Anyways,  back to our regularly scheduled blog. 

Teacher Kept Classes Focused on Music in an Idol Year

This is a very long article with a lot of pictures of Scotty, family and his choral teacher. I've inserted a page break due to the length. Enjoy!

In the fall of 2010, not long after classes began at Garner (North Carolina) Magnet High School, choral teacher Meredith Clayton learned a secret she knew would impact the high school and her music program.

Meredith Clayton warms up her group, "Die Meistersingers"
One of her students, Scotty McCreery, was in the process of auditioning for American Idol. She knew she would need to keep her students focused when everyone knew he was on the show. As she explains it, “the school year of 2010-2011 was sort of a whirlwind!”
