REVIEW: Scotty McCreery “The Trouble with Girls” | Keepin' it Country

REVIEW: Scotty McCreery “The Trouble with Girls”
As Johnny Cash would say, Scotty McCreery is walking the line. While he’s not staying on the straight and narrow for a lover, he is playing a very precarious balancing act between old school country and a contemporary sound. His latest single, “The Trouble with Girls,” continues to put him on a middle of the road trajectory, smartly attracting both the tweens and their mothers. “Trouble” is about the never-ending confusion (and attraction) guys have when it comes to girls and shows McCreery in the same sweet, safe light as his first single, “I Love You This Big.”
Lyrically, the song is much less mature than “Big,” a good thing since McCreery’s only seventeen so it might be a bit soon to be talking about a lifelong love. The lyrics here are also more playful, particularly the hook “The trouble with girls is nobody loves trouble as much as me” and the music is less smaltzy with memorable piano and strings parts.
McCreery’s deep voice, unusual on radio today, will continue to make girls swoon and, so long as he stays more Tim McGraw than Justin Guarini, he’ll be able to enjoy a long career to come. McCreery’s first album, Clear as Day, comes out on October 4.

Requesting Scotty's Songs On Radio

As of late there has been a lot of debate going on about what a "Anonymous" poster said on Idol Forums, about requesting Scotty's song.  For the record I am not saying they "ARE" or "AREN'T" legitimate.  I am though saying, and feeling something just is "Off" about the situation. Donna and myself have contacted some local stations, and some not so local ones, and DIRECT from the stations seem to be getting the same response.  "As long as your polite, and not demanding all is well."  <-- This is direct from QDR. I emailed them yesterday, and they got back to me right away.  Donna also had a similar response from a station.  We all agree we don't want to hurt Scotty, but we also need to be aware that this is the Internet, and anybody can say anything, anywhere.  I rather take advice straight from the stations, and not a random poster on a forum. 

*So, Request (Locally) if a station takes out of state requests, and you want to do that, apparently   that is fine.


*BE POLITE


*Don't spam

This seems to be the guidelines.  I also would like to state that NOWHERE do I see any station being spammed on Face Book as "Radioperson" (The screename of the Idol forum user who addressed the fans)  And, NO PLACE do I see or have I heard of any mass mailings.  I don't know everything (but don't let my kids know that, lol)  but I'm just letting the readers here know what we have found out, and what the stations seem to be directly saying.
