Scotty McCreery is having no trouble at all

'Idol' winner McCreery having no trouble at all
Last year's "American Idol" winner Scotty McCreery grew up listening to a few idols himself.
"The rest of the kids were listening to stuff like the Backstreet Boys. I was listening to Elvis," he said from a tour stop in Eugene, Ore.
There's been a whole lot of shakin' going on since the deep-voiced 18-year-old from Garner, N.C., was announced the winner on the "Idol" finale last May.
McCreery, also schooled on Merle Haggard and Johnny Cash, followed last summer's "Idol" tour and his first single, "I"Love You This Big," with his first album, "Clear As Day," last October.
It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200, the first debut by a country to do so. It has sold 1 million copies and yielded his second hit, "The Trouble With Girls."
No trouble here. McCreery recently was nominated for an Academy of Country Music award for best new artist (they'll be handed out April 1), is working on new songs, and recently recorded "a separate project that hasn't been announced yet."
Unlike many of today's new country stars, he's not looking to branch out into other things anytime soon.
"As of right now, I'm strictly country. I (want to go) as far as I can in the business. I'm going to give it my best shot," he said.
"Doing that, I keep in mind I have a family back home and a hometown I love," he added. "I don't want to be that guy that spends 300 days a year on the road. That's not me. That's not who I am. But I'll give it my best shot and see how it goes."

  1. Donna...the part you highlighted.....AAAAAAAAAAAA! Scotty your fans go crazy when they hear things like this...working on new songs...recorded a separate project... McCreerians go crazy when they hear things like this...What is it? What is it? The anticipation will drive us all crazy.

  2. I thought he was talking about the Idol elimination song. Isn't that when he went to the recording studio in Eugene, Oregon? He likes to keep us in suspense.

  3. At the time he said he was recording he had just did the Lancaster solo concert. So at the time I wondered if it would be TROUBLE or Man of Sorrow. I love Scotty so much and have from the first time I heard him sing on Idol. I feel like a proud mama. Thanks for posting so much great stuff. Its the first place I go every morning.
