After successful debut albums, a number of country music stars are turning their attention to the all-important follow-up. There’s a lot of stress and mythology around the sophomore album. Some say it’s a chance to slump, while others use it as an opportunity to prove the doubters wrong. Whose upcoming sophomore albums are you most looking forward to?
While there is no firm information about release dates for any of the five artists listed below, all have either finished releasing singles from their debuts, or have nearly exhausted those options. Pistol Annies were favorites of critics in 2011 and 2012. The Band Perry released ‘If I Die Young.’ Can either trio top those efforts?
Also included is Scotty McCreery — who is delivering a Christmas album in October — as well as Thompson Square and Hunter Hayes. These six make up the hottest of the country newcomers. If there is another sophomore album you’re looking forward to more than those listed, tell everyone about it in the comments section below.

  2. The day I went to see Scotty!

    by tweety-bird @ 9/24/2012 12:08:52 PM

    Hey everyone! I went to the Great Frederick Fair in Frederick, Md Sept.21 to see Scotty in concert and I had so much fun!!! When we arrived and walked into the fair we heard this drum beat, so we walked over to a fence and looked through and saw Scotty on stage doing a soundcheck! We stood there and watched him for over an hour! It was amazing! Here are some pictures and a video from the soundcheck! ( We were far away and the camera I used was not the best, so it is blury/fuzzy, but good audio)






    After that we went over by a fence to see if he would come out of his bus and I got this picture

    He did come out of his bus, but he got right into a van and it took him somwhere ( we never did figure out where) We tried to follow it though haha!

    After a few hours it was time for the concert to start! I have some videos and I will be adding some more to youtube today! ( I will post them here when they are ready) Here are the ones I have and some of the pictures that I took.
    (picture)





    After the show was over and it was time for the encore song, we (mysef, my dad & my sister) went to the stage and watched from there. Here are a few pictures from that!
    (video)


    And here is the BEST part of the day! About an hour after he show we was standing at the fence and Scotty came out and met us and signed our stuff!!! He signed my ticket and a picture that I took with me! :) That was my favorite part of the day! Here's a video and some pictures:) My mom recorded and my dad took the pictures! My mom told him I am one of his biggest fans and he looked
    at me and raised his eyebrows!

    Scotty trying to hand me my sisters ticket!

    Scotty signing my picture!

    I had SO Much Fun!!! He is so sweet to do that and he loves and cares for his fans so much! I am glad I had that experience and plan to go to more of his concerts in the future!

    There will be more pictures and videos to come later.
    (Less) go to fanbuff/scotty fansite to view the video and picture of the story which i cannot copy the video and picture beautiful picture

    1. Hi Donna.
      So sorry I did not wish you a Happy Birthday, So I do want to say Happy Birthday to you and thank you for all your hard work on this site.

      It seem all of us have been wondering about the Christmas in Heaven and the Christmas is coming around again song on the album.


      Scotty has stated on "the Boot" that there are 9 christmas song and thaere are 2 new orignal song as stated above. At least that is what I have been reading.

      Is there a chance that you or someone that does the tweeter could check with his parents Judy or Mike (as I see sometime you show there tweets} and clear this question up. Are both of these song new orignal one?

      thank you very much. Bob

      Delete
    2. I believe when Scotty says "original" he is meaning they have never been released by another artist before - they are not songs that he himself wrote.

      Thanks for the birthday wishes.

  3. I wonder why Scotty isn't on the cmt 12pack. He has been on for so long at no.1 and then no.2 and now not on there. Hard he went fro the top spots to nothing. McCreerians, we need to VOTE to put him back on the list. He is on the voting list for three songs, seems he should be on the chart some where. Please vote there and GAC to keep him on another week. They will retire him after 15 weeks so lets keep him there. It's just too bad he doesn't have a single like YMTLG or WMNOYH aout. They are great songs and would have been great videos. Still hoping.

    1. Me too. Still hoping that WMNOYH will be released. Who knows? There seems to be plenty of time left. I know his management is very savvy about release times for new Sophomore album and they have a lot to consider since timing is everything in music industry. Plus.....Christmas is coming!!!!!! I personally love Christmas music so I'm pumped. Another plus I will see him in concert in two weeks!!!!! YAY

    1. Mercury Drugstores (in the Philippines, too,) are also into Scotty's music. I heard almost all of his songs from his CD being played, one time, when I was there. They definitely have great taste in music. :D

  5. That's exciting to hear from the Philippines! I know he has many fans there. Thanks for supporting him. He is one special person and we just have to be patient with those who aren't supporting him yet. His day is coming when they'll all take notice. We get impatient for his sophomore album, but look at the others who haven't made theirs, TBP in particular! I just hope it comes early next year so he can get in on the award shows. We all want success for him so much...even now he has been very successful...we still want it even more. I want all those who didn't think he could make it to see what he is all about. Just read a comment that he shouldn't have won AI, but that you know who should have, being a better singer. And I think, can these people be that blind, that they can't see all his awards so far for his talent. His gold records and platinum album! Where are hers? She;s doing okay, but Scotty seems to excel in all areas. Not just the voice which is amazing but the whole personna. I go back very often to his earlier performances and see how composed he was even then. He never showed his nerves, he was comfortable in his own skin and comfortable on the stage unlike her where her nerves showed a number of times. He was the best and the most ready to start his career. He didn't have to develop those things but only to improve, which he's done. He owns the stage every time he performs. We need some videos from his shows coming up. Where is Nana and Linda when we need them? They did the greatest videos...they should be on a payroll to follow him and get great videos!! I do appreciate all videos we get. Just can't get enough of this kid. Keep it up Scotty. ILYTB....G-ma Dodie

    1. I dont worry to much about her . Her voice isnt better then his you really cant compare the two and who ever wrote the article must be a fan hers. Look at his sales compared to her. She is growing up and I wish her well but Scotty has the whole package .

    2. An "article"? Wasn´t it just a mention made by a fan of someone other than Scotty? Who cares! People have different idols who they fight for.
      So what if not everybody loves Scotty. WE do and so do more than a million others. If somebody says their idol should have won it doesn´t matter a bit. Fact is: THEIR idol didn´t win. Period. Scotty won. Period. And if people post their frustration about a competition 2 years ago it says nothing about Scotty. It only shows some people have a hard time accepting the fact that their idol lost to Scotty. And rightfully so.

      Delete
    3. G Dodie! Love your comments! You're so right! She is NOW a great singer, and I really loved their duets! But as you said he won because HE WAS BETTER! And still is better!..He said he thought she would win, bless his heart!..That's another reason we love him-he is so humble! And he says they are still "great friends"! And "SHDC" & "It's all good" Also I'm sure that Scotty helped her on AI to gain confidence and become a better performer! The haters will be silenced when he reaches the heights he is destined for! His Christmas Album looks to be a HUGE push in that direction! CAN HARDLY WAIT!!

  6. I am not worrying about her, just amazed that people can't see his awesome talent. His voice is beautiful, no doubt. I don't listen to radio, but once in a while I turn on my local station for a little while and never hear him. Tonight the second song that came up was hers, can you believe that? The voice isn't as pure sound like Scotty!. G-ma Dodie

  11. At this point, I would be surprised if there's another single released from CAD. After a year, CAD is still selling well after concerts. Its had huge popularity, but, I think, its time to move on, and Scotty's Christmas album is doing just that! Maybe I'll get my Christmas shopping done early this year...as I'll be listening to Christmas music every day beginning in October! Lol. Should be fun and a great inspirational lead-up to Christmas!

  12. We all have to wait. I don't know that there will be another single and I don't know that there won't be either.

    1. I'm hopeful that one of his Christmas songs will do well on the charts! Some of the songs he's singing (crooning) on his Christmas Album, with that deep velvet voice of his are going to be awesome!

    2. We KNOW now that there´ll be a single released from his Christmas album as confirmed by Judy and we know his next album will be released in spring and we know any single takes weeks and months on the country charts. And knowing all that we def. can conclude there is no way there will be chance for another single from CAD to be released

      Delete
    3. Hey, I think it would be great if they released another song off CAD in Jan with a video because hopefully it will get a bump from the xmas cd's success and radio will play it. TBP released another song and video recently and Pistol Annies also did the same and their albums came out many months before CAD. He has many great songs on CAD and I love it still after listening to it a thousand times. Then he will not have to rush like he felt he had to do with CAD. He said he wanted to be more creative. Whatever happens - as long as I can see him perform and hear him sing anything, I am a happy camper!

  15. I agree that on Idol he was well composed, very comfortable on stage and confident in his ability to perform. Not over confidence that would be taken as cockiness, but just the kind of confidence you need to enter such a competition. He is amazing. Remember JLo saying there was nothing awkward about him, that he was comfortable in his own skin and that was the mark of a true artist. I too like watching those earlier shows, Lancaster, Ca. , his first solo, really showed he could do solos w/o a problem. Hoping for many solos in 2013. I think he is better in his solos, though with Brad he is still great. (Will always be grateful to Brad for giving him this oppotunity.)Even still in 2012 he is being requested and that is awesome. Love Scotty this big!!!

    1. I agree with your comment! Scotty on AI had amazing stage presence and was able to express so many emotions when he sang! He was incredible! eg: 'you've got a friend' and 'gone'! His first solo concert at Lancaster when he sang 'out of summertime' I think the security guards had to be especially on guard, cause there was wild excitement around the stage! Loved it!!

    2. Me too!! And he is sooo much better now!!..I just hope I'm around to see him hit the heights I know he's bound for!!

  16. Fact is there will be a single released from Scotty´s Christmas album. That´s why there certainly won t be another single released from CAD. As to an article or comment or whatever not satisfied with Scotty´s win ... forget it. No importance whatsoever.

    2. I agree - I'm sure he & his management team/label have their strategy & keeping pace with any momentum in his career - I think he's doing just great for someone new & getting better & better all the time - Definitely his sophomore country album is THE album to look forward to! - Everyone knows that CAD was his debut album off winning Ai10 - because this album was as impressive as his performances throughout Ai10 & because he continues to impress audiences with all his live concert performances, all are just waiting to hear his sophomore country album -

      Ai10 is long over & like any contest someone comes out the winner - people should just move on already - And I will add that winning just gives one that great opportunity - everything after is up to the singer/ artist to make his/her mark in the music industry - a lot are still struggling or have not really made it big though they still record & perform - Because & as long as Scotty stays true to who he is, I can see him having a big career for a long time -

      I'm just going to relax & enjoy his journey -

    5. I will just add that Scotty has enjoyed (and still is enjoying) tremendous success and huge fan support, the fan support that not only won him Ai10, but also an ACA, ACM Award, CMT Music award, almost every country poll where he is nominated, not to mention being nominated for a Teen Choice Award in 2011 & 2012, making history on the Billboard Charts, an ICM nomination this year, AND the Guinness World Record! All this WITH NO radio support!

  17. Scotty tweeted from Nashville on Sept 20th, a Thursday..........doesn't anyone wonder what he was doing in Nashville that day? It piqued my interest. If I were to guess, I would say he was recording........but what? Tracks on the sophomore album? a new single from CAD? a new single from CWS? Now, I find that a challenge to figure out, how about you ? kait, or

    5. Some radio stations do straight Christmas tunes for weeks before Christmas. Other stations slip in one or two here or there, not counting Cumulus who we KNOW won't play Scotty's music.....we should at least catch a song or two of his on a decent radio station. Surely the Raileigh station.

      Delete
    6. I am so mad at Cumulus.They played many new artists today like Janna Kramer,HH and promoted him touring with CU as a special guest with complete set with a stage production,Dustin Lynch, and another new artist I didn't know. I am very happy they are being played, but mad they can't play Scotty. What adds salt to the wound is their gain new listeners every time I play the station because they are the only country station in this area.

  20. I anxiously await anything he puts out. But in my own dream, and this is just me wishing, so no need to say that it will never happen or he doesn't need to do this, I am only saying I would love an album of cover songs or his own slow romantic type ballads. Love CITYWMH, ICMH, Amazed and other songs showcasing his deep tones. I love seeing him perform the upbeat songs because he has so much fun and I love seeing him having fun...Gone...TROUBLE for ex. I love seeing him with the guitar too. I know his album will be a mix. I am just saying I would be in heaven hearing an album with slow ballads. JLo said after he sang You Are Always on My Mind, who knew he rock it out with GONE and the sit there and captivate us with his sweet voice with YAAOMM. He can do it all and I want it all. But I can dream, too, for slow sexy songs!

    1. I ordered the album American Idol Season 10 Scotty McCreery for 9.98 on I-tunes. I play it all the time and I really love it. That's next best thing until and when he does a cover album like you are talking about - I agree - I love him singing all those songs - just absolutely love him - I know some time he will release a dynamite song of his own with the same caliber as all those covers we enjoy so much - because he is improving all the time and gets better as time goes by. Just look how much we all enjoy CAD and think "the best is yet to come" WOW!!

  21. No one knows for sure that he won't release a single from CAD so just wait. Granted it is unlikely but I wish people wouldn't say absolutely not unless they personally know that. All the reasoning is right but to say absoltely not... Just saying.

    1. You are right. We don´t have verbal confirmation conc. CAD. But we have confirmation about a single will be released from CWS and we have confirmation about the s. album getting out some time after winter season. Adding the time a single needs to get out and climb on the charts and adding many reports about radio not accepting CAD makes more single releases from CAD highly unlikely

  22. This from Mjsbigblog today!

    ABC has announced the first group of performers set for the CMA Awards, airing on ABC November 1. Kelly Clarkson, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley and Little Big Town will all take the stage.

    Kelly Clarkson–rather controversially I might add–is nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year. She’s up against country artists, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride, Taylor Swift (well, marginally. heh) and Carrie Underwood.

    Here's hoping Scotty is in the next group! As his big fan, its hardly worth watching if he's not there performing!

  23. I'm just going to say this . Its not the songs on CAD is why radio don't play them it politics they don't like reality singing shows they think he hasn't paid his dues . Carrie went threw the same thing when her sophomore album came out it changed everything .it cost alot of money to launch a single . A song can only get to number one with radio play .I'm not sure another song From CAD will be released .

    3. CMT will need to change their ways because Blake Shelton & Keith Urban are judging.It's good for country music! Get with the times CMT. I am back listening to country because of Scotty! What's a turn off are the politics of it all. I recently heard an icon in music say that it is a different market today being more global so Idol etc helps the contestants do really well and will bring more fans all over the world to country. Have any of you seen all the line dances to Scotty's songs on youtube from Asia? I love that he is being so well received. Also, Shawn Johnston is on Dancing with the stars and she loves Scotty.Maybe she could request him for country night. I would love to see him there.

      Delete
    4. I think that because of Scotty & the huge fan response to him (despite being pure country), AI & The Voice are really giving more attention to country - Scotty has inspired more aspiring country singers to try out on these shows & even in local contests -

    2. Think this would be great tour for Scotty. Since this is to be Strait's last tour, think it would be kinda cool to play on idea of older generation completing touring aspect of his career and new generation coming in. There aren't a lot of artists which I can think of that would really elevate Scotty and give him the "just right" match and opportunity that touring with Brad has offered. George could offer that and it would get him to the right audiences......people that love traditional country.

  26. Scotty needs to get in with Reba...Kelly sang with her on the Idol finally when she won, she has appeared on the Reba show in the past, she has Reba's husband as manager and she's marrying into their family. No wonder she is being classified country. I don't think she should be up for Female vocalist of the Year at all. TS, neither, IMO.

    1. I question Kelly's nomination too, she's been pop for so long...has she paid her dues in country?? Not too sure about that one. Anyway my favorite singer of the nominees is Martina McBride...love her voice and singing!

      Delete
    3. on the comment above I meant to say martina mcbride is the opening act for the 20 days.

      Delete
    4. Agree that Kelly's nomination is questionable. I don't think she has begun to pay her dues in Country if that is what is expected. Would say that TS hasn't either for that matter since she isn't country,...just wins the awards (frustrating)...I agree with comment above that Martina is my pic among female vocalist too. Also agree another single is needed to be released to keep Scotty alive on charts, lists etc. (aside from CMAS single). However, I'm doubting it's going to happen and think also that if it were to happen, anything more from CAD is unlikely, and agree it's time to move on from CAD as someone said. I would prefer a single release from his sophomore album rather than CMAS single, but doesn't sound like that's gonna happen either. Don't artist do that all the time, put out a single before a debut album? As far as comments related to LA, she's not even on my radar...I don't see or hear much of her and wondering if she isn't struggling. Is she touring with anyone? Something that some say though doesn't make sense to me is that she gets radio play, but then it's said radio doesn't like reality show winners and therefore why Scotty is not getting radio play. So logically that doesn't add up? Why does LA get radio play, assuming she does? I don't listen much, but I have heard her more than Scotty. But I live in GA.

      Delete
    5. I'm also not happy with the nominees - I still think fan-voted awards are the best bec they show the pulse of the fan base & are more real -

      Delete
    6. Im sure they play her in GA shes frim there they play Scotty in NCarolina . It cumulus that dint play them .LA song 18 iches slipped down to 40 on the charts. She only made it to 38 I think . its not a bad song shes getting the shaft also .not that I care how she's doing not my cup of tea.

      Delete
    7. Cumulus has their main headquarters in Atlanta, GA -

      Delete
    8. KC has powerful vocals, but she always wanted to do rock or the more edgy music - I think her label tried to keep her in pop & she seems to do well in that genre - she never wanted to be labelled a country singer - she's been in the industry for 10 years but it always seemed to me that she was sort of floundering between genres - I think the past year was "make or break" time for her - the music industry is very highly competitive these days especially with all the TV talent shows like AI, Voice, XF, etc., - I like her voice, but none of her songs/albums - Definitely not deserving of even a nomination for a country music academy award or any country award!

      Delete
  27. if Carrie likes LA so much why didn't she have her open for her? I can't believe Martina is an opening act. I would love to see Scotty open for Meranda Lambert or Blake or Taylor .I would want him to be a guest acT instead of opening act.

    3. A guest act would be like band Perry they perform after the opening act and the get more time on stage.

    4. Guest act or opening act -- as long as he gets the main stage is great! A duet with Strait &/or Martina would be awesome too! - should he be on this tour, that is :-)

  28. Martina McBride is also my pick for the cma award - love her voice/singing - on another note, I think billy dukes likes Scotty since he always includes him in these polls ;-)

    2. Martina is awesome yet she has been passed over many times for awards that she was so deserving of, iIMO. Same for Scotty he was most deserving of the upcoming award but was passed over. Because the industry is $ driven

    3. Martina certainly deserves this one!!!

      The CMA used to be about recognizing real artistry & talent -- over the years it's been about "pushing" the newer singers & pushing aside the more deserving artists who will always get the most fan votes - I am just soooo impressed that Scotty was nominated for an ICM award (inspirational country music) & alongside such big names too! I think this says a lot! I think that he is nowhere in the category of those other new "country" singers who all put out the same sound - Scotty is in a class all his own, following in the footsteps of the country greats!

  29. off topic, but it's late and not much going on. Just wanted to say I have not thought much of Beiber, mainly his lifesstyle for such a young kid. I love Scotty's moral values. But JB did a nice thing in getting to know a sick little girl and keeping in touch with her. She was 6 and just died. She had a mock wedding at the hospital with a cut-out of him and was called Mrs. Bieber. Nice interview with him on the Today Show with her in his lap. Touching. These kids get so many requests to do something for someone who is ill and it is impossible that they can fulfill all those requests. But I take my hat off to him. He made a family's difficult time a little better.

    1. Yes!! Also my opinion of JB rose a lot after seeing & hearing his MOM on "Huckabee"!!..Of course He will NEVER equal Scotty in talent OR Charity!..Scotty doesn't publicize most of his Good Deeds!

  30. Yes, it seemed to be genuine. I was touched by it. He's done a lot of nice things like that over the years.

  31. Speaking of Justin Bieber doing nice things, Scotty after only a year in the music business has too, but maybe not with as much publicity!....most recently young Laci, who hopefully is doing well! Just know, Scotty, made going into surgery easier for Laci as she had something special to think about!

  32. I know Scotty does nice things too. I just mention this because it was current. A lot of the performers give a lot of themselves and would do more if they could. I think people should be careful how much they ask of these kids, though.

  36. I'm just looking at Scotty's schedule of concerts & my oh my, his Dec calendar is starting to fill up! Hope he gets to sing a Christmas song off CWSM on some TV shows too - He seems to be balancing his life/schedule well - very well-grounded & with great support from his family & friends...& his fans too! \0/

  37. In talking about Martina McBride had to go and listen to some of her songs on utube. I don't think any female artist in country can sing as heartfelt as she does, about issues in people's lives. She really is an amazing person and performer! So glad Scotty, had the opportunity to perform on the same stage with her!

    1. Yes! If she does not get the CMA award this year, I think we should barrage the CMA & give them an earful! Like we did TOC/BD :-)

    Glad that our young man's calendar is slowly, but steadily being filled up....praying that many opportunities will open up to him, so he can promote his songs and be able to reach out to many people - touching their lives with his songs and with his God-given talent.

    1. Its the father/daughter dance sponsored by WCTK radio for grades 1-6! I read where some teens are going to try and sneak in. I guess its a good cause since a lot of people are outraged that the town cancelled future dances like this? I feel sorry for the teens who are left outside. OH! well! the radio station is very fortunate to have Scotty perform for these youngsters!
