American Idol‘ season 10 champion Scotty McCreery returned to the ‘Idol’ stage on Thursday night (April 11) to perform his new single ‘See You Tonight,’ introducing fans to a little bit of a new sound.
McCreery shot to fame after winning the show; his debut album ‘Clear as Day’ has been certified Platinum. ‘See You Tonight’ is the first single from a forthcoming second studio project that marks McCreery’s debut as a songwriter, and that’s part of what makes it work. The song seems more from his own perspective than simply another track from the Nashville mass market song factory, making it more unique than some of his past efforts.

Dressed in a simple black t-shirt and black jeans, McCreery delivered the song with his trademark aw-shucks confidence. Framed by jaunty acoustic guitar chords, an insistent beat and a bright guitar solo, ‘See You Tonight’ is exactly the kind of track that McCreery should be doing t this stage of his career, and he made the most of the opportunity to launch it in a big way Thursday night.
