'American Idol' on the Charts Valentine’s Day Edition: What's the Top Love Song By An Idol?

By Fred Bronson
BIG LOVE: In celebration of Valentine’s Day, a list of the top 50 love songs according to chart performance on the Hot 100 has been posted at To be eligible, a song had to have a form of the word “love” in the title. Using the same criterion, what is the No. 1 love song by an American Idol?

It’s a tricky (tricky, not “trick”) question because you want to start by searching through the repertoires ofKelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood. But you won’t find the No. 1 love song there. You can look through the hits of Daughtry and you’ll have no luck. Here’s one more clue before the big reveal: the No. 1 love song according to chart performance on the Hot 100 is by an American Idol winner.

Give up? Alright, SPOILER ALERT, here’s the answer. The No. 1 love song by an Idol is “I Love You This Big” by Scotty McCreery. You won’t find a bigger song by an Idol with the word “love” in the title. In second place is the cover version of Bon Jovi’s “You Give Love a Bad Name” by season six runner-up Blake Lewis and in third place is “If This Isn’t Love” by season three’s seventh-place finalist Jennifer Hudson.

The portion of the article mentioning Scotty was posted. For the complete article:

Since winning the 10th season of the hit television series, American Idol, fans have fallen in love with the deep, melodic voice of country cutie, Scotty McCreery. Born and raised in North Carolina, his southern roots shined as he belted out songs from country legends, like Alan Jackson and Travis Tritt throughout the Idol competition. Scotty became the youngest male winner and the only country male artist to win the American Idol competition. Upon winning, Scotty released his coronation song “I Love You This Big”, which became a Top 15 hit and earned him the honor of having the highest chart debut for a new artist since 1984.
In October of 2011, McCreery’s first country album, Clear As Day, debuted and went platinum. The album is an impressive collection of songs that vividly paint a picture of who Scotty is as a person and an artist. “On this album, I wanted them to make sure they really got who I am, how I grew up in Garner, N.C., and what I’m all about,” he says. “It was also really important to me to keep some of the traditional elements of country music in it, to remember where country came from, and I think we did that.” With themes such as girls, family, and the Bible, the album is a cool blend country and contemporary music. McCreery’s second single off the album, “The Trouble With Girls”, achieved rapid success, with lyrics describing the power women have over men.
In 2013, Scotty McCreery kicks off his national tour.
