We all fell in love with him on American Idol, and after some time away from the spotlight, Scotty McCreery has announce that he’s started work on a new album, something a little more country that the last.
“We just had the meeting with the label, and the album is a go,” McCreery told Rolling Stone Country. “And I’m going to make a country music record. That’s what I had to try to convey to the label, and they were all for it. The stuff I grew up with was that kind of music — I want to have some depth and portray a different side.”
We couldn’t agree more with Scotty. There’s no denying that this boy is straight up country. Remember his first American Idol audition? Although the North Carolina native hopes to write much of the new album, he’ll be teaming up with Nashville’s top writers, including Ashley Gorley, and Ross Copperman.
“I’ll play the game a little, but I’m going to try to stay true to what I love.”
Best of luck while recording Scotty, this is definitely an album we are looking forward to in 2015!
There’s a new Country Star in the making, and you can watch her compete for the crown of American Idol. Priscilla Barker hails from Amory, Mississippi. In her audition she does an a’capella rendition of Miranda Lambert’s “More Like Her.”
Does he have what it takes to win? Good luck on your journey Priscilla!
