McCreery "sees" new disc in October

Tuesday, August 27, 2013 – Scotty McCreery will release his sophomore album, "See You Tonight," on Oct. 15.

McCreery penned 5 of the 13 songs on the disc. "I have been writing for a long time now, since I was a kid, but these are the first songs I've had a chance to record and release to the public and I'm excited," he said.

Frank Rogers produced the disc. McCreery's debut was "Clear As Day" in 2011. He had hit singles with I Love You This Big and The Trouble with Girls. The former American Idol winner put out a Christmas album last year.

McCreery, who is a student at North Carolina State University, said, "I grew up loving old-school country, and you'll hear those things come out on this record. You will hear the contemporary country, but you will always hear the steel guitar and fiddle and those little nuances that make the older country what it was. I definitely am trying to stay true to my tastes as an artist on this album."

Songs on the CD are:
Now*
See You Tonight*
Get Gone With You
Feelin' It
Feel Good Summer Song
Buzzin'
Can You Feel It*
The Dash
Blue Jean Baby
Forget to Forget You
I Don't Wanna Be Your Friend*
Carolina Moon
Something More*
(*Co-written by McCreery)

They will. This doesn't mean they're good, though, let alone meaningful. »»»
See You Tonight CD review - See You Tonight
Scotty McCreery's third release, "See You Tonight" is designed to market the season 10 American Idol champ as a more mature artist. Armed with songwriting heavies along with a guest vocal from Allison Krauss, it might work on paper. But in the end, he proves that his wheelhouse remains fun contemporary songs driven by his boy next door charm. Ironically, for a fall release, the album is heavy on summertime themed tracks and upbeat party anthems. From Feel Good Summer Song to »»»
Christmas with Scotty McCreery CD review - Christmas with Scotty McCreery
Hearing Scotty McCreery go into a spontaneous, Elvis-y C.C. Rider, right after a guitar-rocking, piano-pounding Santa Claus Is Back In Town makes "Christmas with Scotty McCreery" worthwhile. It's such a treat to have the boy wonder let loose and rock just a bit, rockabilly style. McCreery also rocks a touch during his version of Jingle Bells, which leaves him sounding more like Dwight Yoakam than Josh Turner, which is usually the comparative case. Rockabilly must have been on »»»
