Scotty McCreery Tells the Stories Behind the Songs on ‘Clear as Day’

Clear as Day

19 Entertainment

Scotty McCreery has just two weeks to go until he releases his debut album, ‘Clear as Day,’ so you can hardly blame the reigning ‘American Idol’ champ if he’s excited to talk about it.

Taste of Country caught up with McCreery to do just that recently, and he shared the inside scoop on the stories behind the album’s 12 tracks, which he promises will give listeners an honest picture of who he is. “I’m 17, and that’s me,” he insists. “This album’s gonna relate to that, and hopefully people like it. I’m really proud of what we’ve accomplished these last couple months.”

Of the album’s first single, ‘I Love You This Big,’ McCreery said, “It has a great feel to it. It was perfect for the ‘American Idol’ moment onstage because it could relate to my family or it could relate to my fans out there who got me through the whole ‘American Idol’ journey. We thought it would do pretty good at country radio, too, and we’d give it a shot, and it did just that. It will always be special to me because it’s my first song.”

Talking about his most recent single, ‘The Trouble With Girls,’ McCreery recalled “After I listened to the demo once, I found myself singing it in the room and going out to dinner and humming it to myself there. When you hear that kind of song and you can’t help but keep singing it, you know you’ve got a good one.

“On Twitter, when I said my new single coming out tomorrow is ‘The Trouble With Girls,’ all the girls were like, ‘What do you mean, the trouble with girls? We aren’t trouble.’ But when you hear it, it’s really a sweet song that talks about all of the great things about girls, like how pretty they are and how they have wonderful smiles.”
