Scotty McCreery is off to a great start since his “American Idol” win. His coronation song “I Love You This Big” sold nearly 200,000 downloads since its release and going strong. With the song still building on country radio, it’s surprising that the American Idol 10 winner’s second single has already leaked. “Out of Summertime” written by Nashville hit-makers, Tim Nichols and Jonathan Singleton, is already selling on Dutch iTunes.
As expected, Scotty is going with a straight-up country vibe with his new material. “Out of Summertime” is a great alternative to his first ballad-y single. It’s upbeat and twangy, perfect for those warm country nights. Admittedly, I like my country a little more pop infused, but I sorta dig his old school country-sounding second offering. The track will appear on the 17-year-old’s upcoming debut album which will be released by Mercury Nashville.

I have a feeling that it’ll do solid business and predict it’ll be a scorching hit as the mercury gets hotter. Hopefully, Scotty can restore the luster back to winning the “American Idol” crown. The show hasn’t had a successful winner sell over 1 million CDs since Season 7’s David Cook. Maybe he’ll be the Nashville Justin Bieber.
