New Scotty McCreery music is in high demand! An unreleased track, 'Out of Summertime,' has created an internet fan frenzy, initiating rumors that the plucky, banjo-fueled tune will be the follow up single to his record-breaking debut, 'I Love You This Big.' (The track was posted on an unofficial 'American Idol' YouTube page Monday but was taken down on Tuesday.)
Last week, the 'American Idol' winner's premiere tune became Billboard's highest-charting debut for a new artist since 1990. "I am humbled and shocked by this news," Scotty said. "I can't tell you what it means to me to be on the same charts as my musical heroes. I want to thank my fans and especially country radio for their support. I continue to be amazed by everything that has happened to me in such a short time."
Amidst his inaugural CMA Music Festival appearance and American Idol Live! tour dates, the North Carolina native will begin recording his full-length debut album this summer, with an expected fall release date. Both his debut album and 'Idol' runner up, Lauren Alaina's will be on the Mercury Nashville record label.
