OFFSTAGE: Scotty McCreery Hints at “Huge Step Up”

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

Thanks to this new ScotTV , I feel like I know everything about Scotty McCreery and, most importantly, about his next album. In the webisode series’ first installment, there is some behind-the-scenes footage of McCreery rehearsing for his Weekend Road Trip tour. He says he only has college classes on Mondays and Wednesdays, so his plan is to be on the road Thursday through Sunday. Then he says of the album he has in the works now, “I think it’s definitely a huge step up from where we were two years ago with Clear as Day.” That album gave us two Top 20 singles and a bunch of other amazing country songs, like “Write My Number on Your Hand,” “Dirty Dishes,” “Back on the Ground” and the title track. So I hope McCreery doesn’t stray too far from the sound of his that we’ve grown to know and love.
