But a beautiful song I would like to hear Scotty perform live on American Idol is "Please Remember Me." I love this song for the exit song this season on Idol. I think Scotty sings it so beautifully, and it really showcases his voice. I love hearing the small part they play on the results shows so far. It's my 2nd favorite song of his besides "I Love You This Big."

I don't want him doing covers of old songs. I'm glad he recorded original songs (except one by Keith)...they may not all be perfect, but they are new.

Guess one person's wretched pablum is another's fun, energetic song. If I'd FFd through it, I wouldn't know whether I liked the song or not. I don't want him doing covers of old songs. I'm glad he recorded original songs (except one by Keith)...they may not all be perfect, but they are new.
For the record, I caught the following lyrics and then FF'ed through the rest of the performance:
In a water tower town everybody waves,
Church doors are the only thing that's open on Sundays
Word travels fast, wheels turn slow
Yeah workin' hard and livin' right is the only life we know
Friday night football is king
Sweet tea goes good with anything
The fireflies come out when the sun goes down.
Nobody eats 'til you say amen
And everybody knows your mom and them
You can see who loves who for miles around
In a water tower town.
Maybe Scotty penned those lyrics, in which case I guess "new" trumps everything else, but if you're going to sing somebody else's songs, why not choose some good ones? Why does it matter when it was written? As if most folks who listen to the radio would know one way or the other.

He didn't write it -- but it's one he personally chose to do for the CD.
I'd rather he record new songs rather than be branded a copy-cat or karaoke singer. Don't think the world needs covers of Shania, etc. anyway. He's been working on writing some songs for his next album. Maybe you'll want to memorize some of them.

No, that's exactly what I did. Is there some rule against that here? I think the song sucks. It's as simple as that. It's my opinion and, as far as I know, it's okay to say that here. And I never said anything about Scotty covering Shania Twain, so I have no idea where that came from.
(I'm sure you didn't just go to a lyrics site, and copy them down. lol.)

Lots of songs I hate others love -- no big deal if you hate Water Tower Town. The reference to Shania Twain was in response to your wishing he'd do some covers of oldies instead of new songs. Shania just came to mind because she's trying to make a comeback, I guess. Substitute the artist of your choice.

On the other hand, Gone and Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not (remakes, obviously) remain two of my favorite Scotty songs, and are on my commute playlist.

I don't know if anything will show up on Youtube, but someone on another forum was able to record both sets. He surprised everyone by including The Dance. He sang it a few years ago on a local talent show....but Saturday night's versions were incredible.

His new Christmas CD will be out October 16...and it's gotten great reviews.
He's had so many sold out solo concerts over the spring and summer...into fall. And he's added more for the winter.
He added a new video backdrop for the whole of his solo concerts. Saw it last Friday in Frederick....and was very impressed. The three music videos already released were part of it -- along with 12 other videos.

So I want to post a beautiful live performance from him. Years ago I saw Garth Brooks perform his beautiful song "The Dance" in concert. I love that song. And I love to hear Scotty sing that song too. Here's a wonderful performance from Scotty singing it at the Grand Ole Opry-

Season 10 American Idol tour, Scotty McCreery performing with Thia Megia, Haley Reinhart and Pia Toscano.
McCreery released his coronation single "I Love You This Big" immediately after winning the tenth season of American Idol. The song entered the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart at number 32, becoming the highest debut for a debut single since the chart converted to BDS data the week of January 20, 1990. The song sold 171,404 units in its first week, and was certified gold on August 25, 2011. A music video for the song, shot on Angels Point near Dodger Stadium, was released on August 9, 2011.
He signed with Mercury Nashville, earning a contract that gave him over $250,000 in advances for recording the first album.
Both McCreery and Lauren Alaina were invited to present at the CMT Music Awards on June 8, 2011, and they also both performed on the Grand Ole Opry on June 10. McCreery performed "I Love You This Big" and George Strait's song "Check Yes or No." Their trip to Nashville was also featured later in an ABC Special CMA Music Fest: Country’s Night to Rock where McCreery performed "Your Man" with Josh Turner at the CMA Music Festival.
McCreery toured with the American Idols LIVE! Tour 2011, which began in West Valley City, Utah on July 6, 2011 and ended in Manila, Philippines on September 21, 2011.
McCreery recorded Tim McGraw's "Please Remember Me" and it was released on March 8, 2012. It was used as the exit song on the eleventh season of American Idol.
For anyone who cannot recall the last man standing.
