attends the 2011 CMT Music Awards at the Bridgestone Arena on June 8, 2011 in Nashville, Tennessee.Good news for fans of Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina! The winner and runner-up of American Idol Season 10 will premiere their new music videos on CMT within the week!

Lauren Alaina will get her premiere for “Like MY Mother Does” on August 8. Scotty McCreery gets his “I Love You This Big” premiere the following day on August 9.

Watch the blog for more details.

“This is going to be a nice little chill summer bar-b-que…kind of a community thing on the 4th of July.” Scotty told Access Hollywood of his new video, “A really fun thing. Chillin’ is the word.”

Scotty told Idol Chatter prior to the Nashville Idol show that they managed to find “a little spot of country” in Los Angeles to film the video, which takes place at an old-fashioned country bar-b-que.

Lauren’s video will feature a cameo by her mom!

Thanks to @jeffreychrist for the initial tip.

    All I can say is….FINALLY! It’s about time these videos come out. heh

    Thanks for the good news mj. :)

    YAY!!! I’m glad they are premiering on CMT. I get that channel. LOL!! I don’t get GAC, unfortunately. I’ll be keeping my TV on CMT both days anxiously awaiting the videos. Go kids!!! :D

  • TylerWV

    Most of CMT videos are 3am-noon, then its rerun movies and tv shows. GAC is all music and has become my fav country channel. MTV owns CMT so I guess thats why the awards shows on CMT have so many non-country presenters. They do have a top 20 show at CMT.com and if either video is added to the list, you can vote for one video a day to make top 20 and be shown in that time slot.

  • chearts77

    @Tyler, yes, GAC is much better than CMT. GAC doesn’t come with the cable package I have. If I want it, I have to pay an extra $15/month for the package of channels that include GAC. Looking at the package, it isn’t worth it to me. It would be $15/month extra JUST for GAC. LOL!! I will be voting on CMT when they add the videos to the list. :)

    Can someone explain to me why Lauren’s is coming out first. I don’t care if it’s just a day, last I checked the envelope said SCOTTY MCCREERY was the Season 10 AI winner. IMO Lauren’s shouldn’t even come out until a week or two later. What the hell is the sense in winning anymore. It just not fair at all, the winner should come out first not the runner-up. That’s the real world. Winners first, Runner-ups Second. TPTB are really starting to get on my nerves and are competely taking advantage of his young status. Where the hell is his management team. If there is a reason for this I would love to know so someone please enlighten me. BTW this is not a bash on Lauren, so please Lauren fans keep your pants on. I like the girl. It’s just the principal of the darn thing.

    I don’t see what the big deal is if Lauren’s video comes out first. It just creates more anticipation and buzz for Scotty’s video. In fact, wasn’t Pia’s video suppose to come out first on Aug 5th, or was that just a rumor?

  • eyelinerandcigarettes

    FINALLY!

  • LexieN

    I was so excited–and then I remembered I don’t get CMT:) or is it :(… anyway, GAC should air soon after, right?

    I understand the feeling about the Lauren video getting aired first, but I’m getting sort of used to it–or is it beaten down? Pia’s is supposed to air this Friday I think, but that’s a different channel…

    I hope this gives Scotty’s single a little push!

  • jeffreythegleek

    Lauren’s the soup or salad. Scotty’s the main course. Pia’s the dessert. Haley can be the after-dinner drink. All is well in the world!

  • mhann

    It does make sense for Lauren’s video to come out first if they are releasing them that close together. If Scotty’s video came out 1 day before Lauren’s, then she would take the attention away from Scotty and his video when hers was shown the following day.

  • lili_anne7

    Lauren’s the soup or salad. Scotty’s the main course. Pia’s the dessert. Haley can be the after-dinner drink. All is well in the world!

    lol, except that would make Pia the appetizer if her video really does come out this Friday.

  • Pam

    Personally, I don’t see what the big deal is about Scotty’s video debuting the day after Lauren’s. For all we know, Lauren’s album could be released before Scotty’s or Pia’s could be released before either of them with Haley being 4th in line. The winner’s album isn’t always released first each year either. I just used that as an example. ;)

    Anyway, if the videos give their singles a push, then that is what really matters imo.

    Love this/it made me feel better! Pia would need to be the appetizer since hers is coming out Friday…

    is it too weird to have fun with this? I just had Bojangles for the first time in my life so, of course, Scotty’s video is the fried chicken:)

  • Kylee

    Yahoo finally! I was beginning to wonder if they would ever air them!

  • Lucy1234

    It makes no difference whatsoever whether Scotty’s comes out first or Lauren’s comes out first. They are both being shown next week. Mercury Nashville decided to release to CMT first, they will probably release the videos to GAC soon thereafter. It is my understanding that the label officially releases the videos to CMT and/or GAC and those release dates are sometimes listed in the Billboard newsletter or one of the country news publications. Hopefully they will add them to the voting page for the top 20 but the top 20 is not based on actual votes on the site like GAC’s top 20. It is much easier to make the top 20 on GAC than CMT. Needless to say I am very happy that Lauren’s video is being released.

    It’s just the principle and integrity of the matter. Winner first, runner-up second. But it is what it is. Just happy it’s finally coming out.

    I see it completely the other way around. The winner gets the pimp spot. He doesn’t sing first on the tour, either.

  • Kylee

    Yeah I don’t think a one day difference really matters, despite who came first.

  • kaypar

    It doesn’t really matter whose is first but I do think Scotty’s should be. It may be a ratings thing or who knows what. I like Lauren but love Scotty. He has more than doubled everything over Lauren in all sales and even request on radio so I don’t think we have to worry about Lauren overtaking him anytime soon. For tha reason alone they may release Lauren’s album before his so she can get some love in before Scotty debuts and we all go crazy!!

  • mandabutter

    Excited for both of them. Hope they put Scotty’s in regular rotation, if there’s a demand for it of course. :) CMT, the television channel, also does a daily High 5, counting down the most viewed or requested songs of the day around 9am EST I believe. Not exactly sure how or when an artist would qualify, but get on that eager fans!

    Ladies first. :)
    Perhaps the CMT Premiere will coincide with when it is digitally available as a music video on iTunes?? Lauren’s available on Mon, Scotty Tues…. Scotty may be on the winning side of that for those keeping score because Tuesdays are new album drops, and a banner would/could be prominent -if record/management peeps have their stuff in order with Apple.

  • Ratna12

    Setting up my DVR right now.
    I can’t wait to see them. :)

  • Indigobunting

    It is a little odd they are coming out on CMT first, which is really just MTV.

    Most Country fans watch GAC, which is 100 times better.

    But happy for fans who get to see them premiere :)
