See a little teaser of the upcoming “I Love You This Big” music video from Scotty McCreery, via Access Hollywood. “This is going to be a nice little chill summer bar-b-que…kind of a community thing on the 4th of July.” says Scotty of the video, “A really fun thing. Chillin’ is the word.”

In the interview, conducted on the set of the new video, Scotty talks about his busy schedule, recording his debut album on the road and more. The “I Love You This Big” video was directed by Shane Drake and shot on location in Los Angeles.

    He looks good there. I think he has a tan! :)

    I can’t wait for the video! Part of the fascination of this whole thing is watching the story of these young people’s careers-hope the video helps him move up the charts (how do videos do that, by the way, simply more exposure?)…

  • rfb

    Scotty is genuine and thats what makes him so cool! Not afraid of talking about what he believes. Now that is a sign of greatness!!

  • xxe

    Well.. how long do we have to wait for the video.. I’m pretty excited about it.. can’t wait !!

    I think society should crank out a lot more kids like Scotty- articulate, polite, witty and not a phony bone in that kid’s body. I hope “the business” never changes him.

    There are millions of kids like Scotty. I am a teacher and have about 25 every year! :) It’s just that, unfortunately, troubled kids and being bad gets more publicity!

    I couldn’t have said it better myself!! Scotty is a genuine, well grounded young man. I hope he stays that way.

    Looking forward to seeing the video.

    @ Buffy- I knew there had to be some other teachers on here :)

    Sadly, I haven’t encountered many kids like Scotty through the years -some (like my Pia of course, lol)- but not nearly enough.

    And I think that is why he’ll do well and pick up fans. People like to reward kids who remind them of their good friends, their peers, their students, their children…all those peeps who lead good lives and are good people. I think a lot of folks are really tired of seeing the Chris Brown’s of the world doing well career wise while the peeps who are cut from good cloth are unappreciated.

    He is getting really good with the interviews.

    Tess, I’ve found that many times if I just sit tight and shut up, you’ll go ahead and say exactly what I was thinking and save me the trouble of posting…lol

    It was very much a compliment.

    Amen to this! I’m so tired of the so called musical “artists” who put out songs that are loaded with expletives, think performing = grabbing their crotch, etc. Scotty is actually a role model for young people- how refreshing to see it. I might not be a fan of country music, but I love this kid.

    Count me as one of those. It’s disgusting imo.

    Scotty has always (to me anyway) come across as a person who is really chill and laid back to the point where it seems that if he’s really pressured, it doesn’t show very much. He has a great attitude and from the looks of it, it appears his parents have done a fine job raising him. No, I’m not saying he’s perfect but it seems that he has surrounded himself and has been surrounded by people who have had a positive impact on his life and that’s a good thing.

    I agree that Scotty is great with interviews. That interview he did with Casey just before the tour started was hilarious. This kid can be a comedian sometimes when he wants to be. lol

    I can’t wait to see the video. Thanks mj. :)

    Thank you Buffynut! The youth of today are great. Not only am I proud of my own kids and employees, I respect and enjoy almost all their friends.
    If you get to know kids for themselves , the vast majority are wonderful people.

    Scotty is the norm; not the exception.

  • eyelinerandcigarettes

    VERY excited to see this.

  • Tess

    My 16 year old pseudo nephew took me out to lunch yesterday and we discussed his hopes and dreams and where he wants to be 10 years from now…can’t remember everything he said but these phrases stuck in my head: if I work hard, if I keep my grades up, If I’m lucky, if the timing is right, if I stay focused…as well as terms like: she/he is really helping me, by band/cast/team mates are so great to work with, it’s so much fun to think I might be able to. For a generation we have mistakenly labeled as entitled these kids do have a good sense of values…and like Scotty and Lauren and the rest of the “kids” from Idol, I applaud them. For the most part they seem like some real level headed youngsters who aren’t taking this opportunity for granted.

  • rivermaya

    Ok. That little clip is indeed a tease.

    Scotty : “This is going to be a nice little chill summer bar-b-que…kind of a community thing on the 4th of July.”

    Music video almost always has a “theme or tells a story” that is related to the song.
    I am trying to connect the dot to this hint Scotty dropped reference to the song and cannot come up with anything…..hmmmm.

    So can’t wait to see the whole video and hope there’s more than that stage backdrop.
    eta : Liking his interview though.

  • eyelinerandcigarettes

    For the record, I think Scotty is better looking than Biebs. LOL.

    As a fellow teacher, I share your sentiment. Of the almost 180 11-15 year-olds that cross my door each year, far more try to fit into the Scotty mold than in the Chris Brown mold. It is nice to see someone who is unapologetic about his desire to live the right way in a position of being a role model. No, he isn’t prefect and he is going to make mistakes, but at his core he is a decent person.

    Adorable interview – Scotty is getting good at this. I think success is in his future for sure and good for him. I’m anxious to see the video.

    Quoting this last post before my own, although I could quote many others I agree with, lol. My mom taught for 46 years, and it breaks her heart to see how a lot of the young people are nowadays. But I know she is happy to see great kids (my own, her grandsons, included :-)) I have home schooled and have also been around many kids are just as great as Scotty. I keep saying it, but he is a breath of fresh air. He’s got my support and I pray he never changes.

  • KatieB

    It’s refreshing to see that more and more people are starting to again appreciate good clean music, from good people/artists. I love this kid and I hope he does well and keeps it real. I think he will.

  • hoa_teca

    Scotty, he is not a genius nor a phenomenon kid.

    He is the type of well-grounded boy next door that you can find at your school, at your home or in your neighborhood. Someone you can relate to. This is part of him charm.

    I look at him and I see a nice, talented kid who wants to live his life well and brings good songs to his audience. He gets my support, for sure.
