    Lovin’ the track titles. So, OOS made it on his album. Can’t wait for Oct 4. :D

  • Kirsten

    Cool beans!

    Interesting that ILYTB appears so early on the track. Usually coronation singles get relegated to the end of the album.

  • eyelinerandcigarettes

    Out of Summertime! YES.
    I wonder which of those are upbeat and which of those are the ones that made Scotty’s mama cry.

    Oct. 4 can’t come soon enough.

  • windmills

    Dirty Dishes is probably Neil Thrasher/Michael Dulaney/Tony Martin but there’s a couple of other possibilities and I’m not 100% sure.

  • dadriany

    Wow! Out Of Summertime is in the album!

    I was hoping his version of Your Men would be included
    Can’t wait till October 4th

    Interesting that David Archuleta recorded over 30 songs for his debut, and Jive picked and chose 13 of them to go on the album. It sounds like Mercury had Scotty record only the ones that were going to make the album. No extras, no wasted time recording songs that would not be used. Archie was still working on his album after the tour ended and Scotty’s was finished before. Mercury seems way better at time management.

  • Kylee

    Can’t wait! Dirty dishes must be about forgetting to do the dishes and getting in trouble :)

  • Incipit

    Wow, Shooting for Oct 4th is early – although not impossible if all they need is studio time to record the songs. And all the post production, of course.

    At least that track list answers my idle curiosity about what in the world will they give Scotty to sing about that could be believable, from a High School senior who hasn’t had a girlfriend in “three or four” years.

    Looks like that was handled neatly, going by the titles. A nice mix of nostalgia and keeping the themes within his life experience.

    Good fortune to him, hope he continues to do well!

    I had rather hoped ILYTB wouldn’t be on the album. It has had its run and could have been saved for a future “best of” compilation. Otherwise, I like the sound of the titles and hope CAD is a huge seller.

  • hayes

    Interesting that ILYTB appears so early on the track. Usually coronation singles get relegated to the end of the album.

    And tagged as a “bonus track”. I guess they really treat ILYTB as a real single and not just a coronation single. I wonder if this will be a trend from now on.

    Yes, there’s no wasted time in the recording studio. But that’s not necessarily a good thing. Recording extra songs can help a label pick the best songs out of more options. A song might look like a hit on paper, but the right artist, style, production, etc. needs to be behind it. Example: “Honeybee” by Blake Shelton looked like a hit on paper, but what if another artist sang it like Jason Aldean. It wouldn’t be as big of a hit because it doesn’t fit Jason’s style. I’m not saying Scotty’s album is not going to be good or successful, but it is entirely possible he would have had different songs & maybe even better songs if he had recorded more songs.

    I’m wondering what the heck a song titled “Dirty Dishes” could be about, seriously, I can’t think of any lyric line that would go with that, lol. Love the title “Water Tower Town”. I think a lot of people will relate to it. Was glad to see a track list when I came to MJs today, and I’m really looking forward to this album!

    Dirty dishes in the sink. They ain’t goin’ anywhere. I’ll pour us a little drink. Run my fingers through your hair.

    LOL.

    Water Tower Town

    When I saw that title all I could think of was Kelso falling off the water tower. But then I’m a little nutty.

  • auntmable

    Having 3o some songs and recording 11 didn’t do David any favors!! I love David A and was dissapointed that his albums didn’t do better, I don’t understand the musidc business, David has a great voice, but I think Scotty has a wider variety of listeners,all ages, I am past social sec age and I Love Love Scotty, but of course I love country music, most of it, some songs are kind of silly. It seems like now they are just trying to put put new songs to quickly. I look for Scotty to have at least three #1on this first album, It has been so much fun to follow his successso far and I look forward to the future when hes as big as Tim Mc Graw.

  • Jae

    The only think I am scared of wrt this album(well, other than the act that its country) is that it will be old school country that I can’t get into. I always make a point of supporting my idol faves financially but I am kinda scared I won’t be able to come through for Scotty(didn’t like Trouble with girls). I like Some of the titles though. Can’t wait until the song previews are up.

  • eyelinerandcigarettes

    I also intrigued with “Dirty Dishes”. Hmmm. Wonder what that is all about.

  • Pam

    I’m eager to hear “Dirty Dishes” as well. Interesting. lol Thanks mj for all of the deets. :)

    I think it has less to do with a trend and more to do with the fact that ILYTB did so well in both radio play & sales. The more songs an album has on it that people have heard on the radio, the more likely casual fans are to pick it up. If ILYTB hadn’t done well & would have faded away pretty quickly a la NoBo, then it would probably have been a bonus track or not even on the album at all.

  • LexieN

    Thanks for the details!! I can’t wait for October 4…

    I’m so hoping that he does well, The Trouble with Girls has some of us worried. On another forum, fans are even worried that he won’t get another single, a la the Lauren worries on another thread here. Sometimes difficult to read all the info.:)

  • kaypar

    Im sure he will have another single listened to clear as day and I don’t see how he can’t make it a single as well as the one Keith Urban gave him. As far as the not having a girlfriend in 3-4 yrs doesn’t mean he hasn’t dated I don’t see the big deal about that. Out of summertime is great song too.

    No big deal, IMO. I remember all the weeping and hand wringing over ILYTB. Turned out that was all over nothing. I think the momentum that will sell Scotty’s album is already underway. Mercury isn’t likely to do anything that will interfere with that or neglect any effort that will keep the tracks greased.

  • LexieN

    Thanks above. I hadn’t found the blogs when ILYTB came out:) so didn’t know to worry… The comments about TTWG are about radio play, but hopefully they’ll add:)

    As far as the album, I am excited–The two versions of it are top sellers at Walmart already, along with Scotty’s EP…by two versions, I mean they have the regular and a special Walmart exclusive with a fan magazine and Scotty baseball cards:)

  • chearts77

    @ Lexie – Thanks for the info on the delux edition at Walmart. That must have just popped up today cause I’ve been checking the WM website daily to see where his album ranks. It’s really cool that Scotty, himself, put together the collection for Walmart. I already pre-ordered from his website…I might pre order the Walmart one too cause I want those extra goodies. LOL!!!

  • upsidedawn

    I could be TOTALLY wrong, but I picture the “Dirty Dishes” song being something about his mom–forgetting to help her out and help with the dishes or something in that vein, and then maybe regretting it later because his mom works so hard.

    So watch it be something completely different… Like maybe dirty dishes is a euphemism for something.

  • jeffreythegleek

    I also intrigued with “Dirty Dishes”. Hmmm. Wonder what that is all about.

    I’m going to take a guess that he and a girl aren’t getting along and they’re airing their dirty laundry in public to their friends. But ‘dirty laundry’ is a Don Henley song and taken, so it’s called Dirty Dishes. Sara Evans’ biggest hit was Suds in the Bucket where she left them and the clothes hanging out on the line to get in a car with her boyfriend and take off. Maybe his girl left the dirty dishes and took off in a car with him?

    Not surprised it wont take Scotty too long to record his album, he only sings in one octave so how many takes could there be…the music is simple in all his songs…A week in the studio is probably long enough.
