Scotty McCreery on his Debut Album, Music Video and More

Scotty is still “working away” on his debut album. He finished 2 or 3 songs in the studio yesterday. He says they are looking to get out his debut album in early fall.

Recording the album has been “rapid fire” says Scotty. For that reason, there probably won’t be any co-writes on the album, but that hasn’t stopped him from “jamming on the bus.”

Lauren Alaina on Coming Back to Nashville and More

Brian Mansfield of Idol Chatter interviewed Lauren Alaina Saturday night before the Idols Live concert in Nashville.

Lauren talks about coming back to the Bridgstone Arena to perform as the Season 10 runner up 1 year after auditioning there. She almost left without auditioning after the kid who won “Chattanooga Idol” was cut at the tables. She felt doomed after only coming in 6th in the competition. Luckily, her mom was able to calm Lauren down enough to follow through with her tryout. It’s a good thing she did!
