Scotty McCreery: ‘It’s Been a Heck of a Year’ – “As far as I’m concerned, that’s the next single,” he continues. “It should be out January or February of next year. I’m excited for the fans to finally be able to get it on their phones and the radio and all that stuff.” McCreery announced in February that he was no longer with Mercury Nashville / Interscope, the label with which the North Carolina native signed after winning Season 10 of American Idol in 2011. He’s been dealing with legal issues and red tape in the months since but, he says, will soon have some good news to share. “It’s been a heck of a year,” McCreery admits. “You always hear about the Idol contracts and stuff … We’re still dealing with it all, so we haven’t gotten totally released yet, but … we’ve got a few people in the back rooms who are kind of waiting on it all. So once it all breaks, we’ll be rocking and rolling — just waiting on one of those Idol signatures.” – Read more at The Boot

Dancing with the Stars’ Jana Kramer on Gleb Savchenko’s Debilitating Flu — Right Before the Finale! – On top of all that, he’s really sick with the flu. He’s literally falling apart right now and had to reschedule rehearsals this weekend so he could rest a little more. He’s struggling. Usually I’ll get wrapped up in the anxiety and stress of the people around me, but because I’ve worked with Gleb for so many weeks I have been staying really grounded and trying to relieve some of his stress. I don’t want this last week to be stressful. I want to enjoy it and really make the most of our last week dancing together. And to be honest, we trade off. Last week, I was so nervous and he calmed me down. Now it’s my turn to support him. – Read more at People.com
