Carrie Underwood with Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina at today’s Simon Fuller Walk of Fame ceremony
Update: According to Idol Chatter, Carrie Underwood will pick a song for Lauren Alaina and George Strait will choose for Scotty McCreery. No word on what those songs are. A third song will be a favorite performance chosen by Lauren and Scotty. eta: Carrie posted on her fan club message board that the song she chose for Lauren is one she really wanted to sing on the show but never got the chance.

Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina’s coronation singles have LEAKED courtesy of the Taste of Country blog!
Country fans won’t have to wait long to hear Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina on the radio. Both plan to officially release their debut singles on Thursday, May 26, one day after the ‘American Idol‘ winner is announced. Taste of Country was tipped by a source at Universal Music Group, who tells us that McCreery’s song is called ‘Love You This Big’ and Alaina’s is titled ‘Like My Mother Does.’
Both singers will premiere their new singles during this week’s ‘Idol’ performance show on Tuesday, May 24. Our source didn’t provide further details about either teenager’s new music, but added that both performances will be available on iTunes on Tuesday night.
I wonder if country music songwriter, Tim Nichols co-wrote Scotty’s song? He tweeted recently, “American Idol finalist Scotty McCreery recorded one of my songs tonight in L.A.!” Nichols wrote “Live Like You Were Dying” and other songs.
UPDATE: Country artist, Jesse Lee also recorded a version of “Like My Mother Does”. Listen HERE.
Lauren’s single was recorded by Kristy Lee Cook for her ill-fated album, “Why Wait”. Hm. Listen below:
