(You Tube was disabled by UMG. Sorry!)
The song is rumored to be Scotty’s next single
Random! Dutch iTunes is selling Scotty McCreery‘s alternate coronation tune. You know, the one he didn’t pick. I couldn’t actually download “Out of Summertime”, but I was able to grab the 30 sec clip:
(UMG made me take it down)
A little background on the tune: It was written by Nashville hit-makers Tim Nichols and Jonathan Singleton. Nichols’ e résumé includes Tim McGraw’s “Live Like You Were Dying, ” Joe Nichols’ “She Only Smokes When She Drinks, ” Lee Ann Womack’s “I’ll Think of a Reason Later, ” Faith Hill’s crossover hit “A Baby Changes Everything, ” and Trace Adkins’ “This Ain’t No Thinkin’ Thing.”
Singleton has written tunes for artists including Billy Currington (“Don’t”), David Nail (“Red Light”), and Gary Allan (“Watching Airplanes”).
“Out of Summertime” was produced by Carrie Underwood producer Mark Bright, and came to the attention of the Idol peeps when they reached out to BMI looking for a song. Read the entire story of “Out of Summertime” HERE.
I have to say I like this better than “I Love You This Big”, but it’s not really a coronation-type song. Which is probably why I prefer it.
