American Idol season 10 winner Scotty McCreery releases his spiritual new song “Red Letter Blueprint”

American Idol season 10 winner Scotty McCreery releases his latest song, the personal and spiritual “Red Letter Blueprint” from his upcoming album Rise and Fall, out May 10, just in time for Easter.

“My faith is everything to me,” Scotty said in a press statement. “It’s held me up during my lows, and it’s been with me when I celebrate my highs. This new album was influenced by the rises and falls in my life through the years, so I wanted to sing about what sustains me. I’ve featured songs about my wife and my son, but I also wanted to share a song about my faith. I hope it is comforting to anyone who may need to hear these words.”

Written by Scotty McCreery with Derek George, Brent Anderson, Jeremy Bussey and Monty Criswell, “Red Letter Blueprint” is about taking solace in the belief that no matter how far away true peace seems, the path to get there is clearly marked.

The Triple Tigers recording artist is set to return to Talk Shop Live this Tuesday, April 2 at 8 PM ET / 7 PM CT in support of Rise and Fall. During his live appearance, which will be hosted by Storme Warren, the Scotty will perform new songs from the album and answer viewer questions while fans will be able to pre-order autographed CDs and vinyl.
