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 teenagers’ new music, but added that both performances will be available on iTunes on Tuesday night.
Win or lose, McCreery and Alaina will also both be part of the ‘American Idol’ Live Tour, which kicks off in July. Stay tuned to Taste of Country for live coverage of this week’s season finale of ‘American Idol.’ The performance round airs on Tuesday, May 24, at 8PM ET, while the big results episode takes place on Wednesday, May 25 at 8PM ET.
I'm surprised Scotty has made it this far on idol. Never really liked his voice. I try to compare him to Chris Young and Josh Turner, but he doesn't have near the range or tone as they do. But this single should be interesting. Let's see what happens.
I found his performance underwhelming, but after listening to the studio version a couple of times, it's starting to really grow on me. However, Lauren was given the more powerful song, which definitely tips the scale in her favor.

Lauren got the better song = Lauren will win. Idol has done that a few years in a row now. The person who gets the better song wins. I really want Scotty to win tho. Still bitter over Hayley leaving over Lauren last week
