Scotty McCreery Album to Include a Keith Urban Song

“It’s not going to be poppy,” he says of his debut album.

Though American Idol winner Scotty McCreery’s debut album, Clear as Day, will be chock-full of original tracks when it's released on Oct. 4, Scotty tells The Boston Globe that the disc will include at least one cover track.

“There’s technically going to be one cover,” says Scotty. “Keith Urban pitched a song my way, and it’s one he did way back when he was part of the band called The Ranch. He’s on tour right now so we don’t know, but he said he might play guitar on the track.”

No doubt the possibility of some guitar work by Keith will be just one more reason to pick up the debut offering from this teen singer with the basement-deep voice.

Scotty plans on staying true to his traditional country roots on the album. “It’s not going to be poppy,” he says. “That’s one thing we stayed away from. I grew up with the old-school stuff, so I didn’t want to completely stray from that. We’ve got the rocker songs, the up-tempo stuff. But when we slow it down, the songs get more intimate, and you can definitely hear some of the more classic elements.”
