Aww! Scotty McCreery Wrote Original Songs About a Girl Who Broke His Heart

We all know Scotty McCreery can belt out a country tune like nobody’s business. But the kid can write songs, too, at least according to Gary Epperson, Scotty’s hometown guitar coach of eight years. Epperson told TasteofCountry.com, “I heard him do one about a girl… that was about how she had broken his heart, and the girl at the party [was] cryin’.” Sounds like a true-blue country hit to us!

Epperson also recalled the first time he saw Scotty pick up a guitar, saying “…[F]irst day he had a strum and it was rhythmic. I was quite impressed for a 9-year-old.” So yeah, add “prodigy” to Scotty’s list of musical superlatives. Is there any doubt that this guy was born to crank out the country music hits?
