American Idol Season 10 winner Scotty McCreery is wasting no time getting a second album out onto the market. Christmas With Scotty McCreery, the follow-up to last year’s Clear As Day, will drop on October 16 well ahead of the holiday season.
"Christmas has always been my favorite time of the year,” Scotty explained to Country Music is Love. “And what is Christmas without music? We start listening to Christmas songs early in the McCreery household, so it felt right. I’ve always wanted to record a Christmas album since I’ve had my music career."
The album will contain eleven songs, his favorite of which is an self-penned number called “Christmas In Heaven.” His other original contribution to the list is titled “Christmas Is Coming Around.”
The track list also includes a number of classics, including “Holly Jolly Christmas,” “Santa Claus Is Back In Town,” “The First Noel,” “Winter Wonderland,” and “Jingle Bells.”
