American Idol Season 10's winner, Scotty McCreery, pleased fans with his first album almost 2 years ago and his new album just might be slated for October 15 of this year!

Back in June, we learned that the still-untitled sophomore album would be out in October, but now it seems we can mark our calendars for the big day. According to Hits Daily Double, October 15 will be the release day, just a week after Season 12 champ Candice Glover and The Voice's Cassadee Pope release their respective albums. 

When the album was first announced, Scotty said he had already recorded 18 songs, but that not all would make the final project. "We've over-cut, which is so nice," he said, before doling out even more news.

"We're 90 percent sure that we've got a big-time singer that's going to come on this track with me," he said about a duet he cut during CMA Music Festival week. He also revealed that there will be at least one faith-based song on the album as well as a song he refers to as "Suntan" during live shows.

In the meantime, we'll be playing "See You Tonight" on repeat. We seriously cannot wait!
