Scotty McCreery Gearing Up for New Music in 2017 After “Fun” Contract With “American Idol”

Scotty McCreery Gearing Up for New Music in 2017 After “Fun” Contract With “American Idol”

Scotty McCreery’s fans have something to look forward to in 2017: new music from the former American Idol winner.

Scotty, who hasn’t released a new single since “Southern Belle” in August 2015, parted ways with his Mercury Nashville label earlier this year. Although his last studio album was 2013’s See You Tonight, Scotty has remained busy in the interim by touring and penning his first book, Go Big or Go Home, which was released in May.

However, it was the promise of new music that put a little extra pep in Scotty’s step on the red carpet at the CMA Awards on Nov. 2.

“We’re getting ready with new music,” said Scotty to Nash Country Daily. “I just signed on with new management and we’re close to getting new music out. The Idol contract is a really fun one to work out. We’re like one signature away from being free. A lot of the songs are already done, so we’re getting them back. We’re close. By January or February, we should have a new single out.”

Brian Kelley Finds A Solo Home

Earlier this year Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard announced that while Florida Georgia Line would continue, both guys would also be venturing out to do their own musical projects. As their FGL song “Long Live” is knocking on the door to number-1, Tyler is also climbing the chart with Tim McGraw and their duet “Undivided.”

Now, Brian is giving fans a taste of what’s to come with his solo project – he shared, “There’s a new kind of cowboy in town…who’s ready to ride this wave? Can’t wait for y’all to hear this new music.”

Brian also made some news in announcing that he’s partnering with Warner Music Nashville when it comes to any future solo projects he has, “I couldn’t be more grateful for everyone who has helped me on my journey to get here. I’m humbled to team up with Warner Music Nashville to take the music I’ve been dreamin’ and schemin’ up to the next level. This is just the beginning of a whole new adventure. My vision for what’s next is a vibe and state of mind – get ready to ride the wave with ya Beach Cowboy, y’all!”
