Scotty McCreery is busy with the American Idols Live tour, but that won’t derail him from working on his debut album in between each show. McCreery, who won Season 10 this May and will be closing out the show each night, is going to make pit stops at the closest recording studio in each city that the tour hits, pulling double duty.

In a new video interview with Yahoo, McCreery did say that he probably won’t be able include any original songs on “this particular album, but hopefully on the next couple albums. On this album, I have been so busy after the show I have not had time to sit down on the couch and relax. I’ve been writing, but it’s not quick enough to get them on the album.”

McCreery did deem the process of recording his first album “a pressure cooker,” but he also keeps things in perspective, saying, “It’s fun work. This isn’t going to the office and sitting behind a desk. This is singing for a living.”

Overall, the ‘Idol’ winner has five songs already in the can for his debut, revealing that “we have a couple songs that speak to small town America.” Additionally, there’s a heartbreaker, too, as one song made Mama McCreery start crying when she heard it in demo form. McCreery asserted that “we have a good mixture” and admitted that he likes to make his fans laugh and then make them cry with his songs.
