Scotty McCreery returned to the stage of 'The Tonight Show With Jay Leno' last night, performing his latest and greatest single, 'The Trouble With Girls.' Looking every bit the country superstar with his brown leather jacket, jeans and boots, McCreery is even more at ease in the spotlight as he continues to evolve and perform past the 'American Idol' stage and grow into a performer in his own right.

Notice: He's wearing a cross, too. McCreery never shies away from displaying his Christian faith. His star continues to ascend, while his boots remain planted firmly on the ground.

The quiet ballad translated well on the small screen, especially since Scotty injects the song with a dose of honest emotion! There's no better promotional vehicle for a new album than a late night TV appearance, and with 'Clear as Day' finally dropping this week, it was perfect timing for McCreery to bring his big voice and his new single to Jay Leno's show.

McCreery paid a visit to 'The Tonight Show' earlier this summer to perform 'I Love You This Big.' It feels like forever ago, doesn't it? Scotty McCreery really has embedded himself into the country music scene in 2011.
