Scotty McCreery continues to preview tracks from his upcoming sophomore project with ‘Rock This Night,’ yet another new song he’s been sampling in his live performances lately, much to the delight of McCreerians everywhere.

If McCreery is hoping to introduce his new album to country radio with a sexy mid-tempo track, than ‘Rock This Night’ is an excellent candidate. Despite his status a Platinum-selling country music superstar, the North Carolina native has yet to hit his stride at radio — a notion McCreery understands going into his new album.

“You know, in the last year I’ve won awards, I’ve had sold out shows across the country, but I haven’t had that big radio hit yet,” the ‘American Idol’ told Taste of Country. “So that’s my mission right now. So I’ve got to go out there and try to find it.”

If ‘Rock This Night’ isn’t chosen as his next single, the singer has superb choices with ‘Suntan’ and ‘See You Tonight,’ both of which were also previewed live recently. ‘See You Tonight’ is McCreery’s only co-write of the bunch, but the former ‘American Idol’ winner hopes to show off his ever-evolving writing talents soon.

“Some of the guys from Nashville will follow us on the road so in our spare time we can write, and [I’ll also] find a few days for me to go to Nashville [to write] as well, so I’m excited,” the student by day, singer by night says. “It will be the first time for me to have a cut of mine on the album.”

McCreery’s forthcoming studio album is the follow up to his 2010 ‘Clear as Day’ debut, which produced the Top 15 song, ‘I Love You This Big.’ The North Carolina State University coed is currently criss-crossing the country on his Weekend Roadtrip 2013 Tour — his first headlining outing.
