Scotty McCreery Reveals ‘I Love You This Big’ Video Debut Date and Album Pre-Order
Scotty McCreery made a big announcement via Twitter yesterday, tweeting: "The Love You This Big video will premiere on CMT August 9th. Y'all be sure to tune in." That's his debut music video, one fans of the 'American Idol' winner's have been craving for months. As previously reported, the video will have a small-town feel, despite being filmed in Los Angeles.
GAC and CMT will both air the video early next Tuesday morning. Like Lauren Alaina, GAC has been following McCreery with cameras for a television special that will air this fall. They'll debut the video at 6:24AM ET, while CMT will air the video as part of a 15-minute special featuring behind-the-scenes footage. The singer raves about the location in a recent press release. “If you looked one way, you could see Dodger Stadium, and if you looked another way, you could see downtown L.A.," he says. “If I hadn’t told you that, you would think we would have shot that in North Carolina."
It's “a summertime barbecue, kinda like a community thing on the Fourth of July,” McCreery told 'Access Hollywood' last month. In a quick preview clip, one sees the singer and his band performing the song on a homemade, wooden stage in front of a small crowd of supporters. While the lyrics of the song seem to refer to a loved one, it could be the small town of Garner, N.C. that McCreery is thinking about when he sings this song.
Fans can now pre-order an exclusive album package that includes the new album, a personalized poster, an 8x10 photo and a download of 'I Love You This Big.' Go to his official website for more details, as well as to sign up for updates about the project. “For this first album, we are definitely going to let the fans know first about all of the details coming out,” McCreery says. “We want them to know just what’s happening with the album and when it’s coming out because they’re the ones who are going to buy the music and they’re the ones who have been following me through this 'Idol' journey."
Tonight McCreery returns to Milwaukee, the city he auditioned for 'American Idol' in one year ago. This weekend the American Idols Live Tour will also stop in Rosemont, Ill. and Detroit, Mich.
