2011 American Idol winner Scotty McCreery joined RADIO.COM's Katie Neal for an exclusive FANDEMIC Instagram Live, answering fan questions from around the world and letting us all in on his time while social distancing, and what he's got cooking as far as future music.
"We're good," Scotty says of his friends and family while sipping on a Red Bull and hoping that his mom doesn't call in during the interview (We ALL forget to turn on 'Do Not Disturb' mode, even Scotty).
"We're just tackling projects. We did a little road trip from Carolina to Nashville last week, and I did some recording... still kind of making some headway on the music so it's been alright for sure."
Not all projects for Scotty are musical these days. He's been whittling away steadily at his wife Gabi's "Honey-Do" list, but says he can always find something he missed. "As soon as you think you're done, you're like 'oh wait a second. I still got this to do, or that.'"
After answering questions from fans about family road-tripping, his dog Moose, and more, he explained the new album project is still unnamed as he waits to see the entire story being told - and there's still no official release date.
"I'm old school," he says. "I'm still the full album guy. Some folks are very single-minded now but I just love the full story of an album. So with that, we'll probably drop a few tunes before the whole thing comes out. You kind of want to put out the lead single and let it rise and hopefully, lord willing, get up close to the top and then you release it.
"So, it'll be a little while before the full thing is out... and I might just leak one here and there while I'm bored during quarantine."
While you're still feelin' the McCreery vibe,, here's Scotty talking about some of his most memorable career moments, what fictional character he relates to most, and -- since it's almost Memorial Day -- here's Scotty and more with some patriotic messages to take with you into the long weekend.
