CD REVIEW: Scotty McCreeryComment on this story
See You Tonight
Beam me up, Scotty.
FORGET Taylor Swift, there’s a new country singer in town.
In 2011 he won the 10th season of American Idol, but the 20-year-old was in no rush to get an album out.
Now that See You Tonight is ready, you’d swear the guy has been singing for twice as long as he’s been alive. The album is so good it would easily make Kenny Rogers and Don Williams envious.
See You Tonight is a collection of sing-along tracks about young love that will most probably remind you of your first time in love.
After Midnight pops out as a must-listen gem and talks about things guys think about when they get a chance to be with women in the dark.
While things are a bit up-tempo in general, Forget To Forget You is a cheesy slow jam that meanders between country music and soft rock. It’s something Rod Stewart or Bryan Adams would nod their heads to.
The album’s title track, See You Tonight, deserves its position as a standout song as it almost makes booty calls something to be proud of. Again, McCreery bellows some catchy lines about how he has to see her that evening.
All in all, this offering has been made in a way that it will also accommodate you if you are not a Dolly Parton fan as McCreery fuses some swag in there. – Munya Vomo
