American Idol Winner Scotty McCreery Debuts New Video “I Love You This Big”

 

We showed you the debut video for American Idol  runner-up Lauren Alaina's new video yesterday.  Today, we give you the debut video from the winner of American Idol, Scotty McCreery.  "I Love You This Big" is his newest and first video.

The video was shot by Shane Drake while Scotty was in rehearsals for the American Idol tour.  It was shot in Angels point, with Dodger stadium on one side and downtown L.A. on the other side. 

“We found this park that had a little country feel to it and it all worked out,” he says. “If I hadn’t told you that, you would think we would have shot that in North Carolina. The music video has a summertime barbecue feel, like a July Fourth party with fireworks and hot dogs and families.”

North Carolina in L.A.?  Hmm.  Scotty wants to drop the news first on his own site www.scottymccreery-official.com before other places like us so the fans who supported him on Idol can get the news first. 

Scotty is currently on tour with the AI tour through September and will be on Good Morning America this Friday.  We hope he doesn't have a nip slip like Nicki Minaj had last Friday on Good Morning America.  What? 

Check out "I Love You This Big" which is the fastest rising country song in the past 7 weeks.  It is the highest debut for a country artist since 1984.-Dr.FB

Shocker! Ellen Quits American Idol!!!!!!!

This was rumor as of yesterday as Ellen was under contract for 5 years and would have to quit if Nigel Lithgow, the producer of American Idol, who has returned to the show, was going to make changes to Idol.

So in a Tweet, Ellen said

 "Dim the lights...I've voted myself off American Idol."

It followed with this released statement:

A couple months ago, I let FOX and the "American Idol" producers know that this didn't feel like the right fit for me. I told them I wouldn't leave them in a bind and that I would hold off on doing anything until they were able to figure out where they wanted to take the panel next. It was a difficult decision to make, but my work schedule became more than I bargained for. I also realized this season that while I love discovering, supporting and nurturing young talent, it was hard for me to judge people and sometimes hurt their feelings. I loved the experience working on "Idol" and I am very grateful for the year I had. I am a huge fan of the show and will continue to be.
 
OK, did she REALLY quit Idol or was she forced out?  We hear Randy Jackson is next and Kira DioGuardi is gone already.
Nigel Lithgow will be replacing Simon Cowell and we hear Jessica Simpson will be announced as a judge along with Nigel on Monday.
What we do not know now is if they will have 3 judges or 4.
Chris Isaak has expressed interest in the gig but Harry Connick Jr. is passing. 
With Ellen gone and Simon gone, is Idol over for you?-Dr.FB
