While traveling around the country for theAmerican Idollive tour,Scott MacIntyretook some time out to discuss his future plans with E! News. He talks about working on his upcoming CD, and the offers he’s received since making it to the top 10. Keep reading for more details…
Are you able to work on your music for your upcoming CD on the road?
Not so much, but we have a few days off in Arizona, where I’m from, and I plan to get in the studio to work on it then. That’s what I miss about home the most: writing and recording my own music because I’m in the middle of producing the CD that will be coming out in the fall.
What is the record label situation for you?
We are under contract with 19 through Aug. 20, so I can’t sign anything until then. But I’ve received a lot of interest from, I can’t mention who, but some major labels and a lot of publisher interest. But I have to wait. There’s interest, but all it can be is talk. I’m putting myself in a position where once Aug. 20 hits, I will be ready and know who I’m signing with. I’m doing my best to make calls on the road and get stuff set up for when the time is right. If fans want to hear what I’m up to, I have some new music up on www.myspace.com/scottmacintyre.
Any other offers post-Idol?
I’ve been approached about writing a book. It’s a pretty exciting publisher. It would be an inspirational book about dealing with my visual impairment, and other challenges in my life, which I only get to talk about a little bit in interviews. I feel like a book would really let me say what I want to say to people in an uncut way. I’ve received thousands of emails from fans telling me how the little bit of my story they’ve seen on the show has made an impact on their life. A book can go into that deeper. But the book could also be a fun account of my journey through Idol, or it can be a regular autobiography.
