According to FOX, this week on American Idol: ”Nicki Minaj will take the stage and perform her megahit Starships and Season 10 IDOL winner and platinum-selling country artist Scotty McCreery will return to perform his newest single, Water Tower Town.”
Scotty McCreery is excited to return to the Idol stage, as Scotty recently told GAC: “That was my launching pad and what gave me my platform to do what I am doing now. I am looking forward to seeing some familiar faces and spending some one-on-one time with the contestants. I can’t wait to give them some advice and the ins-and-outs of the competition that I learned last season.”
Scotty McCreery’s new single Water Tower Town is all about his hometown of Garner, NC. Scotty went on to add of the single: “It reminds me of Garner, which has a big water tower right across from the baseball fields where I grew up playing ball. It has a lot of elements in there that remind me of Garner.” And while Scotty is returning to the stage this week, fans have been listening to him already this season, as the season 10 winner can be heard each week as the contestants say goodbye. Scotty McCreery is the voice heard singing Tim McGraw’s Please Remember Me as this year’s American Idol goodbye song.
