EDITORS’ NOTES

On his sophomore album, Scotty McCreery finds his comfort level in the modern country market with an engaging set of tunes that adds a touch of rascality to his Nice Guy vibe. The American Idol alumnus moves away from the old-fashioned innocence of his 2011 hit “Clear as Day” toward something a little more ornery here. Tracks like “Now” (a party-hearty anthem), “Buzzin’” (a celebration of young love and minor vices), and “Blue Jean Baby” (an upbeat appreciation of the feminine form) let McCreery season his sweetness with down-home grit. See You Tonight’s title track does a particularly good job at kicking his romantic intensity level up a notch. “I Don’t Wanna Be Your Friend” likewise makes it clear that the singer has more on his mind than hand-holding and quiet chats. Also included are milder but no less catchy numbers, like the bittersweet “Feel Good Summer Song” and the nostalgic “Carolina Moon.” “Something More”—a reaffirmation of motherhood, patriotism, and music—proves that McCreery remains a Southern gentleman at heart.
