Scotty McCreery has opened up about his plans for the future and about the subject matter he hopes to tackle on his second album. The 18-year-old American Idol champ says that though he'll go to college in the fall, he's committed to a music career.
"This is what I want to do for the rest of my life," McCreery tells Billboard. "It's getting to be . . . I don't want to say a job, but it's getting to be like that. I'm taking it seriously. But I love it."
He adds, "I love entertaining. If I wasn't on (Idol) I would've tried to head to Nashville and make it the traditional way."
As far as his new material goes, McCreery says that he plans to push away from doing sad country ballads:
"I don't want to get caught up in the sappy love songs; those are important, but I want them to get a feel for who I am as an artist and sing about real things in life," he explains.
