In case American Idol fans had forgotten, season 10 champion Scotty McCreery loves you this big. To prove it, the deep-voiced country crooner has released the music video for his debut single, appropriately titled "I Love You This Big." Watch it below!
While it lacks the over-the-top spectacle of, say, a Lady Gaga or Katy Perry video and (sorry, ladies) doesn't feature Scotty leading a bevy of scantily clad men and women in a choreographed dance, there is an undeniably appealing sweetness to "I Love You This Big." The video features 17-year-old Scotty belting out the song in a crowded park on a beautiful day, as everyone around smiles, waves, holds hands, braids hair and generally basks in the glow of the love that is all around.
It's also good to see that young McCreery hasn't let fame change him: He still rocks a big cross necklace and uses those signature mannersims -- head cocked to the side, eyes squinting, precarious grip on the microphone, arms open wide for the song's refrain -- that made him an Idol favorite.
With "I Love You This Big" sitting at No. 18 on the Billboard country music charts, there's little doubt that fans will love Scotty's new video. The only question is: How big?
