WATCH: This New Scotty McCreery Song Will Change His Career

Scotty McCreery has a world of talent, but the American Idol shadow has followed.

Because of contractual issues, he’s had to delay putting out new music, and has had to withhold songs. Well, he about to be set free, and able to finally release new music and an album under a new contract, no longer with Idol.

“We’re getting ready with new music,” said Scotty to Nash Country Daily. “I just signed on with new management and we’re close to getting new music out. The Idol contract is a really fun one to work out. We’re like one signature away from being free. A lot of the songs are already done, so we’re getting them back. We’re close. By January or February, we should have a new single out.”

His new song “Five More Minutes” is one that can take his career to a new level – see it below.
