What's the story?
"OUT OF SUMMERTIME" is the second wholesome song from Scotty McCreedy, the velvet-toned country crooner who took the 2011 American Idol crown. Just like his debut single, "I Love You This Big," this second track is a wholesome, sweet ode to young love that contains no questionable adult content or language. Though the song's resolution is somewhat bittersweet -- McCreedy parts with the object of his affection as both grow older and move on with their lives -- it's a perfectly acceptable choice for all of the Idol champ's young fans.
Is it any good?
McCreedy's great pipes once again shine through on this tune, backed by the slide guitar and country arrangements that are the hallmarks of the country sound. Though the song likely won't go down in the record books, it's sure to get plenty of airplay on the country radio waves.
