Scotty McCreery – I Love You This Big | When a man loves a lady– nothing will change his mind

When I hear Scotty McCreery’s debut country single, the first thing that comes to mind has nothing to do with the song itself. The ‘American Idol’ live soundstage does not do this boy justice, as the studio version of ‘I Love You This Big’ shows that the 17-year-old finalist is far more mature than audiences have given him credit for.

The first few lines are genuine and heartfelt. ‘I know I’m still young / But I know how I feel / I may not have much experience / But I know when love is genuine,’ McCreery sings. Little is known about the singer’s love life in Garner, North Carolina, but it’s safe to say he’s opened his heart before, if only in that innocent way that high schoolers have mastered.

The biggest relief is that the song does not sound like something Josh Turner would record. “I love you this big / Eyes have never seen this big / No one’s ever dreamed this big / And I’ll spend the rest of my life / Explaining what words cannot describe, but I’ll try / I love you this big.” McCreery sings in the chorus. Sure, it’s a little goofy, but then again, he is a little goofy. It’s one of the reasons why America adores him.

A soft steel guitar wraps around McCreery’s vocals like a warm blanket, lending depth and credibility to this tender ballad. When the occasion calls for it, he hits the high notes, but wisely avoids the deep country growl that gave Jennifer Lopez goosebumps. There will be plenty of time later for that.

“I’ll love you to the moon and back / I love you all the time / Deeper than the ocean / And higher than the pines.” McCreery breezes through these more familiar lyrics before bridging the chorus for the final time. ‘I Love You This Big’ leaves room for development while still providing plenty to get “Scotty’s Hotties” excited.
