Over the past weeks, McCreery has made a name for himself as quite the showman, pulling influence from arena star Garth Brooks. The singer first picked up a guitar at the age of 10 and often impersonated Elvis Presley.
His performance of 'Gone' by Montgomery Gentry showed off the Carolinian's vocal range from Southern baritone to country-fried tenor. McCreery also hit all the right notes on his first single 'I Love You This Big,' a classic-sounding country tune, prompting Idol judge Jennifer Lopez to say McCreery was a "beautiful storyteller" and he facilitates the song with his heartfelt emotion.
Now McCreery is offering fans an exclusive first listen of his new single, 'I Love You This Big,' exclusively through AOL Music.

Alaina sings in the vain of Carrie Underwood and Faith Hill, but her stage presence and vocal prowess is undeniable, as the teen can hit the highest notes with grace and precision. When she sang her proposed future single 'Like My Mother Does,' she inspired judge Steven Tyler to say "The first time I saw you I thought you were my American Idol, and now I think America will find it to be true."
All eyes are now on McCreery and we're excited to see where the road will take him. Until next season -- Seacrest out!
