The big news that ‘American Idol’ winner and runner-up Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina were counting down on their websites yesterday turned out to be the details of their debut albums.

As our friends at Taste of Country reported, fans who signed up for the teen performers’ email lists received notice that McCreery’s debut ‘Clear as Day’ will arrive on Oct. 4. Just one week later, on Oct. 11, Alaina’s ‘Wildflower’ will see its release.

“‘Clear as Day’ is definitely country and it’s definitely me,” McCreery said in the email. “It has some old country influences and elements, but it also has a contemporary feel with fun up-tempo songs. It’s a good mixture. You can hear some of the influences that I grew up with, like Hank Williams, Conway Twitty and Merle Haggard, but it still has a contemporary twist and feel that keeps it up to date.”

Alaina said her album title is a good self-description. “Wildflowers are sweet, but then they have a little bit of spunk to them,” she said. “I like to have a lot of fun and I’m really sassy, so I feel like a wildflower would be a good description of who I am as a person.” Alaina added that her album includes both ballads and up-tempo songs, and that one track will be called ‘She’s a Wildflower.’

Both singers have now released videos to go with their successful debut singles. McCreery’s ‘I Love You This Big‘ has a small-town setting, while Alaina’s ‘Like My Mother Does‘ is based around family and features home movie clips.
