Last week the American Idol contestants sung to Elton John hits. And considering this is a soul blog, it may appear strange to mention that my second favourite performance featured a touch of country. In fact, the performance was “Country Comfort” by Scott McCreery. But my, he has one of those voices that stop you in your tracks.
Opposite to soul diva Jacob Lusk, Scott McCreery prefers to sing with an unbelievably deep voice when you take account of his age (17 years-old). I think it’s great American Idol now has some country on it again. I know he’ll have plenty of support. Here’s a video of his performance.
