Much of Scotty McCreery's appeal on American Idol relied on his old-fashioned charm, how he seemed like a nice, everyday guy who just happened to be a deep-voiced crooner of classic country. Of course, in the early days of the 21st century, old-fashioned country doesn't sell the way it used to. McCreery's 2011 debut Clear as Day performed well right out of the gate -- it debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 and the country charts, and his post-coronation single "I Love You This Big" wound up charting higher on the Hot 100 than it did on the country charts, all on its way to a platinum certification -- but if his 2013 sequel See You Tonight is any indication, there clearly was some worry in Scotty's camp that he couldn't perform the same trick twice.

The 2011 debut from American Idol champ Scotty McCreery was a bumpy pickup-truck ride through generic country tropes, but two years later, the baritone has cranked out brighter tunes about a topic more befitting a 19-year-old star: getting some. The title track — one of five co-written by McCreery — describes a cheery booty call, and on "Blue Jean Baby," he can't peel his eyes off a girl in a pair of Levi's "showin' off a little skin." But amid the tailgates and stolen kisses, McCreery drops "Something More," a midtempo tear-jerker that'll strike a chord on either side of the Mason-Dixon. .

Los Angeles Times
Their review was generally favourable

In 2011, Scotty McCreery was fresh off a win on "American Idol" and eager to ingratiate himself with the moms and daughters who presumably propelled him to victory. The result, as heard on "Clear as Day," was a comically innocent vision of teenage courtship in America: "We shared a Coca-Cola," he sang, "Sittin' on a log. " Two years later, McCreery, now 20, is a bona-fide country star, which means freedom — or enough of it anyway to choose one constituency or the other.
