Album: See You Tonight (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • McCreery opens his See You Tonight album with this rocking party tune, which finds him yelling out for a good time. The 2011 American Idol winner penned the song with LA/Nashville songwriter Busbee and the record's producer, Frank Rogers. It was one of five tracks on the set that the North Carolina native co-wrote, unlike Clear as Day, which didn't include any of his self-penned tunes. Scotty admitted to Billboard magazine being somewhat nervous about featuring some of his original songwriting for the first time. "At first you're a little scared to come out of your shoes and share some of your thoughts," he said. "You have to share those intimate thoughts to get a really good song."
