Out of Summertime

Album: Clear As Day (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This Jonathan Singleton and Tim Nichols penned song was one of the three potential singles McCreery had to choose from for his post-American Idol debut single. It eventually lost out to "I Love You This Big."
  • Said Scotty of the song in publicity materials: "It's about a summertime fair and it's a teenage love kind of thing. They could have had something, but they ran out of summertime. It's almost like the movie Grease, with Danny and Sandy."
