Aspiring country music singers Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina have found a home to release their upcoming album. Graduating from "American Idol" season 10 as a winner and runner-up respectively, they have inked a record deal with the same label, Mercury Nashville.
The news was made public by the recording company by taking a full-page ad on today's issue of Billboard Country Update. "Mercury Nashville Welcomes Scotty and Lauren to the Family," they proudly announced their new recording artists.
Scotty and Lauren have dropped their country debut single soon after the "Idol" finale. Scotty released "I Love You This Big", while Lauren offered "Like My Mother Does". The former scored the highest chart debut for a new artist on Billboard Hot Country Songs chart by landing at No. 32. The latter, meanwhile, climbed to No. 49 with 124,000 downloads.
