Scotty McCreery'American Idol' fans, make sure to pencil in a very important event on Oct. 4: AOL TV sister site The Boot reports that's the day 'American Idol' winner Scotty McCreery will release his debut album, 'Clear as Day.'

Though a track list has not yet been revealed, we do know that Scotty's breakout hit, 'I Love You This Big,' will be on the album. The tune made Billboard history earlier this year, leaving the North Carolina native pleasantly shocked.

"That's very humbling for me," he told The Boot. "Just a week after 'Idol,' I heard about it in an interview and I was taken aback. I'm looking forward to what else I can do, if I can work my tail off to get there! If I can break another record, we'll see, but I've gotta just work, work work."

Claiming producer credits on 'Clear as Day' is Mark Bright, who was also at the helm of albums by a who's who list of country superstars including Carrie Underwood and Rascal Flatts. Similarly big names can be found on the songwriting credits of Scotty's CD. "We've got songs on it from some of the best songwriters in country music," says the singer. "I'm so fortunate to have so many talented people contributing to my first album."

"It's a good mixture. You can hear some of the influences that I grew up with, like Hank Williams, Conway Twitty... but it still has a contemporary twist and feel that keeps it up to date. "I chose these songs because they mean a lot to me, but I think everybody can relate to these kinds of songs," Scotty continues...
