Scotty on "The Trouble With Girls". "Right off the bat when I heard it, I told my mom when we were listening to the demo,'This is the kind of song when you are in the kitchen doing dishes that makes you stop what you are doing and listen to it. 'It struck a chord with me, and I knew it was something I wanted to put on the album.

It would definitely be being able to tour and pump up crowds across the country. I love to have my audience dance and jump up and down while I perform. I will let them know I want them to get up as soon as I get on stage.
What are the two things that that you have to have while you are touring?
My mom!!! My mom and sweet tea! There are not a lot of places that we tour that don’t have sweet tea so I have to make it myself while I am on tour.
If you could tour with any two artists who would they be?
I would absolutely love to tour with Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood. That would be incredible!
Who has been the most exciting celebrity that you have met? I see that Justin Bieber follows you on Twitter.
I know, I saw that two or three days ago and I thought how sweet is that [Lauren pumps her fist]. I have met a lot of great people since I have been on American idol. One of my favorites has probably been Keith Urban. He came up to me, knew my name right away and I was blow away.
What song are you most excited about singing tonight?
I would have to say my Carrie Underwood cover. I love singing her songs.
We know you and Scotty are really close, are you and the rest of the idols the same way?Yes we are all really close. To be honest that guy over there [Points at Paul McDonald] are really close. I think of him like another big brother and love his Fiancé.
You seem to me very down to earth, I have seen interviews where you have said “Everything happens for a reason.” Is this your approach on life or is this something you have been taught by your family.
Well, it is something that I have been raised with. Everyone asks me about coming into second place on Idol, but God has a reason for that. I just go out and trust in God because he has a plan. My family has been very supportive throughout this and has taught me some great qualities.
Here is a question from one of our Facebook Fans (Tiffany Braswell)- “Have you become more confident that you are a great singer now that you are on the road? I can’t wait for the show!”
I started becoming very confident in myself around the top 4 on the show. At first I started to read some of the negative things that I shouldn’t have and as a teenager you don’t want to hear all that kind of stuff. I am very confident now and I am just being myself.
Here is a question from another Facebook Fan (Karen Pirkle)- “Where do you see yourself on down the road?”
I have a cd coming out in mid September-October ish… somewhere during then. Hopefully my CD will do really well and I can tour with Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood!!

This week in Nashville is the CMA Music Fest, where fans gather and see their favorite artists to get autographs and catch concerts.
Coming off American Idol Scotty and Lauren weren't sure if they would be welcomed with open arms.
"The one thing I worried about, coming to this, was how would Nashville accept me and Lauren, the Idol kids,the youngsters who didn't play the honky tonks growing up? But so far they've welcomed us with open arms"says Scotty.
Scotty goes on to say that it's time for him and Lauren to go and establish themselves as separate artists.
"It was a country finale, so it was totally fitting that we come here for Fan Fest together. But definitely, after this,it's time for both of us to go...not our separate ways,but go and establish ourselves as separate artists, and not be the Idol kids."
And if there are any of us out there that think they are a couple well...Scotty has news for us. :(
"If you read comment boards, you might think that two-thirds of America wants Scott and Lauren to be a couple and one-third doesn't, but that everybody believes they secretly are. Doesn't everyone always assume that of any homecoming royal couple? But they couldn't be more dismissive of that rumor (or hope, or fear, as the case may be).
"No, we're not," he affirmed. "We're more like the brother/sister kind of relationship where we're just really good friends and get along really well. But as far as the 'relationship' side of things, that's definitely a no."
Scotty and Lauren made their Opry debut last night!
Scotty performed his single "I Love You This Big" and George Strait's "Check Yes or No". Lauren sang "Blue" and "Like My Mother Does". The fans went wild as they both sang. Loud cheers. After Scotty's performance of "Check Yes or No" he said, "Thank y'all so much Grand Ole Opry" and WOW!"
Pete Fisher, General Manager of the Grand Ole Opry came out along with Lauren to Congratulate both of them and present them with framed prints to commemorate their special appearance at the Opry!

Danny Gokey gives Scotty and Lauren some advice telling the Boot that they need to ask themselves who they are away from the music and the screaming fans. Gokey also told The Boot that he really likes Scotty and knew he'd win because of his charm and that he is more attracted to Lauren's voice.
Danny goes on to say that they know what they want to accomplish. "They have have a better understanding of what they want to accomplish than I did going into 'Idol'."
