Scotty McCreery returns to the show that made him famous this Thursday night.  The reigning American Idol champ is set to perform his new single, “Water Tower Town,” on this week’s results show.

In addition to offering words of advice and encouragement to this season’s contestants, Scotty is excited to share the new song, which reminds him of his North Carolina hometown.

“It reminds me of Garner, which has a big water tower right across from the baseball fields where I grew up playing ball,” Scotty explains.  He also identifies with the lines in the song about Friday night football and sweet tea too.

American Idol airs Thursday night at 8 p.m. Eastern time on Fox.

Scotty is also up for New Artist of the Year at this Sunday night’s ACM Awards on CBS.  He’ll perform “Water Tower Town” during that broadcast too.
