NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Two years ago, country singer Scotty McCreery found out he lost his record deal with Mercury/Interscope while shooting an episode for "American Idol," the show he won in 2011. He had come back to mentor new contestants on the show, which was then on Fox, but his own career was at a precipice.
"I was trying to put on a happy face while I was filming," the 24-year-old singer with the baritone voice said. "That was a rough week."
