It has been quite a year for Scotty McCreery! The country music star signed with a new record label (Triple Tigers Records/ Sony Music Entertainment), got engaged to his high school sweetheart, and just finished his new album due out in the Spring.

The 24-year-old's next project follows the release of his 2013 album, See You Tonight. McCreery revealed to Billboard that it was a breath of fresh air working on his upcoming album with his new label and that he wrote or co-wrote each one of the new tracks.

McCreery has come a long way since winning the tenth season of American Idol in 2011. With the singing competition returning on March 11, his only advice to the contestants is to "take a deep breath."

We sat down with McCreery as part of our Red Carpet Countdown live from Nashville to discuss his proposal to Gabi Dugal and the marriage advice he's received so far. The "Five More Minutes" singer also expressed how important country music is for everyone to heal, especially during the past few months.
