American Idol News: Jason Castro Welcomes A Daughter, Scotty McCreery To Cover Keith Urban Single On Album

August 29, 2011

Don’t you miss American Idol? I certainly do! I’m looking forward to the show returning, as well as having all three judges back – Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler. The next season is slated to return on Sunday, January 22nd, immediately following the NFL NFC title game. The show will go back to its regular schedule of Wednesday/Thursday during the rest of the season. January seems so far away, doesn’t it? What’s the latest on those American Idol alums?

Jason Castro

Jason Castro, the fourth place finisher from Season 7, and his wife Mandy welcomed a baby girl on Sunday. Jason posted a pic of himself with his new daughter on his website, What a proud Daddy! Oh my gosh, the little pink bundle of joy is absolutely gorgeous! Her name? Madeline Emilia. Aww, I love it! Okay, I’m a bit partial, because I have a little Maddie as well. This is the first child for Jason and Mandy, who married last year in January. When Jason found out he and Many were having a girl, he said on his website last April, “We just found out yesterday that it is going to be a girl! That makes me laugh … what am I going to do with a sweet little girl?! Probably just smile a lot … I cannot wait!!!” So sweet! Congratulations to the Castro family!

Scotty McCreery

Last season’s winner, Scotty McCreery, and the rest of the Top 11 will be wrapping up their Summer Tour in a few weeks. While on tour, the 17-year-old has also been busy recording his upcoming album, ‘Clear as Day’, which will drop October 4th. He revealed to that while all of the songs will be originals, there will be one cover, thanks to Keith Urban. He personally picked a song of his for McCreery to include on his debut album. Lucky guy, eh? McCreery added that Urban may play guitar on the piece as well, but with Keith currently on tour, that may prove to be difficult. One thing for sure, McCreery’s debut album will not be ‘poppy’. That’s one direction he did not want the album to go. Will you be purchasing ‘Clear as Day’ in October?

So there you have it folks, just a little American Idol update. We’ll see you next week!
