Scotty McCreery Basks in "Country Comfort"

by at . Comments

Was there any doubt Scotty McCreery would take on "Country Comfort" last night?

As the young artist himself said, it's Elton John's only country single, and he's an aspiring country singer, after all.

Randy loves the performance, which includes a shout-out to Scotty's grandmother, but a similar dilemma faces McCreery that faces Thia Megia: will he need to mix up his song choices if he hopes to go all the way? Or is natural, impressive talent all one needs, even if such talent is only ever presented within the same genre?
