Scotty McCreery has said that he is still debating where to go for college.

The 'I Love You This Big' singer was asked whether he would move to Nashville during an appearance on NBC's Today this morning.

"There is a college back home in Raleigh which is 10 minutes from my house, but then there are a couple of schools in Nashville which we are looking at," he said.

"It would probably be easier to do this [music career] and be in college in Nashville but I don't know if I want to be away from home yet."

As for what he will study, he said: "I don't know if I will do music or not because I'm kind of in music class every day now."

The 18-year-old was also asked about his dating life, replying that he is currently single: "I'm a busy guy right now and trying to focus on the music. That will happen and take care of itself but I'm trying to lay low."

McCreery also reflected on how much his life has changed since winning the tenth season of American Idol in May, saying: "We were talking today that it was just a year ago we were packing for Hollywood Week.

"Just to make it past that, let alone be here... It seems like yesterday. I'm telling you, this has been the fastest year! It's been cool, though, and I've been enjoying every minute of it."

McCreery's appearance on Today coincided with the news that his debut album Clear As Day and first single 'I Love You This Big' have been officially certified as gold.

He will appear at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade tomorrow and has also been lined up to perform at the American Country Awards on December 5 and tour with Brad Paisley from January.
