The video—like most Idol videos that are shot while the kids are on tour—is pretty straightforward. It features the North Carolina teen singing his ballad on a park stage, while loving couples intertwine fingers and smile at each other in front of a firework-lit summer-night sky.
Although his crazy eyebrows have taken a break, Scotty performs “I Love You This Big” with all his other typical mannerisms (hand on his stomach, microphone cocked sideways, arms stretched wide), and those gestures look much more organic in this down-home picnic setting than they ever did on Idol’s pageant-ish stage.
Check out the video after the jump.
