American Idol winner Scotty McCreery may have just released a music video for his coronation song, “I Love You This Big,” but the deep-voiced country teen has already unveiled a second single.

McCreery debuted “The Trouble With Girls,” a lovesick ode to the entire female sex, from his debut album Clear As Day (out on October 4), this morning. You can stream the track below:

Lyrically, the song isn’t exactly groundbreaking. “The trouble with girls is they’re so dang pretty,” McCreery explains before mentioning another dozen country clichés. He loves the way girls bat their eyelashes, wear their tight jeans, and even “the way they ride in the middle of your truck.” (Can he even drive yet?) Those words aren’t going to win over any new country fans, but they probably won’t lose any current ones either.

Still, the song excels melodically. The hooky, melismatic chorus, which turns words like “smile” into pretty six-syllable phrases, gets stuck in your head pretty much instantly, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the tune thrived on country radio.

What do you think of “The Trouble With Girls?” Do you love it this big?
