Scotty McCreery, the country cutie was crowned American Idol last week and what every fan wants to know is WHO IS HIS GIRLFRIEND? The rumor is that he’s dating  runner up Lauren Alaina? The two teens seem like a country match made in heaven, are they just friends or has their American Idol crush blossomed into love?

In a new Access Hollywood interview, Scotty McCreery reveals he’s never had a girlfriend and is overwhelmed by the female fan response. I guess it’s safe to say, Scotty and Lauren are still wearing their purity rings.

Scotty McCreery, born under the astrology star sign of Libra, he’s quite the charmer. Scotty dished all the details on his love life; “You know, it’s wild for me to think about [it] ‘cause it wasn’t like that before the show,” Scotty told Billy of the increased attention from girls.

“What was it like before the show?” Billy Bush asked. “Man, I’ve been single for about four years now, so I mean, it’s just… I’m just playing the field,” Scotty said. “Never really had like, a girlfriend?” Billy Bush asked. “Well, I had one in middle school for about a year,” Scotty McCreery answered. American Idol must love that, Scotty is 100% wholesome.

Scotty says he’s still the down to earth guy he always was. “I’m so busy, but I’m not looking for a girlfriend to like me because I’m ‘Scotty McCreery the American Idol,’” he said. “I’m looking for one to just like me for being Scotty. I mean, I left Garner, North Carolina, as Scotty and I’m coming back as Scotty. I haven’t changed one bit.”

What does the future hold for Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina in the love department? Astrochicks sees the couple as a young Garth Brook and Trisha Yearwood. Scotty a Libra, makes an interesting match for Lauren a sassy Scorpio girl. There’s definitely an attraction but I think Scotty will become overwhelmed by all the female attention. He’s still young and needs to sow his wild oats.

For Lauren Alaina, she’s a deeply sensitive and passionate girl. Family comes first and I think she has a serious crush on Scotty McCreery. Who wouldn’t? It might be safer to keep the relationship in the friend zone for now. Scotty and Lauren share a deep personal bond, one they will always cherish. The future may bring dating and romance for two, but for now I see them completely focused on their career. Give it another year and we might see these two as boyfriend and girlfriend. Stay tuned.
