Scotty McCreery fans can expect a little Christmas cheer from the Season 10 “American Idol” champ this year.

Though it’s sweltering in Nashville, McCreery has been getting his holiday spirit on and is recording a Christmas album.  Though his label, Mercury Nashville, has been mum on the subject, McCreery spilled the beans on Thursday when he tweeted a photo of himself wearing a Santa cap and wrote, “Well, it’s still 90 some degrees outside, but it’s Christmas in July here in the studio.”

Though the tweet has since come down, reported that singer/songwriter Nick Autry had tweeted that all the Christmas decorations to make McCreery feel festive in the studio were now stored in his office. Further proof!

Hitfix has confirmed with a source that the album is definitely coming. More details soon. Ho ho ho.
