Our American Idol country kids Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina are not in a relationship

American Idol host Ryan Seacrest is more than happy to provoke it and it always seems to be the elephant in the room. But both Scotty & Lauren are happy to dispel all rumors that they are not having a relationship. Meredith Clayton, Scotty McCreery’s choir director at Garner High School in his hometown of Garner, N.C., visited her longtime student in Hollywood last week and just couldn’t help but ask if there was something special going on between him and Alaina.

But, according to Clayton, girls just aren’t at the top of the ‘Idol’ star’s priority list right now — even if McCreery and Alaina do have great chemistry when performing together.
