When asked by reporters if her friendship with Scotty McCreery has turned into something romantic, Lauren Alaina plays coy. However, Scotty’s response set us straight. Watch their hilarious interactions!

Since we first saw Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina hit it off during Hollywood Week on American Idol, we thought they’d make an adorable couple. Then, when Scotty was declared winner during the finale May 25, Lauren rushed to his side and gave him a huge smooch! So did our dream come true? Are Scotty and Lauren the picture perfect Idol couple?

Well, if there’s one thing Lauren is good at, it’s teasing Scotty — especially when it comes to their relationship.

“They asked if we were dating and I told them to ask you!” Lauren, 16, said to Scotty, 17, as they both walked the press line after the show.

After he laughed off her comment, Lauren turned to us and said, “I mean, I’ll never tell. Secret’s safe with me!”

That said, Scotty — who’s mature beyond his years — doesn’t seem to take her too seriously and certainly isn’t trying to perpetuate any dating rumors.

“Everybody keeps asking me about the smooch. She told me she was gonna do that before the show. She’s a sweetheart,” the country crooner responded.

Later in the press room, Scotty laughed about Lauren’s kiss again, saying, “She’s a character, isn’t she? We’re really close friends…I don’t know about the dating part. She’s just being funny.”

Even though Scotty’s not playing into a relationship, we’d love for these two to wind up together. Their chemistry is great and they’re already best friends — plus they’re attractive. Scotty and Lauren would be like a young Faith Hill and Tim McGraw.

After watching these videos do YOU think Scotty and Lauren like each other? Sound off below!
