American Idol Season 10 champ, Scotty McCreery, didn’t just win American Idol but also broke the record that ‘American Idol is losing its charm and could no longer produce stars’. Guess again because this 18 year old Country crooner from Garner, NC changes everything. Aside from the same news you’ve read (ie: I Love You This Big topping the charts, etc), here’s the recent one that is storming the indu$try nowadays: Scotty McCreery’s debut album “Clear As Day” now a Certified Platinum! Yup, American Idol is very proud of course! Imagine this, Scotty McCreery sold 1 million copies of Clear As Day in just 3 months after its release! Amazing! Billboard Magazine named Scotty McCreery as the “#1 Top New Country Artists for 2011 and McCreery also won the “New Artist of the Year” at the American Country Awards last December 2011.
Scotty couldn’t thank more! Here’s what the lucky young guy has to say: “It means the world to me. It’s one of the highest honors you can get with your album and it’s a huge testament to the loyalty of country music fans and how great they have been to me this year. 2011 was absolutely an incredible, life-changing year for me. I want to say a huge thanks to the fans for this.”
More thankful words coming from Scotty McCreery: “Never in a million years did I dream that the album would go platinum in three months. Never in a million years did I dream that the album would go platinum. It’s wild! It’s going to take me a few months or years to really wrap my head around it.”
Also, don’t forget that Scotty McCreery will be touring with Brad Paisley this Thursday! Tour starts at Grand Rapids, Mich. so don’t miss any schedule if they are coming in your area.
