After winning Season Ten of American Idol, Scotty quickly established himself as one of the hottest new stars in country music. His debut album, Clear as Day, was the best-selling solo album released by a country artist in 2011. He became the youngest man in history to have his first album debut atop the all-genre Billboard Top 200 albums chart. That album, known for songs like “I Love You This Big,” “The Trouble with Girls,” and “Water Tower Town” was certified platinum for sales of one million, and the first two singles from that album were both certified gold. In 2012, his holiday album, Christmas with Scotty, was certified gold.
In the last two years, McCreery has performed before President Barack Obama, sung the national anthem at the World Series, and performed in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. He was named Top New Artist by Billboard and won best new artist awards at the Academy of Country Music Awards, the American Country Awards, and the CMT Awards.
McCreery’s new album, See You Tonight, recently debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart, his second consecutive studio album to do so. See You Tonight remains in the country albums chart’s Top 10, and the title track’s video has returned to No. 1 on GAC’s Top 20 Country Countdown. More information can be found at ScottyMcCreery.com.
