Billboard Hot 200, Scotty McCreery Makes History with Number One Debut

Filed under: Staff |

Scotty McCreery is the first American Idol winner to reach the top of the Billboard Hot 200 chart with a debut album since Kelly Clarkson in 2003 with “Thankful”.  He is the first country artist with a Number One debut.  “Clear as Day” sold 197,000 copies during its first week.  He was just crowned American Idol for season ten last May.

He is also the youngest male artist, just having turned 18 at the beginning of October, to bow at the Number One place with his first album.  Omarion was the youngest to do so in 2005 with his album “O”, at the age of 20.

His smooth vocals and mature tone at the age of 18 landed him rising popularity with his first single, “I Love you This Big”.  You can hear this song, and many more smashing hits on 103.3 The Country Extreme.  Keep checking back to for more country artists updates.  Another article on “Clear as Day” can be found by clicking here.
