American Idol on FOX experts predicted this and it has happened just as they said it would – winner Scotty McCreery made a huge debut on the charts last week and this week his new single swept into the #1 spot.

American Idol’s season ten winner Scotty McCreery made his debut last week on the Country charts scoring the number 32 spot, and this week he has hit number one as his single “I Love You This Big” debuted at #1 on Country Digital Songs this week with 171,000 copies of his single downloaded. This marks the 300th number one song for the show and of course, Scotty’s first of probably many more in the future!
