American Idol on FOX‘s season ten winner, Scotty McCreery recently made history with his debut album, just as he is getting ready to tackle the National Anthem next week. Scotty McCreery took some time out of his crazy schedule to share his feelings on both his album’s good fortune, as well as his upcoming World Series performance.
American Idol’s season ten winner, Scotty McCreery’s “Clear As Day” recently hit the number one spot on the charts with nearly 200k copies deeming him the first country act to debut at No. 1 with a debut album – could he be the next Carrie Underwood? Scotty McCreery said of his album: “My hopes were just to go out there and have fun and let people know that the album was out there. Everybody hopes for the number one, but you never really expect it. To see it up there is pretty incredible.” Whether or not he will have a career as great as Carrie Underwood’s is yet to be known, but Scotty does share one milestone with Carrie already – “Clear As Day” is the first debut by a new country artist to top 100,000 in first-week sales since Carrie Underwood did in 2005.
Scotty McCreery has other exciting events coming up as well, as the crooner is about to take on the National Anthem on October 19, the first day of The World Series. We all know that Scotty is a huge baseball fan, but what does he think about singing at The World Series? Scotty McCreery is looking forward to it as he recently said: “This is absolutely incredible for me. I have had two loves in life – music and baseball. The World Series is the biggest event in baseball, so to be there and be able to sing the National Anthem is like putting my two greatest loves together. I am looking forward to seeing which two teams will be playing.”
