Scotty McCreery burst onto the national music scene in 2011, quickly establishing himself as one of country music’s hottest new stars. Now just a few years later, the talented singer/songwriter has album sales approaching 3 million; earned both Platinum and Gold album certifications; debuted three consecutive albums at No. 1 on a Billboard chart; achieved one Gold and three Platinum-certified singles as well as two Top Ten hits; won ACM, BMI and CMT Awards; and authored his first book.

After winning Season Ten of “American Idol” and capturing the hearts of millions of television viewers across the globe, McCreery released his debut album, which became the best-selling solo album released by a country artist in 2011. Indeed, he became the youngest man and first country music artist in history to have his first album debut atop the all-genre Billboard Top 200 albums chart.
