Scotty McCreery Is The First American Idol Winner To Debut #1 Album Since 2003
Scotty McCreery, last season’s American Idol winner, has a great measure of success on his hands. He has won over the hearts of America more than any American Idol singer has in the last 8 years. Not since Kelly Clarkson and Ruben Studdard in 2003 has a debut album from the Idol champ been the best selling album. Congrats Scotty! His new album “Clear As Day” entered at #1 in the Billboard 200.
What about Carrie Underwood? That’s the first thing I thought because in my opinion she is the most successful American Idol alumni. She debuted at number 2 after winning American Idol with her album “Some Hearts.”
Does Scotty have the star power and chops to make a long career? Only time will tell!
