 Scotty McCreery Biography

Since becoming American Idol's youngest male winner in 2011, as well as the show's first country male winner, Garner, NC native Scotty McCreery quickly emerged as country music's most successful new artist.

McCreery's first studio album, Clear As Day, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 and Top Country Albums charts, making him the youngest man in history to open at the top of the all-genre chart with a debut release. It also garnered the highest sales of any country solo album released last year, held the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart for six weeks and earned Platinum status in just thirteen weeks.

Scotty won New Artist of the Year at both the 2011 American Country Awards and the 2012 Academy of Country Music Awards. He also won the USA Weekend Breakthrough Video of the Year for "The Trouble With Girls" at the 2012 CMT Music Awards. McCreery was ranked No. 1 on Billboard's list of Top New Country Artists for 2011 also earned the No. 4 spot on Billboard's 2012 List of the Top 21 Under 21. Scotty spent most of 2012 opening for Brad Paisley's Virtual Reality Tour 2012.

McCreery released a holiday album, Christmas With Scotty McCreery, which debuted at No.1 on the Billboard Top Seasonal Albums chart and became one of the season’s top holiday albums. Scotty has continued to perform and record while pursuing an undergraduate degree at N.C. State University.

You’d never know it from his unfailingly polite, unflappable demeanor, but the rise of young Scotty McCreery has been blindingly rapid. Following a youth spent singing in church in the Raleigh satellite community of Garner, N.C., he led a praise-and-worship group called Audience of One. More significantly, he sang with an advanced high-school chorale group called Die Meistersingers. It required him to sight-read music, perform classical pieces and compete with similar groups on a national level.?

He had no idea then that those first performances were paving the way for a meteoric rise in country music. He recently made his first entry into the Guinness World Records Book for being the youngest male to enter the U.S. album charts at No. 1. In 2011, his debut album, Clear As Day, premiered atop the all-genre Billboard 200 albums chart and was certified platinum for sales of 1 million copies in just three months.

The album garnered the highest sales of any country solo album released that year and held the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart for six weeks. His first two singles were certified gold and he was named New Artist of the Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards and the American Country Awards.

His other passion was baseball, and McCreery pitched for his high-school team while he pursued music. He also worked briefly in an auto-mechanic shop and for a longer stint as a grocery cashier throughout his junior year in high school. Then came the American Idol audition in Milwaukee 2010, where he impressed the judges by singing “Your Man.”

In May 2011, he won the show at age 17, becoming the show’s first country male winner and its youngest male winner in any genre. “I Love You This Big” was instantly issued as his debut single. On June 10, he staged his debut at the Grand Ole Opry. From July 6 to the end of September 2011, McCreery toured in the “American Idols Live!” show. In between tour stops he worked on his album Clear as Day with producer Mark Bright.

The album came out in October as he turned 18, and “I Love You This Big” became a gold record. By the end of the year, Clear as Day was certified gold, as was its second single, “The Trouble with Girls.” In December, Scotty McCreery was named Billboard magazine’s No.1 new country artist of the year and won New Artist of the Year at the fan-voted American Country Awards.

Just three months after its release, Clear as Day was certified platinum in January 2012, and McCreery began touring with country stars Brad Paisley and The Band Perry. He took school work for his senior year in high school with him, helped by his mother, a former teacher. That spring, he introduced his third single. “Water Tower Town,” won the Academy of Country Music’s New Artist of the Year trophy and earned a Breakthrough Video honor at the CMT Awards.

Immediately after his performance on the CMT telecast, he flew home to North Carolina to graduate the next morning with distinguished honors from Garner Magnet High School. During the summer, he worked on Christmas with Scotty McCreery, enrolled in the North Carolina State and moved into his first apartment, within walking distance of the school’s Raleigh campus.
