Scotty McCreery 10 Hottest New Music Acts of 2011



What would a year in music industry be if there weren't any new acts adding sprinkle to the competition? Sure, the battle among the already-established artists would be interesting enough for music fans and critics alike to sit and watch since it gets tougher every year, but the addition of the newbies would undoubtedly make the game even more dynamics than it has already had. In honor of those budding artists, AceShowbiz compile 10 out of the many based on their achievements in the past twelve months.

2011 has its fair share of new music acts. The likes of J. Cole, Foster the People, Scotty McCreery, Jessie J and The band Perry are picked because they have proved themselves in their own unique ways. Those rising stars stole attention and stood out among the rest either by busting the charts, making history with their record-breaking music, or going viral with their genre-bending sound. If they keep up the good work, they won't be just one hit wonder and will continue to shine in the years to come.

Scotty McCreery is the new American sweetheart. He becomes a quick favorite due to his boyish look and deep voice combined with his passionate delivery which he showcased throughout the tenth season of the "American Idol". The North Carolina native overshadowed the others and won a record-breaking 122.4 million votes from household across the country. At the age of 17, he became the youngest male contestant to ever win the first place in the nine-year history of the FOX show.

The real competition, though, was out there, and Scotty didn't fail. He busted the chart with his debut single "I Love you This Big", soaring into the Top 25 after only three weeks of the release and having the highest chart debut for a new artist on Billboard Country Songs chart in the SoundScan era. He nicely sealed his record-breaking achievement by bowing at No. 1 on Billboard Hot 200 with his first album "Clear as Day", making him the first country act to top the chart at first try.

  20. Go to The USA Today site and vote for best music of 2011. Google "Which idol released the best album of 2011" without the quotation marks. We need all of Scotty's fans voting because he is trailing behind James Durbin and David Cook.
