Scotty McCreery CMT News: HOT DISH

Scotty McCreery Becomes Golden Boy Have you heard the news? Scotty McCreery's debut album, Clear as Day is certified gold for shipments of 500,000 copies. The album parked itself at No. 1 and has remained there for almost the nine weeks it's been for sale.
"It's huge!" Scotty says. "Every artist dreams of a gold album. This is incredible. I want to thank the fans."
He's smart to thank the fans. They're the ones watched and voted for him on American Idol and then bought his album.
Scotty's first single, "I Love You This Big," has also been certified gold. He'll be a part of Brad Paisley's 2012 tour that begins Jan. 12 in Grand Rapids, Mich.


  1. Should be sales, not shipments. He's sold over 600,000. Shipped over 700,000.

  2. Reporting is not what it used to be --half the time I don't think they bother to check the facts -- Maybe they don't know the difference between "sold" and "shipped."
