Scotty McCreery Breaking Country Music Charts

I wish I had a little more time to comment about this, but I'm still away, and this is a post and run!! Hope your all enjoying your days off! I am <3

After winning the 10th season of "American Idol" Wednesday (May 25), Scotty McCreery blasts onto Billboard's Nielsen BDS-based Country Songs chart at No. 32 with coronation track "I Love You This Big."

McCreery performed the song after hearing host Ryan Seacrest announce his victory, as well as the night before (May 24), on "Idol."

The bow marks the highest for a brand new artist's first single since the chart converted to BDS data the week of Jan. 20, 1990.

Among new artists (unaccompanied by established acts), another musical reality program champion previously held the mark for highest Country Songs launch on an initial try. Brad Cotter, winner of the second season of "Nashville Star," charged in at No. 42 with "I Meant To" the week of May 22, 2004. The song peaked at No. 35 that August.

(Counting new artists arriving with previously-charted acts, Toby Keith's daughter Krystal debuted at No. 41 with her father on their duet "Mockingbird" on the Nov. 27, 2004, chart. The song reached No. 27. Like McCreery, the younger Keith was 17 at the time of her bow).

"Big" begins with 3.2 million audience impressions on 76 of the 127 stations that report to Country Songs. Unsurprisingly, WQDR in Raleigh, N.C. - six miles north of McCreery's hometown of Garner, N.C. - led all panelists with 24 plays in the chart's tracking week. In the aftermath of its local hero's victory, the station has dubbed itself "Scotty 94.7" (complete with an "Idol"-inspired logo).

McCreery isn't the only "Idol" finalist from this season to translate four months of exposure on the series to a Country Songs appearance. Runner-up Lauren Alaina likewise bows at No. 49 with "Like My Mother Does." The 16-year-old also premiered her ballad on last Tuesday's finale showdown against McCreery.
