Scotty fills out a form about himself

Loving the self portrait Scotty! lolol

If you’re like us, you’ll have seen every season of American Idol and you’ll surely remember this country-crooning cutie from Season 10. Scotty McCreery had the voice and charisma to experience the moment millions of hopeful singers dream of: standing on stage and having Ryan Seacrest say “You are the next American Idol!”

Ever since that moment last May, he’s been on the fast track with his first single I Love You This Big and now a debut album entitled Clear As Day. We asked Scotty to take some time out of his busy schedule to fill out our my musical mind survey — and he had some pretty sweet answers!

American Idol' Winner Scotty McCreery Heading for No. 1 on Billboard 200

October 05, 2011

By Keith Caulfield, Los Angeles

"American Idol" 2011 winner Scotty McCreery is poised to become the first "Idol" champ since Ruben Studdard in 2003 (and only third overall) to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with their first release.

Industry prognosticators suggest McCreery's new album, "Clear As Day," will bow atop the tally next week with perhaps 160,000 to 170,000 copies sold by week's end on Oct. 9.

Studdard was the last winner to start their career in the top slot, when his "Soulful" bowed on the chart dated Dec. 27, 2003, with 417,000 sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Kelly Clarkson, the first "Idol" winner, also premiered at No. 1 with "Thankful" on May 3, 2003 (297,000).

McCreery's launch would also easily mark the biggest debut sales week for any "Idol" winner since 2008, when David Cook's self-titled set bowed at No. 3 with 280,000 copies sold. In 2009, Kris Allen's eponymous album started at No. 11 with 80,000. And then last year, Lee DeWyze's "Live It Up" debuted at No. 19 with 39,000.

While McCreery's coming debut will be the big news on the Billboard 200 next week, three more acts are aiming for the top 10: Jack's Mannequin, Mayday Parade and Feist. Jack's "People and Things" may shift perhaps 30,000, as could Feist's "Metals." Mayday Parade's self-titled set, meanwhile, could launch with around 25,000.

Presently, it looks like Adele's "21" will shift into the runner-up slot while this week's No. 1 -- J. Cole's "Cole World: the Sideline Story" -- will fall to either No. 3 or No. 4.


Scotty McCreery K102 Class of 2011

'American Idol' winner Scotty McCreery paid a visit to the Fan Cave | MLB.com: News

NEW YORK -- The last time he pitched for Garner High School back home in North Carolina, Scotty McCreery threw a complete game and struck out nine. Then he was told, "You're going to Hollywood," and they gave him a number and sent him on his way to eventual glory.

Most people know the 2011 "American Idol" winner and his baritone country voice now, and his family and friends also know that he and baseball are inseparable friends.

On the day his new album, "Clear As Day," was released, McCreery, 17, came with his mother Judy and his band to the MLB.com studios to record several videos that will premiere soon. Then McCreery jumped into a black SUV and was whisked across town to the MLB Fan Cave on Broadway and Fourth Street, where he had some teenage fun and made a video to promote his just-announced assignment of singing the Star-Spangled Banner at Game 1 of the World Series on Oct. 19.

MLB.com: 'Idol' winner McCreery shoots video at Fan Cave

NEW YORK -- The last time he pitched for Garner High School back home in North Carolina, Scotty McCreery threw a complete game and struck out nine. Then he was told, "You're going to Hollywood," and they gave him a number and sent him on his way to eventual glory.

Most people know the 2011 "American Idol" winner and his baritone country voice now, and his family and friends also know that he and baseball are inseparable friends.

On the day his new album, "Clear As Day," was released, McCreery, 17, came with his mother Judy and his band to the MLB.com studios to record several videos that will premiere soon. Then McCreery jumped into a black SUV and was whisked across town to the MLB Fan Cave on Broadway and Fourth Street, where he had some teenage fun and made a video to promote his just-announced assignment of singing the Star-Spangled Banner at Game 1 of the World Series on Oct. 19.

"It's a huge deal. Baseball's been my life until this singing thing," McCreery said. "To sing at the World Series game with the national anthem, it's the biggest stage in baseball so it'll be pretty amazing for me."

McCreery grew up a Red Sox fan because his father is from New England, and he also follows the Braves because of his roots in the South. He shot some billiards in the back of Fan Cave, and a rack of Red Sox balls were rolled onto the table for him. He signed the autograph wall, inscribing "Play Ball!" above his name. Then McCreery revealed a previously unknown fact.

"I've got a little baseball Hall of Fame history in my family: Jim 'Catfish' Hunter," he said. "He was on my mother's side of the family, so she can probably tell you. He was a Yankees and Athletics guy."

Judy explained: "My mother is from the northeastern part of [North Carolina], and so is Catfish Hunter. She says they are distant cousins, that their grandfathers were brothers, and they used to go to reunions together when they were small. She's a Hunter, he was from Hartford [N.C.]."

"I tell people we were closely related. He was my uncle," Scotty said.
