Scotty McCreery’s “Clear As Day” lead notable albums this week
Scotty McCreery may not be a world-wide pop idol but he’s doing just fine as a countr y artist, thank you. This is in spite of the fact that his singles “I Love You This Big” and “The Trouble With Girls” aren’t big charting hits (yet). The Band Perry’s The Band Perry features mega-hit “If I Die Young,” still one of country music’s best-selling digital singles, “You Lie” and the #1 hit of the week at Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart, “All Your Life.”


  1. There's a nice article that's just been posted....Lubbock Avalanche-Journal. LubbockOnline

  2. Oh! and those numbers for Scotty are proud of him and in such a short time. He only released his album in October...that's great.

  3. He said that Scottys singles were not hits,yet both are gold,to me that's a hit.
