Found some numbers on how Scotty is doing on the charts on Idol forum and thought I'd post them here.  Thank you DrDeb & Dusty125 for all the work you do in gathering the numbers for Scotty's sales! 

Scotty's recent concerts have helped his iTunes bump continue into this week:

    1. Think it will go double plat. before the new one comes out?

  2. Looking at this, it just seems to me that CAD is a HIT ALBUM despite lack of radio airplay & some saying Scotty needs a hit song - any one of the songs on this album are hit songs or potential hit songs with enough radio support (if that's what determines a hit song) - Double Platinum would mean 2 million albums sold, right? I don't know...we're already going into August...

    Is there a new artist category at the CMAs? If there is, it definitely should go to Scotty/CAD.

    4. I think that chart by goldderby.com is from earlier this year - but CAD is still doing well!

    5. Scotty is in Nashville - as for HH? I think it was the Country Teen Award or something - I have never followed or watched the TCAs -

    6. Thanks!..Did see Ashley's tweet 'Nahville-wheels up'..And HH won Teen choice award, the one Scotty was up for.:(..It seems HH fans are dissing Scotty, and Scotty fans are up-in-arms!..(smh!)

    7. OOPS! (Nashville)

    8. yup, and that's what teen fans are like -- well, scotty still does have die-hard teen mccreerians and they're all over twitter up-in-arms all the time -- the thing is, a lot of these teens listen to pop, and we all know how frivolous that can be -- in a sense, it's good he didn't win because then he'd be in that hollywood circus type of entertainment news -- i know he's 18 (going on 19) and all that, but he is really mature for his age -- to see him perform and hold his own on stage with Brad and Tim, meeting Garth, etc....that says a lot -- these guys are huge in the world of country music & they've taken scotty under their wing -- i love it when they call him "kid!" :)

    9. And I also think CAD should get the "breakthrough or breakout album" award - if there's such an award :)

  3. With regards the TCAs, here's something from an interview with Scotty (Fame Does Not Control Him, July 12, 2012) -- in a previous post on this site --

    ....

    "McCreery, who seems to have the perfect disposition for a country singer, said he understands the need to connect with fans. “The stars who reach out and build a fan base, person by person, are the ones who last,” he said.

    "“After all the buzz dies down and things kind of even out, as they always do, you still have that corps of fans who will stay with you through thick and thin.”"

  5. Yay! Scotty! CAD was good then, and is still steady and climbing! A testament to Scotty's beautiful voice and singing! Two of the classiest guys in music, for me, are at the top, in these stats, Scotty and Michael Buble! Speaking of Michael, who'll ever forget Michael doing a spoof of Scotty on Saturday Nite Live! So Cute!!

  6. Well Scotty cannot win all of the awards, but he got the better ones. That Hollywood stuff is a bit much when U are trying to build up your career, that is fast living over there. HH fans was using some tactics the last two weeks on this site, to throw us off guard by talking about and criticizing and creating strife between Scotty's fans. Do U see them now that he won. U got to watch people they are slick and cunning like the devil. People are jealous of Scotty. Don't buy that stuff talkinng bout it is the people from overseas talking about Scotty's clothes they love Scotty. God bless all of us McCreeans and bless Scotty and his family. I plead the blood of Jesus over all of us and our families Maybe someone can start a fan site for teenagers for Scotty.

  7. The teens are the problem because they don't see the importance of working together . They would rather put down other artists or each other than give Scotty the solid support. As soon As they move on Scotty will be secure in the adult Country music world and he will prosper.

  8. The Tweens and teens will move on but the rest of us will be with him forever and his faith will bring him to new heights. The younger fans will return when they grow and mature. None of us wish him anything except the success of a lifetime.

  9. He is building the base person by person brilliantly and the fans must give him the trust to create Something unique. There are alot of country people out there so allow him the flexibility to write, duet, maybe even act so that Scotty can sample much and do college too. Singing with LA will bring them both to the top without question. One fanbase plus another equals the top. Let go of the interference and both will soar.Everyone just recognize the bigger picture out there in the music world. Encourage and see the limitless possibilities that can develop. Give true support so Scotty can continue to flourish in a very thorny business .
