Scotty Makes Guiness World Records!!!!!!!

Scotty McCreery Makes Guinness World Records Book
By Erin Duvall


When you think about breaking Guinness world records, your thoughts may leap to awards for the longest fingernails in the world, or saying all the names of "Star Trek" episodes in less than a minute. However, Scotty McCreery will appear in the new Guinness World Records 2013 book for something a bit simpler, yet (in our book) much more impressive.

Scotty takes the title of the youngest male to enter the U.S. album charts at No. 1. In 2011, the 18-year-old's debut album, Clear as Day, premiered at the top of the all-genre Billboard 200 albums chart, also making him the first "American Idol" winner to do so since Ruben Studdard in 2003.

The North Carolina State University student isn't the only musician to make the record book this year. Rihanna is recognized as the best-selling digital artist in the U.S., with 47.57 million digital tracks sold during her career. Additionally, Lady Gaga takes the title for fastest-selling U.S. digital album with Born This Way, which sold 1.1 million copies its first week.

  3. Ironic. Off topic but I spent 3 hours in heaven last night listening and watching videos from some awesome singers, Scotty, Josh Turner and Keith Urban, WOW, You should look at the one of Keith at the Opry when he broght people on stage. He does that every time. He loves his fans and that's why I wish it was him who will have Scotty on tour. But there's the AI thing!

    1. Someone here read, Keith Urban has taken the AI job, one reason being, so he can spend more time with his family, but maybe next year he'll be touring again as there's talk that AI might change the judges every year!

  4. Barnes&Nobles,Best Buy.,Wal-Mart ,Amazon,all of these places are selling Scotty's album.I sure hope it dies great when it hits the store.i haven't heard anything about i-tunes,I'm waiting for them to release the singles before I buy any from them.When I purchased all the songs from the album on there site,then my hands were tied and could not buy the singles to help move him up the chart.I'll have to wait ,and see what goes on

  5. Fact is that Scotty will be touring next year. That´s all we know for sure. Then we can only guess what Scotty meant by his tweet about the good news. My guess is it might be confirmation about his headliner. Now I find it exciting to speculate who he will be touring with. It´s not Keith. It´s not Carrie. Could it be Brad again? Or George and Scotty? Or Taylor Swift and Scotty? I´d be happy either way. What do you´ll think?

    1. That's an interesting thought Taylor and Scotty! Taylor has been a huge star especially with the younger set for quite some time and now Scotty is too (but Scotty is a star with all ages) I don't know how popular Taylor is with all ages? On the the other hand, it wouldn't surprise me if Scotty toured again with Brad Paisley or maybe even Tim McGraw! Oh! the suspense of it all????

      Delete
    2. My guess is Who knows. I know for sure that if Scotty tour with Tim they would have fun cause he enjoys Tim's Company to like he does with brad. and Tim would take care of him. but if it is brad that would be Super Awesome. and for him to tour with Taylor that would be great too.cause her fan base has younger set so it would be perfect for him.but like always we will have to wait to See Who.

    3. Hey I forgot to tell you Congrats on being in the Guinnes World RECORDS BOOK Cause you deserve it big time. Oh I wanted to tell you also that I love you So much.

  6. I feel pretty sure Scotty will tour with Brad in 2013. Brad has him listed as touring with him, at least in the titles of Brad Paisley 2013 tour. I hope that I am right. In 2015 I hope to see him tour with Garth Brooks as he is going back on tour then. Scotty hasn't even mentioned, to my knowledge, of the honor of being in the GBWR. He and his family have been pretty quiet on twitter as well as BigLoretta.......wonder if they are extremely busy or what's up with that......

  9. The site I looked at had Brad tour, 2012 2013. Doesn't necessarily mean Scotty will be on it in 2013. The dates with Scotty thru Oct. Just like this year sometimes Brad has other guests. I wouldn't consider it written in stone. Maybe though which would be nice.

    ReplyDelete
  10. As far as I know Taylor Swift has not announced her opening act yet. This would be an amazing gig for him if he can't do a headlining tour. She's got a LOT of fans and her concerts ALWAYS sell out quickly. No doubt they would sell out faster with him. He'd gain sooo many new fans if this happened! Oh and obviously congrats to making it in the Guinness World Record Book!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I just think it is so amazing when he has kids that it will be in there to see, isn't it.? They will think they have the coolest father. He isn't even a father yet and he is still just one in a million. Noone quite like him ever. Yes I think it will be Brad too, for some reason he just really thinks a lot of him and he just is always talking about how Brad has been there for him and how much he has learned from him just on tour.I guess we will know soon. Well Congrats Scotty!!!! ILYTB

  12. Kill the suspense, Scotty, you tease. Personally don't care for TS but if it's her it will be a big tour.

    ReplyDelete
  13. In response to 7:18PM..actually Gabi is going to UNC Chapel Hill. She is rooming with a friend from GMHS. Chapel Hill is about 35 miles from NCSU.

    2. PS..What if Scotty has his own tour next year?..Does that sound possible?!..If not, I vote for Brad, too!..Really love him for what he's done for our Scotty!!..Just hope he gets a bunch more headliners!!

    3. 1:04: What was stated as fact that isn't?...you've lost me.

  14. He probably not be able...costs alone may be a problem.Lots of money involved. Brad's footing the bills. And he really needs more fans and more misic. I don't think he is ready for that, BG is headlining his own tour but he has had lots of radio play and more people know who he is. I didn't say he has more fans but he has been doing this longer. I mention the big concerts draw larger crowds than what he's drawn. Out local football stadium hold 60,000 and more. Kenny Chesney filled it. I think Virginia last night could hold 200.000. He can't fill those big arenas yet. You have to remember his fan base has many kids and they may be able to go only once.And many grandparents on a fixed income. He needs to draw more of a college crowd, that age group,people who may go more than once. Many may never be able to go just because it's expensive forthem/ I hope we hear something soon though.

  15. I think Taylor would be good she wins awards for her concerts she had over I think 20 million twitter followers . hunter Hayes went on tour with her and it launched his career . Many of Taylors fans would vote for him for awards . I know many people don't like her I do but not that new song of hers . I think the exposure from her would help Scotty so much and a duet with her would be awesome

  16. HH is touring with Taylor Swift next year I believe. Scotty and Taylor Swift? I don't think the combination would be beneficial. She isn't Country enough. Scotty did appear with Tim McGraw recently, didn't he---on a tour with KC?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. HH is going on tour with Carrie Underwood this year. He went on tour with Taylor last year that's why he's blown up as much as he has, not that he's not good enough himself. But being on tour with her opens up opportunities. That's why I think it would be great for him. I just wish he would hurry and announce already! Lol.

      Delete
    2. I agree . HH already went on tour with Taylor . Judge because she crossover doesn't mean it wouldn't be a great fit most of Taylors fans like real country to . It would be an opportunity for Scotty to throw out the twine and just reel those fans in they would love him . I like her I would be first in line to buy those tickets and a duet would make my night they would compliment each others voice instead of screaming over him and we can't even hear him .young people today love all kinds of music its just different . Taylors concerts bring out a really classy group of fans . Think about it the parents have to take their kids they would love it not regret if Scotty is opening .I always try to look at the big picture.

    3. My thoughts too 1:41 PM. I would absolutely love that concert. getting real excited now -lol - let´s wish and hope

      Delete
  17. I agree. Touring with Taylor would mean exposure to a huge crowd and gaining many new fans. And being both young and sharing many values and would make an adorable combination on stage and create a lot of media buzz and might open doors to radio.

    ReplyDelete
  18. No way Taylor Swift !!!!!!!!!! He has lots of followers and not too many like her and would hurt him I would think. I know I couldn't sit through a concert with her. I would have to leave right after Scotty's set. Hopefully, he will be with Brad again as they are a perfect match.

    1. That's your opinion and its not about you . It didn't hurt Hunter . I would rather it be her then a drunk fest with some other artist out there. Taylor is talented she writes beautiful I don't like her new song at all but the rest I like.

      Delete

    2. I like Taylor and I´m perfectly ok with 12:23 PM or others disliking her. We all have our preferences and we have the right to like who we like.

      But I would like to comment to 12:23 PM´s statement" He has lots of followers and not too many like her" is not valid unless you personally have been in contact with all of his million fans or did run a poll.

  19. So much of Taylor Swifts side came because her cross over into the pop field,she's a smart business woman and knew that is where she needed to get fans to move her up the charts.The same for Kelly Clarkson it's the pop side that gave her the break.and now she's moving into the country side of things.The pop side tends to buy a lot more of an artist songs,in the country side it's limited because so many can not support another artist.There stuck in a rut.So much emphasis on wanting to keep there artist on top so they can't branch out and support someone else for fear there artist won't be No1. that is why so many struggle to get ahead.Hunter Hayes just flew up the chart s with his single wanted ,and believe it came from the pop side that got it up there on the charts.So many I know that are pop fans bought the single,he is going to be a cross over,also that what helped carrie Underwood get ahead of the game.I for one think some one like Taylor could help Scotty move on up to the top.With that one special song ,and a tour with Swiift would send him flying out of the ball parkIt's only an opinion ,maybe even a dream,but I for one would think it's would be fantastic.

  20. Sorry .article above should be Taylor Swifts success,not side.

  21. 1:34 your are so right . Scotty will never cross over and his voice would not fit on Pop stations .remember Elvis was a crossover artist . I love country and RnB how about that pairing ? So it just shows people have many different interest in music . Heck my 23 year old son listens to heavy rock hard core rap RnB and yes Scotty He loves him . if you want the radio stations and academy to play Scotty and open their minds and not to think he needs to do his dues then some of his set in their ways fans have to change to it makes you no better. He won a reality show singing compition and he is country and stayed true to it that will never change. Look at Blake and Keith both judges Blake won last years voice with an RnB singer and those two can't get much more country and even Brad was going to be a judge on AI . We have to be able to embrace these changes. All types of country are out there it just makes it better you don't have to like everyone. I hated country until Scotty now I love it even the old stuff . Scotty is a throw back country singer with a contemporary flare so he is new . The song gone is a cross between rock and country and I love it walk in the country also. That's why Scotty appeals to young and old he has the ability to do both. I love it and I love him. So for me it doesn't matter as long as he gets huge and makes it big I don't care what stepping stones he takes. I love Brad but would love to see Scotty branch out and appeal to his contemporary side like Keith.

  22. So would I. There is so much fusion going on in all types of music genre these days. Mix of country / rock / pop or rap/pop/rock and even rap /country etc. Due to this developement it´ll be hard to make it on trad. country. I´d think it would be a wise choice for Scotty to branch out and add duets with established artist like Taylor. BTW this is a nice and interesting discussion. You think?

  24. Where do people come up with all this speculation?? Shouldn't they just wait and see and enjoy SCOTTIES choice?? Really no other fan group is so self empowered..must be a little annoying to this kid but he's just too nice to say anything and puts up with these stooges and their management. This doesn't seem to follow any other country stars!

    1. You need medication . We are just stating who we would like him to tour with . Your annoying. Go somewhere and be a non productive fan. I know your not a fan just by the way you call him some kid .your a troll on this site to cause drama.

    2. I see you can´t figure out why people speculate, 7:29 AM. The answer to that is simple: See, when ppl do that it´s because they can think.
      Your advice to just wait and see fits better to those who lack that ability

    3. I agree 11:38. To those that want to set and wait...please do; but while waiting no point in getting antsy with those that want a little cerebral exchange. Wait patiently instead of criticizing FOS.

  25. Agree Scottie must be weary of having these millions who mother. Hopethey turn into fans before HE turns 45..that would be really weird.

  26. Hope Our Scotty doesn't throw in the towel someday and become a businessman or something because of these millions of busybodies!! Can see why some might get sick of all the chatter and manipulation. He gets so much of that thing right here! Wish people would get the fact he isn't THEIR kid. The agony of being in the public presence- I guess.

    1. Oh give us all a break...is that supposed to threaten and scare us? We don't have enough power to cause "Our Scotty" to throw in towel...that is absurd. If Scotty should ever want to become anything other than entertainer, he'll do it and if he wants to entertain, he'll do it. Seriously doubt when he's on stage in front of thousands of screaming fans making mega bucks that he thinks to himself "Well this is all well and good, but I really need to change careers because of all those busybodies at FOS" We're probably no more a bleep on his radar. You give us way to much credit. Could you possibly overdramatize more? Talk about sick of manipulation right as as ur doing it. Plz.

    1. P.s I know this to be true because that's why this person put these comments at the bottom page instead of replying to the comments they are saying they are upset by. This person wants his fans on this site to see the comments so they put it at the bottom .whoever it is just wants us to fight and argue and I'm not falling for it .

  28. lMAO you are the same fan making these comments your agreeing with yourself. lol lol lol. What a idiot . I'm laughing so hard I can't breath literally I'm rolling on the floor you are a clown. Trust me no one is biting. The girls who run this site won't disable the comments because of one troll that talking to them self. Oh by the way sorry about your site someone must of really made him mad to close the comment section down. Trust me I know what your doing . Remember a true fan will retaliate . There are other avenues to take. You will not come on this site and stir up trouble . I'm asking the fans on this site don't respond to these kind of comments this person is a fan of the Web site that that supports both artist I'm not saying the name . They are mad because he disabled the comment section on that site. This will be my last comment to this person.

    1. Thank you 8:55am! I didn't know about the comment section on that other duo sight closing down. Now I see and that explains the onslaught of fanatical demeaning long drawn out preaching that hit this site. Their jealousy knows no end. IMO its obvious, they are trying to get this site to shut down by disrespecting the fans and many of Scotty fans comments!
