Tracking the success of CWSM

Excerpted from the Hollywood Reporter:
By Fred Bronson

Season 10's McCreery has three new No. 1s, all thanks to his first holiday album, Christmas With Scotty McCreery. The set opens in pole position on Top Holiday Albums and Top Internet Albums. The lead single from the album, “Christmas in Heaven,” bows at No. 1 on the Holiday Digital Songs tally. These three new No. 1s, added to McCreery’s previous seven, bring his total of chart-toppers to ten.

McCreery now joins [Adam Lambert] in the top ten [among all Idols with the most No. 1 songs] (see current ranking below):
Kelly Clarkson 79
Carrie Underwood 65
Chris Daughtry (Daughtry) 39
Fantasia 31
Ruben Studdard 16
Jennifer Hudson 15
Mandisa 15
Clay Aiken 12
Adam Lambert 10
Scotty McCreery 10
Being No. 1 on Holiday Digital Songs is just part of the good news for McCreery on that chart. In addition to “Christmas In Heaven,” McCreery has six other songs from his seasonal set debut, including “Mary Did You Know?” (No. 18), “Let It Snow” (No. 31), “First Noel” (No. 38), “Christmas Comin’ Round Again” (No. 39), “O Holy Night” (No. 43) and “Santa Claus Is Back in Town” (No. 49). That means seven of the 11 tracks on the album are charting on Holiday Digital Songs.

Your doing Great Scotty just keep on doing what your doing and I tell you you are going to be right up there with all those Big Artist your already there in my book. ILYTB

  2. Wow!!! Listen up naysayers who thought Scotty should have never won American Idol. He is a winner in every sense of the word, we McCreerians as well as Randy Jackson and Jennifer Lopez knew it all the time but soon EVERYBODY is going to know it. He has the goods, the "IT" Factor, X Factor, whatever you want to call it!!!!!

    We love you so much, Scotty!!!!! Congratulations again!!!!

  3. How wonderful!! Good for you, Scotty! I really have enjoyed CWSM. It is my favorite Christmas album. Thank you, Scotty! Your voice is so amazing. I can listen to your CDs all day long! ILYTB!! Grandma in TX

  4. I love every song on CWSM I'm a little surprised that "Jingle Bells" is charting. Scotty's version is great!!!

  5. I love Scotty's take on Jingle Bells....let's face it.......I love every song on the Christmas album. His voice is so rich, full, soothing and beautiful. Not a day goes by that I am not listening to this CD. I have Christmas In Heaven running through my brain. I am so happy that this album/songs are charting. I only wish he was at the top of that list, but that takes time.Considering that the release was just a little over a week ago it is doing fanastic!!!! Come on Platinum!!!!!

    1. Love Scotty's version of Jingle Bells. Best version I've heard....with that voice and arrangement...Wow!

    2. Yes, the very best version. I listened (ok jammed and sang) to it on my way home from work. I always come home in the BEST mood. I hope many, many others listen and buy it so they can feel joyous! I love love Jingle Bells because it has never been a favorite of mine, but it now is one of my top picks. I can't wait to see him at The Beacon and MA shows!!!
