Clear As Day is the perfect title for Scotty McCreery's debut country album because this impressive collection of songs clearly and vividly captures who Scotty is as an artist and a young man. America fell in love with Scotty in 2011 when he appeared on American Idol and immediately made a name for himself with his deep and undeniably country voice, strong sense of self, small-town roots, and unwavering integrity and conviction.
In May, he won Season Ten of American Idol when a record-breaking 122.4 million votes were cast for the finale and nearly 39 million people tuned in to see the winner's name announced. He recorded his debut album while starring in the American Idols Live! Tour, which Pollstar ranked as one of the nation's Top 15 tours.
Scotty is pleased that he was able to accomplish the goals he had set for his album. "I wanted to make sure people could hear me through the songs they were listening to," he says. "On American Idol, I always told them, 'What you see is what you get. Scotty on the show is Scotty off the show. I'm the same guy onstage and offstage.' On this album, I wanted them to make sure they really got who I am, how I grew up in Garner, N.C., and what I am all about," he says. "It was also really important to me to keep some of the traditional elements of country music in it, to remember where country came from, and I think we did that. I hope that the people who listen to this record will see that and appreciate it and really see exactly who I am."

  2. I agree 8:51am! Scotty with all he stands for is a breath of fresh air in this upside down world we live in. I read Max Lucado's Christmas prayer that Scotty tweeted about, and a prayer for Jesus's return to restore peace and sanity is my prayer too. Another unfathomable act of evil against the most innocent is heart-breaking! My prayers go out to all those who suffered this tremendous loss and grieve with them!

    1. Amen, 10:01. Gut-wrenching and heartbreaking can't come close to describing the horror. May God somehow comfort these grieving families and the community of Newtown, CT. My heart is broken for them. God bless Scotty for being a bright light in a very dark, desperate world we are living in. Another reason we need people like him in the public eye at this point in history, public figures who stand for good and represent love and hope.

    2. Since Scotty is getting his wisdom teeth pulled on Jan. 2nd, he'll be on the "disabled list" for at least a couple of weeks. I am hoping once he can sing again he'll be making some progress on his sophomore album. He says it is likely coming out the 2nd quarter of 2013 (April/May/June) so it will have to be recorded early in the year for a second quarter release date. Plus, sometimes it is tricky traveling in January with winter weather, etc. I am willing to go through a dry spell in January to get a new album, that is definitely worth the sacrifice!!! Remember, we survived spring last year while he was back in high school and just playing baseball, so we can do it!!
