Press Party Article about Scotty McCreery

'American Idol' star Scotty McCreery learning to balance career with university

Country sensation Scotty McCreery, who found fame as the winner of 2011's 'American Idol', has revealed that he's currently balancing school with a successful music career.

The 19-year-old, who enjoyed a No.1 with his debut album, told Billboard.com that he is currently studying for a degree at North Carolina State University while travelling around on tour in support of his forthcoming new album:

"I have school Monday through Wednesday and we hit the touring circuit Thursday through Sunday."
Speaking about his new record, McCreery added that he is particularly excited to release it because he has been penning some of the tracks himself:

“We’re in the studio right now and we’ve got about 12 songs cut. That’s the one I’m really excited about because I had a hand in writing it. That is one of those things I didn’t have a chance to do on the first record because coming off Idol as the winner, you have a deadline for the first record. We were on the Idol tour as well so we were trying to squeeze it all in."
