Scotty McCreery: ‘Idol’ on a roll


ALBANY — From bagging groceries to becoming the youngest man in history to debut a No. 1 album on Billboard’s Top 200, Scotty McCreery has had to grow up fast.

“The biggest surprise, I would say, is how much of a business it really is,” said the 19-year-old country superstar who will play the Palace Theatre in Albany tonight as part of his first headliner tour. “All you dream about is getting on stage and performing and making music. You don’t dream about the behind-the-scenes business meetings, manager meetings and all of the stuff that goes into making those dreams become a reality.”

Thirty-nine million people watched McCreery win the 10th season of “American Idol” in May 2011. Capturing 122.4 million votes, he became an overnight sensation, much the way Elvis did after his first appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show” in 1956.

  9. I obviously also see Scotty losing to Tate Stevens on Taste of Country. It is close now but Scotty's numbers are going down fast from a good start. At 12:08 Scotty had 67.24 and Tate had 32.76
    Now Scotty has 49.02 and Tate has 50.98. He went down about 18% in just one hour. Lets all try and vote every hour for our Scotty!
