Scotty McCreery Is One of the Most Famous College Kids Right Now

By Cory Stromblad

Scotty McCreery is one of the brightest new stars in country music, but it’s the ‘Water Tower Town’ singer’s academic work that is bringing him some well-deserved attention these days.
According to Yahoo! Finance, the North Carolina State freshman is one of the 16 most famous college co-eds to be enrolled in classes this semester. The singer handles his double life with grace, but admits that life as a student is a tad more stressful than he had originally anticipated.

“I’ve been studying non-stop. But it was a lot tougher than I was anticipating going into it,” McCreery reveals of his journey in higher education. “When I was doing this in high school, balancing it all was nothing. But college was definitely a huge step. I’ve had to learn how to study again.”

The singer’s chaotic schedule is about to be elevated to a higher level as McCreery continues to work on his sophomore project, his follow-up to the 2010 platinum-selling ‘Clear as Day’ album. The process has been slow-going, but McCreery planned it out that way.
“The first one I did was a little rushed, I didn’t get to enjoy it or get creative with it,” he acknowledges. “This one we’re going to take our time and really make a good album.”
New music from McCreery is expected to be released later this year. The singer continues to tour when his schedule permits, having just announced his Weekend Roadtrip tour.
