Scotty McCreery Confident in ‘See You Tonight’

By Gale Thompson
Scotty McCreery released his sophomore album, ‘See You Tonight,’ on Tuesday (Oct. 15), but unlike most artists, the 20-year-old says he has no fear about the dreaded sophomore slump.
“The first record ['Clear as Day'] came right in the middle of everything. We just got off the show, the ‘Idol’ tour just finished up. We were kind of in the thick of everything,” he tells Taste of Country. “Now we can kind of sit back and back away from the limelight and stuff and make the record and kind of sit down and get creative with it, whereas with the first record we were really in a time crunch and everything. It’s been a cool thing not to have that kind of pressure on us.”
The North Carolina native included five songs he wrote on his sophomore album, unlike ‘Clear as Day,’ which didn’t include any of his self-penned tunes. But McCreery says he is confident in all of the songs he is releasing.
“If I put a song on the record, it’s because I thought it had a point and a meaning to it,” he says. “Any artist that puts a song out there, they’re not nervous about it. More so excited about what fans have to hear and anxious. So not nervous; I’m excited to hear what some of the reactions are to some of these songs because they’re a little different, you know? We’ve got some new feels and some different topics we’re hitting on this record, so it’ll be cool.”
The title track of ‘See You Tonight,’ which McCreery co-wrote, is in the Top 30 and climbing. Order the album here.
‘See You Tonight’ is also The Boot’s fan-voted Album of the Month for October of 2013.

Hits Daily Double has come out with its sales projections (based on 1 day sales) for rising country act/Season 10 Idol champ Scotty McCreery, not to mention the Willie Nelson duets album featuring Carrie Underwood among many other talented ladies of country, Americana, and gospel.
Pearl Jam (Republic) 170-180k
Paul McCartney (Hear Music) 70-80k
Avett Brothers (American/Republic) 60-65k
Scotty McCreery (19/Interscope) 40-45k
Head and the Heart (Sub Pop) 35-40k
Willie Nelson (Legacy) 27-30k
Gavin DeGraw (RCA) 25-28k
Trivium (Roadrunner) 14-17k
Mary J. Blige (Verve/Interscope) 12-14k
Fall Out Boy PAX AM Days EP (Island/IDJ) 12-14k

The projection is, not surprisingly, a stiff drop (of 77-80%) from the 1st week sales of Scotty’s post-Idol debut, Clear As Day, which sold 197k when it was released 10/4/11. The projection is also in the same range as the 41k with which Christmas With Scotty McCreery (Scotty’s Christmas album) opened after being released 10/16/2012. If the projection holds, Scotty is in good shape to score his 2nd #1 country album, and has a pretty good chance at his 3rd t10 debut on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
