Wow! Scotty McCreery has sure come far from being the little kid on ‘American Idol’ last season. His first album, ‘Clear As Day,’ debuted No. 1 on the Billboard 200!

American Idol winner Scotty McCreery is one of the first Idol finalists to actually do well in the mainstream market since Carrie Underwood! The now 18-year-old singer’s first album, Clear As Day, debuted at Number 1 on the Billboard 200 when it was released in early October, which makes him the first country male singer to have such an honor. Are YOU impressed?

“My hopes were just to go out there and have fun and let people know that the album was out there,” Scotty said about the album. “Everybody hopes for the number one, but you never really expect it. To see it up there is pretty incredible.”

As the second youngest Idol winner behind Jordin Sparks, Scotty has had quite a ride since finishing the show in May. A week before his album dropped, Brad Paisley asked Scotty to tour with him in 2012.

Scotty, we’ve been cheering you on since the first day of Idol! Congrats on all your success!
