Despite only moderate Country Radio success with the singles from his debut album Clear As Day, Scotty McCreery's legion of loyal fans helped the young star secure a Platinum-certified album for sales in excess of one million copies. 


The Garner, North Carolina native and NC State sophomore will release See You Tonight on October 15, 2013. Produced by Frank Rogers, the album features 13 tracks, of which Scotty co-wrote five of the tracks, including the current Top 40 radio hit, the title track. Other star writers include Ashley Gorley, busbee, Frank Rogers, Kyle Jacobs, J.T. Harding, Ross Copperman, Matt Jenkins, Jon Stweart and Preston Brust, 1/2 of LoCash Cowboys.

“This album is a big step from where we were. I have been writing for a long time now, since I was a kid, but these are the first songs I've had a chance to record and release to the public and I'm excited,” says McCreery. “I was lucky to have my first single off the record be one that I co-wrote.  I am excited about letting folks hear it. We have been working on this for the better part of a year now, so it's a long time coming.”


“I grew up loving old-school country, and you'll hear those things come out on this record,” he continues. “You will hear the contemporary country, but you will always hear the steel guitar and fiddle and those little nuances that make the older country what it was. I definitely am trying to stay true to my tastes as an artist on this album.”

He may be a big man on campus. But former “American Idol” star Scotty McCreery says he wants his peers at North Carolina State to look at him as just another student. He is a sophomore at the school this year – and says he is more at ease than he was during his first year. He’s to perform Saturday at Welcome Week for the school.  


Scotty McCreery doesn’t want to be treated any differently than other students at North Carolina State University this fall. The “American Idol” winner returns to campus as a sophomore this year. 


While he could take online courses and be out on the road playing his music, Scotty prefers to experience campus life and only go out for concert dates on the weekend.


Students might find it hard to treat Scotty as anything other than a celebrity this weekend, however. The singer will perform Saturday at Welcome Week festivities at the school. 

Scotty recently announced that he was extending his fall tour through November. His ticket sales have been great, and the singer is overwhelmed. He says to sell out shows as a new artist is really amazing to him.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

McCreery 2 hi resLooks like country music's favorite college student will be taking more weekend road trips this fall.  Due to the success of Scotty McCreery’s Weekend RoadTrip Tour 2013, a fall run has been announced and new VIP Experiences have been added!  Login to the online store on www.scottyfans.com to see which shows are available.    

 

The platinum-selling country artist had multiple sell-outs and more dates have been added through the end of 2013 to meet demand.  With more than 150 live shows under his belt across the U.S., Canada and the Philippines, McCreery has become a fan favorite appealing to all ages. 

 

"To have a sell-out as a new artist is really amazing for me," says McCreery.  "To have people want to come out and see our show means a lot.  When you hear it is a sell-out, it hypes you up even more.  We couldn't be happier with the way it is going.  It's 90 high-energy minutes of new material and country classics combined with video, lights and fan interaction.”

 

The show includes his gold-selling hits, "I Love You This Big" and "The Trouble With Girls," from his record-setting debut album Clear As Day.  McCreery also features new material from his upcoming album being released this fall, as well as classics from artists who influenced him, such as Elvis, Garth Brooks and George Strait.

 

After winning Season Ten of American Idol, Scotty immediately established himself as one of the hottest new stars in country music, earning both a platinum and gold album before turning 20.  He has sold an impressive 1.6 million albums in less than two years.

 

His debut album was the best -selling solo album released by a country artist in 2011 and secured his position as the youngest man in history to have his first album debut atop the all-genre Billboard Top 200 albums chart. 

 

That album, Clear As Day, was certified platinum for sales of one million in just 13 weeks. The first two singles from the album were each certified gold.  In 2012, his Christmas album was also certified gold. He was named Top New Artist by Billboard and won best new artist awards at the Academy of Country Music Awards, the American Country Awards, and the CMT Awards.  

 

He co-wrote his current single, "See You Tonight," which is climbing the charts.  He is in the studio now with Frank Rogers (Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker, Trace Adkins) finishing his sophomore studio album.  McCreery is also beginning his sophomore year at North Carolina State University in Raleigh.
