Scotty McCreery didn't flop and makes history

Quote:
"American Idol" winner Scotty McCreery makes history as his debut album, "Clear as Day," bows at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with 197,000 sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

McCreery is the first country act to debut at No. 1 with their first studio album, and at 18-years old, the youngest man to open at the top of the chart with their debut release.

Previously, the youngest male to bow at No. 1 with their premiere album was Omarion, who was 20 when "O" started at No. 1 in 2005.

Surprisingly, McCreery, who turned 18 on Sunday (Oct. 9), is also the first "Idol" winner since 2003 to hit No. 1 with their first studio set.

Ruben Studdard was the last "Idol" champ to start their career with a No. 1 album, when his "Soulful" entered the tally dated Dec. 27, 2003, with 417,000 sold. Kelly Clarkson, the original "Idol" champ, also bowed at No. 1, with "Thankful" on May 3, 2003 (297,000).

"Clear as Day" also marks the biggest debut sales week of any "Idol" winner's first album since 2008, when David Cook's self-titled set started with 280,000 at No. 3. Kris Allen saw his eponymous 2009 debut launch with 80,000 (No. 11) and in 2010, Lee DeWyze's "Live It Up" arrived with 39,000 (No. 19).

Next week, watch for 2011 "Idol" second-place finisher, Lauren Alaina, to arrive on the Billboard 200 with her debut, "Wildflower."
Finally a success from AI winner
Good for him!

Re: Scotty McCreery didn't flop and makes history

I guess the whole country community already made him a favour. Watch his album ranks plummet out of top 10 next week.

and Lauren Alaina releases album this week too and her reviews are much better but don't think it'll be #1 since there are also other notable artists releasing albums this week.

Re: Scotty McCreery didn't flop and makes history

He is not interesting at all
And that final with Lauren was so bad
It's definitely the country music that helped him to get decent sales.
It will be interesting to see how he will sell after the first week.

Re: Scotty McCreery didn't flop and makes history

Hitsdailydouble predict his sales around 90-95K. still solid number.

Quote:
Evanescence will score the #1 album next week. It's the #2 spot that may be up for grabs as Adele, in her 34th week, will face some competition from Scotty McCreery, down only 50-55% in his second week, and from Jeff Kwatinetz's Five Finger Death Punch, who will more than double their previous best chart week. Here's how it looks headed into the weekend:

*Evanescence (Wind-up) 110-120k
Adele (XL/Columbia) 95-105k
Scotty McCreery (Mercury Nashville/19/Interscope) 90-95k
*Five Finger Death Punch (Prospect Park/EMI Label Services) 90-95k
*Lauren Alaina (Mercury Nashville/19/Interscope) 60-65k
Tony Bennett (Columbia) 55-60k
*Ryan Adams (PAX-AM/Capitol/EMI) 50-55k
Lady Antebellum (Capitol Nashville/EMI) 45-50k
Lil Wayne (Cash Money/Universal Republic) 40-45k
*Martina McBride (Republic Nashville) 35-40k
J Cole (Roc Nation/Columbia) 30-35k
Foster the People (Columbia) 27-30k
*Joe Jonas (Hollywood) 21-24k
Jay Z & Kanye West (Roc-a-Fella/Roc Nation) 18-21k
Wilco (dBpm/ANTI) 17-20k

Re: Scotty McCreery didn't flop and makes history

LOL. The change in this industry is baffling. People aren't just buying CDs anymore. But I thought these numbers included people who buy the album digitally?

Not in love with Scotty, but this should shut up the haters.

He seemed like such a douche so I'm impressed that he hasn't sold out yet and taken his shirt off.
