Scotty McCreery Debut Album Goes Gold

by at . Comments

Scotty McCreery is having a good week.

The most recent American Idol winner was named Best New Artist at last night's American Country Awards, accepting the trophy via a live performance, as seen here:

The young crooner also watched his debut album, "Clear as Day," surpass 500,000 sold copies, a feat that took only two months to accomplish. It currently sits atop the Billboard Country Albums chart.

“It’s huge," Scotty said in a statement. "Every artist dreams of a gold album and works hard for it, so it’s a major accomplishment to have your debut album go gold. This is just incredible."

Way to go, Scotty M! We're very happy to see you overcome this Thanksgiving incident.

Scotty is so deserving of the New Artist Award. People of all ages love Scotty's great voice, moral values and choice of songs. He will be the one to watch in years to come.... maybe our next George Strait??? Scotty's voice over George Strait's Christmas song "Christmas Cookies" was fantastic!!!
