It's the American Idol dream!
Not only has Scotty McCreery's debut album Clear As Day debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, but he's also the first country act to have their freshman album debut at the top of the chart.
AND, at 18 years old, he's the youngest man to open at the top of the chart with his first release.
What's even crazier is that since Kelly Clarkson's debut in May 2003 and Ruben Studdard's debut in December 2003, he's the first AI winner to hit Number 1.
Good for him! That's huuuge!
In other news, what's Taylor Hicks up to these days??
