Only two months down and American Idol's latest winner has gone gold!!

Scotty McCreery, the 18-year-old North Carolinian says he owes it all to the fans who helped him win the competition in the first place.

But he's still shocked out of his mind!

He said in an official statement:

It’s huge! 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.

Congrats, Scotty! We hope to hear even greater things from you in the future!

    no they dream of platinum! and his sales are not that impressive for an idol winner. Plus these certificates are not for sales theyre for albums shipped out! Just like your story bout Rihanna getting 300k platinum sales in UK first week…NO it actually was 162k sales. Big difference.

    Congrats or whatever, but uh…I don't know this kid, nor do I know (or care about) any of the dozens of "winners." Idol has been a joke since season two. Only Kelly Clarkson is the original and she's not very good either.

    UMM, NOOO… MOST ARTIST DREAM OF THE ELUSIVE DIAMOND ALBUM (10 MIL SALES OR MORE). GOLD IS NOTHING PLUS IT'S BASED ON SHIPPED CD'S NOT BOUGHT CD'S. SOUNDSCAN TRACKS BOUGHT CD'S AND HE'S DOING SHITASTIC. BYE BYE COUNTRY HICK!! HIS NEXT ALBUM WILL FLOP LIKE ALL MALE WINNERS OF IDOL, XFACTOR, ETC. ONLY 2 CHICS HAVE DONE WELL FORM IDOL AND THAT'S CARRIE UNDERWOOD AND KELLY CLARKSON. THIS DUDE IS AN #EPICFAIL.

    I didn't buy his album but I tried to listen to his song and it's so boring, his voice is so monotone. I'm sleepy the half way imagining I'm listening to 65 years old man singing. I am surprised!!!! With the huge promotion and with the support of AI, he supposed to get Platinum already. His version of National Anthem was so boring.
