For the first time since 2003, American Idol’s 2011 winner, Scotty McCreery, released his first album and it has debuted at No. 1 on Billboard 200 chart. He is the first country “act” to debut at No. 1 with a first studio album. Just 16-years old when he auditioned, his uber deep voice and sweet demeanor won the hearts and ears of many – and today he is the youngest male singer open at the top of the charts with a first album. Selling 197,000 copies of Clear as Day is the biggest debut for any Idol winner since David Cook debuted with 280,000 sales. Here’s the audio voice and the lyrics of Clear as Day (starting with: you were sittin’ on that Silverado bumper…). The second video is Scotty talking about the lyrics in several of the songs on his album, including Out of Summertime, Write My Number on Your Hand, Dirty Dishes, You Make That Look Good (his rocker song) and I Love you this Big, which he did on the Idol finale.
