Scotty McCreery’s debut album, Clear As Day, has recently been certified Gold for sales of more than 500,000. The album has been sitting at No. 1 on the Top Country Albums chart for the five weeks since its Oct. 4 release. The album’s first single, “I Love You This Big,” has also been certified Gold.
The UMG Nashville star is the youngest man in history to open at the top of the all-genre chart with a debut release. Clear As Day also garnered the highest first-week sales of any solo country artist this year.
McCreery will perform his current hit, “The Trouble With Girls,” on the American Country Awards, which airs live on FOX tonight (12/5) at 8 PM/ET.
Additionally, he will also be a part of Brad Paisley’s 2012 tour, which begins Jan. 12 in Grand Rapids, MI.
