Former American Idol star Scotty McCreery, who won the show back in 2011, decided that he still wanted to continue with his studies, despite his new found stardom. Scotty studies at North Carolina State University and he has been talking about how he balances his studies with his music career.
Billboard quote the singer as saying, "I have school Monday through Wednesday and we hit the touring circuit Thursday through Sunday." It doesn't stop there either, as Scotty McCreery is currently working on a new album, “We’re in the studio right now and we’ve got about 12 songs cut.”
Scotty also admitted that he was looking forward to releasing the track See You Tonight, “That’s the one I’m really excited about because I had a hand in writing it. That is one of those things I didn’t have a chance to do on the first record because coming off Idol as the winner, you have a deadline for the first record. We were on the Idol tour as well so we were trying to squeeze it all in," he added.
Scotty McCreery's previous album Clear as Day topped the Billboard 200 chart and Scotty will be hoping that his follow-up record, which will be released later in the year, manages to have a similar success.
