American Idol winner Scotty McCreery has revealed how he was absolutely delighted when his debut album Clear As Day went to number one as he was not expecting. Scotty also admitted that he was looking forward to singing the National Anthem on the opening day of the World Series of Baseball on October 19.
McCreery explained, “My hopes were just to go out there and have fun and let people know that the album was out there. Everybody hopes for the number one, but you never really expect it. To see it up there is pretty incredible.” Scotty then spoke about his love of baseball.
He added, “This is absolutely incredible for me. I have had two loves in life – music and baseball. The World Series is the biggest event in baseball, so to be there and be able to sing the National Anthem is like putting my two greatest loves together. I am looking forward to seeing which two teams will be playing.” Scotty McCreery’s debut album Clear As Day is the first debut album from a country singer to sell over 100,000 in the first week since Carrie Underwood in 2005.
