Scotty McCreery’s ‘Clear as Day’ Goes Platinum

Scotty McCreery

It was only a matter of when, not if, Scotty McCreery‘s debut album would be certified platinum for one million copies sold. Last night, his Nashville record label made it official.

“Congratulations to @ScottyMcCreery, his debut album, Clear As Day, is certified PLATINUM!” a tweet from the UMG Nashville Twitter page reads.

McCreery’s mother, Judy McCreery, also tweeted the above picture of the singer with producer Mark Bright. “Scotty with a 1940s Gibson guitar given to him by his producer Mark Bright to celebrate ClearAsDay going platinum,” she wrote.

‘Clear as Day’ was released in October and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard all-genre charts. McCreery is the youngest male singer to ever accomplish that. On the strength of two singles — ‘I Love You This Big’ and ‘The Trouble With Girls’ — sales haven’t slowed down since. He’s consistently at or near the top of the weekly country album sales charts.

On Thursday, the 18-year-old will take the stage as an opener for Brad Paisley for the first time, and his mom has been keeping her nearly 10K followers updated with pictures from her son’s rehearsals. The 2012 Virtual Reality Tour will last through early March.
