Current “American Idol” champ Scotty McCreery‘s album “Clear As Day” has been certified platinum.
That means the country crooner has sold more than 1 million copies — and in just three months after its release.
“It means the world to me,” Scotty said. “It’s one of the highest honors you can get with your album and it’s a huge testament to the loyalty of country music fans and how great they have been to me this year. 2011 was absolutely an incredible, life-changing year for me. I want to say a huge thanks to the fans for this.”
The Idol winner has maintained some of his young modesty, despite his recent success.
“Never in a million years did I dream that the album would go platinum in three months,” he said. “Never in a million years did I dream that the album would go platinum. It’s wild! It’s going to take me a few months or years to really wrap my head around it.”
