Scott McCreery is set to be the most successful American Idol star since Carrie Underwood.
The 18 year-old's debut album, Clear As Day, shot straight to the top of the Billboard Top 200 chart and Top Country chart when it was released this week.
McCreery is the youngest male in history to open at number 1 on the Top 200 chart.
He is also the first American Idol winner in eight years to land his debut album in that spot and he's the first country male singer from the show to do so.
McCreery told RadarOnline: "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."
