Since winning Season 10 of American Idol, Scotty McCreery has lived in a whirlwind. "We've been hitting the road, traveling around and playing shows. We've got 2 records out right now. It's been exciting for us," says McCreery.
That whirlwind most recently swept through the Heart of Dixie as the country crooner made two stops in Alabama, beginning with a Thursday night concert in the Rocket City, in the middle of finals. "We rolled in this morning. I'm in college at North Carolina State, so I've been finishing up a final paper all day. I'm just about brain dead," says McCreery.
Despite his success in the music industry, McCreery is still working on his degree, just finishing up his first semester at North Carolina State. But, that diploma isn't his only goal. "This last year, I've had an extremely blessed year. I've gotten the chance to win some awards. I've toured the country. Just seen how great the fans have been to me, but haven't had that radio song yet. So, that's what I'm looking for. That's the next thing on my list," says McCreery.
