‘AMERICAN IDOL’ WINNERS: WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
The teen country crooner followed up his season-10 win with the album “Clear as Day,” which made McCreery both the first country star to have a debut album enter the Billboard 200 at No. 1 and the youngest man to debut at the top of the chart. The album has since gone platinum, and McCreery went to college in fall 2012.
