Scotty McCreery’s breakthrough ws no doubt his winning “American Idol”.McCreery spent some time auditioning for the show, including Your Man, a song performed by Josh Turner, Put Some Drive in Your Country, a song by Travis Tritt, Hello, Goodbye by The Beatles, For Once in My Life by Stevie Wonder, Swingin by John Anderson, She Believes in Me by Kenny Rogers, and many others. Undoubtely, winning the show helped McCreery to boost his net worth considerably, as well as his popularity around the USA.

Scotty McCreery immediately signed a contract with Mercury Nashville for $250,000, a significant boost to his net worth. Scotty ‘s debut album was called Clear as Day, released in 2011 and premiered on TV,  achieved platinum certification from RIAA. The best known singles from this album are I Love You This Big, which sold almost 200,000 copies in the first week and entering the Billborad Country chart at 32, the highest for a first release, and The Trouble with Girls. His album Christmas with Scotty McCreery is a compilation of songs related to the theme of Christmas. This album received a gold certification by RIAA, and boosted the overall amount of McCreery‘s net worth.

In 2013, Scotty McCreery released another album named See You Tonight, and the partly self-written single of the same name  entered the top positions of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. Such recognition brought further revenues to McCreery‘s net worth, as well.
