Scotty McCreery's year is shaping to be one of many firsts. His current single, "See You Tonight," lifted from the album of the same name, becomes the singer's first Top 10 radio single this week, rising 12-10 on the Mediabase radio tally.
Last week, the breezy anthem became McCreery's third gold-selling single, shifting more than 500,000 copies. As previously reported, the track moved an additional 17,000 copies, end of the tracking week Sunday, February 9.
Previously, his highest charting single was his "American Idol" coronation track "I Love You This Big," which peaked at No. 15 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. Other singles include "The Trouble With Girls" (No. 17) and "Water Tower Town" (No. 38). "See You Tonight" currently sits at No. 12 on this chart, up from No. 14 last week.
This is McCreery's first co-write to achieve the upper tier of the chart, a song he penned with proven hit-makers Ashley Gorley ("That's My Kind of Night" by Luke Bryan) and Zach Crowell ("Cop Car" by Keith Urban).
The "See You Tonight" set bowed at No. 1 on Billboard Top Country Albums in October, moving over 52,000 copies. It placed at No. 6 on the all-genre Billboard 200.
