Scotty McCreery has only been a country music star for a few years now, but the 18-year-old ‘The Trouble With Girls’ hitmaker is already breaking records. On Friday (Sept. 7), the Guinness Book of World Records announced that McCreery is the youngest male artist to ever enter the U.S. albums charts at the No. 1 spot.

This morning, Guiness World Records tweeted the news to McCreery, writing “@ScottyMcCreery You’re in the new Guinness World Records 2013! Youngest male to enter US albums charts at #1!”

Attached to the tweet was a picture of McCreery in this year’s edition of the ‘Guiness Book of World Records.’

McCreery released his debut album, ‘Clear as Day,’ shortly after taking the crown on the tenth season of ‘American Idol,’ back in October of 2011. The young star’s first record was an instant hit, clinching the top spot on the U.S. Country, Billboard 200 and Canadian Albums charts.

Not only has the ‘Water Tower Town’ singer wracked up plenty of awards at the ACA, ACM and CMT awards shows, now he’s gone and broken a world record, too. There is nothing this wunderkind can’t do!

The new North Carolina State University student has to be the envy of everyone else in the freshman class.
