Scotty McCreery is now one of the most successful male 'American Idol' alums ever with new album

Everybody knows that Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson are the most successful contestants ever to step onto the American Idol stage, but who’s the top male contender to appear on the show? There are several contenders for that title, but Scotty McCreery definitely belongs on the shortlist. He lands his fifth top 10 album this week, as Seasons Change enters the Billboard 200 at No. 7. Only one other male Idol contender, Clay Aiken, has amassed five top 10 albums.
