OFFSTAGE: Scotty McCreery Scores A+ in Math

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and
out of the spotlight.)

Everyone already knows what high scores Scotty
received on American Idol. But did you know he is becoming kind of a math whiz? Neither did he. When he
got a 98 percent on a recent math test at North Carolina State University, he was kind of surprised. “I was pumped about that
because math is not one of my best things,” he
told The Associated Press.
Beyond getting good grades in math, McCreery is taking all his college courses toward his communications
degree on Mondays and Wednesdays (which allows him some free time for intramural football on Tuesdays) so he can spend the
long weekends touring or making new music in Nashville. And how’s that coming? “We’re still looking for songs because that’s
what the second album is about for me,” he said. “I’m going to be picking and choosing. Country music is about the songs.
This last year, I’ve had sold-out shows, I’ve won awards and stuff, but I haven’t had that huge monster hit yet. That’s a
song I really need to have.” Too bad there’s not a course titled monster hit songwriting at NCSU.
