    With Scotty McCreery's Successful Debut, Did Universal Learn From Sony's Mistakes?

    Clearly, Iovine studied Sony’s experience with Idol, which has seen mixed results during its nine-year partnership (it expired after the 2010 season). For every multi-platinum success, like a Kelly Clarkson or Chris Daughtry, you can count two more finalists who flopped. But Wright says he only looked to one alum as an example: Carrie Underwood. “She did a great job embracing the Nashville community and I knew that was the key,” he explains.

    Well, Scotty certainly can't get any bad tips from trying to model his career after Carrie. He had a great debut, but it will be interesting to see if he lasts or not. Men do seem to do better in country music overall, but there are so many hot (literally and figuratively!) men in country right now that I just don't know if there is room for a kid like him. And he has no chance for crossover appeal, he's just too country.
    "Thank you for that ‘Captain Obvious’ sense of humor because you know what, we not only hit the high notes, you forgot to mention we generally hit the ‘right’ notes as well."

    Thanks so much Danielle!

    I think he will do fine but he needs to release an upbeat single next. Too many ballads in a row.

    Did Iovine really have that much to do with Scotty's and Lauren's albums?

    1. MONEY.

    2. Ability to get an airplay in country radios.

    3. Ability to coordinate "PUBLICITY CAMPAIGN" and "PROMOTION STRATEGY" with Ann Edelblute.

    4. "Universal Music Group" is the largest and the BEST DISTRIBUTOR - he can bring some long awaited PROMOTION HELP FOR SCOTTY - and at the right price ...... FREE!!! Iovine could shoulder much of the promotion of the record of Scotty. Iovine has established contacts and clout. He can "PUSH SUPPLY" to "Walmart", "Target", "Best Buy", etc. - shelve space COST MONEY, too.

    5. Iovine is now a BELIEVER of Scotty and "Ann Edelbute" will do the rest.
