WENATCHEE — A year ago, Scotty McCreery pitched high school baseball, sang in the choir and cashiered at a local grocery store in his hometown of Garner, N.C.

Never mind that McCreery won the 2011 season of “American Idol,” then a month later, performed at the Grand Ole Opry.

His first album, “Clear as Day,” went platinum in three months and was the highest-selling solo country album last year. He even released a Christmas album last month.
