Scotty McCreery Won't Major in Music at College

Idol winner says he'll probably study marketing or communications instead.

Ya know Scotty McCreery, 18, is off to North Carolina State University in the fall.

So what will the American Idol winner-turned-country star be studying?

One thing's for sure, he won't be majoring in music.

"Because I’m learning about music every day and I’m in music class all the time as an 18-year-old," Scotty tells thecountryvibe.com.

Instead, Scotty is thinking about major in communications or marketing.

Scotty tells the website that college is important so that he can have balance in his life.

"I’m not ever gonna be that guy that’s out there working 365 days a year,” says Scotty.  “I care about my family and my home life and this all happened to me so quick I think it’s important for me to get in slowly and work my way in. And so right now we have that balance. It’s working good in high school and college will be a whole other monster."
