American Idol Scotty McCreery Releasing Album In A New Way
The 'ZinePak – pronounced "ZEEN-pack" – will be on sale exclusively at Walmart beginning Oct. 4. It will be available in the music department, alongside the standard edition of Clear As Day. Fewer than 80,000 'ZinePaks will be produced, making this a truly limited edition.
"I am honored and flattered to be the first one chosen for a deluxe edition 'ZinePak," Scotty says. "It was a lot of fun working with Kim and Brittany, the editors of 'ZinePak.
"'ZinePak has lots of info and pictures no one has seen before. Mom and I spent some time going through family photos selecting fun pictures to share with everyone. 'ZinePak is a great way I can personally thank my fans for their support and let them learn a little more about me."
The Clear As Day 'ZinePak features his debut album and a 72-page mini-magazine that includes a feature article with Scotty and a fan Q-and-A, as well as lyrics and song notes from Scotty, behind-the-scenes photos, games and more. This deluxe edition also includes collectible postcards and a set of Scotty-themed baseball cards.
"The 'ZinePak provides a glimpse into Scotty's world," says Brittany Hodak, 'ZinePak president and co-founder. "Scotty was very involved in the creation of the magazine and bonus items because he wanted to ensure the package would be exciting and authentic for his fans. Many of the photos in the magazine are from the McCreery's private albums and were chosen by Scotty to be exclusive to this release.
"Working with Scotty was incredible," Hodak says. "He knows his fans have been instrumental to his success to date, and so he wanted to give them something special in return. There is no doubt his fans will love the package he helped create."
