Scotty McCreery is one of the brightest new stars in country music, but it’s the ‘Water Tower Town’ singer’s academic work that is bringing him some well-deserved attention these days.

According to Yahoo! Finance, the North Carolina State freshman is one of the 16 most famous college co-eds to be enrolled in classes this semester. The singer handles his double life with grace, but admits that life as a student is a tad more stressful than he had originally anticipated.

“I’ve been studying non-stop. But it was a lot tougher than I was anticipating going into it,” McCreery reveals of his journey in higher education. “When I was doing this in high school, balancing it all was nothing. But college was definitely a huge step. I’ve had to learn how to study again.”

The singer’s chaotic schedule is about to be elevated to a higher level as McCreery continues to work on his sophomore project, his follow-up to the 2011 platinum-selling ‘Clear as Day’ album. The process has been slow-going, but McCreery planned it out that way.

“The first one I did was a little rushed, I didn’t get to enjoy it or get creative with it,” he acknowledges. “This one we’re going to take our time and really make a good album.”

New music from McCreery is expected to be released later this year. The singer continues to tour when his schedule permits, having just announced his Weekend Roadtrip tour.
