David Archuleta checked in with fans on his blog at MySpace (@davidarchuleta) on Friday (November 21), thanking fans after his self-titled debut album landed at #2 its first week out, behind Taylor Swift’s ‘Fearless’ in the Billboard charts. The ‘American Idol’ season seven runner-up tells readers:
Hey everyone! I just wanted to thank all you guys for helping the album debut at number 2! That is so incredible and I just appreciate all the support you guys have shown for that! It’s really neat to know that you’re all still doing the things you do :). But really thanks so much! Having an album out there can actually be kinda scary when you put something out there and expose all your work to the open haha. But I’m really glad to have this experience and learn so much from it.
I also just wanted to let you guys know really quick that I had enough time this week to work on my scouting! I tried to do as much as I could earlier this week while I had some time off since I was home for a few days. And then.. I had my eagle project yesterday! I got a bunch of friends together to help me plant some small trees and shrubs at a park, and we planted 180 plants. I’m so excited about this guys! I didn’t think I’d ever have the time this year to work on my scouting, but we pushed for it. Completing this is a really big thing for me, especially since I was wondering if I’d even be able to get it haha. But I’ll let you know when I get everything wrapped up with that.
