Scotty McCreery announces first headlining tour
American Idol winner Scotty McCreery has finally made plans for his first-ever headlining tour! The Carolina native will hit the road on his “Weekend Roadtrip Tour 2013″ to 25 cities in the United States. The tour kicks off on Valentine’s Day, February 14th, in Bethlehem, PA. Black River Entertainment’s Sarah Darling will join Scotty on the tour, and World Vision will serve as the charity of his tour.
Scotty is relying on his experience with Brad Paisley and his friends in country music. He shares:
“I’ve been lucky enough to play a lot of great cities over the last year with Brad Paisley and some other great country artists. This time, I get to play some new places with a show that’s all my own. I can’t wait for my fans to see what we’ve lined up for them on my Weekend Roadtrip tour 2013.”
Scotty will include some brand new material on the tour from his upcoming album due out later this year. He’s currently working on the record, but promises fans will hear it first during his tour.
He explains why 2013 might be his busiest year yet:
“Right now, I’m balancing my music career with my second semester at North Carolina State University. I go to school early in the week and get to play my music every weekend. So, calling this tour the Weekend Roadtrip tour just made sense. Plus, what college student doesn’t love a good road trip?
