Scotty McCreery Launches His First Ever Headlining Tour for 2013! It’s only been a little under two years since Scotty McCreery won American Idol, but he’s already prepared to strike out completely on his own! The country music newbie will be launching his first ever headlining tour in just under a month! The Weekend Roadtrip Tour 2013 is sponsored by humanitarian organization World Vision, and will kick off on February 14th in Bethlehem, PA making stops in 25 different cities. McCreery is quick to acknowledge the stars that have helped him get where is right now, and also wants fans to know that he has a lot in store for them. “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 McCreery The still-new-to-college student has been balancing his career with his studies, and so the tour’s name shouldn’t come as a surprise! “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 roadtrip?” -Scotty McCreery I have a feeling that there are a whole lot of Scotty McCreery fans that are going to be over the moon about this tour!

Tim McGraw Brings Out Scotty McCreery at SC “Brothers of the Son” Tour Stop. Okay, so we all know that Scotty McCreery has been launched into stardom because of American Idol. Yes, its possible we would of heard about him eventually…but it would have been a completely different story. Now, we all have our opinions about this young man (and let’s be honest, everyone who performs on that show…), but I’ve got to say, that he must have made some kind of an impression if all these country music veterans are so willingly performing with him left and right. Not only has Scotty been on tour with Brad Paisley‘s 2012 international Virtual Reality Tour, but now the still very young star is making cameos on the Brothers of the Sun Tour. Over the weekend at the South Carolina tour stop, Tim McGraw brought McCreery out to perform classic “I Like, I Love It“…and the crowd clearly ate that right up. This tour has been highly anticipated by country music fans, and it is a really big deal for Scotty to get to be involved with it (on top of everything else he is getting to do…). You can check out the fan video below…but you’ll have to turn it up a bit as it is a little hard to hear over the screaming girls. Scotty McCreery Sings Tim McGraw’s “I Like, I Love It”.
