Scotty McCreery’s Weekend Roadtrip

Scotty McCreery has announced the first round of dates for his late winter/spring excursion, “Weekend Roadtrip Tour 2013.” Launching in February, the adventure is the first headline tour for the 19-year-old “American Idol” winner.  

After winning the 10th season of “Idol,” McCreery put out his debut studio album, Clear As Day in October 2011. The LP, which features hits such as “The Trouble With Girls” and “I Love You This Big,” debuted at No.1.

“Idol” isn’t the only title McCreery has won. He’s also been crowned the American Country Awards’ Artist of the Year: New Artist and Academy of Country Music’ Best New Artist.

His sophomore album is due out later this year on 19/Interscope/Mercury Records.

But first McCreery will kick off his first headline tour.

“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,” McCreery said. “The 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.”
