Scotty McCreery works out 2013 itinerary
Scotty McCreery, "American Idol" Season 10 winner, has plotted a sporadic course across North America that gets started just a few months after his holiday release, "Christmas With Scotty McCreery."
The 19-year-old North Carolina native will begin the itinerary with a Feb. 15 performance in Niagara Falls, NY. The current schedule features 14 dates over the 10 months, including a March 8 stop at the Florida Strawberry Festival in Plant City, FL, and a June 29 performance at the Country Stampede in Manhattan, KS.
Ticketing information is available at McCreery's website.
"Christmas With Scotty McCreery," the country crooner's second full-length release, hit retailers in October and peaked at No. 4 on The Billboard 200 and at the top of the magazine's Top Holiday Albums chart.
The holiday effort follows his 2011 platinum-certified first album, "Clear As Day," which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 and Top Country Albums charts, making him the youngest man in history to open at the top of the all-genre chart with a debut release.
"I was really pleased" with the album's success, McCreery said in a recent interview with SoundSpike. "I never expected the way it really went out there and the fans, they treated us so well. I was blown away by the success it had."
