While FOX’s American Idol may not be the pop superstar factory it once was, it is still acting as a successful launching pad for those smart enough to take advantage of it. Enter Caleb Johnson, last year’s winner, who is cashing in on his television fame and taking off on tour this May.

Kicking off on May 2 at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino, the Asheville-born singer will perform exclusively throughout the South–save for a show in Ohio and a show in Pennsylvania. The tour is in support of Johnson’s debut album released back in August, Testify, which features “As Long As You Love Me,” a song made popular by the hit TV show. The tour wraps on on May 27 at Lincoln Bar in Raleigh, NC. Tickets are on sale now, and a full list of dates can be found below.
