Hailing from the great state of North Carolina, Scotty McCreery took home the top prize on American Idol‘s tenth season in May 2011. His first album, Clear As Day, was released six months later and has been certified platinum. McCreery has charmed generations of women with his deep voice and schoolboy looks, and that gravelly singing voice is coming to a city near you on the Weekend Roadtrip Tour 2013. Why is it called that? Well, McCreery is a freshman at North Carolina State University, and his classes all fall at the beginning of the week. Smart and talented, huh, ladies? The tour will feature songs from McCreery‘s first album, as well as brand-new tunes from his upcoming sophomore work. Running through May, the tour hits Albany, New York; Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania; Kansas City, Missouri; and Lancaster, Pennsylvania; wrapping up in Morristown, New Jersey in mid-May.
Fun facts about Scotty? He was the first American Idol winner to be born in the 90s – doesn’t that make you feel old? He auditioned with Josh Turner‘s “Your Man,” bowling over the judges with a voice way beyond his years.
