Following the early success of Scotty McCreery’s See You Tonight Tour, the Platinum-selling country star extends his first-ever headlining tour into the fall. The See You Tonight Tour originally kicked off in January making stops in over 50 U.S. markets. With his high-energy live show and allure of a seasoned showman, McCreery captivated audiences across the country, selling out more than 20 dates along the way including famed venues like Billy Bob’s Texas in Fort Worth, the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tenn. and House of Blues in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
McCreery is currently touring in support of his No. 1-debuting sophomore album, See You Tonight, featuring Top 10, Gold-selling record “See You Tonight” and his currently climbing single, “Feelin’ It.” Concert-goers can also expect to hear fan-favorites like “Trouble With Girls,” “Water Tower Town” and “I Love You This Big” off his record-breaking, Platinum debut, Clear As Day on Mercury Nashville / 19 / Interscope Records.
Joining McCreery on the See You Tonight Tour fall leg is Big Machine’s Danielle Bradbery. Seventeen-year-old Bradbery charmed her way into the national spotlight with her sweet, soulful sound and quintessential personality, winning season 4 of The Voice and seeing multiple performances reach No. 1 on the iTunes Country Singles chart. Bradbery’s self-titled debut album features the Top 15 lead single “The Heart of Dixie,” and current offering “Young In America.”
“The fans have really been incredible at all of our shows so far,” shares McCreery. “I’m excited to keep all the momentum going with Danielle coming out with us; it’s going to be great. We’re going to have a blast on the road!”

It’s easy to forget that Scotty McCreery is old enough to perform in establishments that serve alcohol but too young to imbibe.
“People think I’m older than I am,” said McCreery, 20. “I’m used to it.”
But it wasn’t that long ago that McCreery was just a typical kid immersed in baseball and daydreams. But that all changed when the laid-back Boston Red Sox diehard discovered he has a remarkable voice.
“I didn’t get what I had until I was 15,” said McCreery recently while calling from Hyannis, Mass. “It was a weird thing. I went like that from a tenor to a bass. It was surreal. My voice changed, and it changed for the better.”
Armed with his deep baritone and charm, McCreery won the 10th season of “American Idol” in 2011.
“It seems like such a long time ago,” McCreery said. “It was incredible. It opened some doors for me, and I’ve been all about taking advantage of whatever opportunities I’ve received.”
McCreery, who will perform Sunday at the Cotillion, released “Clear As Day,” just five months after he won the “Idol” title. The album, which includes such hits as “I Love You This Big” and “The Trouble With Girls,” took off immediately. The album sold 197,000 copies during its first week of release.
“It was a great start,” McCreery said. “You have to strike while the iron is hot. I worked hard and I haven’t let up.”
The Web.com Tour Championship, along with Universal Music Group, announced that country music star Scotty McCreery will be performing at TPC Sawgrass on Friday, September 19 following second-round play. The Web.com Tour Championship is the culminating event of the Web.com Tour season and returns to Dye’s Valley Course at TPC Sawgrass from September 18-21.
In October 2013, Scotty McCreery launched his second consecutive No. 1-debuting album with sophomore release, See You Tonight. See You Tonight’s Top 10 title track marks McCreery’s third RIAA Gold-certified single as an artist and his first as a writer. On the album, McCreery continues to showcase his bass voice while perfectly blending contemporary and traditional country to create an irresistible sound unique to the young college student.
Since his 2011 debut, McCreery has become one of country music’s hottest new stars with album sales topping 1.6 million. His Platinum-selling debut album, Clear As Day, made Billboard history by debuting No. 1 on the Top 200 chart – a first for a country artist on their first studio album and making McCreery the youngest man of any genre to open at the top of the chart. Clear As Day helped McCreery earn Best New Artist recognition from the Academy of Country Music, American Country Awards and CMT Music Awards. McCreery has played for President Obama, sang the national anthem at the World Series, performed in the Macy’s Day Parade, played for thousands from coast to coast, and has become a favorite of all ages due to the universal appeal of his music, his warmth, and his all-American values.
“As a golf fan, I’m beyond excited to come to TPC Sawgrass and play at the Web.com Tour Championship,” said McCreery. “I know it’ll be a fun stop on my tour for me, and for my fans.”
