'Idol' winner Scott McCreery playing the Rapids Theatre Feb. 15

Niagara Gazette — Platinum-selling recording artist and Season 10 American Idol winner Scotty McCreery launches his first headline tour — Weekend Roadtrip Tour 2013 on Valentine’s Day. The tour will stop in over 25 venues across the country through May. Sixteen dates of the tour have been announced with more dates to be announced in the coming weeks.

Niagara Falls is right at the top of the list as McCreery is set to play the Rapids Theatre on Main Street at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 15. Tickets are $27.50 advance or $35 the day of the show.

"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,” explains McCreery. “This 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."

The tour will feature hits like “The Trouble With Girls,” “Water Tower Town” and “I Love You This Big” from McCreery's #1 Billboard debut album Clear As Day, as well as, a few classic covers. McCreery also plans to give his fans a sneak peek at some new music coming soon from his sophomore album scheduled for release later this year on 19/Interscope/Mercury Records.

The Academy of Country Music's reigning New Artist of the Year says the concept for this Tour was born from what's going on in his life at the moment. "Right now, I'm balancing my music career with my second semester at North Carolina State University. I go to school early in the week and get to play my music every weekend. So, calling this tour the Weekend Roadtrip Tour just made sense. Plus, what college student doesn't love a good roadtrip?"
