It's a great time to be Scotty McCreery.
The American Idol champion releases his debut album ("Clear as Day") in a week and has also just announced that he'll tour with country superstar Brad Paisley in 2012!
Cities, dates and other details will soon be released, but Scotty has Tweeted how “it’s really humbling that somebody like him would invite me to tour w/ him," adding: “I just hope i’m ready for any pranks he throws my way.”
Since he was crowned the season 10 winner in May, McCreery's exclusive Wal-Mart CD has sold 185,000 copies, and his first single, “I Love You This Big,” reached number 15 on Billboard‘s Country Songs chart. Far from shabby for the young artist.
