Platinum-selling singer-songwriter Scotty McCreery releases his much-anticipated sophomore album, See You Tonight, today, October 15th, on Mercury Nashville / 19 / Interscope Records. In celebration of the new album, McCreery will perform on several national TV shows in addition to hosting album release events in Nashville, New York and North Carolina.
McCreery begins street week with an album release party today in New York City at Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square - including an intimate concert by McCreery, signing and Q&A with the crowd. He will then perform on NBC’s “TODAY Show” on Oct. 16 and FOX News’ “Fox & Friends” on Oct. 17 before heading down to Nashville to continue the celebration at the home of country music, the Grand Ole Opry. McCreery performs on the famed stage Oct. 19 with an in-store signing with fans afterwards.
Next, McCreery returns to Raleigh, N.C. for a special homecoming album release event at the North Carolina State Fair on Oct. 21 and 22 before culminating the festivities in Los Angeles, Calif. with an Oct. 25 performance on NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”
“This album is a big step from the first one, and I can’t wait for everybody to hear it,” says McCreery, who co-wrote five songs on the project, including title track, “See You Tonight” (co-written with Zach Crowell and Ashley Gorley). Entertainment Weekly describes the current single as “fresh, youthful [and] romantic;” a great indication of what can be expected on the new album, which Rolling Stone calls “bright, polished pop country.”
McCreery teamed up again with Mark Bright (Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan), who produced his 2011 record-setting Platinum debut Clear As Day, and also enlisted producer Frank Rogers (Darius Rucker, Brad Paisley) for See You Tonight, resulting in 13 tracks of radio-ready music.
“We’ve been working on this [See You Tonight] for the better part of a year,” shares the McCreery, “so Tuesday has been a long time coming. With this album, I feel like I accomplished what I wanted to sound like and say.”
Including multiple fan-driven album release events this month was a top priority for McCreery. “All of my success goes back to the fans,” explains McCreery, winner of “American Idol” Season Ten. “I try to put in all of the hard work I can, but it means nothing to me without the fans, which have been there by my side since day one. It’s all about saying thanks to the fans.”

Former American Idol winner Scotty McCreery will launch his first headlining tour, the Weekend Roadtrip Tour 2013, beginning on Feb. 14 at Sands Event Center in Bethlehem, Pa. The 25-city tour will go through May. Currently, 16 show dates have been announced, with more to come.
“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.”
McCreery says the tour’s title was born from the singer and college student’s day-to-day experiences. “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?”
The tour will be sponsored by humanitarian organization World Vision.
