Scotty McCreery to Tour With Brad Paisley in 2012

Scotty McCreery has confirmed rumors that he’ll be touring with Brad Paisley next year. The ‘American Idol’ winner tweeted late Tuesday night, “so have yall heard the HUGE news! I’m heading out on the road with @BradPaisley in 2012!”

Fans at Sunday night’s Paisley concert in Raleigh, N.C. overheard the country superstar nonchalantly ask McCreery if he wanted to tour with him next year. McCreery nodded and Paisley said, “Great, I’m going to take you out next year!” Apparently invitations to play amphitheaters across the country come with all of the formality of one middle-schooler asking another the junior high dance.

“It’s really humbling that somebody like him would invite me to tour w/ him. I just hope i’m ready for any pranks he throws my way.. haha,” McCreery said in a separate tweet. He got a firsthand look at how crazy the pranks could be on Sunday night, as Paisley and the other H2O II artists were at each other all afternoon, and throughout Paisley’s set.

McCreery grew up just minutes away from the Time Warner Cable Music Pavilion at Walnut Creek in Raleigh. He was at the show as a fan, but quickly found himself backstage hanging out with Paisley. It seems likely that the two spoke about touring together before the show, but nobody knew it was official until the soon to be 18-year-old made it so on Twitter.
