Scotty McCreery to join Brad Paisley on 2012 tour


It's been a big year for Scotty McCreery, a small-town kid turned "American Idol" winner.

Less than a month after wrapping the American Idols Live! tour, the 17-year-old North Carolina native announced via Twitter that he would be teaming up with country star Brad Paisley to tour in 2012.

Paisley is no stranger to the road: As one of country music's biggest stars, he has had no less than 16 chart-toppers on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. The duo should draw large crowds and even larger ticket sales when dates are announced.

 I don't truthfully care for the idea. From what I have seen of Scotty all he is, is a voice. He doesn't seem too nice or heartfelt. It's like you get the feeling maybe he isn't always how we see him on the news? I don't know. I'm not saying I totally dislike him, just that I don't really think he's all that. His voice though, I will say nothing for it and nothing against it. Personality wise though, I don't really like him.


 Brad Paisley on the other hand? I love his music, and his work. He has some heart once and a while.


 Should the two do a tour together? Absolutely not. We'll see what happens.

Scotty has a great voice. IT's fantastic that he's going to tour with Brad Paisley. He's got such a grown-up voice but is still a kid. Hopefully fame won't taint him too much or burn him out so fast that he's gone before he ever gets started. Carrie Underwood was older and a bit more mature when she got her shot. She and Kelly Clarkson are basically the only super successful Idol winners. Let's hope it works for Scotty too.
