Country 'heartthrob' McCreery to mix hits, new songs at Strawberry Festival


Country music heartthrob Scotty McCreery says he has two reasons to look forward to performing at the Florida Strawberry Festival. First, it's a top venue for country stars, the 19-year-old said.
"Everybody said you've got to play this festival," said McCreery, who was catapulted to fame as the winner of the 10th season of "American Idol. "A lot of the biggest acts in country music have played there."  There's an added bonus, the baritone singer said: "I love to eat strawberries."

McCreery appears 7:30 p.m. March 8 at the festival as part of his first headline tour, Weekend Roadtrip Tour 2013. The tour's title is a nod to his current routine, attending classes at North Carolina State University on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and concentrating on music the other days.

McCreery, a freshman studying public relations, said it's been a challenge juggling school and music. "A lot of it is just catching up on my homework," he said.

"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 road trip?"  At the festival, the Academy of Country Music Artists reigning New Artist of the Year said he'll sing a mixture of his hits, such as "The Trouble With Girls," "Water Tower Town" and "I Love You This Big." He also plans to give his fans a sneak peek at some new music coming soon from his second album.

McCreery said he's grateful to "American Idol" for helping him launch a career that has led to almost overnight stardom. He laughs when asked about how he deals with being considered a heartthrob.
He brushes aside the compliment.  "They can call me what they want, but I still look at myself the same. They can describe me any way they want," he said.

World Vision is the charitable sponsor for the Weekend Roadtrip Tour 2013. The 63-year-old Christian humanitarian organization fights poverty and injustice around the globe.

Reserved seats to McCreery's festival concert are $25 and $30, depending on location. In addition to the reserved seats, there are about 3,000 free seats at each show in the festival grandstand.
