American Idol Winner, Scotty McCreery, in Concert at Six Flags Over Texas

Country music sensation and Season 10 American Idol Winner, Scotty McCreery, will take over the Music Mill Amphitheatre stage at Six Flags Over Texas on Saturday, June 15 as part of the MIKE AND IKE® Summer Concert Series. His performance at the theme park is part of his first headline tour, the Weekend Roadtrip Tour 2013, which stops at 25 venues throughout the country.

As the winner of American Idol, McCreery has quickly jumped to the top of the country music scene. In 2011, he won New Artist of the year at the American Country Awards and the Academy of Country Music Awards. His album, Clear As Day, topped the Billboard Top 200 and Top Country charts, earning him a spot in the Guinness World Records Book for being the youngest male in history to score a No.1 album on the all-genre chart with a debut release. Clear As Day sold over one million copies in less than three months, and the album’s first two singles, “I Love You This Big” and “The Trouble With Girls,” are certified Gold. McCreery is currently working on his forthcoming new album.

“We’re excited to have a talented singer like Scotty McCreery perform at our park,” said Steve Martindale, Six Flags Over Texas park president. “It’s always a great treat to our guests when we can bring a high-caliber act to our concert stage.”
