Scotty will perform on Today on Monday, Oct. 3. On Tuesday, Oct. 4, he will perform on Live With Regis and Kelly and appear on Today in the 10 a.m. hour.
GAC will premiere Introducing: Scotty McCreery on Oct. 3 at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT. GAC cameras have been following Scotty since June and have captured many important moments that have occurred since he won Season 10 of American Idol in May. The show also features interviews with family, friends and industry leaders who have played an important role in his personal and professional life.
On Wednesday, Oct. 5, Scotty will perform on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. On Friday, Oct. 7, he will perform on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Scotty turns 18 on Sunday, Oct. 9, so he is inviting all of his friends and fans to attend his Album Release and Birthday Bash Homecoming. It will be held on Saturday, Oct. 8 at 11 a.m. at the Time Warner Cable Music Pavilion at Walnut Creek in Raleigh.
Scotty will perform with his band during the event and also participate in a Q-and-A with a WQDR radio personality and answer questions from the audience.
Those arriving at the event with a copy of Clear As Day will be admitted to the event free, along with a guest, and copies of the album will be sold at the venue. Also, tickets can be won through local media outlets. All attending the event will receive a commemorative poster.
“It’s going to be a blast,” he says. “It’s going to be held at the venue where I’ve grown up watching country concerts. It will be so cool to get the album out there and sing some songs and have a good time while doing it. It’s my 18th birthday party. What better way to celebrate than at Walnut Creek?”
On Oct. 11, Scotty will perform on The Grand Ole Opry, which will be televised on Opry Live on GAC at 8 p.m. ET/ 7 p.m. CT.
