Country News

Scotty McCreery announced his 2023 “Damn Strait Tour” today (12/12), with over 20 dates in 2023 through the end of April. The fan club presale will be available tomorrow, December 13, at 10 a.m. local time, followed by the general on-sale this Friday, December 16, at 10 a.m. local time.

Scotty said in a press release, “Looking forward to hitting the road in 2023 with the Damn Strait Tour. I’ve enjoyed my time at home learning to be a Dad to Avery, but I’ve missed being onstage with the band and performing for the fans. Can’t wait to see everyone in the new year!”

The namesake of the tour and McCreery’s fifth consecutive chart-topper, “Damn Strait” (which stayed at No.1 for three weeks), also landed at No. 4 on the Billboard Year-End Country Airplay chart along with being named among Billboard’s “10 Best Country Songs of 2022.”

McCreery, who was just ranked No. 13 on the Top 50 list of 2022 Country Airplay Artists by Billboard, was a co-writer on all but four of the 18 tracks on Same Truck: The Deluxe Album. 

As the North Carolina native looks forward to his first Christmas as a father, Scotty has been celebrating the holidays as a performer on CMA Country Christmas, streaming now on Hulu and Disney+ and re-airing on ABC on December 13. Earlier this month, he was the spotlight artist for a sold-out Opry Country Christmas show in Nashville.

Hallmark Movies & Mysteries will premiere Five More Minutes: Moments Like These on December 17 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. It is the second film inspired by his 2018 No. 1 hit “Five More Minutes” and stars Ashley Williams and Lucas Bryan. The movie is not a sequel to last year’s Five More Minutes but has a brand-new storyline. McCreery once again serves as an Executive Producer, but he does not appear in the movie, as it was filmed during the last month of his wife Gabi’s pregnancy.
