Listen to Scotty McCreery on iHeartRadio

Scotty McCreery doesn’t want to be treated any differently than other students at North Carolina State University this fall. The “American Idol” winner returns to campus as a sophomore this year. 

While he could take online courses and be out on the road playing his music, Scotty prefers to experience campus life and only go out for concert dates on the weekend.

Students might find it hard to treat Scotty as anything other than a celebrity this weekend, however. The singer will perform Saturday at Welcome Week festivities at the school.

Scotty recently announced that he was extending his fall tour through November. His ticket sales have been great, and the singer is overwhelmed. He says to sell out shows as a new artist is really amazing to him.
