What do you do when you are a college freshman and a Platinum-selling country star, balancing your second semester at school while managing your red-hot career? You become a weekend warrior. That’s just what Season 10 ‘American Idol’ winner Scotty McCreery is doing this February, as he launches his 2013 Weekend Roadtrip Tour.

The trek will be McCreery’s first headline run, after successful support slots for the likes of Brad Paisley. The tour launches on Valentine’s Day and runs through May, with Sarah Darling serving as the opening act.

The one catch? McCreery’s tour is only slated on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and/or Sunday nights, which fits his school schedule. The ‘Idol’ winner really is burning the candle at both ends, but he’s got both professors and fans to please! He will be playing selections from his forthcoming sophomore effort and the follow up to ‘Clear as Day’ on his roadtrip run.

“Right now, I’m balancing my music career with my second semester at North Carolina State University,” the singer, 19, said. “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 roadtrip?”

He’s got a point there! You’re only young once, and McCreery is making the most of his youthful energy.
