Tuesday at 11pm: On tour with Scotty McCreery

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - If anyone thought his American Idol win would be the last anyone heard of singer Scotty McCreery, they'd have been sorely mistaken.

In the four years since he graced the Idol stage, McCreery's life has become a whirlwind of music, touring, fans and endorsement deals.  Still, though, he finds plenty of time to get back to his hometown of Garner, NC.

"North Carolina is home to me.  It is where my family and friends are.  It will always be home," McCreery said.

Just how much has his life changed?  McCreery invited WBTV's Kristen Miranda to follow him on the road at a couple of tour stops in the Carolinas.

You'll see her story Tuesday night at 11pm on WBTV but you can check out a quick preview now.
