– Following the November release of Same Truck: The Deluxe Album, Triple Tigers recording artist Scotty McCreery announced the Damn Strait Tour with more than 20 dates in 2023 through the end of April.
The fan club presale will be available tomorrow at 10 a.m. local time, followed by the general on sale this Friday, at 10 a.m. local time.
"Looking forward to hitting the road in 2023 with the Damn Strait Tour," said McCreery. "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, RIAA Gold-certified "Damn Strait," which was number one for three weeks.
The current single, "It Matters To Her," recently premiered the official music video, offering some behind-the-scenes footage as he and wife Gabi prepared for the arrival of their son Merrick Avery. "To me, the video shows off how much of a rock star Gabi was during her pregnancy," McCreery told PEOPLE.com. "It also captures how much we both enjoyed getting ready for Avery's arrival." Both songs are available on "Same Truck: The Deluxe Album. "
McCreery is closing out the year with four remaining shows in 2022, including three acoustic co-headlining shows with Lee Brice. Both artists will be on stage for the entire concert, and they will trade off songs with each other, providing a more intimate concert experience than usual.

Dec. 15 Fort Smith, AR Temple Live (co-headlining with Lee Brice)

McCreery also is involved in a film coming on Saturday. Hallmark Movies & Mysteries will premiere "Five More Minutes: Moments Like These" on Dec. 17 at 10 p.m. eastern/Pacific. It is the second film inspired by his 2018 Double-Platinum certified number one 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 because it was filmed during the last month of wife Gabi's pregnancy.
