Country Star Has Tour Bus Troubles After Cedar Rapids Show
One of the perks of indoor concerts is that they usually will go on rain or shine; and in the case of the recent temperatures we've been seeing in Iowa, shows are going on even when areas are experiencing frigid cold. One country star ran into some issues after her show in Cedar Rapids.
Scotty McCreery is in the middle of his 2022 Same Truck Tour. The American Idol winner kicked off these shows in his home state of North Carolina on January 20th. This 15 stop tour is set to wrap up on February 19th in Beaver Creek, Colorado.
Last night, the singer took his tour to the Midwest and stopped in Cedar Rapids at the Paramount Theatre.
The performers to grace the stage before the country star were up and coming band King Calaway and award-winning singer Tenille Arts.
Tenille Arts has become a darling of country radio over the past few years with her #1 hit 'Somebody Like That.' The singer started to really garner national attention for the song after appearing on an episode of the hit reality series 'The Bachelor' in 2019.
While audiences were there to see Scotty, the crowd loved Tenille. After performing a great set full of original music and a few covers the star hopped on her tour bus and got ready to hit the next city.
However, this ride didn't go as planned...
Not too long after the concert wrapped up, the Canadian country star posted on her Instagram story. The heat on the singer's bus went out just around 11:00 PM. The temperature in Cedar Rapids at the time was -1.
The next stop on their tour is a show in Welch, Minnesota tonight. So, mix an overnight bus ride to Minnesota and those cold Iowa temps and you'll get a freezing few hours on the road.
An hour later, Tenille posted another story and confessed that the heat was still out on the bus. Luckily, some of her bandmates were able to give her some blankets.
