The singer made a stop in Cedar Rapids on Thursday, February 3rd. He said that being out on tour was,

"A heck of a lot better than a zoom concert!"

McCreery was joined by King Calway and up and comer Tenille Arts.

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 stop of the tour; Minnesota.

However, this ride didn't go as smoothly or as warmly as they'd like. The heat on the singer's bus went out just around 11:00 PM that evening. That Thursday night in Cedar Rapids, the temperatures were reaching -2 degrees.

The 'Five More Minutes' singer is currently traveling the country for his 2022 Same Truck Tour. This 15 stop tour included a Thursday evening show at the Paramount Theatre. During the concert, Scotty McCreery gave finds a tease for an upcoming project of his.

His latest single 'Damn Strait' is an homage to the country sound McCreery heard growing up. The Idol winner admitted that one of the very first shows he saw was George Strait and Reba McEntire when he was a young boy.

"I was just a kid in a crowd wanting to be that guy on stage one day."

The track dropped last year, but there was no word on when or IF he would drop a music video.

Well, those worries were put to rest when he told the Cedar Rapids crowd that the video would be released very soon. McCreery said it would be coming out six days after the date of the show.

The official release date and time for the 'Damn Strait' is February 8 at 5 PM.

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.
