Scotty McCreery Announces 2023 Damn Strait Tour

Scotty McCreery just announced a 20+ date tour for 2023, dubbed the Damn Strait Tour. 

The country superstar revealed the exciting news of his tour via a press release on Monday (Dec. 12). The trek, which kicks off on January 20, 2023, in Hinton, OK at Sugar Creek Casino, will visit over a dozen states and runs through April of 2023. 

“Looking forward to hitting the road in 2023 with the Damn Strait Tour,” McCreery shared. “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!”

Scotty McCreery’s fan club presale will begin tomorrow, December 13 at 10 a.m. local time, followed by the general on sale this Friday, Dec. 16 at 10 a.m. local time. For tickets and more information visit

The tour takes its name from McCreery’s fifth consecutive chart-topper, “Damn Strait,” which stayed at No.1 for three weeks and also landed at No. 4 on the Billboard Year End Country Airplay chart along with being named among Billboard’s “10 Best Country Songs of 2022.”

McCreery’s current single “It Matters To Her” continues to climb the charts at Country radio and has reached No. 32 on this week’s Mediabase chart.

The North Carolina native released the deeply personal music video on Monday (Nov. 14). The clip, which comes in the form of a digital scrapbook, showcases his journey to fatherhood. The music video for the track features never-before-seen footage that the couple recorded got ready to welcome their first child.

From finding out he was going to be a dad, telling his dog Moose that he was going to be a big brother, setting up a nursery in his home with his wife, to welcoming his son, Merrick Avery McCreery, the music video truly captured the McCreerys’ story to becoming first-time parents.

“To me, the video shows off how much of a rock star Gabi was during her pregnancy,” McCreery previously told PEOPLE. “It also captures how much we both enjoyed getting ready for Avery’s arrival.”

“I wanted to really focus the video on Gabi and our preparations for Avery’s arrival,” McCreery added. “We filmed some of it over the course of several months at home in Raleigh when we were getting the nursery ready. We also filmed some of it at our place at North Topsail Beach. I think you can see in the video how excited we were getting for Avery to get here as well as how amazing Gabi was throughout the entire pregnancy.”

“Damn Strait” and “It Matters To Her” both appear on McCreery’s latest project, Same Truck: The Deluxe Album.

Scotty McCreery released the deluxe version of his 2021 album, Same Truck, on November 18. The expanded edition is available on Vinyl, CD, and Digital formats and features six additional new songs that weren’t on the original Same Truck album that came out in 2021.  The country hitmaker was a co-writer on all but four of the 18 tracks on the new project, which was produced by Frank Rogers, Derek Wells and Aaron Eshuis.

“I’ve been sitting on these extra songs that we recorded since we started the Same Truck project and I’ve always wanted to hear this album on vinyl,” he wrote on Twitter.


McCreery is gearing up to close out another landmark 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.
