– Scotty McCreery will hit the road, only this time he's undertaking a tour to support his first book.
McCreery launches a 14-city book tour for "Go Big or Go Home: The Journey Toward the Dream," which releases May 3.
"Go Big or Go Home" narrates McCreery's journey from a kid imitating Elvis on the school bus to winning season 10 of "American Idol" to building a country music career. McCreery shares a glimpse of where he came from and the impact his faith, family and friends have had on him. McCreery has put out three albums, but split from his label earlier this year.
