Scotty McCreery announces plans to continue his successful streak of shows into 2024 with his headlining Cab in a Solo Tour.
Inspired by his current single of the same name, the upcoming trek, produced by Live Nation, will kick-off at Hobart Arena in Troy, OH on Jan. 26, 2024, and continue across the U.S. with stops in Atlanta, Philadelphia, Boston and more.
“I’m on the road year ‘round, but I always love putting together specific tours and I think next year’s Cab in a Solo Tour is gonna be one of my favorites,” McCreery shared in a recent statement.
McCreery will be joined by Anne Wilson as direct support as well as Greylan James and Noah Hicks on select dates. In addition, he teased that the brand-new setlist could include a few unreleased tunes from his forthcoming, yet-to-be-announced album.
“Happy to have Anne Wilson join us on the road – she’s a great singer,” he continued. “Depending on the city, either Greylan James or Noah Hicks will be opening up the show and they’re both fantastic performers. And who knows, maybe I’ll share a few songs from my upcoming new album! I’m looking forward to it!”
This news comes on the heels of the American Idol alum celebrating a string of milestones. On October 9, he celebrated his 30th birthday alongside his wife, Gabi McCreery, and their baby boy, Merrick Avery McCreery, and prior to that, he performed for a record-breaking crowd of over 92,000.
Written by McCreery, Frank Rogers and Brent Anderson and produced by Rogers, Derek Wells, and Aaron Eshuis, “Cab In A Solo” made a major impact at Country radio on Monday (Aug. 21). Upon its debut on airwaves, it accumulated a staggering 120 first-week adds from radio stations spanning the United States.
The track received the most first-week adds of McCreery’s career as well as the largest first week for his label Triple Tigers and the third biggest add day of the year.
The overwhelming response from the radio community not only highlights the song’s instant appeal but also underscores Scotty McCreery’s ongoing ability to captivate audiences.
Upon hearing the news, the North Carolina native shared his humble reaction to reaching this milestone.
“Wow! I’ve been doing this now for twelve years, and this is the largest add week I’ve ever had and it’s the first time I’ve had the most added song on my first week,” McCreery shared in a statement. “Thank you country radio for all your support both now and through the years, and thanks to the Triple Tigers promotion team. I’ll be drinking cab in a solo tonight!”
As McCreery previously explained, the tune came to fruition during a writing retreat in his home state.
“I brought several of my writer buddies to the mountains of North Carolina for a few days to write songs, and that’s where ‘Cab in a Solo’ was born,” McCreery recalled in a press release. “This song is pure country. I’m excited to share it with everyone.”
Throughout the nostalgia-laced melody, McCreery illustrates the story of a man who witnesses his ex moving on with someone new after a failed attempt to win her over once again.
“Sittin’ here, I can’t believe what I just saw / Couple shadows kissin’ on the bedroom wall / It’s lookin’ like my plan didn’t work out at all / Heartbreak turned into broke up / So now I’m findin’ out how a heartbreak taste / With a Silver Oak, 1998 / Drinkin’ cab in a solo / Solo in the cab of my truck,” he sings on the chorus.
“Cab In A Solo” serves as a follow-up to the singer/songwriter’s five consecutive hits, which include “Damn Strait,” “You Time,” “Five More Minutes,” “This Is It” and “In Between.” This song marks the first taste of new music from McCreery since the release of his 2021 album Same Truck, and is expected to appear on his next project.
Following his run on the Brooks & Dunn REBOOT Tour 2023 earlier this year, Scotty McCreery embarked on his current headlining tour, which includes over 25 dates throughout the fall. He will next take the stage on Thursday, Oct. 12 in Flint, MI and continue with a variety of shows until wrapping up with his final show of the year on December 8 in Ottumwa, IA.
After enjoying some time off to spent with his family, McCreery will start things back up again in the new year with his Cab in a Solo Tour.
