American Idol alum Scotty McCreery coming to Viking Hall

Country crooner Scotty McCreery, who won season 10 of Fox's hit show "American Idol," will headline a concert at 5 p.m., Oct. 27 at Viking Hall Civic Center in Bristol, Tenn.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 21.

“We are very excited about having Scotty in concert at Viking Hall," said Darlene Cole, the city's venues manager. "This will be his first show for his fans in the Mountain Empire. It really worked out in an odd fashion. We have Willie Robertson from A&E’s 'Duck Dynasty' coming in just a few days before Scotty. While working with Robertson, we found out that Scotty had been invited to provide the entertainment on their 2014 Duck Dynasty Cruise. It is a small world.”

The show's opening act is Angie Johnson, a Missouri native who served in the U.S. Air Force as an intelligence analyst before perusing her dream of a music career. Johnson was a member of Cee Lo Green's team during the second season of NBC's "The Voice."

Tickets are $53, $33, $23 and $18.
