Angie Johnson Joins Scotty McCreery’s 2013 Weekend Roadtrip Tour
Every great artist needs a great touring partner. Lucky for Scotty McCreery, he found one in Angie Johnson.
Johnson is a newcomer to the country music scene, who was initially discovered when a video of her singing Adele's 'Rolling in the Deep' on a military base in the Middle East went viral. Carson Daly discovered the clip and invited Johnson to try out for NBC's 'The Voice,' where she became a contestant for Cee Lo Green.
Although she didn't take home first prize on 'The Voice' (thanks to winner Danielle Bradbery), Johnson managed to score a lot of media exposure -- and a record deal with Sony Nashville.
She'll join McCreery's tour on Sunday (Sept. 1) in his home state of North Carolina, and it sounds like she couldn't be more excited.
"I just love Scotty's voice," Johnson reveals. "He's a real talent, and I'm super excited to join him on his Weekend Roadtrip Tour. I think we're going to have a blast on the road together!"
Johnson got a little extra practice singing in front of huge crowds when she opened for the St. Louis Rams' final pre-season game on Thursday (Aug. 29). Recently, the St. Louis native has been spending lots of time traveling to radio stations to promote her debut single, 'Swagger.' The tune has been the most-added single by a female artist for three weeks straight.
