Promoted by Live Nation, the dynamic entertainer also played in front of ecstatic fans at the Aztec Theatre in San Antonio on Friday, Nov. 30, and the House of Blues in Houston on Saturday, Dec. 1. The tour celebrates McCreery’s current album Seasons Change, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Album Chart in March.

Before his concert on Nov. 29 in Dallas, McCreery also gave an acoustic performance at an intimate KSCS Radio event hosted by morning DJ Hawkeye, which raised money for Cook Children’s Hospital.
