Scotty McCreery will spend the first two months of 2012 on the road with Brad Paisley, but the rest of his calendar is beginning to fill out as well. The 18-year-old just added the North Carolina State Fair to his touring schedule. McCreery will play the Dorton Arena in Raleigh, N.C. on October 15, 2012.

Tickets for 20 dates of Paisley's Camobunga! 2012 World Tour are on sale now. Those shows begin Jan. 12 in Grand Rapids, Mich. and continue through early March. Tickets for the October date go on sale on Monday Dec. 5 at 11AM ET through the North Carolina State Fair box office. They're $25 each, and one will need an additional ticket to get into the fair.

It's unusual to have concerts for the state fair announced so far in advance, but fair officials wanted to make the show available to McCreery fans in time for the holidays. A pair of tickets fit in the stocking quite well ... much better than a deep fried Snickers bar or an elephant ear. This past week, McCreery got into the Christmas spirit himself when he appeared on ABC's 'CMA Country Christmas' special singing 'The First Noel.'
