It’s duck, duck, cruise for Scotty McCreery…
The 19-year-old part-Puerto Rican singer and former American Idol champion is set to join a special cruise featuring the cast of the hit reality television series Duck Dynasty.
McCreery announced the news via Twitter this week.
“So here’s the news ya’ll,” started McCreery. “I’ll be joining the @DuckCruise with @DuckDynastyAE next summer! Gonna be tons of fun! Come out and sail with us!”
The A&E reality series follows the lives of the Robertson family, who became wealthy from their family-operated business, Duck Commander. The Monroe, La.-based company makes products for duck hunters.
A spin-off of the successful reality series, the Duck Commander Cruise – hosted by the Robertsons – allows fans to “get up close and personal” with the entire cast on a four-night cruise of the Caribbean.
McCreery’s announcement comes as no surprise. Despite embarking on his very first headlining tour, the “I Love You This Big” singer recently took time to perform at the Sweet 16 birthday party of Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson.
While at the Robertson home, McCreery also went off-roading with Sadie’s brother John Luke Robertson and sampled the cooking of their grandmother Kay Robertson, according to Country Weekly.
It was through Twitter that McCreery struck up a friendship with Sadie.
“The first time I met Sadie and John Luke was at the Opry in Nashville,” McCreery explained to Country Weekly. “I saw her tweet that said she was in Nashville, so I said, ‘Hey, you want to come to the Opry?’ I’ve watched the show since season 1 and we had exchanged tweets before.”
