Scotty McCreery will perform his latest single, "Water Tower Town," on the March 29 episode of American Idol. That day marks the track's release to radio.
It is also McCreery's first time returning to the show to which he owes his career.
"That was my launching pad and what gave me my platform to do what I am doing now," he said. "I am looking forward to seeing some familiar faces and spending some one-on-one time with the contestants. I can't wait to give them some advice and the ins-and-outs of the competition that I learned last season."
McCreery added that the "Water Tower Track" is autobiographical.
"'Water Tower Town' is my Garner song on the album, my hometown song. It reminds me of Garner, which has a big water tower right across from the baseball fields where I grew up playing ball."
American Idol airs at 8 p.m. EST on FOX.
