The former American Idol champ reveals to Forbes that he just may become the next country restaurateur.
“I’ll tell you what, we could open up restaurants like that or something,” Scotty says. “I don’t know if it’d be a bar and grill, but it’d be something cool. Or maybe something sports-minded.”
Forbes recently released its list of the top-earning American Idol contestants, and Scotty cashed in at $4 million last year.\
His bank account could continue growing if he does, in fact, open his own restaurant, like fellow country stars Toby Keith and Rascal Flatts.
Scotty kicks off his Weekend Road Trip Tour February 14 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
