Ya might recall that Brad Paisley had American Idol winner Scotty McCreery out with him about four weeks back when Brad wrapped up this year's tour. In addition to dragging Scotty into pranks, Brad also asked Scotty if he'd like to go on the road with him.

Looks like Brad's a man of his word. He's announced his 2012 tour and Scotty McCreery indeed is listed among the opening acts, along with The Band Perry.

That tour kicks off Jan. 12 in Grand Rapids, Mich., and it's called The Camobunga! 2012 World Tour.

"Camobunga!" you ask? Good question.

It's a combination of the words "camouflage"—which just happens to be the name of Brad's latest single—and “cowabunga,” which Brad defines as “a greeting by Chief Thunderthud on the ’50s cowboy puppet TV program The Howdy Doody Show [that] was later adopted by surfers in the ’60s.”

And there ya have it.
