Scotty McCreery fans are eagerly awaiting the release of a new album from the former American Idol contestant in 2016, but they'll be getting a second new project from the singer next year: a book.

McCreery is set to release his biography, Go Big or Go Home: The Journey Toward the Dream, on May 3, 2016. The project will be his first book.

Go Big or Go Home follows the Season 10 American Idol winner from his childhood to his appearance on the TV singing competition to what things are like now in his country music career. McCreery worked on his biography with author Travis Thrasher, who has previously aided Jimmy Wayne and Thompson Square in writing books.

“God gave me a voice, and America gave me a chance,” McCreery says in a press release. “This book is about those two things, and about the amazing journey that began the moment I decided to say two words about this show I knew and loved: 'Why not?’”

McCreery released his newest single, "Southern Belle," over the summer. He's also spent the past few months out on the road with Rascal Flatts, on the trio's Riot Tour 2015.

“We’re just watching from afar,” McCreery tells The Boot. “We’re at the soundboard, watching the shows and watching what they’re doing [on stage], but also backstage — how they run their tours, how they treat people, what catering companies are good, what catering companies are bad. I’ve learned a lot.”

Go Big or Go Home: The Journey Toward the Dream is being released through Zondervan, a Christian publisher based in Grand Rapids, Mich. It will be available for pre-order on Nov. 15; more details are forthcoming.
