The University of Notre Dame has announced a new act joining this year's Idea Week innovation festival. The award-winning country singer got his start by winning “American Idol” in 2011.

Country music star Scotty McCreery will perform at Elkhart’s Lerner Theater on Idea Week’s Elkhart Day, April 10.

Other Idea Week headliners Jim Gaffigan at the Morris Performing Arts Center in South Bend on March 6, Michael Carbonaro at the Morris on April 9 and Tim McGraw at Purcell Pavilion on April 13. Idea Week is April 8-13.

“Idea Week is an innovation festival,” Event Director Nick Swisher said in a news release. “While world-renowned speakers like Bill Nye and Kevin Kelly represent the learning side of Idea Week, acts like Scotty McCreery and Tim McGraw represent the fun and creative side.”

Idea Week is hosted by the University of Notre Dame, the South Bend-Elkhart Regional Partnership and local community organizations and businesses. The event will include more than 50 sessions in four categories: Learn, Play, Meet and Compete.
