Country singer Scotty Mccreery kicked off he New Year in pain after getting his wisdom teeth removed.

The former American Idol champion underwent invasive dental surgery on Wednesday (02Jan13) and he warned fans to steer clear of his account throughout the day, admitting he will likely be posting incoherent messages while under anaesthesia.

He added, "Wheeeeeeew wee.. Feelin goood. Its gonna be a sportscenter (looped Tv show) and couch day for me. Bring on the yogurt/jello/ and most importantly, ice cream (sic)".
