SCOTTY McCREERY RELEASES MUCH-ANTICIPATED NEW SINGLE “IN BETWEEN” TO COUNTRY RADIO
The growing momentum behind the career of Scotty McCreery continues as the chart-topping country artist releases his new single “In Between” to country radio. The song serves as the third single from his wildly-successful album Seasons Change, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and spawned number one hits “Five More Minutes” and “This is It,” the latter holding the No. 1 spot for two consecutive weeks. The album was produced by Frank Rogers, Aaron Eshuis and Derek Wells.
“For me, the theme of ‘In Between’ is all about balance,” says McCreery about the addictive new song. “Everyone’s not all one thing or all the other. We all have many facets to our lives. It’s about knowing who you are and finding the balance that’s right for you.”
“In Between” is one of the top three most added songs at country radio this week. McCreery co-wrote the powerful song alongside Frank Rogers, Jessi Alexander and Jonathan Singleton over four years ago when he was still in the midst of just dating his now wife Gabi.
“I wrote it the very same week as we wrote ‘Five More Minutes,’” McCreery reveals. “I find it a bit funny because I wrote the lyric ‘I ain’t ready for a ring on my hand’ back then, and now when it’s my current single, I am a newly married man. But ‘In Between’ tells the story of where I was in my life at that moment, and I think that’s what makes it so personal to me.”
Taste of Country is already calling the song the ultimate ‘pivot point’ of McCreery’s career. “It’s the song that closes one extended chapter and begins another as he begins a new personal chapter with a wife and (someday) kids,” Billy Dukes writes.
McCreery married his longtime love Gabi in June 2018, with their engagement and wedding ultimately inspiring his latest number one hit “This Is It.” In fact, footage from their wedding day was showcased in the song’s music video, which now has been viewed over 40 million times and recently landed in the number one spot on “CMT’s Hot 20 Countdown.”

Scotty McCreery Celebrates Chart-Topping Success of “This is It” off Seasons Change Album
Last night Triple Tigers recording artist Scotty McCreery celebrated his chart topping single, “This Is It,” in Nashville with friends, family, colleagues and media in attendance at an industry celebration hosted by ASCAP and BMI. "This Is It" is McCreery's second ever No. 1 and second consecutive No. 1 hit off his Seasons Change album. He was joined by fellow song co-writers (and two of the three album co-producers) Frank Rogers and Aaron Eshuis at the event where the North Carolina native received a plaque to signify the song's two weeks at No. 1 as well as RIAA Gold Certification.
"If you had told me a couple years ago we'd be here, I'd have told you, you were crazy. It has been an incredible feeling and an incredible ride," shared McCreery who went on to thank wife Gabi who served as the inspiration for the hit song."It is easy to write love songs about you baby...appreciate you marrying me and saying yes, otherwise this song might not have made it on the radio," the singer/songwriter quipped. "'This is not it' is not a great title.""This Is It" is the second single from McCreery’s 2018 album, Seasons Change, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart. McCreery, who married longtime love Gabi in June 2018, wrote the song specifically about his heartfelt proposal. Footage from their wedding can be seen in the single’s music video which took the number one spot on this week’s "CMT Hot 20 Countdown" ahead of last night's celebration. Their wedding was spotlighted in both People and The Knot, with the couple also featured on the cover of Southern Bride. "This Is It" follows McCreery’s deeply reflective and acclaimed "Five More Minutes," which reached the No. 1 spot last February just ahead of the album’s release and is nearing double-Platinum status.
"This is It" is also the first No. 1 song for Eshuis as both a songwriter and producer. It is the first No.1 song for Derek Wells as producer and his 50th No. 1 song as a musician. Wells was in Canada working on a project and not able to be present, but multi-No.1 hit songwriter and producer Rogers called him from stage, put him on speaker, and had the crowd congratulate him on his accomplishment so he could share in the day.
Achieving one of the strongest first weeks for a country music album in the last year, Seasons Change moved over 40,000 albums in the first week alone. For the first time, McCreery is featured as a songwriter on all the album’s tracks. With themes such as losing loved ones, moving out on his own, falling in love and coming of age, Seasons Change is a reflective and honest narrative of the artist’s experience navigating life in his early twenties. The album was produced by Frank Rogers, Aaron Eshuis and Derek Wells.Fans can still catch McCreery on the road all year. Visit www.ScottyMcCreery.com for tour dates. "In Between," the third single from Seasons Change, impacts country radio on April 1.
