SCOTTY McCREERY ANNOUNCES NEW SINGLE “YOU TIME”
Triple Tigers recording artist Scotty McCreery announces his new single “You Time,” set for release Sept. 23. The new track gives fans their first look at what to expect from his forthcoming album, the follow-up to his RIAA Gold-Certified Seasons Change. A release date for the new project will be announced soon.
“I am so excited about releasing new music, especially a song that makes me think of Gabi and puts me in a joyful mood. I think we can all use a smile right now,” said the singer/songwriter.
Written by McCreery with Frank Rogers and Aaron Eshuis, the up-tempo track is a bouncy love letter to wife Gabi with McCreery reflecting on both their busy work schedules and just wanting her all to himself. The song (and the upcoming album) was produced by Rogers, Eshuis and Derek Wells, who all produced Seasons Change. Fans can pre-save “You Time” HERE.
I need a little you time, you time
Red wine sippin’ in moonlight
Your touch, your skin
Your lips kissin’ on me all night
I ain’t tryin’ to monopolize
Your 24/7, 365
But sometimes I need Just a little bit of me and
You time, you time, you time
As the first act to welcome the return of live audiences to Ryman Auditorium, the multi-Platinum artist will give the debut performance of “You Time” tomorrow night to a sold-out limited in-venue audience of 125 fans in the ‘LIVE AT THE RYMAN’ series, a full-circle moment as McCreery’s sold-out performance in March of this year marked the last show by a single artist act to take place prior to the Ryman’s temporary suspension of operations.
‘LIVE AT THE RYMAN’ is a hybrid concert model developed by Opry Entertainment with input from the company’s official wellness advisor, Vanderbilt Health, designed to allow fans from across the country and around the world to experience live music from home while also safely and responsibly welcoming back a limited number of guests to experience the series in as local health regulations permit. Livestream tickets starting at $10 are available for purchase HERE.
“You Time” follows three consecutive No. 1 singles from Seasons Change, which debuted at No.1 on the Billboard Country Album chart, including: the RIAA Double Platinum-Certified “Five More Minutes,” the RIAA Platinum-Certified “This Is It,” which stayed at top of the charts for two weeks, and recent hit, “In Between.”
The North Carolina native is currently hard at work on his follow up to Seasons Change, which Rolling Stone named as one of the “40 Best Country and Americana Albums of 2018” and Whiskey Riff named it as one of the “30 Top Albums of 2018.” Taste of Country said Seasons Change “showcased [McCreery’s] growth as a songwriter and storyteller and his understanding of how and when to share parts of his own story.”
McCreery will also join WSM-AM and Circle Plus’s “Coffee, Country and Cody” with Bill Cody on Friday, Sept. 4 at 9:30 a.m. CT via Zoom to discuss his ‘LIVE AT THE RYMAN’ show. Cody will be moderating the Q&A prior to McCreery’s performance Friday evening.
Since mid-March, McCreery has already given nearly 100 live-stream performances ranging from Twitch Stream Aid, “Circle Sessions,” “Feed the Front Line Live, Presented by CMT” and numerous Facebook and Instagram Live events with country radio stations across the nation and media outlets, which he has dubbed his “Somewhere in Quarantine Tour.”

“I am looking forward to this show! I haven’t seen my band and crew since March, so it’s going to be a fun reunion for all of us,” shares McCreery. “I miss being out on the road and seeing the fans, but since we can’t do that yet, I can’t think of a better place to do a virtual show than at the Ryman Auditorium.”

Scotty McCreery Earns Third Consecutive No. 1 Single with "In Between"
Triple Tigers recording artist Scotty McCreery has earned his third consecutive No. 1 single with the reflective “In Between,” as the single reaches the top spot on both the Billboard and Mediabase/Country Aircheck Country Airplay charts. The track also makes Billboard Country Airplay chart history with a jump from No. 8 to No. 1, the greatest move to the top spot since 1991 when Ricky Van Shelton went from No. 9 to No. 1 with “Keep It Between the Lines,” making it the second-greatest move in the chart's history.
“Earning a No.1 record on ‘In Between,’ which is a song that defines me, is amazing. I loved writing this song with Frank, Jessi and Jonathan and telling my story,” said McCreery. “Earning three No.1 songs in a row is the perfect way to celebrate Seasons Change and how that album changed my life. I want to thank country radio for supporting my music, my fans for believing in me from day one, and both my management team Triple 8 Management and my record label Triple Tigers Records for always having my back and working side by side with me every day.”
“In Between” is the third single from McCreery’s 2018 album, Seasons Change, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart. It follows his back-to-back No. 1s, the Platinum-certified hit “This Is It” and Double-Platinum “Five More Minutes.” Produced by Frank Rogers, McCreery co-wrote the song alongside Rogers, Jessi Alexander and Jonathan Singleton over four years ago the same week he wrote “Five More Minutes.”
“Thanks to our friends at country radio for three consecutive No. 1 hits from this album, as well as their continued strong belief in Scotty and his music,” said Norbert Nix, GM and Partner at Triple Tigers Records. “All of us at Triple Tigers are so proud to work with Scotty every day. We know the depth of his artistry and it is gratifying to see that radio knows it as well. And folks, we’re just getting started….”
“Hitting No. 1 is never easy, but our Triple Tigers team is excited and proud every day to get up and give 110% to an artist like Scotty who always does the same to support us, our radio partners and his fans,” shared Kevin Herring, Senior Vice President of Promotion at Triple Tiger Records.
“Everyone’s not all one thing or all the other. We all have many facets to our lives and different things we enjoy. It’s about knowing who you are and finding what’s right for you,” shared McCreery. “I wrote ‘In Between’ about really finding that balance and being happy with it.”
The North Carolina native is currently hard at work on his follow up to Seasons Change, which Rolling Stone named as one of the “40 Best Country and Americana Albums of 2018” and Whiskey Riff named it as one of the “30 Top Albums of 2018.” Taste of Country said Seasons Change “showcased [McCreery’s] growth as a songwriter and storyteller and his understanding of how and when to share parts of his own story.” Rogers, Derek Wells and Aaron Eshuis, who co-produced Seasons Change, are co-producing the new album as well.
While following “safer at home” guidelines since mid-March, the multi-Platinum-selling artist has already given more than 80 live-stream performances ranging from Twitch Stream Aid, “Circle Sessions,” “Feed the Front Line Live, Presented by CMT” and numerous Facebook and Instagram Live events with country radio stations across the nation and media outlets, which he has dubbed his “Somewhere in Quarantine Tour.”
And the country music singer/songwriter continues to reach new career milestones. Earlier this year he hit 100 million views on YouTube for “Five More Minutes”– making it one of only eight official music videos for country songs that have reached No. 1 on the Mediabase / Country Aircheck Country Singles Chart in the last two years to achieve this distinction. In April, McCreery became the first country music artist to present a virtual concert in an online gaming world on Club Cooee, performing for two consecutive weekends.
