lJf2ZOyVTriple Tigers multi-Platinum selling recording artist Scotty McCreery returned to Ryman Auditorium Friday, Sept. 4, performing in the ‘LIVE AT THE RYMAN’ series to a sold-out limited in-venue audience and via livestream. Prior to taking the stage that evening, he was surprised during an interview on HLN’s “Morning Express” with a plaque commemorating the RIAA-Gold Certification of the most recent of his three consecutive No. 1’s “In Between.”

“It was a fun surprise to receive a gold plaque for ‘In Between’ during ‘Morning Express,’” shares McCreery. “The fans are the reason why the song was certified gold, so I wanted to share the moment with them again on my livestream Q&A moderated by my friend Bill Cody.”

Last week, the North Carolina native announced the first taste of new music from a forthcoming album with upcoming single “You Time,” set for release Sept. 23, and gave the debut performance on the historic Ryman stage.

“Performing at the Ryman is always an honor,” says McCreery. “Giving my debut performance of ‘You Time’ on that stage is something I’ll always treasure.”

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.

McCreery’s return to the Ryman stage marks his second appearance this year. His sold-out performance on March 11 was just two days before the venue paused all shows with a live audience, where he was presented with a Gold album for RIAA Gold-certified Seasons Change.

“In Between” follows the RIAA Platinum-Certified “This Is It” and Double-Platinum Certified “Five More Minutes.”
