On the heels of last week’s release of his fifth studio album Same Truckmulti-Platinum selling Triple Tigers recording artist Scotty McCreery earns his fourth consecutive No. 1 hit with lead single “You Time,” MusicRow-dubbed “upbeat and romantic” ode to his wife Gabi that captured the hearts and ears of fans and Country radio alike.
“This song, like so many of my songs, was inspired by my wife Gabi as well as my desire to spend more time with her in the midst of our busy careers,” said McCreery. “Thanks to country radio, my co-writers Frank and Aaron, to the Triple Tigers Records promotion team and Triple 8 Management, and as always, to my fans. I have missed you during this past year while the world did stop spinning, and I’m glad to be back out on the road to see you.” 
Co-written with producers Frank Rogers and Aaron Eshuis, “You Time” follows McCreery’s three back-to-back No. 1 hits from the RIAA Gold-certified Seasons Change: the Double RIAA Platinum-certified “Five More Minutes,” Platinum-certified “This is It,” and Gold-certified “In Between.”
“With the last 17 weeks in a row of triple digit spin growth at radio, ‘You Time’ has been a solid hit all the way up the chart,” said Kevin Herring, SVP of Promotion for Triple Tigers Records.
On Same Truck, the Garner, North Carolina native shifts his perspective to reflect on the last decade of his career and life with wife Gabi and dog Moose, co-writing 10 of the 12 tracks, with Tennessean sharing, “McCreery walks a sonic tightrope that leans into his country influences while not abandoning modern Music Row hitmaking,” while Billboard observes “McCreery's rich, resonant voice has never felt more confident and self-assured, and his voice as a songwriter is strong.”
The next single from the album, already a fan favorite, will be “Damn Strait,” which Rolling Stone named a “Pick of the Week” calling it “clever songwriting, delivered by one of the genres’ best King George disciples” while Billboard praises, “Another ace is the clever track ‘Damn Strait,’ a rare outside cut on the project, penned by Trent Tomlinson and Jim Collins, in which McCreery name checks several of King George's greatest hits.”
Same Truck was produced by Rogers, Eshuis and Derek Wells, the team who produced Seasons Change, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart. McCreery co-wrote every song on that album.
