Scotty McCreery is closing in on the Number One spot on the country charts with his latest single, "This Is It." The former American Idol winner scored his very first chart-topper last year with "Five More Minutes," and both are songs that he wrote.
Scotty tells us that the possibility of claiming his second Number One hit is very exciting: ["I'm pumped! I'm very superstitious so, you know, if it were to happen it'd be awesome. It'd be back-to-back. I've never had one, let alone two, especially with such personal songs. 'Five More Minutes' was deeply personal and 'This Is It' is me and Gabi's engagement and wedding song. I sang it to her on our wedding night. I never knew it would make the album let alone make the radio, but it's pretty cool that folks have identified and connected with it like they have, so it's pretty awesome."] SOUNDCUE (:27 OC: . . . it's pretty awesome.)
"This Is It" and "Five More Minutes" are both on Scotty's 2018 album, Seasons Change.
He continues on the road, playing on Saturday (January 26th) in Westbury, NY.
