Available Sept. 23, New Track Follows Three Consecutive No. 1 Singles
Debut Performance of “You Time” on ‘LIVE AT THE RYMAN’ Friday Night to Livestream and Sold-Out In-Venue Limited Audience
McCreery Currently at Work on Follow-Up to Gold-Certified Album, Seasons Change
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.
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.”
