About Scotty McCreery
Scotty McCreery’s new album Same Truck is available now everywhere music is sold. It contains his fourth consecutive No. 1 single “You Time” and the fan-favorite “Damn Strait,” the second single from the album rapidly climbing the charts at Country radio now. McCreery co-wrote 10 of the 12 songs on Same Truck. He achieved new heights by earning three back-to-back No. 1 hits from his last album Seasons Change, the RIAA Gold-certified project which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Album chart: the RIAA Double Platinum-certified “Five More Minutes,” the RIAA Platinum-certified “This Is It,” which stayed at the top of the charts for two weeks, and RIAA Gold-certified “In Between.” McCreery co-wrote all 11 songs on Seasons Change, which Rolling Stone named as one of the “40 Best Country and Americana Albums of 2018.” All four of his previous albums have debuted at No. 1 on a Billboard Albums chart, with current combined sales surpassing 3 million copies. He’s earned one Double Platinum, four Platinum and two Gold singles; won the 10th season of “American Idol” in 2011; was named the ACM New Artist of the Year in 2011; won the CMT Music Award for Breakthrough Video of the Year (‘The Trouble with Girls’) in 2012; American Country Awards for New Artist of the Year in 2011 and Breakthrough Artist of the Year in 2013; BMI Awards for writing One of the Top 50 Country Songs of the Year four times (in 2015 for “See You Tonight,” in 2018 for “Five More Minutes,” in 2019 for “This is It.” and 2021 for “In Between”); a Carolina Beach Music Award for National Dance Song of the Year (‘Barefootin’’) in 2018; and the NSAI Nashville Songwriter Award for One of the Top Ten Songs I Wish I’d Written (‘Five More Minutes’) in 2018. The North Carolina native released his first book, Go Big or Go Home: The Journey Toward the Dream, in 2016; it was re-released in paperback in 2020. His song “Five More Minutes” inspired a popular movie of the same name which aired on the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Network during November-December 2021. McCreery launched his recording career by making history in 2011 as both the first country artist and the youngest male artist of any genre to debut his first studio album, the Platinum-certified Clear as Day, at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard Top 200 Albums chart.
As he turned to his next musical chapter, Australian-born country phenom Morgan Evans found himself seeking connection – and now, he’s totally plugged in. He teamed up with award-winning producer Dann Huff for his latest EP, The Country And The Coast Side A, and set aside his signature loop pedal to collaborate with a band of musicians for the first time in his U.S. career. For the project’s forthcoming single, “Country Outta My Girl,” Evans teamed up with Rivers Cuomo of the iconic 90’s band Weezer who offered his own perspective on the track with a brand new verse (LISTEN HERE). The EP builds outward and upward from the foundation Evans created with his debut album Things That We Drink To, which arrived Top 10 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and features the Gold-certified No. 1 debut single “Kiss Somebody.” Named one of Country Radio Seminar’s renowned New Faces of Country Music in 2020, Evans has forged a path as one of the genre’s most promising stars. He has been named to People’s elite “Ones To Watch” list, MusicRow’s “Next Big Thing” list and Bobby Bones’ “Class of 2018,” with additional recognition from CMT, SiriusXM, Pandora, Rolling Stone, Billboard, The Tennessean and more. Already established as a global country force, the singer / songwriter and entertainer has teamed up with Apple Music to showcase performers from all over the world on Country Wide Radio with Morgan Evans. He has toured with artists including Taylor Swift, Dan + Shay, Cole Swindell, Brett Eldredge, Old Dominion, Rascal Flatts and Chris Young in addition to sharing his own one-of-a-kind headlining show with sold-out audiences spanning eight countries across three continents.
