Scotty McCreery has racked up his fourth consecutive No. 1 with his latest single “You Time,” the lead single from his fifth studio album Same Truck which earned the top country album debut this week.
Co-written with producers Frank Rogers and Aaron Eshuis, “You Time” follows McCreery’s three back-to-back No. 1s from the RIAA Gold-certified Seasons Change: the double Platinum “Five More Minutes,” Platinum-certified “This is It,” and Gold-certified “In Between.”
“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,” says 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.”
“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,” adds Kevin Herring, SVP of Promotion for Triple Tigers Records.
McCreery co-wrote 10 of the 12 tracks on Same Truck, which finds him reflecting on the last decade of his career and life. The next single from the album, “Damn Strait,” penned by Trent Tomlinson and Jim Collins, is one of the few outside cuts on the project.
