Scotty McCreery’s heartwarming hit single “Five More Minutes” is the inspiration behind a brand new TV movie of the same name from Hallmark that will air Nov. 20 as part of their Miracles of Christmas celebration.
Written by Nikki Deloach and Megan McNulty, Five More Minutes stars Deloach and David Haydn-Jones as a woman’s Christmas wish is answered in unexpected ways when her late grandfather’s journal turns up and reveals an untold romance. McCreery serves as an Executive Producer on the new film, which airs at 9 p.m. CT on the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channel.
Released as the first song from his Gold-certified album, Seasons Change, the 2x Platinum “Five More Minutes” reached No. 2 on the iTunes country singles chart and No. 9 on the iTunes all-genre singles chart when it was released in 2017, and debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard Country Digital Sales Chart. The chart-topping track was penned with Frank Rogers and Monty Criswell.
“It was a special day writing this one” recalls McCreery. “We all sat down, and at first, I was just talking about my granddaddy. I always believed in it and thought it was a story that everyone could relate to—I feel like everyone has these things that they go back to and wish they had more time. We worked on this song for three or four different days, and a lot changed, and it took a while, but I wanted it to be perfect.”
McCreery recently announced plans for his 2022 “Same Truck Tour” across the U.S., as well as four new dates in Germany and the Netherlands. For tickets and more information, click here.
