Scotty McCreery Releases New Single, “Five More Minutes”

The phrase “the song remembers when” was definitely true for Scotty McCreery when he wrote “Five More Minutes” in 2015, a fan favorite that he first premiered on The Grand Ole Opry stage last year. In the song, a reflective McCreery recalls events ranging from an early date with longtime sweetheart Gabi to his grandfather’s final moments. He is finally sharing it with the world this Friday, May 5, through digital retailers (including iTunes and Amazon) and online streaming services.

“I’ve been performing ‘Five More Minutes’ in my live show every night for almost a year and it always earns a standing ovation,” said McCreery. “Fans have been asking me for months to release it. When Frank, Monty and I got together to write, we talked about all those moments we could’ve used five more minutes to say ‘I love you’ or ‘goodbye’….it poured out.  Now we can get it out to fans on Friday, May 5. ‘Five More Minutes’ on 5/5… it’s fate. And it’s my favorite song I’ve ever written.”

McCreery wrote “Five More Minutes” with Frank Rogers and Monty Criswell in 2015, two weeks after the passing of his paternal grandfather who serves as a major inspiration for the song.  In a few minutes’ time, McCreery takes the listener on an emotional journey through both the joys and sorrows of life, ending with a plea for “five more minutes” with his grandfather. The song was produced by Rogers.

The multi-Platinum-selling singer debuted the song on the Grand Ole Opry in June 2016 to a standing ovation and thunderous applause. A video of the performance was soon posted to the Opry’s YouTube channel, quickly garnering millions of views in spite of the fact that the song had not yet been released. The performance recently earned McCreery a Rare Country Award for Grand Ole Opry Moment of the Year.

McCreery made history in 2011 as both the first country artist and the youngest male artist to debut his first studio album, the Platinum-certified Clear as Day, at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard Top 200 album chart. He has gone on to see all three of his albums debut at No. 1 on a Billboard album chart, with current sales nearing 3 million copies. In addition to receiving both a Platinum and Gold album, he’s earned one Gold single and three Platinum singles, and achieved two Top Ten hits with “Feelin’ It” and “See You Tonight.” The latter song earned McCreery both his first BMI Award for writing one of the Top 50 Country Songs of 2015 and his first Music Row No. 1 Challenge Coin. He was named the ACM New Artist of the Year Award in 2011, won the CMT Music Award for Breakthrough Video of the Year (“The Trouble with Girls”) in 2012; and American Country Awards for new Artist of the Year in 2011 and Breakthrough Artist of the Year in 2013. In 2016, McCreery released his first book, Go Big or Go Home: The Journey Toward the Dream.  For more information and his current tour schedule, visit www.ScottyMcCreery.com.

Mercury Nashville / 19 / Interscope Records artist Scotty McCreery performed a fundraising concert at the Toyota Oakdale in Wallingford, CT last night that raised $60,000 for the 12.14 Foundation.  Their mission is to develop programs that help children gain confidence, inspiration and skills to rise above and ultimately go beyond even the most horrific events.  The programs will be an innovative combination of exploration of the arts, and a coherent, evidence based personal development strategy.  The organization’s long-term goal is to build a special center to house these multi-disciplinary educational programs, including a performing arts center, which will be based in Newtown, but its doors will be open to benefit people nationwide. The center will honor those lost on December 14, 2012, while providing a venue that supports many forms of healing and forward-looking positive change.
