“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.

“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.”

“You Time is a love letter to Scotty’s wife Gabi

Written by Scotty with Frank Rogers and Aaron Eshuis, the up-tempo track is a bouncy love letter to wife Gabi with the American Idol season 10 winner reflecting on both their busy work schedules and just wanting her all to himself.  Rogers, Eshuis and Derek Wells, produced the song (and the upcoming album). The trio also 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
