Congrats to American Idol season 10 winner Scotty McCreery who has scored his second No. 1 single on the country charts. Check out the official announcement from a press release below. The singer is getting ready to announce his third single from his Seasons Change album.

Fresh off of his headlining Seasons Change Tour, Triple Tigers recording artist Scotty McCreery earns his second consecutive No. 1 single with the romantic love song “This Is It,” as the single reaches the top spot on both the Billboard and Mediabase/Country Aircheck Country Airplay charts.

“This Is It” is the second single from Scotty’s 2018 album, Seasons Change, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart. Scotty, who married longtime girlfriend Gabi Dugal in June 2018, wrote the song with Frank Rogers and Aaron Eshuis specifically about his heartfelt proposal. Footage from their wedding can be seen in the single’s music video which topped the “GAC Top 20 Countdown” for multiple weeks. “This Is It” follows Scotty’s  acclaimed “Five More Minutes,” which reached the No. 1 spot last February just ahead of the album’s release and is nearing double-Platinum status.

“I wrote ‘This Is It’ for Gabi,” said Scotty. “It’s our song. I played it for her just an hour after I proposed. I sang it to her at our wedding. She’s who I see in my mind when I perform it on the road every night. Watching our love story become my second No. 1 hit is something Gabi and I will treasure always. I am so thankful to country radio and my fans who have stood with me from day one for making my dreams come true.”

The singer/songwriter wrapped up his headlining, 14-city Seasons Change Tour with special guests Jimmie Allen and Heather Morgan on January 26 in Westbury, NY. The tour saw multiple sold-out performances from Raleigh, NC to Boston, MA and beyond. “CMT Hot 20 Countdown” recently broadcast an episode filmed almost entirely at the Atlanta date on his tour.

Achieving one of the strongest first weeks for a country music album in the last year, Seasons Change moved over 40,000 albums in the first week. For the first time, Scotty is featured as a songwriter on all the album’s tracks. With themes such as losing loved ones, moving out on his own, falling in love and coming of age, Seasons Change is a reflective and honest narrative of the artist’s experience navigating life in his early twenties. The album was produced by Frank Rogers, Aaron Eshuis and Derek Wells.

Although the Seasons Change Tour has wrapped, fans can still catch Scotty on the road all year. Visit www.ScottyMcCreery.com for tour dates.
