American Idol alum Scotty McCreery new single “Cab in a Solo” is #1 most added song on country radio this week

Scotty McCreery’s latest single “Cab in a Solo” was the most added song of the week on country radio this week.

With 120 stations reporting, the track received the most first-week adds of the American Idol season 10 winner’s career, as well as the largest first-week showing for his label, Triple Tigers, and the third biggest add-day of the year.

“Wow! I’ve been doing this now for twelve years, and this is the largest add week I’ve ever had and it’s the first time I’ve had the most added song on my first week,” Scotty said in a press statement. “Thank you country radio for all your support both now and through the years, and thanks to the Triple Tigers promotion team. I’ll be drinking cab in a solo tonight!”

Written by McCreery, Frank Rogers and Brent Anderson and produced by Rogers, Derek Wells, and Aaron Eshuis, “Cab in a Solo” offers the first taste of new music from the singer since the release of his 2021 album Same Truck.

“I brought several of my writer buddies to the mountains of North Carolina for a few days to write songs, and that’s where ‘Cab in a Solo’ was born,” said Scotty in a press statement. “This song is pure country. I’m excited to share it with everyone.”

Scotty toured with Brooks & Dunn this summer and is currently on a headlining tour

The new single follows the recent success of “It Matters to Her” the fastest climbing single of Scotty’s career. The singer/songwriter has earned five consecutive No. 1 hits in the last few years including RIAA Platinum-certified No. 1 “Damn Strait” and RIAA Gold-certified No. 1 “You Time,” all found on Same Truck: The Deluxe Album.
