Triple Tigers recording artist Scotty McCreery releases his new single “You Time.” The new track gives fans their first look at what to expect from his forthcoming album, the follow-up to his three consecutive No. 1 hits from his RIAA Gold-Certified Seasons Change. A release date for the new project will be announced soon.
”I am so excited to have new music out,” said Scotty. “I wrote this with Frank and Aaron at a time when I was on the road more than I’d ever been before, and I’d get home just in time to see Gabi heading out to start her shift as a nurse. I was craving some ‘You Time’ with her and that inspired this song. Of course, now during the pandemic, we’re having a lot of ‘You Time’ which I love.”
The song is written by Scotty, Frank Rogers and Aaron Eshuis, and produced by Rogers, Eshuis and Derek Wells.

As the first act to welcome the return of live concertgoers to the Ryman Auditorium, the American Idol season 10 winner gave the debut performance of “You Time” on Sept. 4 to both a national livestream pay-per-view audience as well as a sold-out limited in-venue audience of 125 fans in the ‘Live at the Ryman’ series. This was a full-circle moment as Scotty’s sold-out performance in March of this year marked the last show by a single artist act to take place prior to the Ryman’s temporary suspension of operations.
“You Time” Follows Three Consecutive No. 1 Hits
Prior to his performance at the Ryman, Scotty was surprised with a plaque commemorating “In Between” hitting RIAA Gold-Certified status on HLN’s “Morning Express.” “In Between” marked McCreery’s third consecutive No. 1 from Seasons Change and this weekend (Sept. 19-20) the song’s accompanying video hit No. 1 on CMT’s “Hot 20 Countdown.” The track follows hits RIAA Double Platinum-Certified “Five More Minutes” and RIAA Platinum-Certified “This is It.”
The North Carolina native is currently hard at work on his follow up to Seasons Change.
Since mid-March, Scotty has already given nearly 100 live-stream performances ranging from Twitch Stream Aid, “Circle Sessions,” “Feed the Front Line Live, Presented by CMT” and numerous Facebook and Instagram Live events with country radio stations across the nation and media outlets, which he has dubbed his “Somewhere in Quarantine Tour.”
