Marking his first album in five years, country crooner Scotty McCreery’s highly anticipated album Seasons Change is available everywhere this Friday, March 16, and has received nothing but positive marks from some of the industry’s top influencers.
Rolling Stone declares that “Seasons Change is an album that melds McCreery’s traditional influences with contemporary sounds,” while Washington Post states that the title track “perfectly captured his last few years of ups and downs.”
Seasons Change features McCreery’s smash hit single “Five More Minutes,” which he released independently prior to signing with Triple Tigers Records, and pays tribute to his late grandfather. The single became McCreery’s first No. 1 hit, reaching the top spot on both the Billboard and Mediabase/Country Aircheck Country Airplay charts. The song which People calls an “emotional walk down memory lane,” also cemented RIAA Gold certification for combined units of streams and sales in excess of 500,000.
McCreery’s recently released track, “This Is It,” details his proposal to his high school sweetheart, Gabi Dugal, in the North Carolina mountains. It has already seen digital success on iTunes, where it has consistently lived in the Top Ten Country Songs alongside “Five More Minutes” since it was released on March 9, peaking at No. 3.
Seasons Change is the first album on which McCreery has been a co-writer on all 11 tracks. Other co-writers on the album include: Jessi Alexander (Dierks Bentley, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton), Monty Criswell (Eric Church, Darius Rucker, George Strait), Jason Gantt (Brooks & Dunn, Faith Hill, Alison Krauss, Tim McGraw), David Lee Murphy (Gary Allan, Kenny Chesney, Blake Shelton) and more. The album was produced by Frank Rogers, Derek Wells and Aaron Eshuis.
