Movie on December 17, Inspired by McCreery’s Hit Song
Triple Tigers recording artist Scotty McCreery debuted the official music video for his current single “It Matters to Her” today on People.com. The song, which is rising up the country airplay charts, follows his five consecutive No. 1 hits, including his recent three-week No. 1, RIAA- Gold certified smash “Damn Strait.”
“It Matters to Her” can be found on McCreery’s Same Truck: The Deluxe Album, which will be available this Friday, Nov. 18 on vinyl, CD and digital, and includes six additional new songs not found on the original album that came out last year, including the recently released tracks “Nothin’ Right” and “Small Town Stories.”
The “It Matters to Her” video was filmed in North Carolina and directed by Austin, Texas-based filmmaker Jeff Ray, who has directed four other McCreery music videos (“Five More Minutes,” “This is It,” “In Between,” and “Damn Strait”). Written by McCreery, Rhett Akins, and Lee Thomas Miller, the song was produced by Frank Rogers, Derek Wells, and Aaron Eshuis.
“I wanted to really focus the video on Gabi and our preparations for Avery’s arrival,” said McCreery. “We filmed some of it over the course of several months at home in Raleigh when we were getting the nursery ready. We also filmed some of it at our place at North Topsail Beach. I think you can see in the video how excited we were getting for Avery to get here as well as how amazing Gabi was throughout the entire pregnancy.”
The new dad will return to the road after paternity leave on Nov. 30 when he headlines the National Finals Rodeo’s Downtown Hoedown on Fremont Street in Las Vegas, Nevada. His performance schedule through the end of the year is below.

The three dates featuring McCreery co-headlining with Brice will be acoustic shows. Both artists will be on stage for the entire concert, and they will trade off songs with each other, providing a more intimate concert experience than usual.
McCreery won a BMI Award last week for co-writing his No. 1, RIAA Gold-certified hit “You Time,” which was named one of BMI’s Most Performed Country Songs of 2021. His co-writers Frank Rogers and Aaron Eshuis received an ASCAP Award for the song in the same category.
McCreery’s No.1, RIAA Double Platinum-certified hit song “Five More Minutes” (which he co-wrote with Frank Rogers and Monty Criswell) has inspired a second movie on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. “Five More Minutes: Moments Like These” will premiere on December 17 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, starring Ashley Williams and Lucas Bryant. It is an all-new storyline and not a sequel to last year’s hit “Five More Minutes” movie. McCreery does not appear in the movie, as it was filmed during the last month of Gabi’s pregnancy.

In total, McCreery has achieved 5 consecutive No. 1 hits in the last few years, including the two mentioned above as well as an additional three from his last album Seasons Change, the RIAA Gold-certified project which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Album chart: the RIAA Double Platinum-certified “Five More Minutes,” the RIAA Platinum-certified “This Is It,” which stayed at the top of the charts for two weeks, and RIAA Gold-certified “In Between.” McCreery co-wrote all 11 songs on Seasons Change, which Rolling Stone named as one of the “40 Best Country and Americana Albums of 2018.” Four of his albums have debuted at No. 1 on a Billboard Albums chart, with current combined sales surpassing 4 million copies. With five consecutive No.1 hits to his credit, he’s earned one Double Platinum, four Platinum and four Gold singles; one Platinum and two Gold albums; won the 10th season of “American Idol” in 2011; was named the ACM New Artist of the Year in 2011; won the CMT Music Award for Breakthrough Video of the Year (‘The Trouble with Girls’) in 2012; American Country Awards for New Artist of the Year in 2011 and Breakthrough Artist of the Year in 2013; BMI Awards for writing One of the Top 50 Country Songs of the Year five times (in 2015 for “See You Tonight,” in 2018 for “Five More Minutes,” in 2019 for “This is It,” and 2021 for “In Between,” and in 2022 for “You Time”); a Carolina Beach Music Award for National Dance Song of the Year (‘Barefootin’’) in 2018; the NSAI Nashville Songwriter Award for One of the Top Ten Songs I Wish I’d Written (‘Five More Minutes’) in 2018; and the Randy Owen Angels Among Us Award from St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in 2022.

McCreery launched his recording career by making history in 2011 as both the first country artist and the youngest male artist of any genre to debut his first studio album, the Platinum-certified Clear as Day, at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard Top 200 Albums chart.
