Scotty McCreery’s New Album Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard Country Chart

Scotty McCreery topped the Billboard Country Albums chart with his new studio album, Seasons Change, which dropped on March 16 and sold more than 40,000 units in its first week.

The 11-song offering was Scotty’s first album since 2013’s See You Tonight.

“It’s been quite a journey these last few years, and to learn that Seasons Change has debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart is awesome and so gratifying,” said Scotty. “I’m glad everyone is enjoying the new music. I am so thankful to my fans, who have always been so supportive. With a No. 1 album, my first-ever No. 1 single, and my upcoming wedding to the love of my life, I just don’t see how 2018 can get any better!”

The 24-year-old, who recently proposed to girlfriend Gabi Dugal, co-wrote every track on the new album, which also features songwriters Frank Rogers, Monty Criswell, Jessi Alexander, David Lee Murphy and more. The album’s lead single, “Five More Minutes,” became Scotty’s first No. 1 single when it hit the top of Billboard’s Country Airplay chart in March.

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
