Scotty McCreery Headed Back to the Studio in December to Record New Album: “We Want to Be Ready to Go”

Scotty McCreery’s tour dates in 2019 may be winding down, but the North Carolina native still has plenty of work to do before closing out the year.

Scotty has four dates—Nov. 21, 22 and 23 and Dec. 14—remaining as part of Old Dominion’s Make It Sweet Tour, and then it’s back into the studio to record new music for his upcoming album.

Scotty had to wait almost five years between releasing his 2013 sophomore album, See You Tonight, and his 2018 No.1 album, Season’s Change, which spawned two No. 1 hits, “Five More Minutes” and “This Is It.”

“We’re headed back into the studio in mid-December,” says Scotty to Nash Country Daily. “We’ve got a lot of songs we’ve been writing and a lot of songs we’ve been sitting on that we’re excited about. So we’re going to get them in the can. The last record [Season’s Change], I had to wait five years between records. We’re not doing that again. We want to be ready to go.”

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

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.
