Scotty McCreery’s “Five More Minutes” Inspires Hallmark Christmas Movie

Scotty McCreery‘s number-one hit “Five More Minutes” has inspired a Hallmark Christmas movie!

Premiering this November 20th on the Hallmark Movie & Mysteries channel, the story is about when a woman’s Christmas wish is answered in unexpected ways when her late grandfather’s journal turns up and reveals an untold romance.

It stars Nikki DeLoach, David Hayden-Jones and we’ll have more info to come as the premiere gets closer.

When it comes to the song, Scotty shares, “It’s just one of those stories about life kind of looking back on memories and moments that you kind of wish you had five more minutes of you know for me it’s the early days of fishing with the boys or playing ball and really I wrote this song two weeks after I lost my granddaddy Bill. And everybody has kind of got those folks that you wish you had five more minutes with to spend time with to talk to say something to, so, that’s kind of the story behind the song.”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
