Leading up to his latest album Seasons Change, Scotty McCreery went through a series of challenging, yet meaningful learning experiences that paved the way for 14 honest tracks. The American Idol winner conveys the longing for moments he can’t get back on the impactful “Five More Minutes” and preludes the emotions he felt leading up to his wedding day on “This Is It.” But the record of personal observations was comprised during a dark period in McCreery’s career.
