Congrats to Scotty McCreery as his new album, Seasons Change, debuts at No 1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart – his fourth full album to enter at No. 1 on a Billboard album chart, selling more than 40,000 units in its release week.
“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 McCreery. “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!”
Seasons Change joins Clear As Day, Christmas With Scotty McCreery, and See You Tonight, all of which reached chart-topping success in their respective album release cycles. The album was produced by Frank Rogers, Derek Wells and Aaron Eshuis.
A No. 1 debut is not the first recognition McCreery’s new music has seen. The single “Five More Minutes,” which was released independently last year, earned McCreery his first No. 1 single to date, reaching the top spot on both the Billboard and Mediabase/Country Aircheck Country Airplay charts. The song has become the highest-ranking single of his career and is RIAA Gold certified.
Seasons Change, which the Tennessean called “an intensely personal album” is McCreery’s first record in five years – proving sometimes, things are worth the wait. Perhaps his most anticipated project yet, the album, released on Triple Tigers Records, catches fans up to where McCreery is in life today, and exactly how he got here.
Unlike his previous releases, Seasons Change showcases McCreery’s songwriting talents on all 11 tracks, featuring collaborations with Jessi Alexander (Dierks Bentley, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton), Monty Criswell (Eric Church, Darius Rucker, George Strait) and more. With themes such as losing loved ones, moving out on his own, falling in love and coming of age, Seasons Change is a reflective and honest narrative of McCreery’s experience navigating life in his early twenties.
Seasons Change features 11 tracks, all of which McCreery had a hand in co-writing, marking a first for the 24-year-old country singer. Each track on the album allows fans a glimpse into the different corners of McCreery’s life—with songs like “In Between” featuring McCreery’s favorite line about himself – “I ain’t all Holy Water and I ain’t all Jim Beam, I’m somewhere in between,” “Boys From Back Home” about McCreery’s real-life friends from North Carolina and his upcoming new single “This Is It,” a song McCreery penned two weeks prior to proposing to his fiancé as an almost-blueprint to how he envisioned the proposal unfolding. Seasons Change is a true reflection of where the North Carolina native is in life.
