News Update: Watch Scott McCreery perform You time on TODAY
Written by McCreery, Frank Rogers and Aaron Eshuis, and produced by Rogers, Eshuis and Derek Wells, the track has garnered more than 3 million streams since its release in September and is already climbing the charts with an additional 26 adds from Country radio today. “You Time” is currently being played on more than 90 chart-reporting Country radio stations to date. Billboard notes, “the first single from his forthcoming album bodes well for his streak of three back-to-back No. 1’s to continue,” while MusicRow proclaims of McCreery, “as always, he’s a country beacon,” and of the track “upbeat and romantic, this has a lot going for it.”
This fall, McCreery was the first act to welcome the return of live concertgoers to the Ryman Auditorium, where he gave the debut performance of latest single “You Time” to both a national livestream pay-per-view audience as well as a sold-out limited in-venue audience of fans in the ‘LIVE AT THE RYMAN’ series. This was a full-circle moment as McCreery’s sold-out performance in March of this year marked the last show by a single artist act to take place prior to the Ryman’s temporary suspension of operations.
Since that mid-March show, the multi-Platinum-selling artist has given more than 100 livestream performances as part of what he calls his Somewhere in Quarantine Tour, reaching tens of thousands of online viewers with each individual event, including his intimate Sessions Live Acoustic Concert Livestream last week where he performed for fans around the globe from the Lincoln Theatre in his home city of Raleigh, North Carolina. The “Somewhere in Quarantine Tour” benefit t-shirt is a perfect gift for Scotty McReery fans, as a portion of profits of this shirt are being donated to the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund to help those in the music community affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.
