Scotty McCreery Releases Ode to Fatherhood with “Love Like This”

Triple Tigers recording artist Scotty McCreery is never one to shy away from getting personal in his music, whether mourning the loss of his grandfather with the triple-platinum blockbuster “Five More Minutes” or capturing the anticipation of proposing to your long-time love with platinum hit “This is It.” McCreery is getting personal again with the release of his latest track, “Love Like This.” Listen to “Love Like This” HERE and watch the lyric video HERE.

“Becoming a father is the greatest thing that’s happened to me,” shares McCreery. “Raising Avery as he grows and watching my wife Gabi be a rock star as his Mom has been the joy of my life these last 15 months. I knew I wanted to write a song about Avery. I even photographed the room number on the hospital door so I could put that into the lyrics.”

Written by McCreery, Frank Rogers and Aaron Eshuis and produced by Rogers, Derek Wells, and Eshuis, the ode to McCreery’s son Avery captures the boundless and indescribable love a new parent feels for their child.

     When I first laid eyes on you, that’s when I knew     

I’ve never known a love like this, I’ve never felt this way     

Girl, I think I might have thought I did     

But everything changed today     

‘Cause I’m looking at you, looking at him    

And I don’t have a clue what this feeling is   

 But watching you give our baby boy a kiss     

Now I know I’ve never known a love like this, no

“Love Like This” has already become an audience favorite on McCreery’s headlining Cab in a Solo Tour, which continues this Thursday in Brookings, SD with additional stops this weekend in Des Moines, IA and Omaha, NE. The upcoming dates follow three consecutive sold out stops in Troy, OH; Shipshewana, IN; and Durham, NC; and near capacity crowds in Atlanta, GA; and Chattanooga, TN. McCreery is joined by Anne Wilson as direct support as well as Greylan James and Noah Hicks on select dates. The tour, produced by Live Nation, will continue to trek across the U.S. through mid-March with stops in Boston, Philadelphia, Syracuse and more.

McCreery recently released the official music video for his current radio single, “Cab in a Solo.” The video made its broadcast premiere on CMT, followed by an airing on the Paramount billboard in New York City’s Times Square before making its online debut on YouTube with McCreery joining for a special live chat with fans. Watch the video HERE.

Written by McCreery, Rogers and Brent Anderson and produced by Rogers, Derek Wells, and Aaron Eshuis, “Cab in a Solo” is his fastest moving single ever, garnering the most first-week adds at country radio (120) of his career and continuing to move quickly up the charts, currently in the Top 15 on Mediabase and Top 20 on Billboard. Stream “Cab in a Solo” HERE.

McCreery also recently released new song “Can’t Pass the Bar,” with MusicRow dubbing it a “TGIF romp,” while Taste of Country observes, “fiddle and guitar drive a country throwback that would have fit a Brooks & Dunn album 25 years ago,” and Country Now notes “McCreery turns up the honky-tonk vibes.”

Last year, McCreery was inducted into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame, joining previously inducted artists like Eric Church, Charlie Daniels, Andy Griffith, Ronnie Milsap, Thelonious Monk, Nina Simone, James Taylor, Randy Travis and more. And in December, one of his country music heroes, Garth Brooks, invited him to join the Grand Ole Opry, an honor that McCreery has dreamed about since he was a kid. His Grand Ole Opry induction date will be announced soon.
