McCreery is currently enjoying a Top 20 hit with “It Matters To Her.” The song was written by McCreery, along with Rhett Akins and Lee Thomas Miller, and inspired by his wife, Gabi. “It Matters to Her” follows his multi-week, No. 1 “Damn Strait” single.

“It’s a song that I love,” McCreery told Everything Nash. “And it’s a message I think needs to be heard, and it’s coming off of my biggest song to date with ‘Damn Strait.’ So it’s so fun right now, just getting to go out there …  to see the fans singing these songs back to me, and the smiles on their faces. It wasn’t that long ago that I didn’t have these five number ones, these hits to play, and I was grounding up some covers to try and entertain the crowd. And so now to have my own stuff that they get excited for, it’s pretty special.”

The American Idol alum recently performed at the Grand Ole Opry, where he spoke about how much his life has changed since welcoming his osn, Avery, in October.

“It is the coolest thing I have ever done,” McCreery told host Chuck Wicks after his performance. “It’s awesome. Every day is awesome. Nothing beats it.”

The 29-year-old admitted he shed a few tears when he first held Avery in his arms, and is thrilled to get to watch him grow.

“Waterworks, absolutely,” McCreery said. “But it’s just so cool seeing him. He’s smiling. He’s growing up, so the smiles that he’s giving you, it’s not poop smiles now. He’s actually laughing at you. It’s pretty great.”

McCreery is part of the American Currents exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame. The exhibit, which also includes items from Cody JohnsonMorgan WallenLuke CombsMiranda LambertHARDYReba McEntireShania Twain, Lainey Wilson, Parker McCollumAshley McBrydeWynonna Judd and more, will open on March 8.
