“Feel Like the Holidays,” written by  Frank Rogers, Monty Criswell, Derek George, Bobby Hamrick and Jeremy Bussey, celebrates everything McCreery loves about the holiday season.

“Christmas is my favorite time of year and I sing Christmas songs every day,”  McCreery says. “When I first heard ‘Feel Like the Holidays,’ I knew I wanted to record the song. It has that timeless, classic Christmas music vibe and is so much fun. It feels like something that Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole, or Michael Buble would sing. I’m looking forward to performing it this holiday season.”

McCreery will celebrate Christmas with his wife, Gabi, and one-year-old son, Avery, in his home state of North Carolina.

“We’re just going to camp out for a few weeks, hanging up in the mountains, praying for snow and drinking lots of hot chocolate,” McCreery tells 94-7 WQDR radio station. “Lord knows [Avery] does not need any more toys. I’ve already stepped on enough Legos in the middle of the night. He’s going to hopefully have a good time, and I know the family will for sure.”

The American Idol alum already received the best Christmas present of all: an invitation to join the Grand Ole Opry, presented to him by Garth Brooks.

“[He] flew to Nashville just for the invitation, and he flew back to LA right after it was done, for Jimmy Kimmel,” McCreery says, praising Brooks for choosing to be part of the unforgettable moment. “He is all class in my book … He’s always just been so cool to me and the family, for sure.”

After the invitation to become an official member of the Grand Ole Opry, the 30-year-old reflected on the honor, in a heartfelt post shared on social media.

“Last night was one of the greatest nights of my life,” McCreery said. “I wish I could tell that 10-year-old boy singing ‘The Dance’ on the edge of his bed at 2 in the morning, that one day Garth Brooks would invite him to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry! Still doesn’t feel real. Thank you Grand Ole Opry for the honor of a lifetime. Proud to be a part of the family.”

McCreery will embark on his Cab  In A Solo Tour on January 26 in Troy, Ohio. Find all of McCreery’s music and upcoming shows at
