Scotty McCreery Releases Romantic ‘Slow Dance’ [LISTEN]

Scotty McCreery has a brand-new song, out now. The singer-songwriter just released “Slow Dance,” one of 13 songs on his forthcoming Rise and Fall album, out on May 10.

The romantic song says in part, “Baby, you’re my slow dance / George Strait in the kitchen / Taking my hand, and all of my attention / Cheek to cheek across the floor / When I need to shut the door / On a world that’s always moving so fast / Baby you’re my slow dance.”

McCreery first teased the sweet song in November, saying it was his response to fans who asked him to share more of his deep bass voice.

“So I’ve had a lot of folks ask over the years, they say, ‘Scotty, you’ve got this deep voice. Why haven’t you used it on one of your songs, or on one of your records?’ McCreery said at the time. “I thought about that, and wanted to write a song for you all that have asked that question. I like this song a lot. It’s called ‘Slow Dance.’ I hope you all do too.”

The release of “Slow Dance” comes as McCreery’s current single, “Cab In A Solo” hit the Top 10. The song, which McCreery wrote with Brent Anderson and Frank Rogers, was the perfect way for McCreery to introduce his next record.

“It’s one of my favorites I’ve written in a long time,” McCreery told Everything Nash of the song. “We went up to the mountains in North Carolina, just me and a bunch of buddies; guitars, cold beer and fireplaces. We sat outside and wrote songs. We wrote a bunch that weekend.

“But when  I was driving back in the mountains, and even since then, I kept going back to ‘Cab In A Solo,’” he added. “I kept going back to it. To me, that meant, ‘Oh, there’s something here.’ Luckily, everybody else loved it, and the label. We put it out there, and it’s been off to a great start.”

Rise and Fall will come out shortly after McCreery officially becomes a Grand Ole Opry member. The  30-year-old, who was  invited by Garth Brooks to join in December, will be inducted by Josh Turner on April 20.

“It has been my longtime goal to be worthy of Opry membership,” McCreery said when his Opry induction date was announced. “I am overjoyed to join this prestigious family that is the heart of country music. To be invited by my hero Garth Brooks and to be inducted by another hero Josh Turner is beyond what I could have ever dreamed.”

McCreery has a few more dates on his Cab In A Solo Tour. He has also released “Can’t Pass the Bar” and “Love Like This” from Rise and Fall. See a track list for the album below. Find all of McCreery’s music and upcoming shows, and pre-order Rise and Fall, at
