Scotty McCreery Teases Release of ‘Slow Dance’ From New Album

More music might soon be coming from Scotty McCreery. The singer-songwriter, who has a Top 15 hit with “Cab In A Solo,” recently dropped “Love Like This” from his new record, and is now hinting at releasing another new song from his next project,” “Slow Dance,” a track he previously teased from the record.

“Ninety miles an hour, I can’t even get my foot on the brakes,” McCreery sings in the clip. “In this old rat race / 100 people, 100 places, girl there’s always somewhere I gotta be / But you know what I need / This life has got me moving at the speed of sound / Only you can turn me around / Baby you’re my slow dance / To Whitley in the kitchen / Taking my hand, and all of my attention / Cheek to cheek, across the floor / When I need to shut the door / In a world that’s always moving too fast / Baby, you’re my slow dance.”

When playing part of the song last fall, the North Carolina native said that the song was a response to a question fans have been asking him for a while.

“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.”

“Love Like This” was inspired by his wife, Gabi, and one-year-old son, Avery.

“Becoming a father is the greatest thing that’s happened to me,” McCreery said when “Love Like This” was released. “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.”

McCreery has a lot more to look forward to than just new music. The 30-year-old will fulfill a lifelong dream on April 20, when he is inducted into the Grand Ole Opry.

“It has been my longtime goal to be worthy of Opry membership,” McCreery said when his 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.”
