Scotty McCreery just teased a fun — and rowdy — new song. The 30-year-old, who has a Top 20 hit with “Cab In A Solo,” the debut single from his next project, posted a clip of the lively song on social media.
“Does anyone else have this problem? What do y’all think of this one?” McCreery captioned the video.
The song, which says in part, “Jessie’s a mechanic / His mother-in-law’s a manic / His new wife’s in a panic / Saying ‘When you comin’ home?’ / Danny drives a tractor / Left it in the pasture / Boss is getting madder / ‘Cause he won’t pick up the phone / Might not be an Ivy League Einstein crowd / But when it comes to Friday night / Man, we got it figured out,” is part of an eclectic, and very country, new album that McCreery is eager to share with the world.

“I’m pumped about this thing,” McCreery recently told Everything Nash. “It’s a little different for me, a touch. I feel like a lot of my other records were very autobiographical. This one has a couple of those songs. There’s a song for Avery. There’s a song for Gabi. But we’re kind of going in some different directions on this record. Some heartbreak, and some breakup songs. Some honky-tonking songs, and stuff I really haven’t done before on records.
“But I grew up loving those kinds of songs, so we just kind of let the guitar take us to where it wanted to when we were writing these songs, and this is where we ended up,” he added.
McCreery already teased another song, “Slow Dance,” from his forthcoming new project, and revealed there will also be a gospel song, perhaps a precursor to a faith-based album he wants to release at some point in his career.
“I would love to make a gospel record,” McCreery told Everything Nash and other outlets at a recent media event. “I think one of my favorite Elvis records was his gospel record. One of my heroes growing up was Josh Turner. As a lot of folks know, he just got a chance to make a gospel record. So, it’s a goal of mine. I’m not sure if that will be five years, ten years, but it’s a goal of mine to be able to do that. I grew up singing gospel songs in church. We just recorded a gospel song to go on the record. That’s what we ended the whole day with, so it’s something that’s important to me.”
2024 is already shaping up to be a big year for McCreery. In addition to a new album, the North Carolina native will also become the next member of the Grand Ole Opry, after being invited to join by Garth Brooks.
“I’ll do it all,” McCreery told radio station 94-7 WQDR, speaking of being a Grand Ole Opry member. “Whatever they’d like me to do. It’s really just an honor to be up there, and be a member. A lot of my heroes are members there, and played that stage. I’ll be there as much as I can, and parade that around the country, and invite folks out … I’ll be there for the rest of my life.”
