Scotty McCreery played The Wilbur on Sunday night and things got emotional during “Five More Minutes.” The former American Idol winner is very thankful for his very first number one single and it just so happens that it has a very special place in the heart of his family, as well.

McCreery’s grandfather became a trending topic after the singles release due to his inspiration behind the song and while Scotty was in Boston this past weekend he told a sweet story of how his grandparents met and more.

Please note, I was there, with my 85-year old grandmother sitting next to me, bobbing her head the whole time. During this story, well, the only thing I can say is, I wasn’t crying – YOU WERE!

The story starts at around 2:49
