Scotty McCreery is back at country radio this week with a new single he co-wrote called “In Between.”
The song serves as the third single from his album Seasons Change, which spawned number one hits “Five More Minutes” and “This is It,” the latter holding the No. 1 spot for two consecutive weeks.
“For me, the theme of ‘In Between’ is all about balance,” says McCreery about the new song. “Everyone’s not all one thing or all the other. We all have many facets to our lives. It’s about knowing who you are and finding the balance that’s right for you.”
Scotty co-wrote the powerful song alongside Frank Rogers, Jessi Alexander and Jonathan Singleton over four years ago when he was still in the midst of just dating his now-wife, Gabi.
“I wrote it the very same week as we wrote ‘Five More Minutes,’” he reveals. “I find it a bit funny because I wrote the lyric ‘I ain’t ready for a ring on my hand’ back then, and now when it’s my current single, I am a newly married man. But ‘In Between’ tells the story of where I was in my life at that moment, and I think that’s what makes it so personal to me.”
“In Between” is one of the top three most added songs at country radio this week.
