Here are the radio and video links below. Please take the time to vote and view his video, especially on CMT. (after you vote.. go back to the home page and select Scotty's video and watch it all the way through, then you have to go back to the home page..each time to re-select the video for the view to count. I know, it sounds like a lot of work, but that's what the Carrie Underwood fans, and the Lauren fans are doing for their own. How much more should we do for OUR SCOTTY.

Another article posted today:

And another from Huffington post which has the same parent company as Build. This article include the really great build video interview if you have not seen that:

by GrandmaDot @ 3/19/2018 12:38:40 PM
fan#1 thank you for the information on Scotty appearance on Hallmark May 20th - one of my favorite channels!!!
Have agreat time seeing Scotty on the 25th!!!  Hope you give us a recap!!!


We have been privy to many great interviews but this one appeared today.
It names a name and gives a time line of events that will have you understanding to a much greater degree just what Scotty has been through since UMG let him go.  Having read this I learned more than I knew and SMH at UMG.  Also admire even more the strength of character Scotty has to believe in himself and to have found a way to do things his way in Nashville and coming out on top!

by fan#1 @ 3/18/2018 3:44:48 PM
hello everyone hope everyone is doing well and enjoying Scotty's cd like i am. i wanted to let you know that on Scotty's website that says he his going to be on home and family on the hallmark channel on Tuesday may 20th 9:00 am - 11:00 am.

GrandmaDot.  Thanks for posting these.  They are all wonderful reviews and I truly agree I like the closing paragraph,  So proud of our Scotty and he deserves all the intentions he is getting.  
Thanks, Bob, Portland, Oregon

You are welcome Loretta!

Here are more OUTSTANDING reviews of the album:

From @GotCountry …

From @Variety

From @digitaljournal

From buildingourownnashville:

In this last I like the closing paragraph

A soundtrack to his life, Scotty has set the bar high this year and I challenge any artist to deliver a more honest, authentic album that hits quite like Seasons Change does. Scotty is the one to watch this year and has worked hard to get here. As a winner of a contest show, some would say he has a lot to prove but this album is more than proof, Scotty is the real deal.

by Loretta @ 3/17/2018 5:09:13 PM
Thanks GrandmaDot for all the connections to hearing Scotty's interviews & performances.  I have been playing the new CD non stop.   Love it, great to hear Scotty's new music & to see him in the limelight again! He belongs there,  shame on his previous label.  Guess that experience gave us the song "Seasons Change" which I love!  Everything works to the good, when the Lord is in charge of your life.

by GrandmaDot @ 3/17/2018 1:16:14 PM
Scotty did a FaceBook Live yesterday on the bus singing acoustic  for one hour to celebrate the release of Seasons Change  He doing another one today!


Last night Scotty performed his new set list in PA for the first time.  It is a wonderful choice of songs and includes 9 of the 11 on the new album.  I want the other two added as they are among my faves!


Spoiler Alert:  Here are excerpts of the recap my friend ,,Joan who attended last night reported and it gives  you details of the format of the new show:

Seasons Change sounded great as the opener.  

Wherever you are and Boys from Back Home followed Seasons Change and then Scotty talked briefly and let the crowd know those were 3 songs from his just released album. Screams followed!

After Ain't going down till the Sun comes up was the Ballad Medley where he put together the Trouble with Girls, Forget to Forget you (I was thrilled he sang a good deal of that one - always a personal favorite of mine) and Love you this Big. 

When he sang Feel Good Summer Song, it was wonderful

He did a nice job of mixing in the new unfamiliar songs with the familiar ones to keep the crowd engaged and energized! So next he sang In-between, followed by Take it Easy, (a crowd pleaser) and then Wrong Again.

He then talked briefly about loving to travel and all the wonderful cities and countries he had seen, but it was always good to get home. So he introduced Home in My Mind and sang it and then weaved right into James Taylors, Carolina in My Mind - very very nice!

He then talked about his engagement, the planning of it - and Gabi before singing This is it!

Five More Minutes followed - and I think perhaps one of the most special parts of the evening - before the last verse of FMM, he stopped and proceeded to tell us about his grandfather when he was in the air force going to Puerto Rico and how one night he and his fellow airmen decided to go on blind dates. The girl his grandfather took out, he apparently really liked because when he took her home he told her someday he was going to marry her. She responded by telling him he was either drunk or crazy and slammed the door in his face! This of course ended up to be Paquita (sp?) (Scotty remarked she was still a spunky lady) He talked about memories of his grandfather working at Pinehurst and letting him drive the golf cart there occasionally. He talked about them being married for 58 years and now that he and Gabi are getting married soon, he looked at their marriage as a role model for theirs. It was a special tribute - very touching. Then he sang the last verse of FMM and when he was done he asked the crowd to sing the chorus again - and he listened. It was a WOW!

His oldies medley consisted of snippets of Hello Darling, Forever and Ever Amen, Folsom Prison Blues, Chattochee (sp?); Hey Pretty Lady. 

His finished up with Water Tower Town and See You Tonight People sang both of these songs loudly - particularly See You Tonight.

Encore: More it on Out - which sounded terrific and Feelin It, which the crowd always loves (no beach balls).
My observation: Whiplash, Southern Belle and Walk In the Country are gone from the show.  Indeed Seasons have Changed!!

by GrandmaDot @ 3/16/2018 12:07:02 AM
Santos I agree it is the best country record I have ever heard too!  Normally I have to hear a song about 5 times to decide if I like it, but every one of these grabbed me and was memorable from the first listen.  

Scotty is having a twitter party at midnight!!!

I am praying that we see it debut at #1!!!!


17 hours left to vote here for Scotty - you can only vote one time:  This FB is open to the public to vote.

Vote for the K96 Madness Matchup of the Day! The song with the most combined votes on Facebook and Twitter advances. Also on Facebook

by Santos @ 3/15/2018 10:46:31 PM
GrandmaDot, thank you for all the great posts.  I received my CD and I must say this is absolutely the BEST Country Record I have ever heard.  It is (mostly) an entire different side to our Scotty.  He is fabulous!  His voice is spectacular, his range is stunning and the instruments are wonderful.  I'm going to buy several more to have or I just might give as gifts.  I was bouncing off my seat in some songs and crying in others. I am thrilled for Scotty, he certainly deserves this.

by GrandmaDot @ 3/15/2018 2:35:07 PM
Barbara11 he sounded great on Megyn Kelly Today!!!

Here is an article that pulls no punches about UMG dropping Scotty.  

Emily Yahr Verified account @EmilyYahr / Washington Post
So, @ScottyMcCreery: How great does it feel to get your first No. 1 with a type of song that your former label — the one that dropped you — chose not to release?!
He's way too nice to gloat about it, but with this turn of events, he really should:

by barbara11 @ 3/15/2018 11:45:27 AM
GrandmaDot, Thanks for the postings,watched everything, including this morning.  Received my  Cds yesterday, live in Mi,  kept me busy with the new music and a new Mac.  I agree with your choices, so good.  Now, I have to tell my family the date for the Pickler show.  All this so exciting, and enjoyable might have a stroke.....Ha.  Thanks again.  barbara11

by GrandmaDot @ 3/15/2018 12:28:21 AM
TV Dates:

Saw this article from CMR and it says Scotty will be on Today Show the Meghan Kelly hour tomorrow. Also states that he will air on Pickler and Ben on March 21.

by GrandmaDot @ 3/15/2018 12:18:51 AM
Got my CD's today and have been listening nonstop. Cannot wait to deliver the autographed copies to neighbors who have attended Scotty concerts with me tomorrow. I am obsessed with the lyrics, artistry, and instrumentation of all the songs. I am so pleased he chose This Is It as the next single as it defines the Season of life he is in right now so perfectly.  Also have to say I love the first song, Seasons Change, and hope he makes it the opening song for his concerts. Absolutely in love with Barefootin. He hits that low register in his voice which I adore. If you are not acquainted with the Carolina Shag please google it and enjoy the sophisticated jitterbug/swing like steps defining this dance. And I just love the very romantic Still. Gotta go back to listening!!!!!!!! This album is a winner!!!!!!

The more I listen to "This is It" the more I love it.  It is romantic, exciting and sincere. You can hear the anticipation Scotty is feeling in his longing for Gabi.  It is perfect! It will be a number 1!!

Great expectations for Seasons Change Album!!!! wub.gif

by GrandmaDot @ 3/2/2018 9:10:40 PM
Wowser - look at this.  Scotty will be a mentor on the new Idol this season.

This will tell you all we know so far - It is from TOC

IPB Image

But McCreery has a lot to be positive about when it comes to the show — especially because he's acting as a mentor to contestants this season! "It's exciting," he gushes. "I've already gone out to L.A. and filmed a mentor session with some of the contestants. The contestants were cool, great voices, and seem like they have great heads on their shoulders. It should be a good year."

He'll work alongside, not competing with, radio host Bobby Bones, who will mentor the Top 24 American Idol contestants.

"We're working together, he was out there too," McCreery says. It was really cool getting to work with him in that different environment than what we normally see each other in."

The new season of American Idol will premiere with not one, but two shows, running Sunday, March 11 at 8PM ET and Monday, March 12 at 8PM ET. Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Richie will be filling roles as judges.

Tweeted by TOC here:

I have no idea if this is for one show, the 2 opening shows, or for the whole season!!!!!  But I am thrilled he will get this exposure on TV.  Really hoping he gets to sing too!


We do not yet know the date for Celebrity Family Feud


Scotty will be on Pickler and Ben.  His show will be taped in Nashville on March 8.  I see the show is on my TV every day at 9am ET here in FL.  I have set the DVR to record!  Again we have no idea when his show will air.

Mark your calendars and set your DVR's!!!!!  I am soooooooo excited!!!!

by fan#1 @ 3/1/2018 10:36:42 PM
i was really hoping scotty would've been nominated for an acm award, but no such luck. hopefully the cmt's and cma awards scotty will get nominated

by GrandmaDot @ 3/1/2018 9:34:18 PM
Scotty announced on AXS that this is the next single to radio so I am sure there will be a stunningly beautiful music video.

It is up to 323 views now!

by Santos @ 3/1/2018 7:59:41 PM
I absolutely LOVE this song!!  "This is It"  There's so much passion in his words and voice.  I can just see him singing it to her as she walks down the isle toward him.  There would not be a dry eye in the church.  I was crying just hearing the words.  I agree GrandmaDot, I hope they use it in a music video.

by GrandmaDot @ 3/1/2018 5:27:26 PM
Wow we are blessed AXS has put Scotty's songs from their site on youtube

Here is the song I am in love with This Is it.  it has 51 views at this time - let's do our magic and listen to this nonstop!!!!;feature=share

This is from TOC.

Be sure to read and then listen to the audio at the bottom of the article for more wedding details!

by GrandmaDot @ 2/28/2018 3:11:26 PM
Santos and Bob I do believe Scotty deserves what he is now getting.  I believe that God was overseeing the closing of one door and the opening of better ones.  Scotty has chosen such a beautiful song as his next single.  He did not go for Bro Country or club music beats.  We are hearing him tell us his story with Gabi with a traditional sounding country record!!!!!!!  It is what we expect from Scotty!

It is a breath of fresh air to hear this song of a man in love respectfully planning for his engagement being the perfect moment for he and his woman and anticipating seeing his bride walk down the aisle.  The way Scotty wanted a perfect kiss and the way he sang the word "smile" seeing her walk toward him on his wedding day in that acoustic version reached right into my heart.  Yes God will use Scotty greatly!!  

I am hoping that once the album drops he will include this acoustic version in his concerts and on the Opry so that fans will be screaming for it to be played by radio.  All while living the lyrics as the song climbs the chart!

MY heart is singing with happiness for he and Gabi and that he trusted us with his thoughts of love.

by bob @ 2/28/2018 1:48:45 PM
GrandmaDot!   As Salntaos said Thank you for posting this  What a gracious young man  He deserves all that he is getting now.   Love our Scotty, Regards, Bob

by Santos @ 2/28/2018 11:35:45 AM
Oh, GrandmaDot!  Thank you for posting Scotty's Facebook post!  He is such a wonderful and gracious young man.   I believe God will use him greatly.

by GrandmaDot @ 2/28/2018 10:39:58 AM
Santos I am so glad you heard it on AXS.  I, too, thought it was beautiful.  I recalled the precious moments of my own courtship, engagement and wedding with my husband - married 52 years this year.  So it reached into my heart just as 5MM had done - but in a different way.

Imagine how stunning the video will be since it should be including Gabi coming down the aisle as he is singing that note on the word "beautiful".

Some fans are expressing surprise he is releasing another ballad.  Some had a preference for In Between.  I love In Between, and I think it has a place on the album Seasons Change as it takes us through the last 5 years since his last album.  But I think it is past its time as a single.  This Is It is where Scotty is right now in his life.  He and Gabi will be living the words of this love song as it climbs the charts.  How much more wonderful can it get.  He said it will not be on radio for a couple of months.  He has an album to drop and promote and if the song goes to radio a little later he will be able to include his wedding in the music video for it!    


On Facebook last night Scotty posted the following. It is well written and he is being very honest about how the last several years have been for him.

As a young boy, I always loved to sing and entertain. Because of that I had a dream, I wanted to one day become a big time country music singer. I sang in church, at school, at local country showcases, and at talent shows and competitions. Eventually in 2010, at the age of 16, I decided I wanted to try out for American Idol. Never in a million years did I think I would win that show, but thank yall so much for that opportunity!

Even after winning the show however, in my mind I still had not accomplished my dream. I’d been given a platform, but I knew in country music, it is all about the song. So I immediately sought out to make the best music I knew how. My first record I was young and unsure of what I wanted to say, the big hit songs simply were not on that record. My second album progressed, but I was still hungry for that first #1!

I started writing for my 3rd album in early 2015. On Feb. 5th, 2015, just a couple weeks after losing my Grandaddy Bill, I wrote what I consider to be my best song yet in honor of him. That song was called “Five More Minutes”. I finally thought I had the song that would be my first big #1 single! ...Well.. after a botched first single for that 3rd album, I was informed that I was being released from my record label deal. This news devastated me. For 24 hours, in my mind my career was over, my dreams were finished, and the world would never hear 5MM. But after thinking about how blessed I had been in life, how hard I had worked, and how much I believed in 5MM, I decided I was not giving up and I was going to fight! Sure, someone might have basically said they don't believe in me as an artist and they don’t believe in 5MM, but that was just fuel to my fire! Time to prove the doubters wrong!

2016 was not fun, but we got through it. My attorney, David Crow, and my business manager David Boyer, really pulled me through that year. Later, I signed with Triple 8 management, and George Couri and Scott Stem started putting the strategy together for releasing 5MM in 2017. We released the song in May of ‘17, and with the help of country radio and the fans, 5MM became the first song in country music history to chart top 50 w/o a label! Soon after that, my label Triple Tigers came onboard and now we were off to the races! People were finally starting to hear the song I believed in more than anything all around the country! My band and my crew travelled with me tirelessly around the country as we went station to station playing 5MM for whoever would listen. It was a longgg, tough journey for 5MM, but that’s life, it’s not supposed to be easy. And now today, we are sitting here with the NUMBER 1 song in country music!!! and I have never felt so good in my life! All the ups and all the downs are what make this song going all the way to the top so fulfilling.

There are a few things I’ve learned during this process.

#1, as Jimmy V said, “Never give up.” No matter what obstacles life throws at you, follow your dreams and be persistent in following them. You never know what you can accomplish.

And #2, it takes a VILLAGE. Five More Minutes is not at the top of the charts if not for the love, strength, and support I received from my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, my family and my fiancée.. the guidance I received from my management team, my label, my attorney and my business manager.. and the hard work from my band and my crew that have been by my side through thick and thin since day 1! This is not a “me” thing... this is a “we” thing.

So I just want to say thank you, to all of you, for giving me and this song a chance. I’ve finally accomplished one of the biggest goals I had set forth for myself over the last 7 years, having the number 1 song in country music! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

P.S... does it feel good to prove the doubter(s) wrong? Yes. Yes it does.

by Santos @ 2/27/2018 9:18:47 PM
OH my gosh!  I just heard Scotty sing "This is It" on AXS  It was beautiful!  He is going to have the best album ever.  He said it was going to be his next song for radio.

by Loretta @ 2/27/2018 2:26:58 PM
All three of the new songs should be #1 hits. Home in my Mind, In Between, & Where Ever You Are,   have great lyrics and a good beat.  I want to hear the entire album so bad. Scotty has waited so long for all of this.  I agree, one of my favorites was Forget To Forget You, did he loose that song when the label dropped him?

by Dan @ 2/26/2018 1:51:44 PM
Then again, In Between is also excellent and Wherever You Are. Oh Hell, i know I'm going to like the whole album.

by Dan @ 2/26/2018 12:29:42 PM
I've listened to "Home In My Mind" several times. I think it's gold. Hope Scotty goes with this and a video would be great. I hope he doesn't miss out on this one, like FTFY.

I truly like all three of the new songs Scotty put out.  But, "Home in my Mind" is golden.  I can see him singing that at the ACM's.  His voice is magnificent and the lyrics are so incredibly beautiful.  Again, all three are wonderful!
