– Scotty McCreery will release his fifth studio album, "Same Truck," on Sept. 17 via Triple Tigers.
The album, produced by Frank Rogers, Derek Wells and Aaron Eshuis, features a dozen songs including his single "You Time" and his recently released song "Why You Gotta Be Like That."
McCreery the gun a bit on announcing the disc. Originally, the album was going to be announced in August, but following last Friday's release of "Why You Gotta Be Like That," pre-sale information was leaked at several key retailers. McCreery and his label both decided to announce the album early.
"It's gratifying to learn that my fans are so excited about my upcoming new album that they sought out pre-order information before it was ready to be announced and got it," said McCreery. "Thanks to Triple Tigers and the retailers for coming together quickly so we could make this official album announcement. I can't wait to share this music with everyone."
McCreery co-wrote 10 songs on the disc, including the title track, "You Time" and "Why You Gotta Be Like That." Coming three years after his last album, "Seasons Change," "Same Truck" is a reflection of where he is in life now as a man married for three years and who is also celebrating his 10th year as an entertainer.
"My last album was about me as a young man getting ready to get married," said McCreery. "'Same Truck' is me three years later, taking a moment to acknowledge where I am now as a 27-year-old, happily married man, sharing both what I've learned and where I want to go."
"You never know how new songs are going to go over in the live show, but our audiences sure seem to enjoy them from the reaction we're receiving," said the North Carolina native.
