More than 18 months after parting ways with Universal Music Group’s Mercury Nashville label in 2016, Scotty McCreery has signed a new record deal with Triple Tigers Records/Sony Music Entertainment.
“I’m very excited to become part of the Triple Tigers/Sony Music Entertainment family,” said Scotty. “They believe in me and my music, they work hard, and for being a brand-new company, they are already succeeding. I am fired up to see what we can achieve together.”

“We had a full record pretty much ready to go [when I lost my record deal in February 2016],” said Scotty to Nash Country Daily in May. “We’ve still got all that music, and we are probably going to use some of that music on the upcoming album. But we’ve been writing, too. I’ve been writing just a ton here recently, and I feel like I’m in a really cool spot creatively. On the album, we’re probably going to use a lot more of what’s happening right now, now that I’m writing, but I’ll probably still use three or four from the record that we had made in 2015 and piece it all together.”
