Scotty McCreery stopped by Harry on May 17 to chat with host Harry Connick Jr. and perform his recent No. 1 hit, “Five More Minutes.”
Scotty co-penned the deeply personal tune with Frank Rogers and Monty Criswell two weeks after the death of his grandfather in 2015.
“There was a time I thought this song would never see the light of day,” says Scotty. “Seeing this song, inspired by my Granddaddy Bill, go gold and then become my first number one means the world to me! After writing it with Frank Rogers and Monty Criswell, I tweeted out that ‘I think I just wrote my favorite song I’ve ever written,’ and that still holds true today.”
“Five More Minutes” is the lead single from Scotty’s third album, Seasons Change, which dropped on March 16. The 11-song offering features Scotty’s new single, “This Is It,” which was inspired by his engagement to Gabi Dugal.
