Scotty McCreery Scores First No. 1 with “Five More Minutes”

New Album Seasons Change Arrives March 16

Scotty McCreery admits there was a time when he thought his song “Five More Minutes” would never see the light of day.

After writing it in 2015 with Frank Rogers and Monty Criswell and a 40-week climb up Billboard’s Country Airplay chart, this week the gold-selling power ballad is the American Idol champion’s first No. 1 single.

It’s also the lead hit from McCreery’s forthcoming album, Seasons Change, which lands March 16.
