Scotty McCreery is on a roll.
The North Carolina native scored his second consecutive No. 1 single with “This Is It,” which topped both the Billboard Country Airplay chart and Mediabase chart this week.
“This Is It,” which Scotty co-penned with Frank Rogers and Aaron Eshuis about his then-fiancée Gabi Dugal, is featured on Scotty’s 2018 album, Seasons Change. Scotty earned his first No. 1 in 2018 with the album’s lead single, “Five More Minutes.”
“I wrote ‘This Is It’ for Gabi,” says Scotty. “It’s our song. I played it for her just an hour after I proposed. I sang it to her at our wedding. She’s who I see in my mind when I perform it on the road every night. Watching our love story become my second No. 1 hit is something Gabi and I will treasure always. I am so thankful to country radio and my fans who have stood with me from day one for making my dreams come true.”
