Scotty McCreery Debuts 'Five More Minutes' Acoustic Video
Scotty McCreery has released his first digital-only EP, The Soundcheck Sessions.
Produced by Nathan Thomas, McCreery’s longtime bass player, the collection features the just-released track “Five More Minutes (Acoustic)” as well as previously released tracks “In Between (Acoustic)” and “This is It (Acoustic).”
“It’s no secret that ‘Five More Minutes’ is my favourite song I’ve ever written,” said McCreery. “I announced that on Twitter that very day and I’ve stated it frequently.
“That song was inspired by my grandfather and we wrote it two weeks after he passed away. It was fitting that it became my first No.1 hit. I knew if I was doing a collection of acoustic performances that ‘Five More Minutes’ had to be included.”
The video for the acoustic version of the song was, like the original video, directed by Jeff Ray. It was shot on the stage of the Cascade Theatre in Redding, California last September and features the 26-year-old singer backed by Jeffrey Harper and Dylan Rosson.
McCreery performs Feb. 21 at Fallsview Casino Resort in Niagara Falls, Ont.
