Why Scotty McCreery Scrapped an Entire Album

Furthermore, Scotty McCreery has released five records over the span of his career. However, he told Taste of Country, that there was a sixth album that was scrapped due to the pandemic. He was close to completing the album but was in quarantine like the rest of the world. So instead of completing it, he decided to make a brand new album in place of it.

“They’re just sitting there. They’re kind of like Toy Story 2, you know, (toys) sitting on the shelf,” McCreery said. “So I picked up a guitar for a lot of it and just wrote, basically, a whole new album, and that’s most of what you’re hearing. A couple of ’em were before, but most of ’em were COVID writes.”

Finally, McCreery’s previous album was Seasons Change, which released three years prior. He co-wrote the entire record, similar to his latest album which he co-wrote the majority of.

“My last album was about me as a young man getting ready to get married,” he said.  “Same Truck is me three years later, taking a moment to acknowledge where I am now as a 27-year-old, happily married man, sharing both what I’ve learned and where I want to go.”
