Scotty McCreery Shares Title Track From Upcoming Album, ‘Same Truck’

by Jim Casey

Scotty McCreery treated fans to a new release—the title track—from his upcoming fifth studio album, Same Truck.

Penned by Scotty, Ashley Gorley, Zack Crowell and Taylor Phillips, “Same Truck” serves as Scotty’s celebratory anthem of unity. The North Carolina native belts the chorus in his distinctive baritone: “But we’re all in the same truck / Heading down a different two lane / Kickin’ up the same dust / Praying for the same rain.”

“We’re all more alike than we are different,” said Scotty in a press release. “I’ve witnessed that on almost a daily basis as I talk with people and watch them while traveling around the world to perform. This is my way of saying that we’re all on the same team here. Let’s all work toward getting along again. Let’s build each other up.”

Scotty’s Truckin’

“Same Truck” follows the release of the album’s lead single, “You Time,” in September 2020. “You Time” is currently Top 10 on the Mediabase chart, looking to follow in the chart-topping footsteps of Scotty’s three previous singles: “Five More Minutes,” “This Is It,” and “In Between.”

Scotty also shared the upcoming album’s “Why You Gotta Be Like That” in July 2021. The 12-song offering features 10 songs that Scotty co-penned.

“We recorded a bunch of songs pre-pandemic and thought we had the album just about ready. And then the world shut down,” said McCreery. “For the first time in 10 years, I was home more than a few days at a time. I loved having the extra time with my wife, Gabi, and our dog, Moose, however it also gave me a lot of time to pick up the guitar and just play for fun. I wound up writing a bunch of new songs and creating almost a whole new album from the perspective of reflecting on my last decade, yet also keeping an eye towards where I want to go.”

Scotty’s new album will drop on Sept. 17.
