Scotty McCreery’s ‘This Is It’ Hits No. 1
Scotty McCreery has earned his second-consecutive No. 1 single with his latest release, "This Is It." Fresh off of his Seasons Change Tour, the song has reached the coveted spot on both the Billboard and Mediabase Country Aircheck Airplay charts.
"This Is It" is the second single from the Seasons Change album to land at the top of the charts, following the heart-wrenching "Five More Minutes," which is now close to reaching double-platinum status. The album itself also debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart upon its release in spring 2018.

McCreery was inspired by his longtime love and wife, Gabi Dugal, whom he married in June of 2018. He co-wrote "This Is It" with Frank Rogers and Aaron Eshuis, and the song concept was based on his proposal. His music video is just as personal as the lyrics, with featuring clips of his real-life wedding.
"I wrote 'This Is It' for Gabi. It's our song," the one-time American Idol winner says. "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."
Even though McCreery previously said that 2018 was his favorite year so far, 2019 is off to a monumental start for him. After wrapping up his headlining Seasons Change Tour, he will be touring throughout 2019. A third single from Seasons Change is expected to be announced soon.
