Scotty McCreery released his first digital-only EP, The Soundcheck Sessions, on Friday (Jan. 24th). The project features the just released track “Five More Minutes (Acoustic),” as well as previously released tracks “In Between (Acoustic)” and “This is It (Acoustic).” It also includes the bonus track “Still (Acoustic).” Scotty also released a music video for “Five More Minutes (Acoustic)”
He said, “It’s no secret that ‘Five More Minutes’ is my favorite song I’ve ever written. 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.”
Last week, Scotty performed in Cancun, Mexico at Luke Bryan‘s Crash My Playa.
