Scotty McCreery is on cloud nine after celebrating three No.1 singles and performing at the Grand Ole Opry on the same day. 

On Tuesday (Aug. 9), the chart-topping hitmaker celebrated his three back-to-back No. 1 hits, including  “Damn Strait,” “You Time,” and “In Between,” with his pregnant wife Gabi McCreery at his side. 

Later in the evening, following the No. 1 celebration at Electric Jane in Nashville, McCreery performed at the Grand Ole Opry.

The North Carolina native documented the memorable day on Instagram with a gallery of photos, including snapshots from the party and backstage at the Opry.

“Wish I could tell 10 year old Scotty practicing guitar on the end of his bed… One day he’d get to celebrate 3 #1 singles in the morning and then play the Grand Ole @Opry that night. 🤯🙏🏼,” he captioned the post. 

McCreery says the celebration was extra special as he hasn’t had a chance to get together with his team and musical collaborators for quite some time. 

“I never take a number one for granted…it takes a village and every one feels like the first. I was so happy to finally be able to raise a glass with the team and the songwriters to say thanks for all the hard work,” he shared.

Earlier this month, McCreery’s wife Gabi took to social media to congratulate her husband on the success of his three-week No. 1 hit, “Damn Strait.”

McCreery’s latest hit, “Damn Strait” spent a total of 41 weeks on the Billboard Country Airplay chart and three weeks sitting at No. 1 on the chart.

On Friday (Aug. 5), McCreery’s wife Gabi praised her husband’s achievement on her Instagram alongside a photo that featured her, McCreery and their dog, Moose. In the second slide of the post, McCreery is seen reading a Benjamin Watson’s ‘The New Dad’s Playbook’ as they anticipate the arrival of their baby boy.

“3 weeks with a #1 song 🤠 pretty dang proud of this dad 🤪🤩,” Gabi, who is pregnant with the couple’s first child, wrote.

McCreery later showed his gratitude for her support, writing, “Thanks mama!” reposting her photo to his Facebook page. 

The country crooner will soon celebrate his No. 1 hit with fans at Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, Texas. Tickets for the show are already sold out.

“We’re celebrating the #1 song where the King got his start!” McCreery shared. ”See you soon, Texas!

Additionally, McCreery, who will soon release his new single “It Matters To Her” to country radio, is currently on the road playing the festival circuit as he awaits the arrival of his first child later this year.
