Scotty McCreery surprised fans with the announcement that his 2021 Same Truck project isn’t finished yet. This fall, he will be dropping a deluxe version that features six new songs, including his just-released “Nothin’ Right.”
“I am pumped that Triple Tigers asked me to do a Deluxe Edition where I could add six more songs,” McCreery said in a recent press release. “We’ve also had a lot of requests for a vinyl version of Same Truck over the last year, so I’m excited we can offer that option as well.”
The singer broke the news via social media, sharing that the expanded project will be available on Nov. 18.
“I’ve been sitting on these extra songs that we recorded since we started the Same Truck project and I’ve always wanted to hear this album on vinyl,” He wrote on Twitter.
Fans will also be able to purchase the project on CD and digital formats.
In addition to his latest release, McCreery teased the rest of the titles that will be heard on the track list: “On It,” “Here And Ready,” “Live A Little” “Falling For A Stranger” and “Small Town Story.”
Fans have already gotten a sneak peak of the project through “Nothin’ Right,” which has been added into the rotation of songs for McCreery’s setlist. For those attending his upcoming shows, there’s a good chance that he will work in some more unreleased songs too.
“We’re performing ‘Nothin’ Right’ in the live shows right now and it always gets a great response,” he shared. “Don’t be surprised if a few more of the bonus tracks make their way into our concerts soon.”
Co-written by McCreery, James McNair, Jordan Schmidt and Jared Mullins, the track is a feel-good anthem that stresses the importance of enjoying the present time and leaving any worries at the door.
“Gonna soak up these Sunday rays / Make the most of these good ole days / Ain’t nothin’ wrong / Singing nothin’ wrong with turning all day long into all night / Got nothin’ to do, got nothin’ but time/ If we’re gonna do nothin’ / Then we’re gonna do nothin’ right,” McCreery sings in the chorus.
Same Truck: The Deluxe Album was produced by Frank Rogers, Derek Wells, and Aaron Eshuis and McCreery serves as a co-writer on four of the six new tracks.
This project comes on the heels of three straight weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart with his RIAA Gold-certified hit song “Damn Strait” and the recent launch of his new single “It Matters to Her,” which was the second most added song at country radio this week.
The North Carolina native has been touring all summer, both on his own as well as direct support to Brooks & Dunn, and Brad Paisley at select shows. Scotty McCreery is next slated to play Saturday (Sept. 16) in Saratoga Springs, NY before returning to the historic Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, TX, site of his “Damn Strait” music video, for a sold-out show on Friday (Sept. 23).
