Scotty McCreery has once again left fans craving new music as he just dropped a teaser of a brand-new, unreleased song. Today (Jan. 4), he took to X to share a snippet of the 90s-influenced tune. 

Within the span of the 37-second clip, the song offers a catchy beat paired with a set of tongue-in-cheek lyrics centered around some small-town folk. McCreery hones in on the stereotype of blue-collar workers who are often viewed as unintelligent while using a clever play on words to describe the group of “good ole boys.”

Letting his baritone vocals shine, the North Carolina native sings, “When the long week’s paychecks are cashed / Where we gonna spend if buddy you ain’t gotta ask / When the neon lights are kickin’ on / All of us are heading to a home away from home / We don’t look like much but we’re pretty damn smart / For some good ole boys that can’t pass the bar.”

“Does anyone else have this problem? 🎓🍺 What do y’all think of this one?” he asked in the caption.

McCreery is known for keeping the spirit of the beloved era of ‘90s country alive through his catalog of songs and it’s clear from the response of fans in the comment section that his talent has once again captivated country music fans. Several listeners noted that they “can’t wait” for the full version to be released.

The excitement surrounding this unreleased song comes the platinum-selling singer/songwriter’s latest single, “Cab In A Solo,” continues to make its way up the charts at country radio. In late December of 2023, U.S. Radio Updater on X revealed that the tune had broke into the Top 20 on the Mediabase country chart.

McCreery previously shared to social media that “Cab In A Solo” was penned in the mountainside of North Carolina alongside Brent Anderson and Frank Rogers. Together, they drew up a portrayal of heartbreak told from the perspective of a man who finds himself drinking alone after suspecting his other half is cheating on him.

“Sittin’ here, I can’t believe what I just saw / Couple shadows kissin’ on the bedroom wall / It’s lookin’ like my plan didn’t work out at all / Heartbreak turned into broke up / So now I’m findin’ out how a heartbreak taste / With a Silver Oak, 1998 / Drinkin’ cab in a solo / Solo in the cab of my truck,” he delivers on the chorus.

New Album On The Way

This is just one of 13 songs that came as a result of the writing retreat in the mountains and is expected to be the lead single off the 30-year-old’s forthcoming project. McCreery has yet to share any further details including a release date for the album that will follow his Same Truck project.

In the meantime, Scotty McCreery is preparing to embark on his highly-anticipated headlining run of 2024. The Cab In A Solo Tour begins Friday, Jan. 26 in Troy, Ohio and features support from Anne Wilson as well as Greylan James and Noah Hicks on select dates.

“It’s the new year and what’s that mean? A new tour,” McCreery said in a new video message to fans. “Heading out on tour, we’re hitting Boston, hitting Philadelphia, Atlanta, Omaha, coming to a whole bunch of cities. Y’all come see us on the Cab In A Solo Tour starting up later this month.”
