The North Carolina native revealed that his new single, “You Time,” will be released on Wednesday, September 23. The new track follow’s McCreery’s previous chart-topping singles, “Five More Minutes,” “This Is It” and “In Between” and marks the singer/songwriter’s first release from his upcoming album.

“I am so excited about releasing new music, especially a song that makes me think of Gabi and puts me in a joyful mood. I think we can all use a smile right now,” McCreery shared in a statement.

“You Time” was co-written by McCreery with Frank Rogers and Aaron Eshuis. It’s described as an “up-tempo track” that is “a bouncy love letter to wife Gabi with McCreery reflecting on both their busy work schedules and just wanting her all to himself.”

“I need a little you time, you time/ Red wine sippin’ in moonlight/ Your touch, your skin/ Your lips kissin’ on me all night/ I ain’t tryin’ to monopolize/ Your 24/7, 365/ But sometimes I need/ Just a little bit of me and/ You time, you time, you time,” he sings.

Fans can pre-save “You Time” HERE.

McCreery will return to the stage for a performance at the Ryman Auditorium on Friday, performing to a sold-out, limited capacity of 125 fans. His performance will be available to live stream HERE.
