Scotty McCreery’s single “In Between” hit No. 1 on this week’s Mediabase Country Radio Singles Chart, earning him his third career No. 1, following “Five More Minutes” and “This Is It.”
“Earning a No.1 record on ‘In Between,’ which is a song that defines me, is amazing. I loved writing this song with Frank, Jessi and Jonathan and telling my story,” said McCreery. “Earning three No.1 songs in a row is the perfect way to celebrate Seasons Change and how that album changed my life. I want to thank country radio for supporting my music, my fans for believing in me from day one, and both my management team Triple 8 Management and my record label Triple Tigers Records for always having my back and working side by side with me every day.”
“In Between” is the third single from McCreery’s 2018 album, Seasons Change, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart. It follows his back-to-back No. 1s, the Platinum-certified hit “This Is It” and Double-Platinum “Five More Minutes.” Produced by Frank Rogers, McCreery co-wrote the song alongside Rogers, Jessi Alexander and Jonathan Singleton over four years ago the same week he wrote “Five More Minutes.”
“Thanks to our friends at country radio for three consecutive No. 1 hits from this album, as well as their continued strong belief in Scotty and his music,” said Norbert Nix, GM and Partner at Triple Tigers Records. “All of us at Triple Tigers are so proud to work with Scotty every day. We know the depth of his artistry and it is gratifying to see that radio knows it as well. And folks, we’re just getting started….”
“Hitting No. 1 is never easy, but our Triple Tigers team is excited and proud every day to get up and give 110% to an artist like Scotty who always does the same to support us, our radio partners and his fans,” shared Kevin Herring, Senior Vice President of Promotion at Triple Tiger Records.
“Everyone’s not all one thing or all the other. We all have many facets to our lives and different things we enjoy. It’s about knowing who you are and finding what’s right for you,” shared McCreery. “I wrote ‘In Between’ about really finding that balance and being happy with it.”
The song moved up four spots since last week on the chart and has ranked as Mediabase country panel’s most played and heard song for the June 15-21 tracking period, receiving ~7,876 spins (+1,546) and ~46.6 million audience impressions.
“In Between” is the third single off his latest album, Seasons Change, and was co-written by McCreery alongside Jessi Alexander, Jonathan Singleton, and Frank Rogers, the last of whom also produced it.
Kenny Chesney’s “Here and Now” moves into the No. 2 spot, while Luke Bryan’s “One Margarita” goes to No. 3, Sam Hunt’s “Hard To Forget” ascends to No. 4, and Miranda Lambert’s “Bluebird” rises two places to No. 5.
