Scotty McCreery and his wife Gabi McCreery recently announced that they are expecting their first child together. As well as becoming a father this fall, the country hitmaker revealed he has a number of exciting things going on in his career right now.
“We’re busy right now, we’re on the road a lot and playing gigs and kind of already starting the new record. So everything is going in the right direction. Everything is fine here,” he shared in an interview with the Skip Podcast Events.
The North Carolina native is no stranger to writing music that aligns with the various chapters of his life. His fifth studio album, same truckpretty much covers it all as he reflects on his influences growing up in “Damn Strait,” his romance with Gabi, and how far he’s come in his career.
Now that McCreery will be taking on a whole new role as a father, he expects to have a lot of new ideas to bring into the studio with him.
“Fortunately for me, I think I’m going to have a lot more material to write here in the next few months,” he told Audacy’s. Katie Neel. “I’ve written a lot of love songs. I’ve written a lot of songs about life. I’ve never written a baby song before. So this will be a first, it will be exciting.
His dedicated fans took to the comments to say congratulations and share their anticipation for the new generation of music he teased.
“I wish him all the success in the world… he deserves it,” wrote one user.
The longtime lovebirds have been side by side since they were kids and finally tied the knot in 2018 after six years of dating. They’ve taken time to have fun, make memories and adjust to married life, but things are about to change in the McCreery household.
They shared the pregnancy news exclusively with People through a series of adorable photos highlighting Gabi’s belly, ultrasound images and their son’s first pair of little cowboy boots.
“Just sharing a few of our favorite new family photos,” Gabi said alongside additional photos she posted on social media. “I feel so blessed and grateful for all the kind words this week! We can’t wait to share our little man with you all.
Their dog, the moose, was even able to be part of the photo shoot. Sporting his beautiful blue bandana, their four-legged family member was seen smiling in photos shared on their three social media pages. Moose’s popular Instagram page featured two of the images with the caption “Excited to be a big brother!”
Scotty McCreery kicked off the new year with his Same Truck tour which took him across the United States and even a few shows overseas for the C2C festival. On the face of it, he’ll end 2022 as busy as he started it, but this time it’ll be his little one who keeps him busy.
McCreery is scheduled to perform this weekend in Norman, OK (July 30).
