SCOTTY MCCREERY - Slow Dance - Triple Tigers

On February 29th, country star Scotty McCreery formally announced that the title of his forthcoming album will be ‘Rise & Fall.’  The highly-anticipated collection, with a-to-be-determined due date, will feature some previously-released songs, as well as his latest tune, which is sure to be a fan-favorite.  “Slow Dance” is available now via Triple Tigers on all streaming platforms.

“I’ve had a lot of folks ask over the years, Scotty you got this deep voice why don’t you use it,” McCreery said.  “I thought about that, and wanted to write a song for ya’ll.”

“Slow Dance” is a refreshingly traditional love song, laced with elements of classic George Strait and Brooks & Dunn to satisfy the fan of 80’s and 90’s country in all of us.  It’s a tender, sweet, and vulnerability honest ode to that special someone, proclaiming love in a down-to-earth, storytelling nature that only a classic country song can do.

“Ninety miles an hour, I can’t even get my foot on the brakes

In this old rat race

A hundred people, hundred places, girl, there’s always somewhere I gotta be

But you know what I need

When this life has got me movin’ at the speed of sound

Only you can turn me around”

The song is riddled with steel guitar and the mid-tempo melodies that made us fall in love with traditional country music years ago.  Straight from the dance hall speakers to the ears of fans of all ages and backgrounds, “Slow Dance” showcases McCreery’s undeniably gifted vocal delivery.  His range and flexibility steal the show, beautifully supposed by the clean, catchy melody that will have us all swaying and tapping through the 3+ minutes of crooning musical satisfaction.

“Slow Dance” follows McCreery’s latest single, “Cab in a Solo,” as well as the previously-released “Can’t Pass the Bar” and “Love Like This.”  McCreery kicked off his Cab In A Solo Tour on January 26th in Troy, OH, as the trek will take him to select markets around the country through mid-March.  The North Carolina native enjoyed a monumental year in 2023, one that saw him tally the most first-week adds at country radio of his career.  He was inducted into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame, and was also invited by the one and only Garth Brooks to join the Grand Ole Opry.  While “Cab in a Solo” is still impacting charts and radio, McCreery will undoubtedly remain a constant in the country music mainstream with the impending release of ‘Rise & Fall’ to the masses this year.
