Scotty McCreery, the country superstar, recently shared a heartwarming photo of himself and his 10-month-old son, Merrick Avery McCreery, enjoying a day at the beach. The snapshot, taken at North Topsail Beach in North Carolina, showcases the father and son duo beaming with joy. McCreery captioned the photo on Instagram, "Beach dayz w/ my buddy," reflecting the special bond between the two.
Avery, as his son is affectionately called, will be turning one in October, and in his short time on earth, he has already made a significant impact on McCreery's life and music. The singer revealed that his upcoming album will feature a few "baby songs" inspired by his new role as a father. McCreery intends to share his personal experiences and lessons learned through his music, highlighting the shared experiences and relatability between individuals.
Furthermore, McCreery recently released his new single, "Cab In A Solo," giving fans a taste of what to expect from his highly anticipated album. The track garnered an incredible response from country radio stations, accumulating a staggering 120 first-week adds.

Expressing his gratitude towards the support from country radio, McCreery thanked them on Instagram and celebrated the milestone. This success further solidifies his ability to captivate audiences and underscores his ongoing popularity.
The new single, co-written by McCreery alongside Brent Anderson and Frank Rogers, is a heartfelt country anthem that tells the story of heartbreak and witnessing an ex moving on with someone new. The nostalgic lyrics combined with McCreery's soulful voice make for a powerful emotional experience.
As McCreery continues to work on his upcoming album, he promises to deliver a dose of traditional country music. With steel guitar player Mike Johnson in the studio, McCreery is excited to create music that embraces the roots of the genre. Although he hasn't announced a release date for the album yet, he hopes to share a new song on the radio in the coming month and release the album in early 2024.
In addition to his music career, McCreery will be honored in his home state of North Carolina when he is inducted into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame.
