Scotty McCreery, "Five More Minutes"
Scotty McCreery is having the last laugh with his newest single "Five More Minutes," which just rose to Number One on the country airplay chart – all after getting dropped from his record label and assuming that his career had met its untimely end. McCreery co-wrote the song inspired by the death of his grandfather, and it lets him settle deep into his classic vocal sensibilities and meld it all with a knack for sophisticated yet pop-friendly ballads. Country doesn't have a lot of comeback kids, but "Five More Minutes" is a testament to good ol' perseverance. M.M.
