Scotty McCreery landed his first No. 1 hit this past weekend. McCreery’s newest single, “Five More Minutes,” went Number 1 on Billboard and Mediabase/Country Aircheck's Country Airplay charts. The song generated 500,000 streams and sales, receiving its RIAA Gold Certification.
After hearing about his accomplishment, an overjoyed McCreery said, “There was a time I thought this song would never see the light of day. Seeing this song, inspired by my Granddaddy Bill, go Gold and then become my first number one means the world to me! After writing it with Frank Rogers and Monty Criswell, I tweeted out that 'I think I just wrote my favorite song I've ever written,' and that still holds true today."
