Scotty McCreery’s Grandma Loves His New Single, ‘Five More Minutes’

Scotty McCreery officially released his new single, “Five More Minutes,” after getting the seal of approval from one very important fan: his grandmother.

McCreery shared a photo to Instagram on the day the song dropped, showing his sweet “Grandma Janet” sitting in a hospital chair, smiling as she listens to the song with the singer and his sister, Ashley, standing over her, looking equally happy.

“If you’re gonna release a new single, you better make sure grandma likes it. Luckily, #FiveMoreMinutes is grandma approved! Glad to see grandma Janet doing a little better this week!” McCreery writes next to the heartwarming photo.

The 23-year-old singer has been performing “Five More Minutes” live for some time, but recently released it to radio. The emotional song is a personal one for McCreery, as it references the passing of his beloved grandfather, Bill.

“He’s never heard this song, but I know he’s watching and very proud of me, the fact that I’m at the Grand Ole Opry tonight,” McCreery shared when taking the stage for a performance at the Opry in 2016.

McCreery revealed late last year that he was in the process of working on new music.
