Scotty McCreery’s “Carolina to Me,” an Ode to His Home State

Scott McCreery’s “Carolina to Me”, an Ode to His Home State
by

Ten years after winning “American Idol,” the country favorite is giving fans another taste of new music. We finally got to listen to Scotty McCreery’s “Carolina to Me” from his highly anticipated album, Same Truck.

Scotty McCreery co-wrote the country song with Taylor Phillips and Jeremy Bussey, wherein he revealed his great love for North Carolina – from its deep forests, beautiful landscapes to having some of the best beaches in the United States and simply everything in between. It finds him recalling his childhood memories and making several references to his Christian faith and upbringing. 

“To me, North Carolina is just a little piece of Heaven on Earth, and I hope when I get to Heaven, there’s a little bit of North Carolina in it,” McCreery said about “Carolina to Me,” adding that it hits home to him “being on the road touring and missing home.”

And just like most of Scotty McCreery songs, the timeless message of the traditional country tune comes in a rootsy, classic-country sound, featuring acoustic guitar. Country star Alison Krauss also joined McCreery to offer harmonies. McCreery admitted that he was honored to have an artist with “such an iconic and beautiful voice” agree to join him in his song, taking the song over the top.

Meanwhile, Same Truck – which has just arrived last September 17 – is said to represent McCreery’s new level of maturity, as he celebrates his decade-long career as an entertainer and his new life as a married man. The project will feature twelve songs, including “Why You Gotta Be Like That” and its lead single “You Time,” which ranked No. 7 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.

Tune in below and listen to “Carolina to Me” by Scott McCreery.
