Scotty McCreery has virtually grown up in front of our very eyes. From a bashful, but ridiculously talented teen during his stint on American Idol to a happily married young man, he has demonstrated himself to be a remarkable and decent human being with moral fortitude and strong character.
Hold on, though. He is still human and he’s one of the hottest acts in country music, so with that comes finding that balance of time at home with family and time on stage with your other family—your fans. There’s also a matter of dancing the blurred and ever moving line between the black and white, good and bad, right and wrong that is what adulthood brings.
That is what Scotty addresses in his new single and music video for “In Between.” The song describes how the young man has found his comfort zone in oscillating between extremes of too much and not enough: “I’m in between Friday night wild, and quiet Sunday morning / Between done after one, and keep on pouring.”
However the music video is more of Scotty in his extreme moments—on his honeymoon with wife, Gabí, or at home with Gabí, and pup, Moose versus those moments that he gets rowdy with his band before a show, or when he takes the stage in front of thousands for one of his high energy concerts. It’s obvious that the singer-songwriter is more than just content in both places, he’s downright euphoric, but maybe it’s that contentment that lies somewhere “In Between.”
