Scotty McCreery launched his Seasons Change Tour on Thursday (Nov. 29), in Texas and was appreciative of the overwhelming response from his fans to his first three shows.
“After planning the Seasons Change Tour for so long, it was exciting to finally begin,” Scotty said in a statement. “The fans at the first three dates in Texas were amazing and really brought out the best in me and my band. We can’t wait for the next shows!”
Scotty continues the tour later this week and will bring along Jimmie Allen and Heather Morgan as openers. The tour runs through January.
In addition to his tour kickoff, Scotty learned that the video for current single, “This Is It,” has amassed 22 million views. The video recounts Scotty’s wedding day to now-wife Gabi Dugal. The couple became engaged in October 2017 after the 23-year-old proposed at their favorite spot, a mountaintop in North Carolina.
“After I finished the third night of my #SeasonsChangeTour tonight, I learned that my “This is It” music video has surpassed 22 million views. Awesome!” he excitedly shares on Twitter.

The song itself was inspired by his proposal to Gabi last year.
“This is it / This is now / This is what I’ve been talking ’bout / Looking out can’t you see forever? / Take my hand just take it in / This is a moment we won’t forget / On top of the world here together / If there ever was a time for a perfect kiss, this is it,” he sings in the song’s chorus.
Seasons Change, Scotty’s first new album in five years, was released in March.
