Scotty McCreery released an acoustic version of his recent No. 1 single, “This Is It.”
The heartfelt tune, which Scotty co-penned with Frank Rogers and Aaron Eshuis about his then-fiancée Gabi Dugal, is featured on Scotty’s 2018 album, Seasons Change.
“I wrote ‘This Is It’ for Gabi,” says Scotty. “It’s our song. I played it for her just an hour after I proposed. I sang it to her at our wedding. She’s who I see in my mind when I perform it on the road every night. Watching our love story become my second No. 1 hit is something Gabi and I will treasure always. I am so thankful to country radio and my fans who have stood with me from day one for making my dreams come true.”
The acoustic version of the song is the second track from Scotty’s upcoming three-song EP, The Soundcheck Sessions, which will be released in January.
“Ever since we released the original version of ‘This is It,’ I have had so many requests from fans for an acoustic version that they could play during their own proposals and weddings,” said Scotty. “It’s been very humbling to learn that a song I wrote for my wife Gabi and tells our story has gone on to become something special for thousands of couples. As a songwriter, I don’t know that it gets any better than that.”
