Scotty McCreery’s “Amazing” Wife Helps Keep Things in Perspective: “When I Hear About What She Sees as a Nurse, You Realize What’s Important”

Scotty McCreery’s “Amazing” Wife Helps Keep Things in Perspective: “When I Hear About What She Sees as a Nurse, You Realize What’s Important”

Scotty McCreery is trying to score his third consecutive No. 1 single with “In Between,” which is currently No. 22 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart after 45 weeks. Penned by Scotty, Frank Rogers, Jessi Alexander and Jonathan Singleton, “In Between” follows previous No. 1 singles “Five More Minutes” and “This Is It.” All three songs are from Scotty’s 2018 album, Seasons Change.

With lyrics like “I’m in between / Friday night wild / And quiet Sunday morning / Between / Done after one / And keep on pouring / Ain’t too high / Ain’t too low / Just holding down the middle / I’m steady as I go,” the tune conjures up references to those years in your early 20s when you’re on your own for the first time and trying to find a balance in your life.

As Scotty told Kix Brooks of American Country Countdown, his wife Gabi, whom he married in June 2018 after six years of dating, helps keep him balanced now.

“Oh, she’s incredible,” says Scotty. “I mean, she’s just a breath of air for me and the crazy world I see every day I travel, but when I come home, I just have a consistent love and an amazing woman that I get to come home to every day. She works hard—she’s a nurse—I mean, she’s doing the hard stuff. I get to sing for a living, but she’s really changing lives.”

Scotty says that Gabi’s job as a nurse helps keep things in perspective when he’s on the road.

“We get to complaining about little things on the road, like if our bus Wi-Fi’s not working. And, we’re like, ‘Man, that’s such a little thing compared to what a lot of folks are dealing with,’ so when I hear what she sees at work, you realize what’s important in life.”
