Just one month after sharing “In Between (Acoustic),” Scotty McCreery is back with today’s release of “This is It (Acoustic).”The audio track, produced by McCreery’s bass player Nathan Thomas, the video was directed by Jeff Ray, who also directed the original “This is It” music video which was filmed at McCreery’s wedding.
We are proud to bring you the exclusive premiere of the video, watch it below.
The song is the second track from McCreery’s upcoming digital EP The Soundcheck Sessions. The project will be released in January along with a third song and video.
“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 McCreery. “It’s been very humbling to learn that a song I wrote for my wife Gabi and that 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.”
“This Is It (Acoustic)” was filmed and recorded on the stage of the Cascade Theatre in Redding, Calif. on Sept. 26, during the afternoon before the singer and his band performed at the venue. McCreery is accompanied by his guitarists/harmony vocalists Jeffrey Harper and Dylan Rosson on the acoustic track.
After taking a holiday break, McCreery will perform at the Horseshoe Casino’s Bluesville in Robinsonville, Miss. on Dec. 29, as well as during the halftime show at the Liberty Bowl in Memphis, Tenn. on Dec. 31. After the new year begins, McCreery will return the road on Jan. 17 in Wisconsin Dells, Wis. and on Jan. 18 in Washington, Ill. before joining Luke Bryan in Cancun for Crash My Playa.
