Today country crooner Scotty McCreery battles heartache in his latest classically country track Cab in a Solo. Written by McCreery, Frank Rogers and Brent Anderson and produced by Rogers, Derek Wells, and Aaron Eshuis, Cab in a Solo offers the first taste of new music from McCreery since the release of his 2021 album Same Truck.

Full of nostalgia, a fresh storyline and Scotty's signature vocal, Cab in a Solo shares an intelligent new take on a classic country theme. The North Carolina native has always had a knack for offering more depth to a story and inviting fans in, and this single is no exception. Full of dynamic imagery Scotty tells the heart wrenching tale of trying to make a relationship right to only be let down and left drinking alone.

“Sittin’ here, I can’t believe what I just saw / Couple shadows kissin’ on the bedroom wall / It’s lookin’ like my plan didn’t work out at all / Heartbreak turned into broke up / So now I’m findin’ out how a heartbreak taste / With a Silver Oak, 1998 / Drinkin’ cab in a solo / Solo in the cab of my truck,”

All to often heartbreak tunes can provide a lackluster feel and seem overdone, yet McCreery's infectious charisma makes his heartbreak tune seems new! Steadfast in traditionalism and creating narratives for his fans to put themselves in Cab in a Solo is a masterclass in heartbreak tracks.

Earlier this summer McCreery joined the Brooks & Dunn REBOOT Tour 2023. He is currently out on the road for his own headlining tour with 25+ dates through the fall.

McCreery is among six inductees in the 2023 class scheduled to be enshrined in the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame during the annual induction ceremony this fall. The induction ceremony will take place on Thursday, October 19, 2023 at the Mooresville Performing Arts Center in Mooresville, N.C. VIP and General Reserved tickets are available HERE.

McCreery returns to the Grand Ole Opry on September 14 to perform as part of “Opry Country Classics.” He’ll be back on the Opry stage on December 3 as part of “Opry Country Christmas.” Tickets can be purchased for both shows at
