() Scotty McCreery is kicking off 2024 by giving fans new music, as his boisterous track "Can't Pass the Bar" that is now available via major streaming services along with an accompanying lyric video.
"I grew up loving '90s country music, especially the barn burning songs. I wanted one of my own, so I got together with some of my buddies and we wrote it," said McCreery. "Can't wait to perform this song live on the Cab in a Solo Tour."
Written by McCreery, Brent Anderson, Cale Dodds, and Frank Rogers and produced by Rogers, Derek Wells, and Aaron Eshuis, the rollicking ode to the working man finds McCreery celebrating a long week with a trip to the bar with his buddies.
When the long week's paychecks are cashed
Where we gonna spend it, buddy you ain't gotta ask
When the neon lights are kicking on, all of us are heading
To a home away from home
We don't look like much but we're pretty damn smart
For some good ole boys that can't pass the bar
The new music follows a blockbuster 2023 for the country crooner. He released his current radio single "Cab in a Solo," which garnered him the most first-week adds at country radio (120) of his career and is moving quickly up the charts, currently in the Top 20 on both Mediabase (#17) and Billboard (#20). He was inducted to the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame, joining previously inducted artists like Eric Church, Charlie Daniels, Andy Griffith, Ronnie Milsap, Thelonious Monk, Nina Simone, James Taylor, Randy Travis and more. And in December, one of his country music heroes, Garth Brooks, invited him to join the Grand Ole Opry, an honor that McCreery has dreamed about since he was a kid.
McCreery launches his 2024 headlining Cab in a Solo Tour later this month, where he will be joined by Anne Wilson as direct support as well as Greylan James and Noah Hicks on select dates. The tour, produced by Live Nation, will kick-off at Hobart Arena in Troy, OH on Jan. 26, 2024, and trek across the U.S. with stops in Atlanta, Philadelphia, Boston and more.
