Scotty McCreery's tapping into all things fatherhood in his new song, "Love Like This."
Scotty penned the heartfelt ode with frequent collaborators Frank Rogers and Aaron Eshuis as a tribute to his 1-year-old son, Avery, and wife, Gabi.
"When I first laid eyes on you, that’s when I knew/ I’ve never known a love like this, I’ve never felt this way/ Girl, I think I might have thought I did/ But everything changed today/ 'Cause I’m looking at you, looking at him/ And I don’t have a clue what this feeling is/ But watching you give our baby boy a kiss/ Now I know I’ve never known a love like this, no," goes the real-life-inspired chorus.
"Becoming a father is the greatest thing that’s happened to me," says Scotty. "Raising Avery as he grows and watching my wife Gabi be a rock star as his Mom has been the joy of my life these last 15 months. I knew I wanted to write a song about Avery. I even photographed the room number on the hospital door so I could put that into the lyrics."
"Love Like This" is the latest preview of Scotty's forthcoming new album. It was preceded by "Can't Pass the Bar" and "Cab in a Solo," which is in the top 15 of the country charts.
