Hallmark Movies & Mysteries
Tickets for McCreery’s 2022 Same Truck Tour On Sale Now

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Inspired by Triple Tigers recording artist Scotty McCreery’s RIAA Double-Platinum Certified No. 1 single “Five More Minutes,” Hallmark Movies & Mysteries will premiere the television movie “Five More Minutes” this Saturday, Nov. 20 at 10 pm ET (9 pm CT), as part of their Miracles of Christmas celebration. Watch the trailer HERE.
Written by Nikki Deloach and Megan McNulty, the film stars Deloach and David Haydn-Jones as a woman’s Christmas wish is answered in unexpected ways when her late grandfather’s journal turns up and reveals an untold romance. Though he is not in the movie, McCreery serves as an Executive Producer. 
Co-written with Frank Rogers and Monty Criswell, McCreery shared, “It was a special day writing this one. We all sat down, and at first, I was just talking about my granddaddy. I always believed in it and thought it was a story that everyone could relate to—I feel like everyone has these things that they go back to and wish they had more time. We worked on this song for three or four different days, and a lot changed, and it took a while, but I wanted it to be perfect.”
Released as the first song from his RIAA Gold-certified album Seasons Change, “Five More Minutes” was ranked No. 2 on the iTunes country singles chart and No. 9 on the iTunes all-genre singles chart on the first day of its release in 2017, while it debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard Country Digital Sales Chart.
Earlier this week, McCreery’s third consecutive No. 1 single from Seasons Change, the RIAA Gold-certified “In Between” was named one of the 
Most Performed Songs of the Year at the 69th Annual BMI Country Awards.
Following his fourth consecutive No. 1 single “You Time” and the release of his fifth studio album Same TruckMcCreery recently announced plans for his 2022 Same Truck Tour across the U.S., as well as four new dates in Germany and the Netherlands, where fans can expect to hear his new single, “Damn Strait,” along with his multiple RIAA Platinum and Gold certified hits from throughout his decade-long career.

McCreery released Same Truck to applause from fans and critics, with 
Billboard sharing that hitmaker “continues proving his mettle not only in the recording booth, but in the writing room, as a co-writer on the bulk of the project’s songs,” while Tennessean shares, “McCreery walks a sonic tightrope that leans into his country influences while not abandoning modern Music Row hitmaking.”

Same Truck was produced by Rogers, Aaron Eshuis and Derek Wells, the team who produced Seasons Change, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart. McCreery co-wrote every song on that album.
