Scotty McCreery is back with his next heartfelt single and music video. McCreery’s previous two singles, “Five More Minutes” and “This Is It” from his third studio album, Seasons Change reached the top of the country music charts. His fans were highly anticipating the next single off this album. The song “In Between” lyrically gives fans a step into his own world and was written by McCreery with Jonathan Singleton, Jessi Alexander, and Frank Rogers. The music video released just this past week does the same visually.
The video begins with an unconventional and classic split screen overlay. This primarily sets the wholesome tone of the entire video giving fans the impression of a cherished home video. It pans to areas of McCreery’s professional career playing for large crowds, flying all over the country then ushering into more family-oriented scenes with his wife and dog that both making adorable cameos. McCreery than echoes these moments of being caught in between these two ‘lives’ with the lyrics, “I’m in between/ Friday night wild/ And quiet Sunday morning.” Specific scenes of this video directed by Jay Ray stand-out such as the Raleigh water tower setting the hometown scene for the beginning of the video. In addition, the still black and white pictures at the end of the video show a mix of McCreery’s life through pictures of him and his wife’s family lifestyle and where his professional music career has taken him.
“In Between” is such a special video for McCreery and fans alike because it gives them insight into his life. McCreery recently said to USA TODAY Network where the visual originally premiered, “It’s about really knowing who I am,’ McCreery said. “Hopefully, folks will hear it and not only get to know me a little bit better but as they continue to listen, hopefully, they can better know themselves as well.” The music video for “In Between” fully reflects the lyrics McCreery sings in this song mirroring both important aspects of his life: family and music.
