Country music star Scotty McCreery has had an incredible year— he hit No. 1 on the charts with “Five More Minutes,” released his Seasons Change album which also peaked at No. 1, spent a lot of time on the road, and married the love of his life!
“2018 has been the greatest year of my life, especially because it’s the year I got to marry her,” Scotty gushed about his wife, Gabi Dugal McCreery, to PEOPLE. “She’s incredible and we make a great team, and to be able to go through life together is one of my biggest joys. She always sees the best in people so it rubs off on me when I’m having a down day. Just going home to her perks me up a little.”
This holiday season, the newlyweds have been forming their very own traditions— including cutting down their own Christmas tree and spending Christmas Day with Gabi’s family in Louisiana.
“One of the traditions Gabi wanted to start this year was for us to go to the mountains of North Carolina and find our own tree and cut it and all that. Let me just say that trees look a lot smaller on the side of a massive mountain,” the country star confessed to the outlet.
After scoring the perfect tree and working hard to get it into their home, Scotty knew he needed to get his bride the perfect gift for their first official Christmas as a married couple.
“Gabi has been asking for a piano for like five years, so that’s what I’m getting for her,” revealed Scotty. “We are getting a studio room together at home so it will go there.”
With 2018 ending on a high note, the pair will go into the New Year with some exciting new changes on the horizon! Gabi will transition from being a pediatric cardiac intensive care unit nurse to working in the pediatric bone marrow unit. Scotty will also be busy with work in the studio with some potential new singles coming in 2019!
