Country music singer-songwriter Scotty McCreery waited over a year to release his first-ever No. 1 hit, "Five More Minutes." More on the song here!

After climbing the Billboard’s Country Airplay chart for 40 weeks, Scotty McCreery‘s “Five More Minutes” has reached the top!

The successful tune was written in 2015 alongside Frank Rogers and Monty Criswell and according to Scotty, was inspired by his grandfather Bill. Once it was completed Scotty tweeted, “I think I just wrote my favorite song ever written.” Fans seem to be loving the meaningful song as well!

Scotty first performed the heart-wrenching hit in 2016 at the Grand Ole Opry during the CMA Music Festival where he received a standing ovation. “Five More Minutes” is the country star’s lead hit in his forthcoming album, Seasons Change, which will be available for purchase everywhere on March 6th!

“Five More Minutes” Lyrics 

Eight years old a couple cane poles sitting down by the creek
Our lines in the water watching those bobbers seeing that red sun sink
Mama’s on the porch yelling supper’s hot, y’all come and get it
We yelled five more minutes
At sixteen it was twelve o three standing at her front door
Katie’s dad said midnight, but we needed just a little more
Yellow light flipping on and off, interrupting that goodnight kissing
We wanted five more minutes
Time rolls by the clock don’t stop
I wish I had a few more drops
Of the good stuff, the good times
Oh but they just keep on flying
Right on by like it ain’t nothing
Wish I had me a pause button
Moments like those Lord knows I’d hit it
And give myself five more minutes
At eighteen turned my helmet in and walked to the fifty yard line
Just the coach and me after we lost eighteen to nine
And I cried man next time to get in here I’ll have to buy a ticket
Can’t you give me five more minutes
Time rolls by the clock don’t stop
I wish I had a few more drops
Of the good stuff, the good times
Oh but they just keep on flying
Right on by like it ain’t nothing
Wish I had me a pause button
Moments like those Lord knows I’d hit it
And give myself five more minutes
At eighty-six my grandpa said there’s angels in the room
All the family gathered ’round knew the time was coming soon
With so much left to say I prayed Lord I ain’t finished
Just give us five more minutes
Time rolls by the clock don’t stop
I wish I had a few more drops
Of the good stuff, the good times
Oh but they just keep on flying
Right on by like it ain’t nothing
Wish I had me a pause button
Moments like those Lord knows I’d hit it
Yeah sometimes this old life will leave you wishing
That you had five more minutes
Five more minutes

Congrats to Scotty and share this news with other fans of this star!
