Scotty McCreery is sharing his first months of fatherhood with fans in a new music video for his single “It Matters To Her.”

Movieguide® previously reported on the birth of McCreery’s son:

AMERICAN IDOL winner Scotty McCreery and his wife Gabi have just welcomed their first child, Merrick “Avery” McCreery.

Their son was born October 24, in Raleigh, North Carolina. 

In a joint Instagram statement, the couple wrote, “Never known a love like this. Merrick ‘Avery’ McCreery joined us 11 days early on October 24th at 4:34am! 7 lbs 13oz of nothin but love.”

The couple thanked everyone for their prayers, before writing, “Healthy baby and a healthy mama! Praise God.”

McCreery also posted a selfie of the family, with the caption, “Welcome home, Avery!”

McCreery and Gabi are high school sweethearts who’ve known each other since kindergarten. They got married in 2018.

The new music video shows photos and videos of McCreery and his wife as they prepared to welcome Avery, from ultrasound images to videos of them putting together baby furniture. 

“To me, the video shows off how much of a rock star Gabi was during her pregnancy,” McCreery shared. “It also captures how much we both enjoyed getting ready for Avery’s arrival.”

McCreery also talked about the creation of the song. 

“We had the songs picked [for my album], and I called my label that night — I was in my gym, and I was working out, and I had the song playing on repeat. Rhett Akins had just sent me his demo,” he recalled. “I was like, ‘Dang, I think I really like this … we gotta record this.'”

The singer is releasing a deluxe version of his new album, Same Truck, with six new songs, including “a baby song or two.”
