Scotty McCreery Weaves Sweet Love Story in ‘This is It’ Lyric Video
Scotty McCreery tied the knot with his high school sweetheart Gabi Dugal on Saturday (June 16), and to celebrate, he is sharing a brand-new lyric video for his romantic song "This Is It." Readers can press play above to watch the song's lyrics play out against a stylized backdrop of the mountains of North Carolina, where McCreery popped the question to Dugal last September.
McCreery and Dugal, who met in kindergarten, held their wedding festivities in the same mountain setting where he proposed. "This Is It" tells the story of McCreery's love for Dugal and his heartfelt marriage proposal, and later wedding, in the woods; it was written by McCreery, Frank Rogers and Aaron Eshuis. The accompanying lyric video captures the rustic elegance of the North Carolina mountainscape, a spot that, Dugal tells People, the couple fell in love with during their courtship.
“She’s a rock for me and understands me like nobody else,” McCreery told CMT in 2017. “And she’s really been there through thick and thin with me, and she’s just awesome. I can’t say enough nice things about her. She’s another grounding force for me.”
"This is It" is the sixth track on McCreery's latest album, Seasons Change; it's an appropriately titled record for the singer, as he has not only released the new project and married the love of his life in the last year, but also signed a new record deal with Triple Tigers. McCreery, who was the Season 10 winner of American Idol in 2011, wrote all 11 tracks on the album, which was released in March.
