Scotty McCreery Reflects on 2019 No. 1 Hit “This Is It” as He Approaches 2nd Wedding Anniversary

Scotty McCreery, 26, and wife Gabi, 26, will celebrate their second wedding anniversary on June 16 (you’ve still got one week to get her a great present, Scotty).

The couple met in kindergarten in Garner, N.C., and grew up together in their close-knit North Carolina community. They began dating during their senior year at Garner High School.

Scotty’s 2019 No. 1 hit single, “This Is It,” has become intertwined with his anniversary. Scott penned the song with Frank Rogers and Aaron Eshuis about Gabi two weeks before asking her to marry him in September 2017. After his mountaintop proposal, Scotty played the song for Gabi for the first time about an hour later as their families gathered for a celebration.

As Scotty told Kix Brooks of American Country Countdown, the song brings back some special memories every time he performs it—or hears it.

“I wrote the song two weeks before we got engaged, and the first time I played it for her, she had just said ‘Yes,’” says Scotty. “I had her family and my family drive up and meet us, and I flew her sister in from Oklahoma, and they were all surprising her at the house. And then, we all sat down in the living room and I played it for her over the speakers. There were some waterworks, for sure. It was a pretty special moment.”
