Scotty McCreery Debuts New Song About Late Grandfather

Eric AdkinsScotty McCreery became a trending topic on Facebook over the weekend when the Grand Ole Opry posted the video for his June 10 performance of new song “Five More Minutes” on YouTube, where it now has more than 176,000 views.

As McCreery emotionally explains in the video, he wrote the poignant story song just a few weeks after losing a grandfather he was very close to. Said McCreery, “He’s never heard this song, but I know he’s watching and very proud of me.”

In the lyrics, McCreery sings, “At 86 my grandpa said there’s angels in the room/With 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.”
