"This Is It" is McCreery's second ever No. 1 and second consecutive No. 1 hit off his Seasons Change album.

He co-wrote all 11 songs on Seasons Change. All four of his albums have debuted at No. 1 on a Billboard Albums chart, with current combined sales surpassing 3 million copies.
Scotty’s earned four Platinum and two Gold singles; won the 10th season of "American Idol" in 2011; was named the ACM New Artist of the Year in 2011; won the CMT Music Award for Breakthrough Video of the Year ("The Trouble with Girls") in 2012; American Country Awards for New Artist of the Year in 2011 and Breakthrough Artist of the Year in 2013; BMI Awards for writing One of the Top 50 Country Songs of the Year twice (in 2015 for "See You Tonight" and in 2018 for "Five More Minutes"); a Carolina Beach Music Award for National Dance/Shag Song of the Year ("Barefootin'") in 2018; and the NSAI Nashville Songwriter Award for One of the Top Ten Songs I Wish I’d Written ("Five More Minutes") in 2018.
The North Carolina native released his first book, Go Big or Go Home: The Journey Toward the Dream, in 2016. McCreery launched his recording career by making history in 2011 as both the first country artist and the youngest male artist of any genre to debut his first studio album, the Platinum-certified Clear as Day, at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard Top 200 Albums chart.
