Scotty McCreery earned his third consecutive chart-topping single this week as his latest hit, “In Between,” reached the top spot on both the Billboard and Mediabase/Country Aircheck charts.
McCreery also made Billboard chart history with “In Between” as it became the second-largest leap to No. 1 on the chart since 1991.
“In Between” is the third single from McCreery’s 2018 album, Seasons Change. Also included on that project are the country hitmaker’s previous chart-topping hits, “Five More Minutes” and “This Is It.”
“When we released Seasons Change two years ago, I was hoping I might get my first No. 1 song,” the North Carolina native told Billboard. “Now I’ve been blessed to earn three No. 1s, which means more than I can say. I love that ‘In Between’ has connected with people like it has, especially during this time of social distancing. I don’t believe any of us are just one thing or the other; I think we’re all somewhere in between.”
