Scotty McCreery gave an impressive performance of Deana Carter’s debut single “Strawberry Wine” on Wednesday (July 1) evening during the CMA Summer Stay-Cay special.
“I’m excited to be apart of this,” McCreery boasted as he introduced his performance. “I get the pleasure of singing one of my favorite songs, it’s one of the biggest in ’90s history and in Country music history.”
“Strawberry Wine” was written by Matraca Berg and Gary Harrison, and was released as Carter’s debut single in August 1996. The track appears on Carter’s debut album, Did I Shave My Legs For This?.
The song also became Carter’s first No. 1 hit on both the US Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) Chart and the Canadian RPM Country Tracks.
McCreery recently celebrated his third consecutive chart-topping single with “In Between.” He also made Billboard chart history with “In Between” as it became the second-largest leap to No. 1 on the chart since 1991.
