Although the first song from his upcoming album is still working its way up the Top 10, Scotty McCreery has already dropped a second single – which he says was written about a subject that’s near and dear to his heart.

“Carolina to Me,” which is from the upcoming album “Same Truck,” is nothing short of a love letter to North Carolina, which is where McCreery grew up. “To me, North Carolina is just a little piece of Heaven on Earth,” McCreery says.

“And I hope when I get to Heaven, there’s a little bit of North Carolina in it.”

Not that McCreery has actually seen North Carolina in the past few months. He’s been on the road since June, delivering performances on his “You Time” Tour. “Same Truck” is due to drop September 17.

Do most country artists have songs about their roots or childhood homes?
