In the five years since McCreery’s last album, the American Idol champ moved out on his own, traveled the country, lost his grandfather, and proposed to his high-school sweetheart. Those stories and others are recounted here in Seasons Change, a twangy soundtrack to big life changes. It’s written so that listeners can retrace his steps: feel the bliss of starting a new chapter (“Move It On Out”), cherish the gift of finding your soul mate (“Still”), and remember the folks you grew up with (“Boys from Back Home”). With his booming baritone and extraordinary sense for catchy hooks that echo late ’90s country, it’s quite possible McCreery was born to do this.
