The 27-year-old part Puerto Rican country singer and former American Idol champion gets his heart stolen all over again with a newly-released track, sharing the flirtatious fun of “Why You Gotta Be Like That.”

Featuring an upbeat sway and a breezy, sunshine-country sound, the feel-good anthem captures a moment of unexpected and effortless romance. Getting caught off guard by his partner’s casual beauty, McCreery matches his rumbling baritone with a can’t-get-over-you chorus, and says the track was inspire by his wife, Gabi.

McCreery co-wrote “Why You Gotta Be Like That” with James McNair, and Jordan Schmidt, thinking back to an everyday moment that took his breath away.

“My wife Gabi and I had a date night the evening before I wrote ‘Why You Gotta Be Like That’ with James and Jordan. She came downstairs looking gorgeous as usual, and well … the song tells the rest of the story,” McCreery explains. “Writing with James and Jordan is always so much fun, and I think that genuine feeling comes through in the song as well.”

“Baby why you gotta wear them jeans / Hair down and a white tank top / Baby why you gotta be so mean / Looking so good, I can’t stop / My hands from touching your body / You know I love it but I got to ask / Baby why, baby why / Baby why you gotta be like that,” goes the smitten chorus hook.

Part of McCreery’s upcoming (but still unannounced) fifth album, the new track was released alongside McCreery’s current radio single “You Time,” which is now rising through the Top 15 on Mediabase/Country AircheckCountry Singles chart.

Both tunes speak to McCreery’s focus during the pandemic slowdown, which saw him writing songs and building his virtual performance skills. But he’s now back to using his chart-topping country baritone in person.

His You Time Tour began in June and continues through September, and in between those headlining dates McCreery will join Old Dominion for their Live from the Ballpark Tour, while also performing alongside Chris YoungBrooks & Dunn and more.
