Scotty McCreery debuted the official music video for his single “It Matters to Her” today on Scotty and his wife Gabi became parents on October 24 with the birth of their first child Merrick Avery. The couple shared personal photos and videos of their parenthood prep in the video.

McCreery told People, “To me, the video shows how much of a rock star Gabi was during her pregnancy. It also captures how much we both enjoyed getting ready for Avery’s arrival.”

The “It Matters to Her” video was filmed in North Carolina and directed by Jeff Ray, who has directed four other McCreery music videos (“Five More Minutes,” “This is It,” “In Between,” and “Damn Strait”).

Scotty said in a press release, “I wanted to focus the video on Gabi and our preparations for Avery’s arrival. We filmed some of it over the course of several months at home in Raleigh when we were getting the nursery ready. We also filmed some of it at our place at North Topsail Beach. I think you can see in the video how excited we were getting for Avery to get here as well as how amazing Gabi was throughout the entire pregnancy.”

“It Matters to Her” can be found on McCreery’s Same Truck: The Deluxe Album, which will be available this Friday, Novemver18, on vinyl, CD, and digital, and includes six additional new songs not found on the original album that came out last year, including the recently released tracks “Nothin’ Right” and “Small Town Stories.”
