Christmas in Heaven, written by Paul Marino and Jeremy Johnson, is one of 11 holiday songs McCreery performs on his second album, Christmas with Scotty McCreery.
LifeWay Worship is a church worship resource provider and song publisher within LifeWay Christian Resources.
McCreery came to national fame after winning the 10th season of American Idol as well as prestigious industry awards, such as New Artist of the Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards and Best New Artist at the American Country Awards in December 2010. He was also ranked No. 1 on Billboard's list of Top New Country Artists for 2011.
These are exciting days for us at LifeWay Worship," said Craig Adams, manager of creative development and publishing for LifeWay Worship.
"Great songs always find their way," said Adams. "This one is distinctively Christmas. It will filter down through other artists, groups, churches, schools and choirs, even into other languages around the world." Adams expects Christmas in Heaven to become a new perennial Christmas favorite because of McCreery's talent and the message of the song. "It's the hope of heaven at Christmas," he said.
