Scotty McCreery has rung in an eventful 2018, what with the chart-topping success of his album Seasons Change, a mature progression from his debut which ushered in a new era of accomplishment following his American Idol triumph in 2011.

Although the record received both critical and commercial acclaim, McCreery still has his eyes on what really matters—and that's his marriage to longtime girlfriend Gabi Dugal.

“2018 has been the greatest year of my life, especially because it’s the year I got to marry her,” McCreery relates to People. “She’s incredible and we make a great team, and to be able to go through life together is one of my biggest joys. She always sees the best in people so it rubs off on me when I’m having a down day. Just going home to her perks me up a little.”

The "Five More Minutes" singer wed Gabi in a ceremony in their home state of North Carolina on June 16. The music video for his single "This Is It" put together a series of clips from the wedding day, capturing special moments such as when he saw her for the first time in her gown and the emotion he felt watching her walk down the aisle.

McCreery wound down the year on the road with Jimmie Allen and Heather Morgan on his headlining Seasons Change Tour, which will extend into January 2019.
