Originally, Scotty McCreery‘s “This Is It” was simply a song he wrote to play for his longtime girlfriend, Gabi Dugal, after he proposed.

This week, Scotty’s engagement song becomes his second number one, several months after he tied the knot with Gabi last June in their native North Carolina.

“It’s been incredible,” Scotty says of the song’s journey. “I think one of the things that this song has done is kind of invited folks into our lives.”

“And especially the music video,” he continues, “that was kind of our way to invite everybody to the wedding, without inviting everybody to the wedding. I only had about two hundred spots for friends and family.”

The “This Is It” music video features footage from Scotty and Gabi’s wedding last summer. To hear the American Idol winner talk, you get the impression there are many more songs to come about his wife.

“I love talking about Gabi,” Scotty smiles, “I love singing about Gabi, and she’s my best friend and I wrote this song for her, and the fact that I get to share that with everybody is wonderful.”

“This Is It” is the second number one from Scotty’s chart-topping album, Seasons Change. The first, “Five More Minutes,” is now closing in on double platinum certification.

'The Bachelor' recap: The drama amps up as four women are shown the door, and one walks away

No Comments

By ABC News Radio

ABC/Craig Sjodin(NEW YORK) — On Monday night’s episode of The Bachelor, the journey came to a painful end for five women, including two bitter rivals, one disillusioned woman, one whose declaration of love ended in heartbreak, and one whose worst fears were confirmed.

After accusations of lying and bullying between Nicole and Onyeka had Colton storming out of the rose ceremony last week, he reentered the room saying that after a “hard” and “emotional” night, he would “follow his heart.” When the seven remaining roses were handed out, both ladies were sent packing.

Following the rose ceremony, Colton and the remaining women hoped for a reset in Vietnam. The first one-on-one was a spa date that went to Hannah G. The date went well, but Colton needed to see what was behind the perpetually happy front she seemed to put on for people. Later, the two bonded over each other’s stories about their parents’ divorces. Colton said Hannah opening up brought the two closer. He offered her the rose, promising that would always provide “a place to laugh,” and “a shoulder to cry on.”

A group date card for Cassie, Heather, Tayshia, Caelynn, Katie, Hannah B., Sydney and Demi asked if they were ready to “fight for love,” and sure enough, the ladies were trained in the Vietnamese martial art of Vovinam and then literally fought for love in a series of intense sparring matches.

At the after-party, Katie shared an emotional exchange with Colton, revealing that she feared her inability to show her emotions might’ve given him the wrong impression about her. Colton appreciated Katie showing her vulnerable side and encouraged her to “let go” and be herself.”

Then things got a little awkward when Sydney couldn’t contain her disillusionment and pressed Colton on why she hadn’t gotten a one-on-one with him. Colton’s explanation that he “opens up differently in different relationships” and “every relationship moves at different paces” didn’t ease Sydney’s mind. She put all her cards on the table and, as with Elyse in last week’s episode, told Colton she, too, needed to leave.

But Sydney offered Colton a piece of advice before she left: “There’s some very wonderful people in that group [but] don’t be distracted by shiny things…figure out what you came here to find.” While Sydney doesn’t name names, she’s referring specifically to Hanna B. and Demi. Colton seemed to take Sydney’s words to heart, as Tayshia — one of the good ones, in Sydney’s opinion — got the date rose.

Colton’s talk with Sydney also seemed to play into his decision to explore his relationship with the seemingly shy Kirpa a little further on the final one-on-one date. After a day of scuba diving, she opened up about her previous engagement to a man she knew for eight years who, like Colton, was “saving himself” for the right woman. After assuring Colton that she was ready to dive into marriage again after her past experience, Kirpa took home the date rose.

What Colton didn’t realize is that the night wasn’t yet over. He received a late-night visit from Demi, who felt a need to take her relationship to the next level. Her declaration of love for Colton ended in disappointment when he told her he didn’t have the same feelings for her. Demi became the fourth woman to exit the competition, but not before warning Colton that while some girls may seem like the “safe” choice, they won’t make him happy in the long run.

The events of the past week had the remaining ladies feeling less secure about their relationships with Colton, and their hopes for one last chance to talk with him were dashed when he decided to forego the cocktail party and head straight to rose ceremony. There, Katie was the odd girl out, leaving the house. As they said their goodbyes, Katie joined the chorus of women warning Colton that some of the remaining ladies weren’t ready for marriage. Thinking he had already weeded out the riff-raff, Colton was even more confused about the choices he’d made.

The seven remaining women are:

Caelynn, 23, Miss North Carolina 2018 from Charlotte, North Carolina
Cassie, 23, a speech pathologist from Huntington Beach, California
Hannah B., 24, Miss Alabama 2018 from Tuscaloosa, Alabama
Hannah G., 23, a content creator from Birmingham, Alabama
Heather, 23, has been kissed from Carlsbad, California
Kirpa, 26, a dental hygienist from Whittier, California
Tayshia, 28, a phlebotomist from Corona Del Mar, California

The Bachelor returns Monday night at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

ChristopherBernard/iStock(SOUTH LYON, Mich.) — A Michigan man died on the job after he fell into a vat containing sulfuric acid.

The man, a 54-year-old resident of South Lyon, was an employee at the manufacturing company, Michigan Seamless Tube, the South Lyon Fire Department confirmed to ABC News.

The man was checking to see if a solution in the vat was 10 to 12 percent sulfuric acid when he fell in, South Lyon Fire Department Chief Robert Vogel told ABC News.

The fire department was called to the scene at around 12:20 p.m. on Feb. 9, Vogel said.

The man was pulled out of the vat by two coworkers and was transported to the hospital where he died approximately 11 hours later at 11:30 p.m., officials said.

“He lived in some of the worst pain imaginable,” Vogel told ABC News.

Michigan Seamless Tube released a statement expressing their condolences.

“A valued Michigan Seamless Tube employee was involved in a serious industrial accident on Saturday afternoon. The employee was taken to The University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor. He did not survive his injuries and passed way at the hospital,” the statement read. “The employee was 54 years of age. The Company is conducting a comprehensive investigation of the accident and is cooperating with the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration.”

Vogel tells ABC News that the Michigan Occupational safety and Health Administration is also investigating the incident.

Baby found in middle of California road with umbilical cord still attached

No Comments


KFSN-TV(MADERA, Calif.) — Police are searching for a woman who allegedly left a newborn baby lying in the middle of a rural California road in frigid temperatures.

The Madera County Sheriff’s Office in central California said a newspaper delivery person found the newborn baby girl early Monday morning, lying “on the center line of a roadway” with her umbilical cord still attached.

The newspaper carrier said he took the baby into his vehicle to keep the child warm and dialed 911 immediately.

“It’s very fortunate that the child was discovered by the newspaper delivery person before she was seriously injured or even possibly killed,” Madera County Undersheriff Tyson Pogue said at a press conference Monday night.

The baby was wrapped in a blanket and wearing a one-piece flannel pajama set, Pogue said. She was transported to a local hospital and was said to be in good condition.

Authorities estimated the baby was on the road for a matter of minutes.

A witness said he encountered a woman with a baby near the scene, just minutes before the infant was found.

He said the woman approached him with the infant in her arms and begged him to take the child.

“He was approached by a female driving a white, smaller SUV. This female got out of her car, asked the man if he could help her and asked him to take her child,” Pogue said. “The man directed her to the fire station and the Valley Children’s Hospital down the street and suggested she take the baby there.”

The witness described the suspect as a Hispanic woman in her early 20s, who was driving a smaller white SUV, Pogue said. The suspect could face felony charges of child endangerment and possibly attempted murder, he said.

Pogue said the baby was “cold” when she was rescued, but she’s expected to recover.

“Luckily, she was discovered early enough that she’ll make a full recovery,” Pogue. “We’d like to remind everyone that there are many safe surrender sites that will allow someone to surrender a newborn child without any questions asked.”

He said anyone with information about a potential suspect should contact the Madera County Sheriff’s Office immediately.
