Scotty McCreery, country music star and American Idol winner, just released his most recent song along with a video that will have you reaching for your tissues. The video, which includes touching home videos from McCreery's childhood, is dedicated to both of his grandfathers. 

According to Southern Living, McCreery wrote the song for his grandfather after he passed away. He explained, 

“My emotions were still pretty raw after losing my Granddaddy but talking about it is the best way to deal with those emotions.”

“I hope they gain an appreciation for their fathers, being Father’s Day, grandfathers and that they just learn to live in the moment. When I’m hearing this song, I tear up a little and I’ve heard others do too but I hope it’s good tears. I hope they are remembering the good times.” McCreery said. 

The country star also told PEOPLE there was always a camcorder around capturing memories when he was growing up. When it came time to make his newest music video, his family was able to share 48-hours worth of footage. 

“The whole song is talking about time, and time gone by, and time you still wish you had, and those home videos are precious moments,” McCreery told PEOPLE. “Everybody’s got those kind of videos that makes you look back on your life."
