When you’re a big-time country star, your birthday has got to be next level insanity. Greetings must pour in from around the world as every fan who has ever fallen in love with your music wishes you well. Then there are the “happy birthday” wishes from your peers, your team and pals. Then there’s celebrating with family.

It would be impossible to pick which sentiment carries the most weight, and we’re sure they’re all special, but when Scotty McCreery’s dad shared a birthday wish for his pride and joy on social media, we could help but feel a little sentimental ourselves.

Mike McCreery’s Instagram post featured a four-square of photos—two of him and his boy together, one of Scotty on the Grand Ole Opry stage and one of Scotty and new fiancée Gabi holding hands and walking into the sunset.

To accompany the sweet collage, Mike wrote, “Hanging out on the beach, enjoying our favorite teams play, watching you follow your dreams or seeing you move to the next chapter in life, @scottymccreery always remember one thing: Your dad is very proud of you and will always be there no matter what. Happy 24th. Pops.”

Tissues, please.

A peek at Scotty’s schedule shows that he’s off the road tonight. And although we aren’t sure if he’s in Nashville, North Carolina or someplace else in the world, we’re looking forward to seeing how he celebrated tomorrow!
