What Is Hallmark’s Five More Minutes About?
Ready to learn more about Five More Minutes, the Hallmark movie based on the Scotty McCreery song? According to the press release, Christmas at the Candy Cane Confectionary has been bringing joy and delicacies to the community for over 50 years.
However, when, Jerry (Keenleyside), dies suddenly, it is his granddaughter Clara (DeLoach), and her mother Bonnie (Miller) who now have to face the Christmas holidays without him.
All Clara wishes for is just five more minutes with this very grandfather who was always there for her, especially during tough times. Seems that she asked for a Christmas wish, as she got an unexpected surprise.
Out of the blue, a journal from her grandfather’s past turns up in the store and a young man named Jay (Jones) answers a help wanted post. Through her grandfather’s journal, Clara discovers his first great love from the past as she faces her feelings about her own first love in the present day with Logan (Haydn-Jones). Meanwhile, Bonnie may have the chance to love again.

Will Scott McCreery Be In Five More Minutes Movie?
Hallmark’s Five More Minutes Christmas movie was inspired by the Scotty McCreery song. Will the American Idol star be in the movie? No, the country star is not in the movie, not even in a cameo. However, he is one of the executive producers.
What this may become is a franchise, like Blake Shelton’s Time For series. This year, there is a fourth movie in the series. Those movies include Time for Me To Come Home For Christmas, Time For You To Come Home For Christmas, and Time For Us To Come Home For Christmas.
In 2021, there will be a new movie in the series, called Time For Them To Come Home For Christmas, starring two Hallmark fan-favorites, Jessy Schram and Brendan Penny.
All of these movies are based on the original Blake Shelton song. In addition, he is an executive producer. However, he has not been in the movies.
Could Scotty McCreery end up with a franchise like this? That is very possible. “Five More Minutes” is a song that has resonated with so many people. The message of spending just “five more minutes” with a lost loved one could certainly spawn a series.
