Billy Currington Hangs 10
Billy Currington claims the top of both the Country Aircheck and Billboard country charts this week with his single, “Don’t It,” giving him his 10th Number One single. The song, written by Jaren Johnston (The Cadillac Three), Ashley Gorley and Ross Copperman, is the first single from his forthcoming album, Summer Forever, which will be released on June 2nd.
Billy says he had no doubt the song was a hit from the first time he heard it.
“It’s just one of those songs when you first hear it, you’re like, ‘That’s it! That song sounds like a smash, and I’m so thankful that the songwriters sent it to me.’ Dann Huff worked really hard to get that groove set back in the pocket like it is. It wasn’t something that came in a few minutes of recording. We worked on it, and he got that magical feel to it, and I think that’s one of the main reasons it’s doing so well, ‘cause it’s a shuffle, and it’s hard to get those kind of songs right and get the right tempo and everything about that. And Dann did that.”
Billy is getting ready to head out on the Shotgun Rider tour with Tim McGraw beginning on June 5th in Little Rock, Arkansas.
