2015 Taste of Country Music Festival Lineup Profile: Billy Currington
The 41-year-old country star is one of the genre's most consistent hitmakers, cranking out eight No. 1 singles since he debuted in 2003. His self-titled first album scored two Top 10 hits with "Walk a Little Straighter" and "I Got a Feelin'," and he hit the top of the chart again with "Must Be Doin' Somethin' Right" and "Good Directions" (co-written by a then-little-known songwriter named Luke Bryan) from his sophomore album.
Other Currington fan favorites include "People Are Crazy," "That's How Country Boys Roll," "Pretty Good at Drinkin' Beer" and "Let Me Down Easy." The singer-songwriter has a way with good-time, easygoing material, but with one of the most identifiable voices in country music, he can also deliver a heartbreaking song like few others.
Currington's most recent album, We Are Tonight, scored him two more chart-toppers with the title song and "Hey Girl," and he recently released a new track, "Don't It," which is the lead single from a forthcoming studio album. Expect to hear that along with a long string of hits when Currington performs at the 2015 Taste of Country Music Festival, which runs June 12-14 at Hunter Mountain, N.Y.
