Billy Currington Takes ‘Don’t It’ to No. 1, Making It Ten at the Top
Curly-haired country crooner Billy Currington has just scored his tenth No. 1 song with the infectious hook-up jam "Don't It," hitting the top spot on both the Billboard and Mediabase charts this week.
Co-written by the Cadillac Three's Jaren Johnston along with Ashley Gorley and Ross Copperman, "Don't It" is the lead single from Currington's sixth studio album, Summer Forever, which comes out June 2.
"Ever since I first visited Nashville as a young kid, I've dreamed of making country music,” Currington says in a press release. “Recording six albums and having ten No. 1s is an amazing feeling. I'm so appreciative of the support from the fans to everyone it has taken to accomplish this. I wake up every day grateful I still get to chase this dream and can't wait to hit the road this summer to play some new music!"
Currington's nine other No. 1 songs are “Must Be Doin’ Something Right,” “Good Directions,” “Don’t,” “People Are Crazy,” “That’s How Country Boys Roll,” “Pretty Good at Drinkin’ Beer,” “Let Me Down Easy,” “Hey Girl” and “We Are Tonight.”
His next single will be “Drinkin’ Town With a Football Problem," which hits radio waves June 1 and is described as capturing "the energy and dynamic of football season in a small town."
Produced by Dann Huff, Summer Forever features 12 tracks penned by some of Nashville's top songwriters, including Hillary Lindsey, Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne, Cole Swindell and Florida Georgia Line.
Currington will embark on Tim McGraw's Shotgun Rider tour this summer, kicking things off June 5 in Little Rock, Arkansas. Then, both he and McGraw will hit the Taste of Country Music Festival and Country Jam on back-to-back weekends.
