Billy Currington looks to third CD

Wednesday, August 27, 2008 – Billy Currington's third album "Little Bit Of Everything" will be out Oct. 14 on Mercury Nashville. Carson Chamberlain and Currington co-produced the 12 tracks, 5 of which Currington had a hand in writing.

Between tour dates, studio visits to finalize the album, and filming a video in downtown Nashville for his new single Don't, Currington said, "People kept asking what kind of music they'd hear on this next album, whether it was going to be R&B, pop, country or rock, and I seemed to keep saying the same thing. It's going to be a little bit of everything, I guess."

Currington debuted in 2003 with the powerful Top 10 hit Walk A Little Straighter followed by the Top 5 hit I Got A Feelin'. He went on to duet with Shania Twain on Party for Two. Sophomore album "Doin' Somethin' Right" debuted at number two on the country charts, Good Directions and Must Be Doin' Somethin' Right" snagged him his first and second number one singles. Currington had to take off in 2007 due to a throat ailment.

CD reviews for Billy Currington

CD review - Summer Forever Billy Currington is a prototypical bro country specimen with his boyish good looks, infectious charm and smooth voice. That said, he has avoided being thrust into the negative stereotypes of that group largely because his songs avoid the harder edges of the sub-genre.

His sixth studio album is a breezy 12-song collection ...
CD review - We Are Tonight Billy Currington's We Are Tonight sometimes plays out like a college frat boy soundtrack album. The song Wingman, for instance, describes how two guys pair up to score chicks, while Hey Girl is all about an objectified hot girl that doesn't even have a name - names, integrity, character and such, are simply unimportant when it's a game featuring the hunter and the hunted. (This particular hunter doesn't even need a wingman). The album's best song is called Banana Pancakes. ...
CD review - Enjoy Yourself Billy Currington treats this album's title like a manifesto. The title track, with its part-Mexican, part-tropical groove, prescribes drinking, dancing, swimming and generally having a good time. All Day Long, on the other hand, takes a page out of the Zac Brown Band book for a slightly jam band-like lovers rock tune. While Kenny Chesney can come off a little smug when singing similar sentiments, Currington is far more likeable. His easygoing style is best showcased on Bad Day of Fishin'. ...
