Currington assumes number one post

Monday, March 8, 2010 – Billy Currington garners his fifth number one single with That's How Country Boys Roll this week, according to his record label. Currington will take over the top spot from Josh Turner's Why Don't We Just Dance.

The new number one song, written by Currington, Brett Jones and Dallas Davidson, is from his third album "Little Bit Of Everything." This also marks Currington's third consecutive number one single and the first time he's been a writer on a chart-topping song.

"This song would've never been written if Brett, Dallas and I had kept our promise to not work on a guy's trip to Key West," joked Currington. "But we got the groove with the title, and it just started flowing. Thank you to radio, Universal, the songwriters and the fans! I'm very blessed to have another number one single."

The chart will be released online Thursday.

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 lyrics generally avoid excessive partying and objectifying women. His catalog of catchy numbers and sweet ballads lends an Adult Contemporary feel to the material. 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'. ...
