Billy Currington sings at NASCAR race

Tuesday, March 20, 2007 – Billy Currington will sing the national anthem prior to the sold-out Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway on Sunday, March 25. This will be Currington's first trip to the World's Fastest half mile where he'll sing in front of nearly 160,000 fans.

"I am excited to be part of the tradition at Bristol Motor Speedway and share in the excitement of a live NASCAR event," said Currington. "I have played in front of thousands of people before, but this is a very different experience that I am looking forward to."

Currington, who hails from Rincon, Ga., has enjoyed hits with "Walk a Little Straighter" and "I Got a Feelin'." Currington also partnered with Shania Twain on the hugely successful "Party for Two."

Currington's latest CD, "Doin' Somethin' Right" resulted in a hit with the title track. He also co-wrote much of the album, including "Why, Why, Why," "Whole Lot More," "Here I Am" and "She's Got A Way With Me," a duet with Michael McDonald of Doobie Brothers fame.

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'. ...
