Currington fulfills dream

Thursday, January 13, 2011 – Billy Currington will fulfill his dream - he's going to play stadiums this year thanks to Kenny Chesney. Currington will join Chesney on his 2011 'Goin' Coastal' Tour beginning March 17 in West Palm Beach, Fla.

Currington who recently marked his sixth number one single with Pretty Good At Drinkin' Beer, will open more than 50 dates at arena and amphitheatres across the country along with Uncle Kracker. Currington's current single, Let Me Down Easy, from his fourth studio album, "Enjoy Yourself," is in the Top 20 on the Billboard Country Songs Chart.

"I've dreamed of playing these big stadiums for a long time, and to have the privilege to do so with Kenny puts this over the top," said Currington. "It makes it possible for me to re-connect with everybody and to do the thing that I love the most - performing. It'll be great to have the chance to share some of the new songs from 'Enjoy Yourself' with everyone."

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'. ...
