The Platinum-selling artist Billy Currington has reason to be celebratory this week as he has scored his 10th #1 single today with “Don’t It,” the lead single from Summer Forever, Billy’s sixth album set to hit stores in one week (June 2, 2015).
The song, written by Jaren Johnston (The Cadillac Three), Ashley Gorley and Ross Copperman, is one of 12 tracks on the soulful singer’s new album and it will be followed up on radio by the single “Drinkin’ Town With A Football Problem,” a song written by The Henningsens band along with American Idol album Vanessa Olivarez and Elizabeth Elkins. The single captures the energy and dynamic of football season in a small town.
"Ever since I first visited Nashville as a young kid, I've dreamed of making country music,” shares Currington. “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!"
The album Summer Forever was produced by Dann Huff and features songwriters like Zach Crowell, Shane McAnally, Cary Barlowe, Josh Osborne, Jimmy Robbins, Florida Georgia Line, Hillary Lindsey and Cole Swindell among others.
