William "Billy" Currington has racked up seven No. 1 hits over ten successful years including 2013's smash single "Hey Girl" and brand-new album We Are Tonight.
Born in 1973 and raised in Rincon, Georgia, Currington moved to Nashville after high school to pursue a career in country music, working for a concrete company to make ends meet and playing clubs and writing songs on the side. He eventually cut tracks for George Strait, Kenny Rogers and Mark Wills, which led to him signing to Mercury Nashville Records in 2003. His self-titled debut album came out later that year, featuring the singles "Walk a Little Straighter" about his relationship with his alcoholic stepfather, and "I Got A Feelin’", which reached the Top 5 on the country charts. His sophomore album Doin’ Something Right was released in 2005, spawning the singles "Why, Why, Why" and the number one hits "Must Be Doin’ Something Right" and "Good Directions", and selling over one million copies in the U.S. In 2008, Currington put out the track "Don’t", which climbed to number two on the charts and preceded the release of his third album Little Bit of Everything, also featuring number one singles "People Are Crazy" and "That’s How Country Boys Roll". His fourth studio album Enjoy Yourself came out in 2010 and its singles "Pretty Good at Drinkin’ Beer" and "Let Me Down Easy" also achieved number one status on the country charts. He was toured with the likes of Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley and Sugarland, playing concerts to ticket holders all over the country.
