Billy Currington’s Fourth Album Enjoy Yourself Due September 21
Includes The Top 5 Smash Hit “Pretty Good At Drinkin’ Beer”
The fourth record from Mercury Nashville singer/songwriter Billy Currington is set for release SEPTEMBER 21. The album is entitled Enjoy Yourself, and includes the crooner’s Top 5 smash hit “Pretty Good At Drinkin’ Beer” written by Troy Jones. Enjoy Yourself, featuring the Georgia native’s trademark mix of country, R&B and beach music, is produced by Currington and Carson Chamberlain.
“It’s a great mix. It reflects who I am,” Currington says about the collection of 10 songs. “I’m definitely not just one thing. I’m the beach guy, I’m the country guy, I love my dirt roads and fishin’, but I love New York City and L.A. and Miami , too.”
Billboard claims first single “Pretty Good At Drinkin’ Beer” “is the kind of ditty worth spinning on loop. Currington is pretty good at more than just knocking back a few cold ones and this lead single sounds like a sure thing.”
The album features Nashville ’s top songwriters, including Dave Barnes, Shawn Camp, Scotty Emerick, Jones and Mark Nesler.
“This record was about recording songwriter’s songs,” says Billy. “I could have gone back and recorded a bunch of mine that I’ve written, but there were a lot of writers I wanted to record, like Shawn and Troy . I had to put their songs on this album.”
Currington is a multi Grammy, Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music award nominated artist who’s garnered five career #1 singles. This fall he joins Carrie Underwood on a 46-city tour which kicks off September 25 in Portland and includes stops in San Diego, Los Angeles, Houston, Dallas, Nashville, Kansas City, Tampa, Charlotte, Toronto and Vancouver, to name a few.
