“I loved this song the first time I heard it, and for it to go #1 and now be nominated for the ACA's is such a cool thing,” said Billy. “I really love that the fans are voting on these awards, that makes it really special. I'm so grateful to my friends Marty Dodson, Jennifer Hanson, and Mark Nesler who wrote “Let Me Down Easy” and to the fans that sing along to it every night.”
“Let Me Down Easy,” from Billy’s fourth studio album Enjoy Yourself, marked his fifth consecutive #1 single, and his seventh overall.
