Chanteur Country US originaire de Rincon (Georgie).
singer/songwriter Billy Currington was raised in Rincon, GA. Following high
school, he made a couple attempts at relocating to Nashville in the hopes of
getting a career in music off the ground, finally landing a job there at a
concrete company, while still finding time to play at clubs on the side and work
on song demos. When singer Mark Wills
put a hold on one of his songs, Currington met and began writing with
Wills' producer, Carson Chamberlain,
which eventually led to a recording contract with Mercury Records. His first
single, "Walk a Little Straighter," was released in 2003, and drew heavily on
Currington's experiences with an alcoholic father (the chorus for the song was
actually written when Currington was only 12 years old). A debut album, Billy
Currington, was released on Mercury Records in 2003. A second album, Doin'
Somethin' Right, followed in 2005 on Mercury Nashville. Three years later,
Currington delivered the eclectic, R&B-inflected Little Bit of Everything
also on Mercury Nashville. In 2010, Currington returned with his tenth-studio
effort, Enjoy Yourself, featuring the Troy Jones co-written single, "Pretty Good
at Drinkin' Beer." That song went to number one as did "Let Me Down Easy."
"Love Done Gone" and "Like My Dog" also reached the country Top 40.
Currington returned to action in 2013, releasing the single "Hey Girl" in March and then delivering the full-length We Are Tonight that September.
