Billy Currington Gets Ready to ‘Enjoy’ New Music
While Billy Currington has been climbing the charts with the fun-and-suds tune 'Pretty Good at Drinkin' Beer,' he's also been putting the finishing touches on his upcoming album, titled 'Enjoy Yourself.'
Billy only wrote one of the CD's tracks himself, 'Bad Day of Fishin',' yet he had plenty of great songs to choose from for the new disc. "It's been a process for this particular project for like five years when I go back through my songs," Billy tells The Boot. "I've been stashing all these songs that I get pitched every year in this one little spot on my computer -- it's probably been more like 10 years of songs now -- and so I feel like I'm so stashed up with songs that I didn't need to write or look for them. There's so many I keep having to not record that I want to record every time I have an album that comes around. There's not a lot of [my] writing this time for some reason. It just didn't happen. I wasn't in the right place."
A release date has yet to be announced for the new album.
Billy has a handful of dates of his own before he hits the concert trail for the fall leg of Carrie Underwood's Play On tour, kicking off in Portland, Ore., on September 25.
