Billy Currington has always kind of done things his own way.

He lives in Georgia as opposed to Nashville and spends most of his time off surfing either on the east coast or over in Hawaii, but he’s not worried about fitting in or being forgotten. “You know, Nashville definitely has a game and in the beginning I was told a lot, ‘you might want to play it to get ahead,’” he laughs. But he never worries about being forgotten. “I never feel those kind of thoughts,” says Billy. “I just live what is. Here’s where I want to be and here’s who I want to write with and I’m still connected to all these writers and I feel like they’ll always send me songs and they’ll always write with me if I wanted to. So I never feel the feeling of disconnect and the feeling of I have to do something like everybody else is doing.”

Billy is also not worried about following what’s trendy or hot in country music, choosing instead to make music that fits his style and works for him. “Like there seems to be a lot of beer and truck songs lately,” he points out, “and I just don’t feel compelled to be on that train. I just keep doing what I’m doing and it’ll work when it works and don’t when it don’t.”

Billy’s new album, We Are Tonight, featuring his current top ten hit, “Hey Girl,” will be released on September 17th.
