Billy Currington Talks New Album 'Summer Forever'

(Radio.com) Billy Currington isn't afraid to admit it: He's got a thing for warm weather. So when the famously laid-back Georgia singer came across a song called "Summer Forever," it felt like natural fit for his new album.

In fact, it turned out to be the title track. "For me it seems so fit for the way I live my life all throughout the year," explains Currington during a phone conversation with Radio.com. "I'm definitely in search of places that are warm, I'm not the biggest fan of cold weather."

"Once I saw that [song] title, it seemed like the perfect fit for the album," Currington continues. The other songs, "they just wrapped around that title." Summer, he explains, "is happy and fun and all those things, and to me that's what this album [is]."

Currington's sixth album to date, Summer Forever hits stores June 2. Country fans, though, are already plenty familiar with at least one song from the album, "Don't It," which just topped the charts. Written by Jaren Johnston, Ashley Gorley and Ross Copperman, it's Currington's tenth No. 1 single to date.

The first time I heard 'Don't It,' it was sent to me by a friend named Brian Wright. Brian has sent me a lot of songs in the past that I've had success on. Sure enough, on first listen I was sure it would be one of the first songs we would record. It just had that groove and…I'm a big fan of shuffles, which is what this song is. Yeah, man, just that groove." Read more here.
