with special guest Drake White and the Big Fire
Country singer-songwriter Billy Currington’s sixth album bears the breezy title Summer Forever, but the talented Georgia native has spent more than a decade in the spotlight, proving he’s truly a man for all seasons. Possessing a smooth and distinctive voice, Currington is equally skilled at delivering upbeat summertime anthems and exploring the complexities of life and love with a poignant ballad.
Since his self-titled debut album was released on Mercury Records in 2003, Currington has scored 11 career No. 1 singles, most recently, “Don’t Hurt Like It Used To.” His other hits that reached the No. 1 spot include “Good Directions,” “Let Me Down Easy,” “Must Be Doin’ Somethin’ Right,” “People Are Crazy,” “That’s How Country Boys Roll,” “Hey Girl,” and “We Are Tonight.”
Over the years, Currington has amassed an impressive list of accolades. He won the “Hottest Video of the Year” honor at the fan-voted CMT Music Awards for “Must Be Doin’ Somethin’ Right” in 2006. The same year, he received an ACM nod for Top New Male Vocalist. His hit duet with Shania Twain, “Party for Two,” earned nominations from both the CMA and ACM. “People Are Crazy” took Currington’s already hot career to another level. He earned Grammy® nominations for Male Country Vocal Performance and Best Country Song, in addition to being nominated for Single and Song of the Year from the Country Music Association.
Drake White’s debut album, SPARK, immediately shot to #1 on the iTunes Top Country Albums chart upon release and was named the 2016 Taste of Country Fan Choice Awards Album of the Year. With a rock-infused, organic country sound and signature foot-stomp, the Alabama native was featured in Entertainment Weekly’s New Artists Who Will Rule 2017, Rolling Stone’s 10 Country Artists You Need To Know, and Billboard’s Hot New Country Artists to Watch. White, along with his band The Big Fire, has toured with Willie Nelson, Dierks Bentley, Little Big Town, Zac Brown Band, Eric Church, and Toby Keith.
