Billy Currington Says ‘Enjoy Yourself’ at the ‘Taste Of Country Music Festival’ at Hunter Mountain
If you were to ask Billy Currington to sum up his music, it would probably be with the title of his 2010 album ‘Enjoy Yourself.’ That’s what he hopes his many fans will do when he plays the ‘Taste Of Country Music Festival,’ at Hunter Mountain Resort, June 13-15th.
Billy was first introduced to the country music charts in 2003 with his first single “Walk a Little Straighter” about his relationship with his alcoholic stepfather, including a chorus that Currington wrote when he was twelve years old.
Billy has had a giant string of impressive ten Top 10 hits, with six of those hitting number one – “Pretty Good At Drinkin’ Beer,” “That’s How Country Boys Roll,” “People Are Crazy,” ”Don’t,” “Must Be Doin’ Somethin’ Right” and “Good Directions.”
This Georgia native has had his share of honors. Nominations include two 2010 Grammy nominations (Male Country Vocal Performance and Best Country Song) for “People Are Crazy,” which also received nominations for Single and Song of the Year from the Academy of Country Music, as well as Single, Song and Video of the Year from the Country Music Association. He was honored with a 2006 nomination for Top New Male Vocalist at the ACMS, which followed 2005 ACM and CMA nominations for “Party For Two,” his duet with Shania Twain.
With all those hits and success, how could you not “Enjoy Yourself.” For ticket information on the 3-day ‘Taste Of Country Music Festival‘ June 13-15 at Hunter Mountain, visit www.tasteofcountryfestival.com
