Album Review

Billy Currington was helped enormously by his duet with Shania Twain on "Party for Two," a new track on her 2004 Greatest Hits album. She had two versions of the song on the record — one cut with Sugar Ray's Mark McGrath for the pop audience, the version with Currington for country fans, and it's not entirely a stretch to say that Currington is a country McGrath: good-looking, likeable, entirely comfortable with selling out so he can reach as big of an audience possible, yet kind of ingratiating because he's not only charming, he's good at it. And his second album, Doin' Something Right proves this: while it doesn't take any chances, it's a thoroughly entertaining and satisfying contemporary country album. Despite his protestations that he wants to be a hillbilly on the rocking, twangy opening cut, Currington has as strong a foundation in pop as he does in country. He not only gets a nicely mellow, relaxed Californian vibe on the title track, but he collaborates with Michael McDonald on "She's Got a Way with Me," a song that could have fit comfortably onto soft rock stations in the early '80s, when McDonald provided his signature gruff, soulful harmonies on every other track. Currington also covers Kenny Rogers' hit "Lucille," but he does a neat trick with it, one that illustrates why this album is so enjoyable: he does a harder country version than Rogers, proving that he can pull off both lighter pop and straight-ahead country with one performance. The rest of the record goes back and forth between these two extremes — sometimes subtlety, sometimes not — and Currington comes across like a blend of Kenny Chesney, Shania Twain, and Alan Jackson: he has the good looks and frat-boy sensibility of Chesney and the pop sense and common touch of Shania, but it's tempered by a touch of the neo-traditional twang of Jackson. The end is a cheerfully commercial country album, but one with muscle and heart, one that's as enjoyable when it's laid-back as when it rocks out. It's an excellent second album and one that should make Currington a star.

Customer Reviews

Awesome

This guy is great and especially love his low sultry voice. The video for "Must Be Doin' Somethin' Right" is sexy as hell. I had never heard of him until Shania Twain came out with their song, "Party for Two". Since then I have purchased every album by Currington and each album is getting better and better. He's definitely doing something right!

No "sophomore slump" here

Following up his under-rated self-titled album, Currington returns with another batch of well-written songs tailor-made for his rich voice. The songs aren't the over-produced, glossy numbers Nashville's been cranking out lately, and it's a welcome change. While the lead single “Must Be Doin’ Somethin’ Right” is a lovely ballad, several tracks are up-tempo tunes you’ll catch yourself singing after the CD is over. Check out “I Wanna Be a Hillbilly”, “Good Directions”, and his true-to-the-original cover of Kenny Rogers’ “Lucille”, but be sure to download “That Changes Everything”.

Currington is "Doin Somethin Right"

Billy Currington's newest CD entitiled "Must Be Doin Somethin Right" is superb from the first trac to the last! The songs range from soulful and sexy to lighthearted and comical. Buy two while you're hear - you'll want to share this one with friends! Highly Recommend!
