Billy Currington’s “Don’t It” is #1

billy currington

Benefiting from release week excitement and hourly iHeartMedia airplay on their respective opening days, Luke Bryan’s “Kick the Dust Up” and Hunter Hayes’ “21” both debut on this week’s Billboard Country Airplay chart.

Officially launched last Tuesday, Bryan’s “Kick the Dust Up” opens at #19 on the audience-driven Billboard chart. The song is the lead single from the country superstar’s forthcoming “Kill the Lights.”

“21,” which arrived on Thursday, May 21, reaches #32 on Billboard’s weekly airplay chart. Not tied to an album, “21” is part of a new campaign that involves launching singles and EPs exclusively through digital channels.

In conjunction with their Billboard Country Airplay bows, “Kick the Dust Up” and “21” open at #28 and #43, respectively, on the Mediabase country radio singles chart.

Billy Currington’s “Don’t It” is this week’s #1 song on both Mediabase and Billboard.

“Making this album was such a blast for me. I put a lot of love into this project and couldn’t be more excited for fans to hear the new music,” shares Currington. “Summer Forever for me represents a positive, happy, good time lifestyle and that’s what I hope the fans feel when they hear this record.”

Over the course of his career, Currington has celebrated nine No. 1 hits, platinum-selling albums and ACM, CMA and GRAMMY nominations. Currington’s series of chart-toppers include “Don’t,” “Good Directions,” “Let Me Down Easy,” “Must Be Doin’ Something Right,” “People Are Crazy,” “Pretty Good At Drinkin’ Beer,” “That’s How Country Boys Roll,” “Hey Girl,” and “We Are Tonight.”

Billy Currington teams up with Tim McGraw this summer on the Shotgun Rider Tour ’15. The cross-country tour kicks off June 5th in Little Rock, Arkansas and runs through September 19th with stops in Dallas, Boston, Chicago and Sacramento.

“I’ve been wanting to tour with Tim for so long,” Billy tells Nashville.com. “I met him quite a while ago, five, six, seven years ago. Actually met him and got to hang out with him, and I think we went hunting together on his property and just had a great day. And since then, deriving from all the good talks we had and the inspiration he gave me and the advice and on and on, I always say, ‘Man I’ve got to tour with this guy someday.’ And so now it’s happening and here we are. I really look forward to it.”
