Billy Currington has just released the video for his upbeat new single, “Hey Girl,” and says that he didn’t want any downers on his new album.
"I don't have anything sad to write about," he says. "And with the songs I hear, I seem to tend to draw towards the happier songs that other people write."
He went so far as to drop the melancholy track "Like It Never Happened" from the album, even though he loves it. "I didn't really want people to be laying out at a pool or something like that on the beach or whatever and hear the album and finally get to that one downer," he explains.
We Are Tonight features a collaboration with Willie Nelson on the track "It's Hard to Be a Hippie."
