self-titled release or not. Currington's debut album was a soaring attempt, though undercut, in my opinion. After listening to both his old album and "Doin' Somethin' Right" a couple times, I honestly prefer his new album. Although Currington has a couple songs on "Doin' Somethin' Right" that shouldn't have made the cut, his album is pretty good.
"Doin' Somethin' Right" starts off rather shaky with "I Wanna Be A Hillbilly." I can't see Currington as being a hillbilly. Maybe he is and his style deceives a hillbilly in disguise, but I still just can't connect the song to him. "Good Directions" is a fun-loving song with the most potential for success. I think it'd be a great single for radio and I'm sure his fans would love it. "Must Be Doin' Somethin' Right" is the one single from Currington that when I heard it, I knew it would do well. I could tell that there was something special about this single and it was the first time I realized that Currington has a lot to offer.
Currington singing ballads seems to work with his vocal range the best. He can sing up-tempos well, but the ballads stand out and overpower his other songs. Out of the up-tempos on this album, "Why, Why, Why" would rank at the top and should be a future single for Currington, as well.
Billy Currington is one of the very few artists with a unique tone and rough vocal style. Yeah, other new artists are great, but the majority sound like everyone else - That's not the case with Billy Currington. It looks like he is doin' many things right, these days. - Janelle Landauer
Doin' Somethin' Right
Billy Currington released his sophomore album on October 18th 2005. With sophomore albums, you have so much to prove. You have to start off with a good core base for songs and then you also really have to show everyone that you're different from the rest trying to make it in Nashville.
When I initially listened to "Doin' Somethin' Right," I wasn't sure if it surpassed his
