Doin' Somethin' Right

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
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 ...

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.

    Dreamy Billy

    Loved the pics of him on the inside cover. Too bad he wasn't completely shirtless in the one! Good music to listen to.

    Definitely Doin' Somethin' Right!

    Definitely Doin' Somethin' Right, November 2, 2005 Reviewer: Billyshillbilly - See all my reviews After two years of releasing his first cd titled Billy Currington, Doin' Somethin' Right was released October 18 and I was so glad. I worn out his first cd and had to buy a second. "Doin' Somethin' Right" has a song for everyone to enjoy. You cannot sit still on songs "I Wanna Be a Hillbilly", "Whole Lot More" and "She Knows What To Do With A Saturday Night". Then there's the slow ballads of "Doin' Somethin' Right" and "Here I Am". There's a duet with Michael McDonald "She's Got a Way With Me" and he even remakes Kenny Rogers song "Lucille" which is incredible. There is something for everyone on this cd. Good thing I bought two. Only had the cd for two weeks and haven't stopped playing it yet. I just love Billy's voice. This cd is a must have. Believe me you won't be disappointed. Track Listings 1. I Wanna Be A Hillbilly 2. Good Directions 3. Must Be Doin' Somethin' Right 4. Why, Why, Why 5. That Changes Everything 6. Little Bit Lonely 7. She's Got A Way With Me 8. Lucille 9. Whole Lot More 10. Here I Am 11. She Knows What To Do With A Saturday Night

    He is Doin Everything Right

    This is a must for any music lover. Billy has it all on this CD. He has the slow romance in "Doin' somethin' right" and the get up and dance in "I wanna be a hillbilly". You will play it over and over and be ready for more from Billy Currington.

    Billy is Definately Doin Something Right!

    This album is simply the best! Each song offers a different view into the voice of Billy Currington. My personal favorite is "She's Got A Way with Me" Which he co wrote with Michael McDonald, who plays piano and sings background on this song. Excellent! I think I can relate to "She Knows What to Do with A Saturday Night" I don't like the Knob on the Washing Machine either!! Great Great Great!!!

    Party CD

    Billy Currington's second CD Doin Somethin Right is a thousand times better than his first CD and it was my most played CD already. This CD is the ultimate party CD it has every kind of party song. From "She Knows What To Do On a Saturday Night" to "I Wanna Be a Hillbilly". This is my all time favorite CD! I LOVE IT!!!

    Country's Back!!!

    Billy is definitely 'doin something right' with this sophomore album! The album features several great songs that Billy himself wrote/co-wrote making the album very personal. He does an awesome job with Michael Mcdonald and the cover of Kenny Rogers 'Lucille'! If you have heard the chart climbing hit "must be doin something right" then you have heard talent but if not....Listen now!

    This CD is Awesome! Billy is Awesome!

    I got this CD the day it came out and it has not come out of my CD player!! I love it all! The whole CD is great. I didn't think this cd could have been better than his 1st but it is. This is a must have. My 5 year old son even knows the words to 1/2 the songs now and even requests certain ones.

    Billy's My Man

    I love this new cd from Billy. It's just as HOT as the first one. I buy a cd and most of the time it only has one good song on it, but Billy's music is all good. Everyone of Billy's songs could be hits! You will love this cd as much as you did the first one!

    Billy Currington is definitely "Doin Somethin Right"

    Billy Currington's newest CD entitled "Doin Somethin Right" is supurb from the first trac to the last! The songs range from soulful and sexy to lighthearted and comical. Better buy 2 while you're here - you'll want to share this one with friends!

    Billy knows his way to a woman's heart

    I wasn't a big fan of Billy until this album!!! It blows me away and the 2nd and 3rd songs are definetly played every time I'm in my car. His soulful country voice makes me fall head over heels and just is a refreshing tone.
