It’s pretty impressive the number of hit singles that Billy Currington has had during his career. His first single came out in 2003 and many country artists don’t really make it to a decade before falling off the charts. But Billy is as strong as ever in the early part of his second decade on the charts.
His last single made it to #30 on the chart, but that happens sometimes. This next one sounds really good.
It Don’t Hurt Like It Used To – Billy Currington
The song seems to be about a guy that is getting over a relationship. It seems like it has been some time since they were together. He still thinks of how things were and it still hurts, but not quite as bad as it used to.
Sometimes it takes wine and sometimes it takes tears. But mostly the guy is now able to get back to a normal life. He’s looking forward to things in the future and things are going pretty good.
But he occasionally still has those thoughts of the past and it does make him sad. But not as sad or as often as it did just a short time ago.
Who hasn’t felt this way before? Breakups are some of the most difficult things that many go through in life.
What really stands out, as is the case with many Billy Currington songs, is the melody. It’s really catchy. No, it’s not your usual uptempo country song that will get you dancing, but this one is easily something you can sing along with.
I think it’s a really good song.
