Billy Currington has been churning out hits for over a decade now. His level of success kind of sneaks up on you because he doesn’t strike many people as a superstar in the country world. He’s certainly a star and has a huge catalog of hits, but he’s at that level just below superstar. And that’s totally fine.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been six years since the song Pretty Good At Drinkin’ Beer was released. It was back in the spring and summer of 2010 when this one really started climbing the charts.
It’s a fun song, kind of in the vein of Billy’s own Good Directions. It’s kind of a simple song about simple country life. Things don’t need to get too complicated to enjoy all the good things about life.
The idea is that this guy in the song doesn’t really have the ambition for doing a lot in life. He’s not very good at the usual things, but he has found himself to be pretty good at drinking beer and having a good time.
What’s wrong with that?
To each their own. Live and let live. If it’s not hurting anybody then there is no reason to worry.
This song was and is incredibly catchy. It’s easy to see why so many people loved it back then and still request it today. Sometimes it’s good to just sit back and appreciate the simple things in life that you’re good at – like drinking a beer.
A great song from Billy and he’s still putting out great songs today.
