Don’t ever accuse Billy Currington of not paying attention. On his new single “Details” (released today, July 19), the country hit-maker is celebrating the woman in his life by observing her smallest quirks, often to the point of oblivion to the outside world. The song is a tongue-in-cheek summer anthem that should easily become one of Currington’s biggest hits.
Written by Mark Trussell, Nicolle Galyon and Stephen Lee Olsen, “Details” is an up-tempo tune that will undoubtedly be in your head after just a few listens. With it’s laid back melody and earwormy lyrics, it’s the perfect song for Currington’s vibe. While other artists sometimes choose to chase trends, Currington stays true to himself here, releasing yet another solid single.
Wondering what some of the “Details” are that Currington notices? Look no further than the song’s chorus:
“I’m completely focused on every / 5’7”, 3/8 inches of you baby / How the salt in the air makes your hair kinda wavy / How you’re tongue-tied when you mix wine / With the Gemini, baby I memorized / Every brown sugar freckle that the Lord put on ya / How you lean to left, 45 degrees, right before / You’re gonna kiss me/ If you can’t tell / I’ve been paying close attention to your details”
He also admits that “hundred dollar bills could be falling from the sky,” and he wouldn’t even notice, while he doesn’t know what song just played or the name of his next door neighbor. While Currington may be a terrible neighbor, he’s apparently a good boyfriend who notices the important things about the woman in his life, including her coffee order, DVR history, and pillow preferences.
While the single won’t hit country radio until August 5, it was released digitally today, and we couldn’t be happier. Currington is one of the genre’s most consistent artists, releasing hit after hit, while somehow managing to remain under the radar. He also looks phenomenal in a NYCountry Swag snapback.
Currington is currently headlining his Stay Up ‘Til The Sun Tour, with upcoming stops in Hampton Beach, New Hampshire, Troy, New York, and Springfield, Massachusetts.
