Billy Currington & Jo-Jo hang at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas prior to a Gary Alan show.
Many of you may remember, a couple of years ago when Billy Currington & Jamey Johnson performed a free show at the RGVLS in Mercedes. It was crazy! I remember getting reports of the traffic backup on the expressway, the thousands & thousands of people that were there to see, what I thought at the time, was an "unproven artist"...Billy had some songs on the radio, but never really got over the top...or at least that was what I thought...to our surprise, the Rio Grande Valley LOVED BILLY CURRINGTON!
Since then, Billy has had tremendous success in South Texas. Pretty Good At Drinkin' Beer and People Are Crazy are still among Valley favorites. This Friday night, Billy will return to the RGVLS. We are totally psyched! Can't wait!
If you plan on attending, get there early. You'll be able to drop by the KTEX Radio Ranch & register for meet & greet passes. We are directly across from the special events center.
Billy has a new song, called "HEY GIRL" that I am sure he'll be performing on Friday. I wanted you to be the first to get your hands on the lyrics...also, here is a clip of the song - sing along.. Njoy - c u on Friday night!
Hey girl, what’s your name girl
I’ve been lookin’ at you
Every guy here’s doin’ the same girl
It’d be a shame girl
If I let you just walk on by
‘Cause I’m all caught up in your sweet smile
A girl like you comes around once in a while
So hot, gotta give it a shot
Gotta get get a little bit of what you got
I know you don’t know me but I can’t leave here lonely
Knowin’ I didn’t even try to make you mine and
You might think I’m crazy
Girl but who could blame me
You’re lookin’ so fine got me all tongue tied
And the only line I can think to say is
Hey girl, whatcha think girl
You look a little thirsty lemme go getcha something to drink girl
Before you blink girl
I’ll be right back by your side
Or if you want we can roll out
I know my way ‘round this town
I got a shotgun seat for you
You can tell me where it is you wanna take off to
Well baby you’re still standin’ here
So I guess you must like what you hear
Hey girl, whatcha say girl
‘Bout you and me gettin’away girl
