October 11, 2011 – Platinum-selling country star Billy Currington releases his latest single “Like My Dog” to radio today. The single, from his fourth studio album Enjoy Yourself, is a fun tongue-in-cheek song about wanting your significant other to love unconditionally the way your dog does. Billy recently wrapped up his supporting slot on Kenny Chesney’s ‘Goin’ Coastal’ Tour and has several headlining shows through the end of the month.
“A lot of people relate to this song,” said Billy. “It’s always fun performing it live!”
Billy’s first two singles from Enjoy Yourself, “Pretty Good At Drinkin’ Beer” and “Let Me Down Easy,” marked his fourth and fifth consecutive #1 singles, with seven #1’s overall. His last single “Love Done Gone” marked his 11th Top 20 hit. Since his debut in 2003 he has sold over 11 million units, earned multiple RIAA Gold and Platinum certifications, had ten Top 10 singles, been nominated for two Grammy Awards and multiple CMA and ACM Awards.
