"If you only know Billy Currington from "Party For Two," his hit duet with Shania Twain, you need to expand your horizons and check out his 2003 self-titled debut and this latest gem, which reveal what Currington is really capable of vocally and stylistically.
DOIN' SOMETHIN' RIGHT opens and closes with foot stompers ("I Wanna Be A Hillbilly," "She Knows What To Do With A Saturday Night") which will have you dancing in the streets (or at least at your local honkytonk). It between, we get a somewhat gentler Billy, with the title track/lead off single providing a relaxed yet heartfelt delivery, and a lusty "Little Bit Lonely" plus "Here I Am" showcasing incredible charisma.
"Good Directions" is the type of down home, good ol' boy number that Kenny Chesney succeeds with (again and again and again). Billy's remake of "Lucille" is a nice update, hitting a little harder than Kenny Rogers' original, while a collaboration with Michael McDonald on "She's Got A Way With Me" offers a power ballad change of pace.
Hopefully, this diverse collection will elevate Billy to the next level on the country music food chain. It's a fine effort that clearly avoids the sophomore jinx.

"I like one or two of Billy Currington's first songs; however, I think his duet w/ Shania Twain actually hurt him. This CD compiles a great mix of songs - good country twang with a little motown, fast and slower paced songs.
I have gotten more discriminating in CD purchasing since I can simply download songs I really like as opposed to shelling out $12-15 for a mediocre CD, but I got hooked on Doing Something Right and had to have this CD. I have not regretted the purchase. Usually I only end up liking one or two songs on a CD but this CD is great overall.
I can only hope that Billy Currington will release more songs off this CD - Good Directions, She's Got a Way with Me."
