Billy Currington has scored an 11th career number one single with It Don’t Hurt Like It Used To, taken from his sixth studio album Summer Forever.

The single joins previous chart-toppers Don’t, Good Directions, Let Me Down Easy, Don’t It, Must Be Doin’ Something Right, People Are Crazy, Pretty Good At Drinkin’ Beer, That’s How Country Boys Roll, Hey Girl, and We Are Tonight.

“I am so excited and proud that It Don’t Hurt Like It Used To is my 11th No. 1 hit – Lucky Number 11!, “ states Billy. “It’s a song that I wrote and to be honest, was not sure if it should be a single or not. You never want to put out a single just because you wrote it. I always want to just put out the best song whether I wrote it or not. This time though, my team kept talking about it and we could all feel the reaction live. I want to thank my fans, my team, radio and my co-writers Shy Carter and Cary Barlowe, as I couldn’t have done it without all of you,” elaborates Billy.

Billy is currently wrapping up his headlining 2016 Summer Forever tour.

Since the release of his self-titled debut album in 2003, Billy has picked up plenty of awards and enjoyed lots of success. He won the Hottest Video of the Year honour at the fan-voted CMT Music Awards for Must Be Doin’ Somethin’ Right. The same year he received an ACM nod for Top New Male Vocalist.

His duet with Shania Twain, Party for Two, earned nominations from both the CMA and ACM.
