Listen to Billy Currington on iHeartRadio

Billy Currington says he really enjoys his latest single.  The singer tells "Country Weekly" the demo for "Hey Girl" instantly took him back to his high school days, walking along the beach with his friends. 

He admits it might sound "goofy," but when he was a teenager the perfect way to start a conversation with someone he wanted to get to know was just to say, "Hey girl!"  Billy adds that he's thrilled the song was accepted as the lead-off single from his next album, because he was eager to include it in his live sets.  He says the tempo is great for his shows, and the energy automatically goes up as soon as the crowd hears that first guitar riff.

"Hey Girl" is from Currington's upcoming album We Are Tonight, which will be in stores on September 17th.
