Hey girl: Country star Billy Currington plays the Boulevard Pool in Las Vegas

The country star brings his bevy of hits, including "Hey Girl" and "We Are Tonight"

Georgia native Billy Currington has a bio that reads like the country music he sings. He worked in construction. He lived in a tiny attic apartment. He moved to Nashville after high school to make his dreams come true.

Twelve years since his first big hit, Currington plays the Boulevard Pool at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on Friday, May 29.

His self-titled debut album in 2003 brought that first single, “Walk a Little Straighter,” a song about his relationship with his alcoholic step-father.  He wrote the chorus for that song, which peaked at No. 8 on the country charts, at age 12.

Then he struck country gold again with his sophomore album “Doin’ Something Right” with his first two No. 1 singles, “Must Be Doin’ Somethin’ Right” and “Good Directions.”

Three years later, he released his third album “Little Bit of Everything” with hits “People Are Crazy” and “That’s How Country Boys Roll.”

In September 2013, Currington delivered “We Are Tonight” featuring the smash hit “Hey Girl,” as well as the title track for the album.

Tickets start at $35 and go on sale on Friday, April 3.

Tickets: Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, (800) 745-3000
