>Billy Currington

We Are Tonight

On “Hey Girl,” the hit first single and opening track of his fifth album, Currington has to work up the nerve to make his move. And then on “Wingman,” he loses the girl to his backstabbing buddy. Really, though, who could resist this curly-haired cowboy? []

Chris Young

A.M.

Like Currington, Young displays an easy charm and good-time-guyness on his fourth effort. But in addition to party songs such as “Aw Naw,” there are ballads like “Forgiveness” and “Text Me Texas” that show this country boy’s got real feelings too. []

MGMT

Earth, Wind & Fire

Now, Then & Forever
