Country star Billy Currington has had a whirlwind summer. His single “People Are Crazy,” spent two weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard country chart and he’s been rocking the stages all across the nation.

“We started playing that song live way before it was a single and we could tell then that people were loving that type of a song, they seem to like story songs. Since it has been [a single], it’s just been crazy, Currington, tells PEOPLE.

When he’s not on the road performing, the singer, who will appear on the Late Show with David Letterman Tuesday, hits the beach with his chocolate lab, Paco. “I’m a big ocean guy. I like kayaking, canoeing and surfing and hiking,” he says.

Plus, Paco helps Currington, who is single, attracts some of the right kind of attention. He likes girls, he’s crazy when girls come around,” says Currington.

So what does the 35-year-old country star look for in a woman? “Sweetness, the simplest qualities.”
