Billy Currington follows up his previous No. 1 hits – “Don’t It,” “It Don’t Hurt Like It Used To” and “Do I Make You Wanna” – with the up-tempo “Wake Me Up.” All of the songs are from his 2015 album, Summer Forever.
Billy says the song, Written by Josh Osborne, Jimmy Robbins and Ashley Gorley, is about what happens after a break up. “‘Wake Me Up’ is a song about someone who’s definitely just lost his love, and he’s heartbroken – or she’s heartbroken – and he’s basically saying to the partner that he just lost, ‘It don’t matter, it don’t matter when you call me, you can wake me up. Just call me, ‘cause I miss ya. I love ya.’”
The Georgia native is crisscrossing the country on his Stay Up ‘Til the Sun Tour, in addition to working on his next album. Check out his tour dates at his official website, billycurrington.com.
