Do I Make You Wanna

Album: Summer Forever (2015)
Charted: 47
  • This Ashley Gorley, Zach Crowell, Matt Jenkins and Jerry Flowers penned love song was one of Billy Currington's favorite demos that he got to listen to while riding around in his truck. The singer knew after a few listens that he wanted it for the love side of his Summer Forever album.

    "It just felt good. The lyrical content is written so perfect," said Currington. "It's a question - 'Do I make you wanna dance real slow. Do I make you wanna go fly down a two-lane road. Am I that guy. Am I the one that's making you happy 'cause I wanna know. Do I make you wanna.' It just spoke to me. I became a big fan. I listened to it over and over, so I had to record it."
  • When Billy Currington first heard the song, it reminded him of a pivotal single in his career, his first chart-topper.

    "It feels like it's been a little bit since I had a song like 'Must Be Doing Something Right,'" he said. "When we put that out and it became the first #1, I knew in my mind, like, that's my connection. You know, that's something that feels right for me."

    "When this song came along, 'Do I Make You Wanna,' it was one of the first things I thought," Currington continued. "It has a soulful feel, and is kinda saying similar things. And it just felt right to record it."
