Billy Currington’s fourth studio album Enjoy Yourself, has been certified Gold by the RIAA, marking his second consecutive album to receive the status.

Currington, who is currently working on his fifth studio album, just finished recording “Just For You” for Lionel Richie’s Tuskegee, which was released Mon., March 26. The pair will debut the song on Jimmy Kimmel Live on April 4 and The Talk on April 5.

“That song was a massive hit in Europe that we’re now bringing to America,” said Richie. “I’m so happy to be able to let him present that song to America.”

Currington kicked off his 16-date cross-country headlining tour last week with labelmates David Nail and Kip Moore. Ram Trucks brand has come on board as presenting sponsors for select dates of the tour.

Currington’s first two singles from his fourth studio album Enjoy Yourself, “Pretty Good At Drinkin’ Beer” and “Let Me Down Easy,” marked his fourth and fifth consecutive No. 1 singles, with seven No. 1s overall. Since his debut in 2003, Billy has sold more than 11 million units, and received nominations for two Grammys.
