New 'Best Of' Albums Star Country's Josh Turner and Billy Currington

LOS ANGELES, March 22, 2011 -- Josh Turner and Billy Currington have more in common than just being two of country music's brightest young stars.  The debut album for each was issued in 2003, each has had a total of four studio albums, each has had at least four No. 1 country hits, and each has earned at least one platinum and one gold album.  Now each has a hits collection on Mercury Nashville/UMe: The Best Of Josh Turner and Best Of Billy Currington, the newest additions to the UMe Icon series, released March 22, 2011.

Georgia native Currington knows how country boys roll.  In fact, "That's How Country Boys Roll" was the fourth of his five No. 1s to date.  Two of them have gone gold ("Good Directions" and "Must Be Doin' Something Right") and one has gone platinum ("People Are Crazy").  Of his four albums, the last three have each reached No. 2 country.  Best Of Billy Currington features seven of his first nine country Top 10s, from his debut, "Walk A Little Straighter," through 2009's "That's How Country Boys Roll."

South Carolina's Josh Turner made a spectacular breakthrough with 2003's "Long Black Train." The digital gold single became one of country radio's longest charting songs (according to R&R), staying on the country chart for 40-plus weeks in addition to platinum-plus sales of the album by the same name. Since then, Turner has received double platinum and gold certification for Your Man and Everything is Fine, respectively. When he was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 2007, he was then the youngest inductee (now that's Carrie Underwood).  The Best Of Josh Turner brings together all of his No. 1 singles to date including the digital gold and multi-week chart toppers "Your Man," "Would You Go With Me" and "Why Don't We Just Dance" plus "All Over Me," "Long Black Train" and more.
