It’s easy to get lost in the “Details” of country hitmaker Billy Currington's new summertime love song.
The love-struck lyrics sung by Currington were co-written by Sterling, Kan. native Nicolle Galyon.
Following the song’s August debut on the radio, Galyon will kick off the Kansas State Fair’s 2019 Nex-Tech Wireless Grandstand concert series Friday, Sept. 6, opening for Bobby Bones and the Raging Idiots. She will perform many of her Top 40 hits, including No. 1 singles “Tequila” (Dan + Shay), Automatic (Miranda Lambert), "All The Pretty Girls” (Kenny Chesney) and “Coming Home” (Keith Urban).
Her family attended the Kansas State Fair every year when she was growing up. Her passion for songwriting will come full circle when she takes to the Nex-Tech Wireless Grandstand stage for the first time next month.
“I think to this day I love my job because I’m still the ultimate fan of country music,” Galyon told a reporter before last year’s fair. “I still can’t wait until midnight on Thursday nights for new records to come out, and I still get butterflies when the lights go down before a concert.”
Galyon penned “Details” with Mark Trussell and Stephen Lee Olsen.
Meanwhile, her career continues to grow. In July, she partnered with Nashville-based independent record label Big Loud to launch Songs & Daughters, an imprint devoted solely to signing female acts. Galyon will serve as president and run the label. Her first signee is up-and-comer Madison Kozak. Kozak also is performing as part of the State Fair's free concert series, opening for Lindsay Ell on Thursday, Sept. 12 at the Bretz and Young Injury Lawyers Arena.
Currington, who has 11 No. 1 hits under his belt, performs at the grandstand Saturday, Sept. 7.
