"Good Directions" is a song written by Luke Bryan and Rachel Thibodeau and recorded by American country music artist Billy Currington. It was released in September 2006 as the third and final single from his album Doin' Somethin' Right. It became his second Number One hit, spending three weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.
The song's narrator is a man who is selling turnips at a roadside stand. A beautiful woman pulls up in a car, asking the man for directions to an undisclosed Interstate, which the man then gives and suggests that woman stop by a little country store to try some of Miss Belle's sweet tea. The man then regrets sending the woman away without even asking for her name. However, he later sees the woman return to his stand (per the suggestion of Miss Belle, who is revealed to be the main character's mother). Upon seeing the woman return, he says "Thank God for good directions and turnip greens."
Luke Bryan, who wrote the song, recorded the song as a bonus track to his debut album I'll Stay Me.
"Good Directions" debuted at number 60 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks for the week of October 21, 2006.
