Billy Currington is a country singer who grew up in Rincon, Georgia and became famous in 2003 with single "Walk a Little Straighter." Since his first single and his album, Billy Currington tickets have sold well to country audiences throughout the United States and Canada. His most recent exploits include accolades for his single "People are Crazy." The song won the 2010 Single Record of the Year and Song of the Year from the Academy of Country Music.
Currington was born on November 19, 1973 and grew up and has continued to live in the South, first growing up in Georgia and then moving to Nashville after his music career began to take off. That music career became a serious passion after he failed to win a job at Opryland, the country music theme park. Instead of leaving Nashville, he stuck around and worked for years to break into the music industry.
All the work he had done on the side, as a concrete company employee and personal trainer, finally paid off when one of his personal fitness clients insisted he cut a demo tape. The tape earned Billy Currington a spot with Mercury Records Nashville in 2001.
Two years later his self-titled debut album hit the shelves. Both singles from Billy Currington peaked in the top ten on the U.S. Country charts and his album peaked at number 17 on the U.S. Country album chart from Billboard. Though it did not end up certified anything, it was a great start.
Billy Currington went platinum with his next album Doin' Somethin' Right in 2005. Two singles reached number one on the country charts, "Must Be Doin' Somethin' Right" and "Good Direction."
The rising country star experienced multiple set backs in 2007, after the release of his third album Little Bit of Everything. He canceled his summer tour due to laryngitis and the album's release was delayed. The delayed release, lack of live appearances, and therapy he underwent for crippling emotional issues ended in underwhelming record sales. Billy Currington had his album peak at number two on the charts, but the album only reached gold.
His fortune only seemed to become worse in 2009, when a stage collapsed at the Big Valley Jamboree because of a wind storm. He suffered a concussion, his bass player endured injury, and a fan died.
He has returned to the road in 2010. Billy Currington tickets have been sold for his spring and summer headlining dates and he has been added to the Carrie Underwood tour schedule in the fall.
