Small town southern boy Billy Currington will be performing his list of country hits at Cypress Gardens tomorrow starting at 7:30 p.m. The concert is included with park admission.
Currington’s southern country sound has been described as “blues tinged” and “soulful.” Although Currington started writing songs and playing the guitar as a teenager, his debut CD didn’t hit the shelves until 2003. His second album, “Doin’ Somethin’ Right” achieved the number two spot on the Billboard’s Current Country Albums Chart after being release in 2005. “Walk a Little Straighter,” “I Got a Feelin’,” “Party for Two,” and “Must Be Doin’ Somethin’ Right,” are some of his hits. In 2006 “Must Be Doin’ Somethin’ Right” won the “Hottest Video of the Year” award from the fan-voted, CMT Music Awards. He is slated to release a new album this Fall.
A huge accomplishment for Currington was being chosen to record “Party of Two” with country star Shania Twain. Other bragging rights include being named one of the 20 Sexiest Southern Men by CMT, one of Nashville’s “25 Most Beautiful People” by Nashville Lifestyles’ magazine (which he has also graced the cover of), an “On the Verge” artist by USA Today and has also appeared in People’s “Sexiest Man Issue.”
