| Country music’s Billy Currington, with special guest David Nail, is scheduled to perform on The Big E’s Comcast Arena Stage Friday, Sept. 28 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $29 & $39 and go on sale Thursday, June 7 at 10 a.m. at Ticketmaster, TheBigE.com and Charge-by-Phone – 1-800-745-3000.
Currington’s latest album, Enjoy Yourself, epitomizes the mood of his concerts and this happy-go-lucky Georgia native stays true to his word.
“That’s what I want people to think about doing when they hear my music,” he said. “I want them to have a good time.”
He has sold millions of albums and ten of his songs have made it to the Top 10. Seven of those hit No. 1 – “Pretty Good At Drinkin’ Beer,” “That’s How Country Boys Roll,” “People Are Crazy,” ”Don’t,” “Must Be Doin’ Somethin’ Right,” “Good Directions” and “Let Me Down Easy.” He has toured with the likes of Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley and Sugarland. Tour mate Carrie Underwood notes that Billy’s “talent and charm” have made crowds fall in love with him. He also received the compliment of a lifetime from David Letterman, who said about Billy’s “People Are Crazy” performance, “This song will change your life. You’re not going to do any better than this song here.”
His multiple nominations include two 2010 Grammy nominations (Male Country Vocal Performance and Best Country Song) for “People Are Crazy,” which also received nominations for Single and Song of the Year from the Academy of Country Music, as well as Single, Song and Video of the Year from the Country Music Association. He was honored with a 2006 nomination for Top New Male Vocalist at the ACMS, which followed 2005 ACM and CMA nominations for “Party For Two,” his duet with Shania Twain.
Currington proudly claimed the “Hottest Video of the Year” trophy at the fan-voted 2006 CMT Music Awards for “Must Be Doin’ Somethin’ Right.”
Despite his laid-back demeanor, Billy has earned a reputation as a hard-working entertainer who puts everything he’s got into his shows every night. He’s taken the stage several times at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, the very facility that he helped build on his day job while pursuing his musical dreams.
Enjoy Yourself is Currington’s fourth album since he burst onto the scene in 2003. It builds on the success of his 2008 collection, Little Bit of Everything, which yielded three No. 1 hits: “Don’t,” “People Are Crazy” and “That’s How Country Boys Roll.”
David Nail, a unique artist whose music is a rare gift of natural melody and soul, opens the show. This country gentleman’s voice proved popular when his history-making “Let it Rain” hit #1. He’s also up for Breakthrough Songwriter at the Music Row Awards.
