Billy Currington Brings Soul to His Summer Forever Tour

Billy Currington

On February 27th platinum-selling, Grammy, ACM, and CMA nominated artist, Billy Currington, took his Summer Forever tour to his home state of Georgia where he delivered a powerful rendition of the Ray Charles classic, “Georgia On My Mind.”

The Macon, GA crowd was brought to their feet as Currington delivered soulful vocals paying homage to the place he still calls home.

His latest single, “It Don’t Hurt Like It Used To,” off of his sixth studio album, Summer Forever, continues to climb the charts. Written by Currington with Cary Barlowe and Shy Carter, he has said it’s one of his favorite songs on the album.  He explains that it was a fluke that it was even written, “I just stopped by to see a couple of buddies, Cary and Shy one night. Cary and I picked up guitars at the same time and played basically the same chord, and the next thing you know we were writing the song.”

The song follows his first single off of Summer Forever, “Don’t It,” which climbed to number 1 on the country airplay charts, marking it his 10th #1 single, and became an anthem of summer 2015.
Currington’s series of chart-toppers include “Don’t,” “Good Directions,” “Let Me Down Easy,” “Must Be Doin’ Something Right,” “People Are Crazy,” “Pretty Good At Drinkin’ Beer,” “That’s How Country Boys Roll,” “Hey Girl,” and “We Are Tonight.”

The Summer Forever tour is still going strong with upcoming dates through April:
