#CountryStrong Benefit Raises Big Bucks for Orlando

orlandostrong

Almost 10,000 people experienced four hours of music from Maddie & Tae, Tyler Farr, Jerrod Niemann, Canaan Smith, Billy Currington, Easton Corbin, Parmalee, Michael Ray and Cole Swindell at Orlando’s CFE Arena last night (6/22) during K92.3’s Country Strong concert, the Cox/Orlando and WWKA benefit for those affected by the recent mass shooting.

“Members and first responders of the Orlando Police Department and Fire Department, doctors, nurses and surgeons who attended to many of the victims, and many of their family and friends were in the audience,” MD/morning co-host Ashley Stegbauer tells Country Aircheck. “[The show] was emotional, but brought such a sense of community, peace and healing, which was a major goal.”

“An absolute success and a truly memorable and healing night for Orlando,” adds PD Drew Bland. “Major thanks to our team at K923, Cox Media Group and the countless caring people in Nashville who helped make this happen in such a short period of time.”

Proceeds are being tallied and will go the city’s OneOrlando Fund. Donations are still be accepted here.

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:
