Billy Currington At Grand Ole Opry Country Music Show - Nashville
CMT award-winning, recurring Number One Country hit artist Billy Currington was born in 1973 in Savannah, Georgia. He was raised in Rincon, Georgia with his four sisters and two brothers. He auditioned during his junior year of high school for a spot at the country music theme park, Opryland in Nashville. Though he did not gig the gig, he moved to Nashville after graduation, still with the dream of pursuing a career in country music. There, he worked singing in a bar, with a concrete company and as a personal trainer. It was one of his clients as a personal trainer that led Currington to recording demo tapes and writing songs. After receiving cuts by George Strait, Tracy Byrd and Marty Rayborn, he signed to Mercury Records in 2003.
