Billy Currington, Georgia’s sensational country artist is bringing his signature sounds to the Ogden Theater!
William Matthew "Billy" Currington was born in Savannah (Georgia) in 1973 and is a singer and songwriter. He played football in high school and his dream was to play professionally. He said in an interview, “I was working toward that, but I started slacking on my grades and wasn’t allowed to play football my senior year. That automatically meant I couldn’t go pro, so that year I purchased a guitar at a pawn shop. Music became my thing. So, things happen for a reason. If you get kicked off the football team, or something you love gets messed up, don’t worry about it. There will be something better around the corner.” After high school, he moved to Nashville to pursue a career in country music and honed his craft for many years. He got a record deal in 2003 and his debut studio album hit #17 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. He went on to have a stellar career with 6 studio albums, 1 compilation album, 13 music videos, and 19 singles (10 of which have topped Billboard’s Country Airplay chart). He’s received many accolades including a CMT Music Award (for Hottest Video of the Year) and he’s been nominated for 2 Academy of Country Music Awards (for Single Record of the Year and Song of the Year) as well as a Grammy Award (for Male Country Vocal Performance).
