Billy Currington is doubling down on his top slot in the Billboard Country Airplay chart this week, marking his second week at No. 1 with “It Don’t Hurt Like It Used To.” The song is only one of six country tunes to have a multi-week No. 1 so far this year.
Billy Currington is an artist who has more hits that you realize. Like Rick Springfield or Richard Marx, Currington leaves you saying “And this is his song, too!” over and over again. At WE Fest, every one of those hits sounded better than on the record.
Today we focus on an artist who failed his first audition for the Grand Ole Opry while he was still a junior in high school, but who never let that early set back phase him, moving to Nashville after graduation to pursue his dream.
