Billy Currington

Concert Review: Billy Currington at the Berglund Center

Cowboy hats, boots, and beers abound in the crowd as Billy Currington charmed ladies and country lovers alike at the beautiful Berglund Performing Arts Theatre, Friday night. Women and girls of all ages lined the front of the stage, some on shoulders, all with their hands in the air, trying to get a little loving from backwards-hat, tight t-shirt wearing Currington.  He graciously obliged, even taking selfies from the stage and kissing many hands after the show concluded.

The 43-year-old Nashville veteran performed his greatest hits and his personal favorites from past albums.   Admittedly, I am not your conventional pop country music fan.  I haven’t been to a country show since Brad Paisley came to town with Taylor Swift, long before Taylor went pop.  However, I’ve always had a soft spot for Billy Currington.  He and his people have an uncanny knack for choosing songs that highlight the deep, rich tone of his voice and adhere perfectly to his “ladies’ man” persona.
