But if I was in Georgia, I’d be on a boat out on the ocean somewhere fishing. The fried chicken, the green beans, the mashed potatoes and the biscuits that she cooked. If you had your choice to do a duet of your own song, who would you want to be your duet partner? There are not a lot of great up-tempo duets, I’d say, but those ballads, those love songs are definitely my favorite duets. One of my favorite singers in country music now would be Le Ann Rimes. Maybe get on my four-wheeler and go out there and ride all day or go ride horses. If you could eat a good meal before you take a long road trip, what would you get? I’ll definitely go back to some of that good cooking I had from my grandma growing up. I’ve seen enough of that when you was a baby.” (laughs) 15.
It’s something I picked up one day, and I don’t even know the name of it, to be honest. I’m not a morning person, so that’s my slowest time of the day. It’s usually about an hour after I fix me some oatmeal.
How long does it take you to get ready in the morning? No, I have no pets, unfortunately, because it’s tough. I ended up giving that dog away to someone, which was tough back then, because you get close to your pets. I don’t even feel like I miss it because everywhere I go on the road is a small town. But if I had to say what I missed about living there, it would be the people themselves.
Currington founded the Global South Relief organization which delivers supplies to those in need in Central American countries.

He first hit the top 5 on the country charts with his second single, "I Got a Feelin'", also from his debut album.
The video was actually shot on a little island called Culebra, which is probably 30 minutes off Puerto Rico. It’s taken us a little while, but we’re gonna get there. A lot of people think that you’re making all this money. If I could pick anybody right now that’s out there to be on tour with, I would say Keith Urban.
The girl that’s in the video, her name is Blanca Soto, and she’s a former Miss Mexico. Were you concerned that people thought you were chasing pop music after making the “Party for Two” video with Shania? I’ve been lucky and done some different shows with different artists but, by far, that’s been my favorite — opening up for Keith — because of his fans.

Where was your video for “Doin’ Somethin’ Right” filmed? I was on my way home to see my family, and it was the weirdest thing. There was this melody and lyrics that stuck with me. I mean, like trying to get into the music business … Who was the lucky girl, and how was she chosen to be the lucky one? Right when we picked up the station, my song came on — “Walk a Little Straighter.” And it was the first time I ever heard it on the radio. I brought it out in a room one day and finished the song. I heard you say in an interview that when you get to a good place in your career, you want to build your grandma a log cabin. sometimes the wheels turn really slow on the financial side. But right now we’re doing good, making a good living. Before your singing career took off, what was the worst job you had? When I was 18, I moved here [Nashville] and worked in a pawn shop. The hardest I would say would be the concrete job I had, pouring concrete, driving all those concrete trucks and working in the warehouses and loading the trucks and driving the crane trucks and stuff like that. If you could pick someone to go on tour with, who would it be and why? They remain closeted, unfortunately, because they know the fat dumb Bubbas on Music Row in Nashville will shut down their careers if they come out. If you search further, you will learn that he had a very bad break-up with a now ex-girlfriend who had his fishing boat picked up by he state, then went to the auction, bought it back and re-sold it for alot of money while Billy Currington was on tour. Someone in the public eye, like Currington, would most def. (Particularly in a business as homophobic and narrow-minded as country music!
