The salty sea air breeze. The crisp bite of fresh watermelon on a hot day. The bright sunlight dusting across one’s shoulders. Is it June 20th yet?
While the summer solstice may not be for a couple more months, Billy Currington wishes it could just be “Summer Forever,” which happens to be the title of his current album. The south Georgia native lusts after the feeling of the sunny season, always wanting the warmer months to come sooner rather than later.
“The thing I like most about summer is being warm. I mean, I’m not a big fan of the cold. I grew up in the warmth,” Currington said recently.
Another fun part about the summertime for Currington is the fact that his Summer Forever Tour will be traveling around the country with Kelsea Ballerini as the opening act. Stopping off at some festivals along the way, Currington can be sure to soak up some sunshine in each state.
With any free time, Currington plans to take advantage of the great outdoors by doing some activities he remembers doing back in the day whenever he gets the chance.
“So, every time summer comes, I think beach. I think lakes, whatever. Just being outside.”
Currington’s latest single, “It Don’t Hurt Like It Used To,” keeps making its way up the country charts as the singer continues his time on the road.
