Billy Currington Establishes “Global South Relief”


Billy Currington has established an organization titled “Global South Relief,” which will attempt to relieve stress to various Central American countries by delivering supplies to those in need. The first countries to benefit will be Guatemala and Costa Rica. During a recent visit to Central America, Currington became aware of the desperate need for and lack of the most basic necessities and knew that he could make a difference.

“I’ve been so inspired by the people of these countries,” said Currington. “They survive on very little and it serves as a reminder that I am very blessed and can provide assistance. The goal is to make this an annual trip and to reach as many countries as we can in the future to provide these people with some relief.”

In conjunction with Nashville songwriters Brett Jones (“That’s How Country Boys Roll”), Scotty Emerick (“Beer For My Horses”) and Dallas Davidson (“Start A Band”), Currington will play a free show at 5:30pm this Saturday at Sloppy Joe’s in Key West, Florida in order to raise awareness for the effort. Following the event, Currington, Jones, Emerick and Davidson will travel to both countries to deliver the first round of goods.
