BILLY CURRINGTON 8 p.m., Timberwood Amphitheater, Magic Springs. $5-$10.
Impressive, Currington. Of the 10 singles you've released in your seven-year career as a country crooner, you've yet to have one not chart in Billboard's country singles charts. And you won a CMA for “Hottest Video” for “Must Be Doing Something Right,”
so you're a bona fide, acknowledged country sex symbol. That's cool. After all, you might as well do country stardom right if you're going to do it, right? Sure, your songs tend to rely on some thin nostalgia every once in a while and, more often than not, sit in the stickiest of bubblegum camps, but, honestly, I can't hate on that for a second. Your songs and videos are about living the life with your boys and harems of gorgeous Southern peaches; you're a CMT superstar and you're doing it well, so props from this music writer. And to boot, just four hours ago you Tweeted
that you finished recording vocal tracks for your new album while in an island music studio. Then you offered to buy airfare for whoever can guess which island. It doesn't matter how you cut it, that's a pretty cool move, Currington. Live the life, take it to Magic Springs this week and take it easy, y'hear?
