Billy Currington has named his new album Summer Forever, and that title sums up Billy’s approach to touring, too. While some artists brave the harsh winter months to play for fans suffering from cabin fever, Billy tells ABC Radio, “I don’t do that anymore! I don’t tour no Canada in no February! I’m in Hawaii in February.”
Billy had to start his 2015 tour a little earlier, so he did play a few arena shows with snow on the ground outside this year.
“It was cold, and it affects me,” Billy admits. “I mean, there’s a heater going on the bus, my skin’s drying out, I’m having to drink tons more water.”
Since Billy prefers to be outdoors most of the time, he felt cooped up having to stay on his tour bus or inside the arena due to the cold.
He adds, “I don’t want to cry about it, but I have to adapt to get out there. But I’m always dying for the spring when I’m on the mainland.”
Billy has a sweet gig playing The Boulevard Pool at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on May 29. His new album, Summer Forever, is due out June 2 featuring his latest hit, “Don’t It.”
