Billy Currington Explains How He First Got His Voice Heard by Everyone in Nashville

Image Courtesy Mercury NashvilleBilly Currington spent a decade in Nashville before he landed a record deal, but his singing voice was heard by just about everyone in the music business during that time in the trenches.

Billy was one of Music City's most successful demo singers in the late '90s and early 2000s, so he was often hired by songwriters and publishers to sing demonstration versions of the songs they were pitching to major artists. That means Billy was the first person to sing songs that went on to become big hits for other artists.

He tells ABC Radio, "[One was] Blake Shelton, 'Don't Make Me.' There's a couple of George Strait songs that's been out there that I sang. Yeah, there were songs that Tracy Lawrence cut. Sammy Kershaw. Clay Walker. I could go on and on."

Billy's popularity as a demo singer kept growing, but he wasn't content to just sing other people's songs.

"I could have dropped everything I was doing and just sang demos," Billy explains. "I kept them at a medium and just kept working on my own thing and eventually got a record deal."

Billy's perseverance paid off as he closes in on yet another #1 country hit with "Don't It." Look for Billy's sixth album, Summer Forever, to come out June 2.
