Currington's charisma heats up honky-tonk

Tuesday, February 21, 2006

I'm sure Billy Currington is used to hanging out in smoky, sweaty honky-tonks, but I'm not. Packed as tight as a new pack of smokes, the sold-out crowd at The Round Up in Davie responded enthusiastically to every note, every hip-swivel, every guitar lick Currington and his four-member band played.

Unlike the rest of the crowd who knew what to expect, I foolishly thought that at such a small venue, I would get a better look at my guy. Didn't happen. But there were moments I thought he was singing just to me.
Currington, looking hot in a white V-neck T-shirt and jeans and wearing his favorite tear-drop silver necklace, opened with his new single, Why Why Why, one of four songs he wrote on his gold-selling Doing Something Right.

He followed with I Want To Be A Hillbilly, which always tickles me because, well, his name is Billy, so he literally is a hill-Billy. (I'm not the only one that thinks that's a hoot. His T-shirts — $25 — say Hillbilly on the front, Billy Currington '06 on the back.)

His 15-song set would have been better if he'd stuck to songs from his two albums. Stand By Me and Hank Williams' Family Tradition left me cold. And Party For Two, his duet with Shania Twain may be one of his most recognizable songs, seemed wasted without Twain.

Opening for Currington was local phenom Jesse Lee. The petite redhead from Boca Raton impressed me with her stage presence and her song-writing skills. When she said she was going to perform a song she'd written, I wasn't convinced she could pull it off, especially after performing Reba McEntire's No. 1 hit, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter.

But her waltz, Armed with Roses, was a valiant effort by this newcomer. Lee lives in Nashville now, where Craig Morgan is producing her new album. She attended the Dreyfoos School of the Arts, then was home-schooled until graduation. She's in her second year at Nashville's Belmont University. Remember her name. You'll be buying her CDs soon.

As we side-stepped our way out of the crowded club, I thought this venue is not for the claustrophobic. It was too hot, too smoky, too loud, too crowded and, at 50 miles south, too far, on a Sunday night. And it just didn't do Currington justice. When he opens for Brad Paisley next month, the boy will get the stage he deserves.

New country artist Billy Currington hit the scene with an intense autobiographical ballad, Walk A Little Straighter, about his alcoholic father. Since then, he has proven he's not afraid to make a music video with a hot lady. The video for his second single, I Got A Feelin', featured ex- Baywatch babe Gena Lee Nolin, and he now appears in seemingly endless repetition on CMT in Shania Twain's Party for Two. When he's not making videos, you might find Currington eating crunchy peanut butter in his underwear.

Five deserted-island discs
1. Greatest Hits, Keith Whitley. Keith's voice and delivery were truly one of a kind. This collection is a perfect place to start recognizing that.
2. Motown, Michael McDonald. These are some of my favorite songs of all time, and Michael's soulfulness really captures the best parts of the songs. Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing is a great song. I just love it.
3. Stardust, Willie Nelson. It brings back good memories of sitting around listening to this record with my dad.
4. Strait Out of the Box boxed set, George Strait. I've been a fan of his for a long time, and this set has a lot of songs that weren't singles and it's got all the old stuff and a lot of songs you'd hear on the radio, so it's a good one to have.
5. Pyromania, Def Leppard. Mutt Lange is one of my favorite producers, and this is the record I listened to when I was first getting into my teenage years. We'd crank this one up riding around the square on Friday nights. This record's the one that made my friends and me get a little crazy.

Five things I can't live without
1. Crunchy peanut butter. It's got to be crunchy. You've got to have this in your kitchen to survive.
2. Underwear. Doesn't matter what brand or what kind, as long as it does what it's supposed to.
3. A truck. I don't care about many specifics, but it has to be four-wheel drive. What would I do without my truck?
4. Fishing pole. I've been fishing since I was really little, and it keeps me focused.
5. My management. These days, I have no idea how I'd get along without someone telling me what to do and where to be and all that.
The three sexiest people alive
1. Sandra Bullock.
2. Sheryl Crow.
3. Kelly Davis in Fort Worth! (You don't know her.)

Billy Top 6 Fitness Tips

1) Make an effort to do cardio in the morning since that's when you have the most energy. You'll be more likely to get your workout in.

2) Focus on a healthier diet by consulting a nutritionist.

3) When getting back into the workout regimen, start with a very simple plan. The most common mistake is to mimic a friend's workout that you think is in good shape.

4) Find a cardio workout you enjoy. There are so many options! Racquetball, tennis, hiking, bike riding, etc.

5) Consider cutting your alcohol intake in half---you'll see a big difference!

6) The biggest misconception about freeweights training is that it will bulk you up. Stick to higher reps and lighter weights to tone.
