The weather forecast called for a chance of thunderstorms May 14th during the Celebrate Virginia Live concert featuring Billy Currington so my friends and I packed our rain gear just in case and headed to Fredericksburg for the evening. What we weren’t prepared for were heavy winds and dirt blowing all over the place. By the time Billy took the stage I felt like I had dust and grime over every inch of my body. I can’t imagine what it must have been like performing under those conditions. I did wonder though, as the wind increased and thunderstorm warnings were issued, if Billy had flashbacks of his horrific experience in Alberta, Canada back in August 2009 when the stage collapsed during a wind storm and he suffered a concussion. However Billy Currington is a true professional and he gave a great performance despite the threatening weather – now THAT’S how a country boy rolls!
Billy sang many of his hits during the first half of his set – “Must Be Doin’ Something Right,” “Why, Why, Why,” “Don’t,” “That’s How Country Boys Roll.” His vocals were unaffected by all the dust. He even managed to sing “I Got A Feelin’” without missing a beat while an over-sized cow mascot danced among the crowd right in front of him.
