WASHINGTON COUNTY FAIR SATURDAY NIGHT LINE-UP
Washington County Fair officials are excited to announce the Saturday National Acts at the West Bend Mutual Insurance Silver Lining Amphitheater. The final night of National Entertainment on Saturday July 27th will feature BILLY CURRINGTON with special guest NORA COLLINS.
Billy Currington’s latest album bears the breezy title Summer Forever, but the talented Georgia native has spent more than a decade in the spotlight proving he’s truly a man for all seasons. Possessing one of the smoothest and most distinct voices in any genre of music, Currington is equally skilled at delivering upbeat summertime anthems as well as exploring the complexities of life and love with a poignant ballad. On Summer Forever, Currington’s sixth studio album, he brings both with a collection of songs that will take the listener on a riveting musical journey and leave them breathless at the end of the ride.
Since his self-titled debut album bowed on Mercury Records in 2003, Currington has scored eleven career No. 1 singles, most recently, “Don’t Hurt Like It Used To.” His other hits that reached the No. 1 spot include such memorable songs as “Good Directions,” “Let Me Down Easy,” “Must Be Doin’ Somethin’ Right,” “People Are Crazy,” “That’s How Country Boys Roll,” “Hey Girl,” and “We Are Tonight.”
Though Currington has grown in knowledge and confidence, his goals in making Summer Forever is the same as when he recorded his debut. “Music is a snapshot of people’s lives and most of all, I want to leave people in a happy place,” he says with a smile. “Whether they’re sitting on a beach listening to this album or they’re walking around their house or cleaning their house or whatever. Wherever they’re at listening to this album, I want to leave them with a happy and peaceful feeling.”
Nora Collins brings a confident and youthful originality to country music – a style she describes as “fun, flirty, relatable and honest.” That individuality is evident in her new EP, Strings. Each song captures her energetic spirit and her talent for songwriting. Her music has already gained the attention of Billboard, Rolling Stone Country, CMT, Radio Disney, & more. She was recently named one of The Boot’s 2019 Artists to Watch. “When people hear my music, my hope is that they will connect to the songs,” Collins says. “There is nothing more special to me than knowing that my lyrics moved someone. Music is the universal language that connects us all, and it’s so cool to see that in action.”
