Backstage with Billy Currington
The following is part of a broader series meant to inspire rewarding and fun summer activities following the recent launch of Freedom Unlimited.
Music is more than something that you merely listen to. It's an immersive experience and for many music-lovers, it's a lifestyle that is shared with other like-minded folks. And nowhere is that more obvious than the booming music festival industry. Even in an ever-changing digital music world, fans are happy to pay for the experience of sharing live music with their friends and thousands of strangers. Here is a behind-the-scenes look at the 2016 music festival season, created with Paragon.
Country music singer-songwriter Billy Currington isn't new to the music festival circuit. This year alone he's played at Tortuga Music Festival and has scheduled performances at Taste of Country Music Festival, Country on the River and Oro Valley Music Festivals.
As a music festival veteran, Currington has seen festivals continuously grow in popularity over the years. "People really like that they can pay one price and see one or two artists that they know, 10 or 12 others and be introduced to so much more music," Currington says.
