However, when it comes to his personal life, Billy admits he just simply doesn’t have time. “I don’t have anything going on (in my personal life),” Billy tells Country Weekly.

However, Billy says he’s not ruling out plans for the future, in which he does see a wife and babies. “I have just such a busy life that it wouldn’t be fair to be married right now and try to have kids, but I really feel within a couple of years that I’ll be at a point where I can’t use this excuse [anymore],” he says. “Most of all, I’ll be in a situation where I don’t have to do 180 shows (a year)anymore. I can bring it down to 80 to 100 and survive.”-

What kind of father does Billy see himself being when that time comes? “I’d be a very simple and very open and very energetic [father],” he explains. “I would do a lot of things different than I’ve seen in the past. That’s one thing I’m excited about one day.”

In 2003 to 2004

Currington’s self-titled debut album was released in September 2003. The album’s first single was “Walk a Little Straighter”. This song is about his relationship with his alcoholic stepfather, including a chorus that Currington wrote when he was just 12 years old.”Walk a Little Straighter” went to number 8 that year on the Hot Country Songs chart.

He scored a third consecutive top 10 hit with Shania Twain in late 2004 with the song “Party for Two”. The song was from Twain’s Greatest Hits album and was released in two formats: a pop version with Mark McGrath as Twain’s duet partner, and the country version, which featured Currington.
