Currington Drops Out of McGraw Sandy Hook Concert
April 17, 2015
Country singer/songwriter Billy Currington dropped out of the Tim McGraw Sandy Hook Promise benefit concert July 17.
Currington said "I've never been one to take on controversial issues â€” I'm a singer. I do feel strongly about honoring and supporting the Sandy Hook community and will be making a donation to a local organization," Currington wrote. "I appreciate people's freedom and passion for whatever cause they want to support, however, I am choosing to step aside from this fundraiser and will focus instead on the rest of the tour dates as I look forward to being on the road with Tim and Chase and having a blast with all of the fans."
We might have preferred something along the lines of "Tim, have you lost your mind?", but I'd say Currington made the right move and should be given a pass on this one, especially since there is some indication he wasn't aware an already scheduled tour stop was being turned into a benefit for Sandy Hook Promise.
Now, let's hope McGraw himself gives it a rethink.
