Currington Ready To Return After Dealing With Abuse
Country star BILLY CURRINGTON is returning to the music scene after spending the last six months in therapy to deal with demons stemming from childhood abuse. The Whole Lot More singer last year (07) revealed his alcoholic stepfather used to regularly subject him to alcohol-fuelled beatings. So Currington decided to take half a year out from his music career to focus on a number of flaws in his own character, including a terrible temper, that were caused by his stepdad's abuse. And now the 34-year-old has put the past behind him, he's eyeing a return to performing. He says, "My life was in an unhealthy place. I feel fortunate that I was in the right place to be able to take that short break and look at my inner self to begin a journey to fix what I felt was broken."
