Billy Currington is a super friendly and down-to-earth guy, and Edwards & Lee have developed a true and mutual friendship over the years. So this news comes as no surprise to us, that Billy is not as active on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as his management team would like him to be. Like everything else in Billy’s life these days, he just does ‘what he wants, when he wants’ and is much happier as a result!
Celebrities and country are utilizing social media to connect more personally with their fans, and truth be told, ‘behind the scenes’ there is much pressure from their managers and handlers to do so on a regular and consistent basis.
And in all honesty, many of the posts, photos and status updates from ‘super social celebrities‘ are actually done by social media teams who are hired to post on behalf of the busy stars.
Billy Currington tells ABC News Radio:
“I like [to keep] a little more to myself sometimes. More than others, I’m sure, but that’s just me, I know people that I’m working with wish I was on it more. I hear that quite a bit, and that makes me not want to be a part of it sometimes.,”I like it, when I want to use it, I’ll use it, and when I don’t, I don’t. “
