Before They Were Famous: Billy Currington

Billy Currington‘s fans know the country singer looks pretty good showing off his toned arms. While he’s spent some time in the gym, a job pouring cement certainly helped sculpt his bod. One of the jobs he had before hitting it big with ‘Walk a Little Straighter Daddy’ in 2003 was working 16 hours a day at a cement plant. He also worked at a paper mill after high school and a pawn shop before getting his big break.

That break actually came through another pre-fame job. Currington was a personal trainer, and it was there he met a publishing executive who helped him land a publishing deal. Quickly he was noticed as a smooth singer, and by 2003 he was on his way to cutting his debut album. The cement truck will forever be parked for this country hitmaker.
