Billy Currington had some downtime before recently kicking off his headlining tour (featuring opening act Kip Moore) in Biloxi, Miss., but he used those days to give back to kids in Guatemala.

"We went to a music school while we were there and there were like 30 to 40 kids that went to this school, and the teacher was 18 years old," Billy tells Ashley Mann of the online news site Ashley Mann on Music Row. "She was very well educated in different instruments. And she had only three or four instruments that she was trying to teach all of these kids [on]. So they had to wait in line to play. So, that was one thing that I was like, 'Man, I know we can do something for this.'"

Billy shared moments from his travels via several photos on his Twitter page, including a jam session with some local musicians in San Jose, Guatemala. This laid-back Georgian shared a Coca-Cola with locals in the coffee bean fields and marveled at the work ethic of the children there. "A different world over there. Makes me appreciate so much," Billy said via Twitter.
