Billy Currington’s Troubles Mount
NASCAR chose to drop the yellow caution flag when it came to having Billy Currington perform at next month's Sprint All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Charlotte, N.C. On Friday (April 26), officials announced that the singer, who was recently indicted on charges of making terroristic threats and abuse of an elderly person, will be replaced by Josh Turner at the pre-race concert.
Said Marcus Smith, president and general manager of Charlotte Motor Speedway, "Due to Currington's recent indictment, we elected to change our act for the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race."
Set for May 18, the race will now feature South Carolina native Josh.
Billy, known for the hits "People Are Crazy" and "That's How Country Boys Roll," allegedly harassed a 70-year-old tour boat captain on April 15, turning himself in to authorities in Savannah, Ga., on Thursday (April 25). He posted bail a few hours later, according to CNN.
