December 2, 2009 at 12:32 PM (PT)
MERCURY/NASHVILLE artist BILLY CURRINGTON has established GLOBAL SOUTH RELIEF, an organization that will deliver supplies and basic necessities to various Central AMERICAN countries. CURRINGTON has chosen GUATEMALA and COSTA RICA as the first countries to benefit from the organization.
He said: "I've been so inspired by the people of these countries. They survive on very little and it serves as a reminder that I am very blessed and can provide assistance. The goal is to make this an annual trip and to reach as many countries as we can in the future to provide these people with some relief."
CURRINGTON and songwriters BRETT JONES, SCOTTY EMERICK and DALLAS DAVIDSON will perform a free show this SATURDAY (12/5) at 5:30p (ET) at SLOPPY JOE's in KEY WEST to raise awareness for the effort. After the show, CURRINGTON, JONES, EMERICK and DAVIDSON will travel to GUATEMALA and COSTA RICA to deliver the first round of goods.
