The same day we told you that conservatives were ticked off at Tim McGraw for supporting the Sandy Hook Benefit that supports anti gun laws, Billy Currington backed out of the show.

His exact words:

I’ve never been one to take on controversial issues – I’m a singer. I do feel strongly about honoring and supporting the Sandy Hook community and will be making a donation to a local organization. I appreciate people’s freedom and passion for whatever cause they want to support, however, I am choosing to step aside from this fundraiser and will focus instead on the rest of the tour dates as I look forward to being on the road with Tim and Chase and having a blast with all of the fans.
