One more traditionalist for Nashville

Mike Sudhalter  |  February 23, 2010


Country newcomer Easton Corbin
is bringing a little bit of
Trenton, Florida to Nashville

I listened to the new Easton Corbin album as I fell asleep on Monday night. I closed my eyes and thought I was listening to George Strait.

Corbin's single, "A Little More Country Than That", is just a sneak preview of an album that shows Nashville just made room for one more traditionalist.

At other times, he sounds like Joe Nichols. But the northern Florida native is no clone. He has a sound all his own and had a hand in writing four of the 11 songs on the album. He was smart enough to pick quality songwriters on the other tunes.

One of my favorite tunes is "This Far From Memphis." He's in Miami alone. But his mood is more the blues, hence Memphis.

That's a sad one, but then there's "The Way Love Looks" to pick you right back up and put a smile on your face.

This is a really good week for country music. New albums out for Sarah Buxton, who's waited a long time to release a full-album.

And the very-talented Josh Thompson. I heard his EP, and it was great. I can't wait to hear the entire album.

I haven't listened to all of it yet, but Mindy McCready released a comeback album, in which she recorded "The Dance." Yes, the Garth Brooks classic penned by Tony Arata. And re-recorded two of her hits from the mid-90's - "Guys Do It All The Time" and "Ten Thousand Angels." That should be another interesting listen.
