Corbin is all over soph release

Monday, June 18, 2012 – Easton Corbin will release his second album, "All Over The Road," on Sept. 18 on Mercury.

The 11-song set includes the single Lovin' You Is Fun, written by Bob DiPiero and Jim Beavers. The set was produced by Carson Chamberlain.

"'All Over the Road' is a fun title," Corbin said, "but it's also actually what we're doing out there. We're all over the road trying to get music out to everybody, so I just thought it made sense."

"All Over The Road" is the follow-up to Easton's acclaimed self-titled debut that Mercury released in 2010. "Easton Corbin" spawned back-to-back number ones with his first two singles - A Little More Country Than That and Roll With It, making him the first country male artist in 17 years to have his first two consecutive singles reach number one.

In December 2010, the Florida native won all of the Breakthrough Artist awards at the inaugural American Country Awards - Artist of the Year: Breakthrough Artist, Single of the Year: Breakthrough Artist and Music Video: Breakthrough Artist for "A Little More Country Than That."

He is now opening for Brad Paisley on the Virtual Reality Tour.

About to Get Real CD review - About to Get Real
Seeing Easton Corbin sporting a skinny tie on the cover notwithstanding, from the first track "Kiss Me One More Time," Corbin gives notice that this is no "bro country" album. He is singing to the women. Next, "Guys and Girls," could've easily fallen prey to the "...since there's a banjo, it must be country" vibe, but it is a country song too! "Clockwork" relates how lovers risk reaping the same rewards or punishment over and over. »»»
All Over The Road CD review - All Over The Road
Easton Corbin jumped on to the country music scene two years ago with a self-titled album and a fun, easy-going single, titled I'm A Little More Country Than That. The Florida native's staying power or lack there of will be determined by his 11-song sophomore album, "All Over The Road." Corbin makes a strong case with this album that combines strong ballads and impressive mid-tempo songs. The songs are well-written as Corbin enlisted the services of accomplished songwriters »»»
Easton Corbin CD review - Easton Corbin
You may not always be able to judge a book by its cover. But the image of a north Florida country boy playing a guitar and sitting next to a dog on a front porch perfectly describes what the mood of the 11 songs will be. Corbin recalls George Strait on several songs, but none more than the hit A Little More Country Than That. It's his debut song and firmly establishes him on the traditional side of the country/pop-country canyon. But Corbin isn't simply a sound-a-like. »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Lane, Ramsey, Barrett cover their bases – Covers played a far more prominent role than usual at a country show. And instead of what is typically the least course of resistance in recent years of country artists succumbing to their renditions of a rock hit, Chris Lane, Mason Ramsey and Gabby Barrett played songs that actually were country hits. Interestingly, the youngest of the bunch, Ramsey,... »»»
Concert Review: Mumford and Sons up to snuff, for the most part – Mumford and Sons have always played it smart when it has come to career moves. They have not overtoured by becoming regular fixtures on the touring circuit. Their M.O. is to tour just enough upon an album release and then disappear for a stretch. Ditto for releasing new music ("Delta" just came out last month, Mumford's first release... »»»
