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.

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: Mandell counts for a lot – Eleni Mandell doesn't hit you over the head - for the most part - with her songs. The LA-based singer/songwriter is on the low-key side when it comes to the music as well as her vocal delivery. But her seemingly laidback style creeps up on you, making you want to listen. And in a nearly 75-minute mainly solo effort with an acoustic guitar... »»»
Concert Review: Rucker brings true southern style – Not all that long ago, contemporary country music concerts were evaluated on the amount (or lack thereof) of authentic country music elements in the performers' content. And make no mistake about it, this is still a relevant issue since so much of what passes as 'country' these days is hardly that at all. But perhaps a more pressing... »»»

No matter what you say, it's The Deslondes In the spirit of hard-hitting journalism, it seemed logical to ask Deslondes vocalist/guitarist Riley Downing the Mike-Wallace-from-60-Minutes question that has to be on everyone's mind: How the hell do you say the New Orleans-based band's name? "It's pronounced 'dez lawn,'" says Downing. "I know there's different ways that people have pronounced it over the course of history...... »»»
Watkins Family make time From their first, self-titled, major label release, the Allison Krauss-produced, "Nickel Creek," two-thirds of that trio - musical siblings Sara and Sean Watkins - have been in the musical spotlight continually since 1999.

Milk Carton Kids find themselves on "Monterey" Joey Ryan, half of acoustic folk duo the Milk Carton Kids, is girding his loins for the long trip from the band's Los Angeles home base to Australia. Although he's made this trip before, he's yet to acclimate completely to it.... »»»
The Blade CD review - The Blade
Ashley Monroe gains more acclaim for other projects than she does for her own solo efforts. Monroe is one third of side group Pistol Annies. She sang with Blake Shelton on his hit "Lonely Tonight." She received praise for her first proper solo album, "Like a Rose," in 2013, although that was a release that stood on the strength of the songs because three singles produced zero hits. Can "The Blade" turn the trick? »»»
Bittersweet CD review - Bittersweet
Australian songwriter Kasey Chambers has never managed to gain the profile elsewhere that she has Down Under, despite consistently releasing great albums as a solo artist and as a duo with her ex-husband. Almost a full year after initially releasing "Bittersweet," Chambers is giving the strong album an official U.S. release. »»»
