Easton Corbin debut coming in March

Thursday, January 14, 2010 – Easton Corbin's self-titled debut album is slated for release March 2 on Mercury Nashville. With a baritone drawl, the country singer has charted with his first single, A Little More Country Than That, which debuted in August.

"This song identifies who I am," the Trenton, Fla. native said. "It shows character and that's important where I'm from. You learn to say 'yes, ma'am' and 'no, sir,' and to open the door for the ladies."

Like his heroes Keith Whitley, George Jones and Merle Haggard, Corbin wrote 4 of the 11 tracks and is produced by Carson Chamberlain (Billy Currington).

Continuing to make the radio rounds, this week Corbin will perform in North Carolina, entertain at a St. Jude's event in Maryland and make two stops in his home state of Florida. The remainder of the month rounds out with visits for stations in Tennessee, Wisconsin, Iowa and Virginia.

Growing up. Corbin spent much of his time on his grandparent's cattle farm and as an active member of FFA and 4-H. He began taking guitar lessons at age 15 and would practice every day for hours when he got home from school. After earning a business degree through the College of Agriculture at the University of Florida, he married and moved to Music City. Shortly after, Mercury Nashville signed him and he quit his job at Ace Hardware to pursue his lifelong dream.

"Clockwork" relates how lovers risk reaping the same rewards or punishment over and over. ...
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 ...
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. ...
