Easton Corbin, who came to the attention of country music fans, with the release of his top 20 single, “I’m A Little More Country Than That,” is getting ready to release his debut CD. Self-titled, the CD will release March 2.
Four of the songs on the CD were written by Eason, who says he found inspiration from Keith Whitley, George Jones and Merle Haggard. When talking about “I’m A Little More Country Than That,” Easton said, "This song identifies who I am. 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."
If you follow Easton on Twitter, you know that this young man is keeping busy. He is still visiting radio stations, recently performed in North Carolina, and entertained at an event for St. Jude’s in Baltimore. He also has two stops coming up in his home state of Florida. His Twitter tells us he will be in Chattanooga on Wednesday night, and also has shows in Wisconsin, Iowa and Virginia in January.
If you haven’t visited Easton’s MySpace page, you need to do that and listen to some of his other music. I love “I Can’t Love You Back”. He also has a little of “Roll With It,” and “The Way Love Looks,” for us to enjoy. And, that great video for “Little More Country” is up there, too.
I’m sure all of Easton’s fans are looking forward to the release of the new CD – I know I am. I also hope he will get back in this area sometime soon. He had a great show in Bristol, Tenn., shortly after the release of “I’m A Little More Country”.
That’s going to take care of this morning. I have a busy day planned – I also have more e-mail to answer, and hope to take care of that sometime this evening. You guys have a great Monday. Write when you get a chance!
Talk to you soon,
