Die neue CD vom "Top New Country Artist 2010" (Billboard)
Mit seinem selbstbetitelten Debut-Album (2010) schaffte Newcomer Easton Corbin es, sich schnell im amerikanischen Musikmarkt zu etablieren. Seine ersten zwei Singles "Roll With It" und "A Little More Country Than That" erreichten beide Platz 1 in den Country-Charts, das Debut-Album Platz 10 in den Pop-Charts. Von Billboard wurde er als "Top New Country Artist 2010" ausgezeichnet, sein
Debut-Album als "Country Breakthrough Album of the Year" (iTunes).
Jetzt ist er mit seinem neuen Album "All Over The Road" zurück. "Ein lustiger Titel" so Corbin, "aber es ist tatsächlich was wir da draußen machen. Wir sind überall unterwegs und versuchen die Musik an die Leute zu bringen". Das Album wurde vom gefeierten Nashville-Produzenten Carson Chamberlain produziert.
Inspiriert von Künstlern wie George Strait, George Jones, Merle Haggard und Keith Whitley, ist der 30-Jährige Corbin ein ernst zu nehmender Star der heutigen Country-Szene. Sein Sound ist neo-traditionell, seine Songs zeitlos und haben Ohrwurm-Charakter. Seine Stimme ist wie für das Genre gemacht - Easton Corbin ist ein echter American Country Singer-Songwriter.
With two No. 1 singles, multiple awards and nominations, plus performances on some of the biggest stages in the world, Easton Corbin made an auspicious entree with his self-titled debut album.
The release of his sophomore effort, All Over the Road, builds on that success and delivers music that confirms that Easton Corbin is here to stay.
When Easton broke on the scene in 2009 with not one, but two, No. 1 singles, “A Little More Country Than That” and “Roll With It,” and a Top 15 hit, “I Can’t Love You Back,” the country music world was put on notice. He became the first country male artist in 17 years to have his first two consecutive singles reach No. 1. Billboard named Easton the Top New Country Artist of 2010 and named "Roll With It" the No. 6 Hot Country Song of the Year. He was ranked No. 9 on Billboard’s list of Top Country Artists-Male, listed between Blake Shelton and Tim McGraw.
With three American Country Awards in 2010 and blockbuster tours with Rascal Flatts, Brad Paisley and Blake Shelton, Easton set the bar high for his sophomore release. Not surprisingly, the hard-working Gilchrist County, Florida native—“Everybody knows everybody,” he says—delivers in spades.
The album features tunes from Nashville’s A-list songwriters, including Bob DiPiero, Ashley Gorley, Terry McBride, Tommy Lee James, Tony Martin and Mark Nesler, among others. Easton co-wrote two songs on the new collection, including the devotional “A Thing For You” and the revelational “This Feels A Lot Like Love.”
Touring with Rascal Flatts, Brad Paisley and Blake Shelton put Easton on a stage that afforded him a unique opportunity to learn from the best. “As a new artist you learn watching those guys, what they do, and of course with a big crowd like that you’ve got to learn how to entertain. It’s a different thing from playing a club.”
The experience left an impression on Easton, who rose to the occasion. “Growing up I was always self-conscious getting out there singing in front of people,” he admits. “I guess I had a little stage fright. You get a little nervous out there, because you’re always thinking, ‘I wonder if they think I’m good?’ But through all those experiences it gives you more confidence to get out there and be confident in what you do and get out there and really sell it and be yourself and do what you do.”
While Easton has plenty of long-term goals, the most important ones are simple. “I want to get my music to as many people as possible,” he says with a determined smile. “You’ve got to be good to your fans, and you’ve got to make music that’s true to you.
