Biography

Easton Corbin is a native of Trenton, Florida. He lived on his grandparents' farm following his parents' divorce, and was introduced to country music-themed television programs such as Hee Haw. After taking guitar lessons at fourteen from session musician Pee Wee Melton at Dixie Music Center, he joined a band which won opening slots at a music festival and for Janie Fricke and Mel McDaniel.

He attended the University of Florida's College of Agricultural and Life Sciences and earned an agribusiness degree, before marrying his wife, Briann, on September 2, 2006. They moved to Nashville, Tennessee, on October 14, 2006, where he worked at an Ace Hardware and performed at writers' nights.[4] A distant cousin who is a professor of entertainment management recommended him to contacts in Nashville.

On The Bobby Bones Show on September 3, 2013, Corbin mentioned that he is no longer married.

Music career

2005-11: Easton Corbin

In 2005 Easton Corbin entered a contest for the Annual Suwannee River Jam, which was the start of his career. In 2008 Corbin recorded a six track demo CD with Nashville based songwriter Reese Wilson and producer Steve Davis, on the CD were three full instrument tracks and three acoustic tracks. The songs on the demo were "All About You", "I Ain't A Highway", "Missin' You", "Gettin' 'Got, Good", "Miracles Happen" and a cover of Hank Williams, Jr's "Eleven Roses". Only a small number of the demo discs were pressed so the disc itself is very scarce and has become a highly sought after collectors item for hardcore fans. The tracks can be found digitally on YouTube. The tracks have never been added to any of Corbin's albums yet, making them still unreleased.[5]

Joe Fisher, senior director of A&R at Universal Music Group Nashville, signed Easton Corbin to the Mercury Nashville label in 2009. He released his debut single, "A Little More Country Than That", in July. Rory Lee Feek of Joey + Rory wrote the song with Don Poythress and Wynn Varble. The label released a four-song digital extended play entitled A Little More Country Than That in August,[4] shortly before the single entered Top 40 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. Corbin's self-titled debut album was released in March 2010, under the production of Carson Chamberlain.[2] The album had first-week sales of 43,000 copies, making for the highest first-week sales on the Mercury Nashville label in seven years.[6]

"A Little More Country Than That" peaked at Number One on the country chart dated for the week ending April 3, 2010,[7][8][9] making Easton Corbin the first solo male country artist to send a debut single to Number One since Dierks Bentley in 2003 with "What Was I Thinkin'".[10][11] "Roll with It" was released as the album's second single; in October it also hit Number One. The album's third and final single, "I Can't Love You Back," released to radio in November 2010 and reached a peak of number 14 in early 2011.

To promote Easton Corbin, he went on tour as an opening act for Brad Paisley's H20 World Tour, which began in May 2010.[10]

2012-13: All Over the Road

Easton Corbin's fourth single, "Lovin' You Is Fun", was released in February 2012. It peaked at number 5 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. It served as the lead-off single to his second studio album, All Over the Road, which was released on September 18, 2012. The album's second single, the title track, was released in January 2013 and peaked at number 3 on Country Airplay in September 2013. Both singles were also certified Gold by the RIAA.

2014-2016: About to Get Real

Corbin's third studio album, About to Get Real, was released on June 30, 2015.[12] Its first single, "Clockwork", was released to country radio in January 2014. It peaked at number 32 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. The album's second single, "Baby Be My Love Song", was released on September 8, 2014,[13] and became Corbin's fifth Top 5 country hit. "Yup" and "Are You with Me" were released as the album's third and fourth singles, and peaked at numbers 35 and 41 on the Country Airplay chart, respectively.

2017-present: Upcoming fourth studio album

On January 30, 2017, Corbin released "A Girl Like You" to country radio, the lead single from his upcoming fourth studio album. The song climbed the charts very slowly, and peaked at #6 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart after charting in excess of a year. Although the single reached the top 10, Mercury Nashville terminated Corbin from the label in February 2018, immediately after the song peaked at #6.[14]
