If you’re a fan of country music (and let’s face it, most of us do like a song or two at the very least) then you’re probably already familiar with Easton Corbin. His self titled debut album yielded two number one hits back in 2010 and a pretty solid career has followed. Corbin is currently putting the finishing touches on his fourth full studio album and has hit the road to promote his latest single, “A Girl Like You”. Aside from being a gentleman on social media, one of the things that sets him apart from the rest of the country music pack is the fact that he does a meet and greet at nearly every show. Actually connecting with his fans is a genuine priority.
Corbin recently reflected back on hearing himself on the radio for the very first time saying,
“We had just got through doing a little radio show down there in Gainesville for 93.7, and it was just me – it was kind of like a hometown gig … I’m from Trenton, Fla., about 35 miles west. Gainesville is the big radio station, so they had me come in there and do something kind of like for the hometown crowd. We did an acoustic show. So after that was over, I was going to stay home for a few days with my folks. I got in the truck with my brother-in-law and my sister-in-law, and, I mean, right after the gig, sure enough, my song came on; in fact, it was the minute they cranked up the truck to leave the venue parking lot, that’s when it came on – perfect timing. I felt great. I thought, “I’m actually getting heard on the radio!” That’s a dream come true! It was one of those moments when you sit back and say, “Wow!”.
It’s always fun to hear the story of when an artist first hears themselves on the radio- no doubt one of the most important moments in their entire lives- isn’t it? Even better? The opportunity to catch a great musician in concert and so you’ll be happy to know that there are several dates left on Corbin’s tour. Check out the list of shows below!
