About Easton Corbin:

“Easton Corbin has one of those rare, glorious voices that was made—just made—for singing country music.” –American Songwriter

With two No. 1 singles, multiple awards and nominations, plus performances on some of the biggest stages in the world, Mercury Nashville’s Easton Corbin has made a lasting impression on the country music landscape. He became the first country male artist in 17 years to have his first two consecutive singles reach No. 1 with his unapologetic traditional sound in the spirit of Alan Jackson and George Strait, but with a vocal twist that only Easton can deliver. A devotee of Alan, George and Keith Whitley, Easton is the genre’s biggest torchbearer for the neo-traditional movement. Easton’s third album About To Get Real features his current top 5 single “Baby Be My Love Song” which continues to climb the country airplay charts.

AMAZING time in Dallas last night for my album release party at The Rustic! Let's do it again tonight, Baltimore! #AboutToGetReal

EASTON CORBIN PUT TOGETHER A BEAUTIFUL PUZZLE FOR HIS LATEST ALBUM, ABOUT TO GET REAL.

Easton Corbin worked on About to Get Real for a while and finished the project at some point last year. However, he and his producer Carson Chamberlain went back in to record a few more songs, which ended up making the record.

“We felt like so much time has passed, we should go out and beat the bushes, for, I guess you’d say for lack of better terms, and see if there were any other songs out there that were as good or better, because these writers are writing every day great songs, and we did. And we came across three songs called ‘Guys and Girls,’ ‘Diggin’ on You’ and ‘Yup.’ I feel like these three songs really complete this record. So, we took off three existing songs we had cut and replaced them with these three songs,” says Easton. “I feel like that when you have a body of work it’s almost like putting a puzzle together, especially sequencing and the body of work as a whole. And I feel like that all these songs together as a whole really complement each other.”

Easton’s album, About to Get Real, features his latest Top 5 single, “Baby Be My Love Song.”

Audio / Easton Corbin says he and his producer Carson Chamberlain really worked hard to put together his new album, About to Get Real.

“We finished this record probably a year ago, and it was complete, and it was a great record. But we felt like so much time has passed, we should go out and beat the bushes, for, I guess you’d say for lack of better terms, and see if there were any other songs out there that were as good or better, because these writers are writing every day great songs, and we did. And we came across three songs called ‘Guys and Girls,’ ‘Diggin’ on You’ and ‘Yup.’ I feel like these three songs really complete this record.

I feel like that when you have a body of work it’s almost like putting a puzzle together, especially sequencing and the body of work as a whole. And I feel like that all these songs together as a whole really complement each other.”

EASTON CORBIN IS ‘ABOUT TO GET REAL.’

Easton Corbin is about to release his new album, About to Get Real, on Tuesday (June 30th), and he feels it’s a good balance between his traditional country roots and keeping it fresh.

“As an artist, you grow and within that growth process, you do your best to make it current and young, but also with that you stay true to your roots and you have to be real about that. For me, it’s keeping that traditional country element in my songs, but also keeping it fresh. It’s a balance, and I think we’ve done that well with this record.”

About to Get Real features Easton’s current single, “Baby Be My Love Song,” as well as three songs he had a hand in writing.

On release day, Easton will be making the media rounds, but will also be rounding the bases. He’s set to perform an acoustic set at the New York Mets game on Tuesday.

Audio / Easton Corbin says About to Get Real is a great title for his new album.

For me, it’s keeping that traditional country element in my songs, but also keeping it fresh. It’s a balance, and I think we’ve done that well with this record.”

“It’s a big weekend for country fans in NYC…they got their own festival! And it’s just as big of a deal for me to get to kick the whole thing off,” said Bentley. “The ‘Sounds of Summer’ tour has been a total blast so far, and we’re pumped about getting to party with the fans in Boston and Philly this weekend too.”

Of the new single “Riser,” Billboard notes that Bentley “has spent the past two years trickling out singles from the Grammy-nominated album…but all along, he had the secret weapon of ‘Riser’ in his back pocket.” It has also has been dubbed by CMT as its “favorite song on the album” and the career-defining track is “on the cusp of a movement, a defining brand with which he and his audience can identify” (Rolling Stone).

Bentley’s three weekends into his 2015 SOUNDS OF SUMMER TOUR, which will continue this week following FarmBorough (6/26) with stops in Boston, MA (6/27) and Camden, NJ (6/28). For a full list of upcoming tour dates and appearances, visit www.dierks.com.

SCOTTY McCREERY HANGS OUT AND PERFORMS FOR THE ACM LIFTING LIVES CAMPERS.

ACM Award winner Scotty McCreery visited with this year’s ACM Lifting Lives Camp attendees at the Bluebird Café in Nashville on June 22. During the event, McCreery performed acoustic versions of his hits “See You Tonight,” “Feelin’ It,” and “Water Tower Town.” By request of several of the campers, he also performed a verse and chorus of the Conway Twitty classic “Hello Darlin’” and the chorus of the Garth Brooks hit “The River.” Noticing the wildly enthusiastic crowd liked to join in on the songs, McCreery asked them all to sing “Amazing Grace” with him. This was McCreery’s first time to perform at the legendary Bluebird Café, and he was ecstatic to play on that stage. But he was even more moved by the passionate crowd who chanted his name repeatedly and asked question after question about his career and music. For the audience, it was all above their love of music and McCreery.

“It’s fun to be here and have my first experience [at the Bluebird Cafe] to be with these campers…a memorable day for me,” said McCreery. “I worked with these folks here last year, so when I heard we were doing it again I was thrilled. Awesome crowd and great people that love music, so that’s what it’s all about.”

The ACM Lifting Lives Camp has the dual purpose of studying Williams syndrome while providing music enrichment through performance education. It is a partnership between ACM Lifting Lives and the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Excellence in Development Disabilities. During the week, the campers also spent time with Hunter Hayes, J.T. Hodges, the Swon Brothers, producer/songwriter Ross Copperman, and songwriter Heather Morgan.
