Easton Corbin Talks New Music, Favorite Song, Drinking [Video]
You asked and Easton Corbin answered. Before he hit the stage at the UB Stadium on Saturday, he took seven questions from fans on Twitter!
Easton Corbin’s newest album will have some “really traditional country” sounds.
The Roll With It performer released his first studio album in 2008 with his second record, All Over the Road, hitting stores in 2012 and featuring the album’s title single. He was named the Breakthrough Artist of the Year at the American Country Awards in 2010 and he hasn’t stopped coming up with new sounds.
“Clockwork was a little different than what people expected from me but it’s still that country vein. I mean you’re gonna have stuff like Clockwork on there, but I still have that traditional country sound on there. It’s some really traditional country sound, which I love.”
Clockwork was the first single released from Easton’s upcoming third studio album and hit the air in January of this year. It peaked at number 32 on Country Airplay chart. Also on the record, which will be released later this year, is the single Baby Be My Love Song.
Despite focusing on new music, the 32-year-old’s past work retains a special place for the performer.
“A Little More Country Than That,” Easton identified his favorite song to perform. “You know it brought me here, and it was my first number one record so that’s a pretty good one.”
Despite touring at a slew of bars and festivals, and kicking off the Tailgate Concert series for the Buffalo Bulls, the singer is still working on developing a taste for beer.
“I never drank beer a whole lot but I’ve started kind of acquiring the taste a little bit for it, and you know, Bud Light’s hard to beat."
“I never drank beer a whole lot but I’ve started kind of acquiring the taste a little bit for it, and you know, Bud Light’s hard to beat,” he explained his party drink of choice, implying that Buffalo was his party city of choice – not that there was any pressure to add a ‘Go Bulls’ to the interview with a parking lot full of Buffalonians.
Easton also talked about passing time on the road, the weirdest thing to happen to him touring, his heroes and his greatest celeb encounter – check out the entire interview in the video above!
