In what will surely be one of the more anticipated albums to hit shelves, Easton Corbin will release his second studio album on September 18 via Mercury Records. The record is called ‘All Over The Road,’ and includes the lead single, “Lovin’ You Is Fun,” which has been running up the charts since its release to radio. Written by Bob DiPiro and Jim Beavers and produced by Carson Chamberlain, the single is sure to be an instant hit, which has become a bit of a trend for Easton.
The album will be Corbin’s sophomore effort, and he seems to be just as excited for its release as his fans have been ever since hearing the news.

Easton first made his mark on country music with the release of his self-titled debut album in 2010. The record featured his two #1 singles, “A Little More Country Than That” and “Roll With It.” He was one of the biggest surprise hit-makers in recent years with those two songs, blending his modern appearance with his traditional sound. Country music fans of all ages and preferences couldn’t get enough of his music, and the ladies certainly haven’t complained about what they see when they look up at him on the stage.
In this day & age of country music, artists like Easton Corbin have become utterly rare. It seems as though the only artists adopting country western as a strong influence are those who have been established in the industry for years or are older in years. Corbin, citing the likes of Keith Whitley, George Jones and Merle Haggard as his most influential artists, brings a fresh perspective to traditional country music…something the genre has been longing for to reinvigorate the roots of the genre.
We have not heard the new album in its entirety, so we shouldn’t speculate on anything, but based on what we have heard and what we do know, ‘All Over The Road’ will follow the same suit as when we were introduced to Easton back in 2010. Songs like the title track, as well as “Tulsa Texas” and “A Thing For You,” showcase the Gilchrist County, Florida native in his prime, reveling in the homegrown roots of country music.
Easton will be on the road in support his upcoming album on Brad Paisley’s “Virtual Reality” Tour. For latest news, updates, and tour dates, log on to his official website at http://www.eastoncorbin.com
