Country Thunder

Easton Corbin Keeps It Simple and Stays Effective

Country music is all about the storyline, and the path of least resistance, lyrically speaking, often makes for the best tales-turned-songs. Easton Corbin, the Floridian behind hits like "All Over The Road" and "A Little More Country Than That," is a man familiar with this model, using it to his and his fans' advantages since his debut in 2010.

While he still considers himself a newcomer, he speaks with the concise precision of a weathered professional -- after all, Corbin has moved over 2 million singles in four years. While this year is his first time to Country Thunder, he's a road dog that works best on a large stage setting, putting his aw-shucks charm and melodic sensibilities on display on a grand scale. We spoke to Corbin ahead of his set at Country Thunder this Friday.
