Born on April 12, 1982, Easton Corbin is an American country musician who boasts several singles. He has been in the music industry since 2009, so it is no surprise that his debut song, “A Little More Country Than That,” would mark his 10th anniversary. Another track that made him soar to number one was “Roll with It.” In his interview with American Songwriter, he revealed that time flew by because he was just new in the industry and didn’t expect his fans to recognize his efforts despite it being flooded with the likes of Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton. If you’re his biggest fan and are stuck on which of his songs to listen to today, here is a compilation of the ones you should try out, from the worst to the best.
10. This Far from Memphis
Corbin’s song “This Far from Memphis” was released in 2010 in a self-titled album. You can tell by hearing this song that it’s one of the reasons he made it onto the airwaves. Thanks to his producers, Mark D. Sanders and Carson Chamberlain, Corbin wrote and performed this song to portray his pain navigating the music industry as an entrant. Listen to this song if you feel disempowered.
9. Old Lovers Don’t Make Good Friends
They say, “distance makes the heart grow fonder .” However, that isn’t what Corbin portrays in his song “Old Lovers Don’t Make Good Friends. According to Music Apple, you might notice one of the lines in the lyrics saying, “Girl we can pretend, but you know, I’m not gonna want you again, Old lovers don’t make good friends .” While you might find the lyrics a bit depressing, the truth is people who’ve broken up citing irreconcilable differences should stay away from each other. There is no way friendship will salvage what they went through as a couple. Listen to this song if you’ve recently gone through relationship turmoil.
8. All Over the Road
“All Over the Road” was released on December 15, 2020, and it’s one of the songs featured in the album “Best Country of the Decade .” In this song, Easton Corbin is swerving left, right, and center in a bid to turn off a girl who is together in a relationship. It’s clear that the girl has a sexual urge, but she can’t wait until her boyfriend takes her home. This song is dedicated to anyone who feels their lover doesn’t reciprocate their love for them
“Clockwork” is one of Easton Corbin’s singles. It was released in 2014, and it portrays Paul Franklin’s prowess in steel playing, helping to set the mood. Upon listening to this track, you won’t help but marvel at the singer’s talent in country styling. Not only is it fresh, but it’s also contemporary at the same time. If you’re in the mood for partying, hop into this tune.
6. Let Alone You
Have you ever received a phone call from an ex you never expected would ever speak to you? If you’re in this situation, then you will find Corbin’s “Let Alone You” relatable. In this song, Corbin seems to be lamenting yet happy at the same time because such a thing creates mixed reactions. You might be going through a trying situation figuring how your life might be without someone you once shared strong emotions with, but it only takes time before they realize you were better off cutting them out.
5. Loving You Is Fun
Nothing beats the feeling of someone loving you genuinely. It’s not every day that you find yourself in a situation whereby you feel your lover is head over heels in love with you. The song “Loving You Is Fun” was performed by Easton in 2012, and it’s been one of the many singles he’s proven to be a one-hit-wonder. Don’t beat yourself trying to fight for a love that isn’t worth reciprocation. This song suits you if you have a lover who also sums up as a best friend
4. Roll With It
This song is Easton’s way of expressing his emotions based on his life experiences. The lyrics not only set your emotions on all highs but also makes you wish you were in his shoes. The track is about a man going to the beach, but later someone else grabs his radio onto the track. It is no wonder the artist’s second straight song made it to the Country Songs chart. Listen to this song before heading out on vacation or enjoying yourself at your local joint
3. Are You with Me?
“Are You with Me” is a hit single from Corbin that he released in 2012 in his album “About to Get Real.” Interestingly, a Belgian DJ turned it into a remix, transforming it into a global hit. It explains why it made major billboards in Poland, Germany, Europe, and other countries. If you feel emotionally damaged, this is your song.
2. Babe Be My Love Song
If Easton is good at anything, that includes expressing love. From his lyrics in “Babe Be My Love Song,” you can tell that. The best part about this song is that Jim Collins and Brett James made sure it peaked at number 3. Listen to this song if you are head over heels in love with someone special.
1. A Little More Country Than That
Our list can never be complete unless “A Little More Country Than That” tops it. Corbin released this song in the late summer of 2009 when he was fresh in the industry. By April 2010, the track had reached the Country Songs chart’s apex. It is no surprise that Joey+Rory ranked it the number one hit. If that’s where Rory Lee Feek positioned it, who are we to think otherwise?
Overall, Easton has released beautiful songs that express different and relatable ideas. While we might have our biased opinion of which songs are the best, we hope you will listen to all of them and come up with your greatest pick.
