Easton Corbin Debuts At #1
Easton Corbin’s new studio album, About To Get Real, debuted at Number One on the Billboard country albums chart this week with 20,447 units sold during the first week of release. About To Get Real features the Top Five hit “Baby Be My Love Song.”
Easton says that About To Get Real is the perfect blend of his true love, traditional country music, and today’s more contemporary sound.
“I want people to take away from my music that it’s authentic and it’s real and it comes from my heart. It’s who I am. I feel like that the country music audience out there, their B.S. meter is pretty sensitive a lot of times, and I think deep down they really know if an artist is real. And I think to have longevity, you’ve got to be yourself and you’ve got to stay true to what you do. And again, I think that’s where it comes in, I think, where there’s a balance between keeping that fresh, modern sound — but also for me, I love traditional country music because that’s what I do, that’s what I grew up on, and that’s who I am — and I think it’s very important to balance that with traditional sounds.”
Easton co-wrote three tracks on About To Get Real and once again teamed with producer Carson Chamberlain for the project.
