Easton Corbin took to the Country music scene back in 2009 when he debuted his self-titled album that featured two of his number on e hits “A Little More Country Than That” and “Roll With It.” Fast forward nine years later, and he is rolling into Williamsport, PA to open up his summer long tour.
Things started a little slow that night, fans were all in seats and not very enthusiastic. Things started to take a turn when a young gentleman rushed down to the stage at the end of “Are You With Me” dragging his girlfriend eagerly behind. The crowd suddenly started to cheer as he got done on one knee and proposed. Corbin finished the song out without even noticing what was taking place below him. Then when he saw all the fans yelling and the couple kissing he asked, “Did Ya’ll just get engaged?!” Congrats to the happy couple! From there the crowd start to get a little more pep in their step, as did the band. About half way through the show, one of the backup guitarists took to the mic trying to get Corbin to do a rap for us, joking that he was quite the rapper. They started to play Vanilla Ice’s “Ice Ice Baby.” Unfortunately, Corbin never took to the mic to rap for us. Instead he joked and went into his hit song, “I’m A Little More Country Than That.”
Things really started to take off when they came back out for the encore. Fans were on their feet singing every song for the mash up they played which included Tracy Bird’s “I’m From The Country,” Brook’s n Dunn’s “Play Something Country,” into Toby Keith’s “Should Been A Cowboy,” and topping it of with Kenny Chesney’s “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy.” By this time the crowd was hype for the final song of the night, which was Corbin’s own, “All Over The Road”.
What really impressed us happened after the encore when Corbin immediately started shaking hands and signing autographs for everyone in the first few rows. Be sure to check Easton Corbin all this summer on the rest of his dates or a number of the festivals he his set to appear on, including this years CMA Music Festival!
