Has it really been about three years since Easton Corbin had a hit?
It seemed like Easton was a can’t miss kid in country music back in 2010. Right out of the gate he had two number one songs. They were catchy. They were traditional. No one was going to say that Easton was a modern country artist.
But along the way there have been some interesting single choices. I know it’s easy to look back in hindsight, but there were some good songs on his first couple albums that could have been hits.
But hey…it’s time to move forward and Easton has a great new single.
A Girl Like You – Easton Corbin
Now this one should be a top five hit. It has a great melody. There are plenty of funky little riffs and twang that will have listeners bobbing along in the car and at those summer bonfires.
This type of song is right in the Easton Corbin pocket. He’s always had a way of singing a groovy kind of mid-tempo song that is just fun and not meant to be taken too seriously.
A good comparison for this one might be A Guy With A Girl that Blake Shelton just took to number one on the radio charts. Blake and Easton are similar in a lot of ways. They’re country at heart. They appreciate the history of country music while still adding a modern sound to their own music.
It’ll be great to have Easton back on the radio charts with this one.
