I put the 2016 on the title in this one because we’ve already reviewed this one in the past on CML. Are You With Me was on Easton’s previous album that came out back in 2012. The song had an acoustic video that was released and that’s why I did the review back then. But it was never put out as an official single at radio.
Easton apparently liked the song enough to put it on his third album and now it’s his next single. That does happen sometimes with artists. They put a song on an album and then again on a new album. Blake Shelton just did it with a song called Green.
Maybe this one will get a second chance at being a hit for Easton.
Are You With Me – Easton Corbin
It’s hard to peg where Easton’s songs are going to end up on the charts these days. He’s kind of in a phase where he’ll have a big hit and then have one or two that kind of flutter around the 30s and 40s on the chart. I think this one has a chance to be a hit, but I’m not sure.
Back in 2012, I wrote that this one seems like a love song. I think I had a good inkling back then because as I listen to the lyrics today it sounds like a guy is really falling for a girl and he’s ready to jump in fully. He’s maybe not sure if she’s ready for that type of commitment, but he’s really hoping that she’s on board.
I hope this one does well. Easton is one of my favorite artists. He’s a traditionalist.
What do you think this one will do on the charts?
