This is a bit of a surprise. It’s a nice surprise, but still a little different. Easton Corbin has released a new video. The song featured is off Easton’s just released sophomore album, All Over The Road. The first single is still racing up the charts and is closing in on the top five. I’m sure it’s going to at least make it there and I wouldn’t be surprised to see it get to number one.
Artists and their marketing teams don’t usually stray too far from the script when it comes to releasing music, but this could be a good move. The video already has a lot of views and it shows another side of Easton. Check out this new track, Are You With Me.
Are You With Me – Easton Corbin
It’s probably no secret at this point that Easton Corbin is one of my favorite artists these days. Along with Jason Aldean and Chris Young I think they’re doing things that are pretty cool. Easton and Chris are on the traditional side of country and I really like that. Easton is especially bringing back some Alan Jackson-type country and while Alan is struggling on the edges of the top 30 these days it’s nice to have a voice of traditional country in the mix.
Speaking of traditional country where the hell is George Strait?
Anyway, back to Are You With Me.
It sounds like this track is a long song. Easton plays the guy in the song that’s looking for commitment from his girl. He’s looking to make some changes and he wants to know that she’s on board with him for the long-term.
This track is pretty cool. It’s not slick or over-produced. You just have Easton’s voice and a few instruments. There isn’t much here for the song and I think that’s where the beauty comes from. All you get when you’re listening is the emotion in the vocals and in the story. It’s a great track and it’s really cool that Easton and his team decided to make this intimate video for it.
