All over the road: Easton Corbin discusses new tour and single

The country star is coming to Kuss next week.

Easton Corbin spent more than a decade honing his craft, so he’s no overnight success. However it sure seemed like it in 2009 when his self-titled debut album generated two No. 1 country singles, “A Little More Country Than That” and “Roll With It.”

The singer hopes to continue his chart-topping ways with his new single, “All Over the Road,” which is the title track from his sophomore album and the follow-up to lead single “Lovin’ You Is Fun,” which recently reached No. 5 on Billboard’s country singles chart.

Corbin performs at Kuss Auditorium in Springfield on Jan. 18. The opener will be Wyatt McCubbin, a 17-year-old from South Charleston who recently moved to Nashville.

Corbin was home in Nashville recently when he submitted to a brief Q&A.

Q: What’s going on today?

A: “We’re rehearsing and all that good stuff. We’re going to get everything as good as can be and then get back out there.”

Q: Anything different on this leg of the tour?

A: “We’re going to try to play as much new music as possible. We’ve added a few more new songs off the new record that people haven’t heard live and maybe a few covers. There’s a lot of excitement with the new single ‘All Over the Road’ coming out Jan. 14. That’s going to be a big one.”

Q: What are three things you can’t live without on the road?

A: “I like my good old bus; that’s always nice. That’s hard to live without. I like a guitar on my bus, for sure, so if I get any ideas I can kind of get up there and strum. It’s always good to have movies in case you get bored. I like a lot of Civil War stuff, Westerns and things like that.”

Q: Carson Chamberlain produced both of your albums. What makes him a good studio partner?

A: “He really understands what I do. We’re good friends. Most importantly he understands my music and helps me shape it the way I like and that works for me.”

Q: What’s next after this tour ends in March?

A: “I’m not sure. We’ll probably get a few minutes there to breathe, but we’re going to get right back out. We’re headlining our own tour now, and then in the summer we’ll be out with Blake Shelton. We toured with him before, so that will be good.”
