Biography

Easton Corbin is a native of Trenton, Florida. He lived on his grandparents' farm following his parents' divorce, and was introduced to country music-themed television programs such as Hee Haw.[1] After taking guitar lessons from session musician Pee Wee Melton at age fifteen, Corbin joined a band, which won an opening slot at a music festival, followed by opening slots for Janie Fricke and Mel McDaniel.[1]

Corbin later attended University of Florida and earned a business degree, before marrying his wife, Briann, in 2006. They have no children.[1] He and Briann then moved to Nashville, Tennessee, in 2006,[2] where he worked at an Ace Hardware store and performed at writer's nights.[1] A distant cousin, who is a professor of music management, recommended Corbin to contacts in Nashville, Tennessee.[3] Joe Fisher, senior director of A&R at Universal Music Group Nashville, signed Corbin to the Mercury Nashville label in 2009.[3] He released his debut single, "A Little More Country Than That", in July of that same year.[3] Rory Lee Feek of Joey + Rory wrote the song with Don Poythress and Wynn Varble.[3] The label released a four-song digital extended play entitled A Little More Country Than That on August 18, 2009,[2] shortly before the single entered Top 40 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. Corbin's self-titled debut album was released in March 2010, under the production of Carson Chamberlain.[4]
