Easton Corbin delivers a mix of romance, twang and drum-machined beats in his new single “A Girl Like You,” the first taste of his upcoming and currently unannounced fourth album. Listen to the track above.
Written by Ashley Gorley, Jesse Frasure and Rhett Akins, Corbin pairs his classically understated vocals with a playful, chicken-picked guitar hook and a digitized, shuffling beat in the new track, co-produced by Gorley with Wade Kirby. The warm-and-fuzzy tune is all about falling head over heels for the nameless country girl of many a recent Nashville hit, while also highlighting the over-abundance of such songs with lyrics like “I’ve heard ’em all, at least a time or two / Ain’t none about a girl like you.”
Corbin started his career off in the fast lane, debuting with back-to-back Number Ones in “A Little More Country Than That” and “Roll With It,” then scored three more Top 10s through 2014. With “A Girl Like You,” he’ll be looking to get back on that track after his last two singles fizzled before cracking country radio’s Top 30. His previous album, About to Get Real, debuted at Number One.
Corbin, who spent most of 2016 on the road with Carrie Underwood’s Storyteller Tour, will start his spring tour schedule off at Country Jam Music Festival in Naples, Florida, on January 28th.
