Get ready! Easton Corbin plans to “Turn Up” in Milbank for just one concert on Saturday, July 29, during 2023 Farley Fest. The country concert is part of the annual two-day event sponsored by the Milbank Area Chamber of Commerce (MACC). Tickets go on sale May 2.
MACC’s executive director, Jamie Henderson, says “Easton has been performing for more than a decade on some of the world’s biggest stages, and we are thrilled to be bringing him to Farley Fest. With multiple hit singles and country music accolades, he will be sure to put on a dynamic show.”
The Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts (SMCPA) says, “His distinctive baritone has been gracing airwaves for the past decade as his chart-topping debut single “A Little More Country Than That” established Corbin as a mainstay on the country charts.”
The center also notes, “Billboard’s 2010 Top New Country Artist would go on to garner another No. 1 hit with the feel-good tune “Roll With It” as well as seven top-10 singles, further distinguishing himself from other male vocalists as a tried-and-true country traditionalist who weaves timeless story songs together while tipping his hat to the classic country artists who have come before him.”
“That’s what I love and that’s what I do,” Corbin told SMCPA. “For me, it’s about keeping one foot in the traditional and one foot in the modern and marrying those two. I’m a country singer: That’s one of the things that I take pride in. I try to hone that craft and try to represent that.”
Country Jam USA says, “Though 2020 marked the 10th anniversary of “A Little More Country Than That” achieving No. 1 status, Corbin showed no signs of slowing down. With the release of his infectious single “Turn Up,” he launched a year of new releases, including the tune “Didn’t Miss A Beat,” which he performed on NBC’s TODAY show. Corbin’s highly anticipated EP of the same title included a wide array of songs like “Old Lovers Don’t Make Good Friends” and “Back to Me.””
“As he continues on with this new chapter as an independent artist, Corbin says, ‘”A Little More Country Than That” still reflects who I am as an artist and where I see my career going. That’s really how I grew up,'” he says of his career-defining song in the same interview with Country Jam USA.
Multiple sources say, “The Florida native was surrounded by music as a child. A Merle Haggard or Hank Williams record was always being spun at his grandparents’ house and a guitar was often lying around begging to be played. ‘My earliest memories are of me as a kid with a guitar, singing and playing along with the radio,’ Corbin recalls. ‘I knew from an early age I wanted to be a country singer.’”
This year’s Farley Fest with a full lineup of events is set for Friday and Saturday, July 28-29, at Lake Farley Park in Milbank.
