Congratulations to country newcomer [lastfm]Easton Corbin[/lastfm] who scores his first #1 hit with his debut single, “Little More Country Than That.”
This marks a pretty big feat since a new solo male act hasn’t taken his debut single to the top of the charts since [lastfm]Dierks Bentley’s [/lastfm]”What Was I Thinkin’” in 2003. The song knocks [lastfm]Blake Shelton’s [/lastfm]”Hillbilly Bone” from the top spot on both the Mediabase and Billboard Country Singles charts.
[lastfm]Rory Feek [/lastfm]of the duo [lastfm]Joey + Rory [/lastfm]is among several co-writers on “Little More Country Than That.” He reacts, “What a blessing to wake up in the midst of all this and find out a song that you and two of your buddies wrote is at the top of the charts! “‘Little More Country’s’ a song that speaks about Joey and I, just as much as it does about Easton, and we’ve been proudly singing it every night in our show.” Corbin will make his national television debut April 1 when he performs his new #1 on NBC’s Late Night with [lastfm]Jimmy Fallon[/lastfm].
