Country chart-topper Easton Corbin recently delivered his much-anticipated full-length album, Let’s Do Country Right, via Stone Country Records on Friday, January 20. Fans can stream the project here!

Produced by Wade Kirby and Derek George, Let’s Do Country Right encompasses Easton’s traditional country sound paired with his signature down-home lyrics. The 14-track project includes the platinum selling singer-songwriter’s latest loved-up track, “Marry That Girl,” that’s earned its spot as a fan favorite with its already more than 40 million collective streams to date.

Corbin delivers swoon-worthy lyrics in the track, singing, “I’m gonna change her name, but she don’t know it yet / She’s what I’ve been praying someday God would send / I ain’t never been the same since we first met / I’m gonna marry that girl.”

“I’m so excited to have a full-length studio album coming out with Stone Country Records. After I signed with them last year, we immediately got to work on this project,” shared Corbin of the project. “What I love most about this record is that I had a chance to get back to my roots and make the true traditional country music that made me want to do this for a living. I’m really looking forward to hearing what the fans think and can’t wait to have them singing along to these new songs on the road.”

The Florida-native had the help of some of country music’s most esteemed songwriters to bring the new project to life, including Rhett Akins, Ashley Gorley, Dallas Davidson, Adam Craig, Rodney Clawson, Shane Minor and more. While he delivers hits with tracks “Somebody’s Gotta Be Country,” “Hey Merle” and “I Can’t Decide,” Corbin admits that “In It,” an outside cut from the album, is his, “favorite new song to sing.”

The album also finds Corbin paying tribute to one of his musical heroes, Merle Haggard, with the tune aptly titled “Hey Merle.”

“If you ask anyone, they’ll tell you that Merle Haggard is one of my biggest influences. I wouldn’t be who I am without some of our legends like Merle and Hank Williams,” Corbin previously shared in a press release.

Let’s Do Country Right kicks off 2023 on a strong note for the “A Little More Country” singer after a highly successful 2022.

Last year, the hitmaker signed with Stone Country Records, a label venture spearheaded by Benny Brown, Paul Brown and Jason Sellers where he immediately got to work on the album. Corbin reached his ultimate goal that he had in mind: to stay true to country music.
