July 13th might just be a date Easton Corbin and his team will never forget. He celebrated his first-ever double number one singles in the Nashville BMI offices yesterday. Corbin’s first two singles “I’m A Little More Country Than That” and “Roll With It” both went number one on the Billboard charts for the first time in 17 years for a solo male country artist. The last artist to pull off this feat was Clay Walker in 1994 with “What’s It To You” and “Live Until I Die.”
“It feels great and one of the most gratifying feelings is having the fans singing along with you. It’s one of those deals where you put out a record, and as your music grows, more people get familiar with it and more and more people sing along with it and that’s what it’s about.” – Easton Corbin to Countryweekly.com
Around 100 industry guests attended the party last night in Corbin’s honor. He accepted plaques from BMI, the Country Music Association (CMA), and his label Universal Music Group. The songwriters were among the guests at the celebration.
