Mercury Nashville recording artist Easton Corbin has received three nominations from the Academy of Country Music Awards  — Top New Solo Vocalist as well as Single and Song of the Year for his debut No. 1 hit, “A Little More Country Than That.”

“The Academy of Country Music Awards are iconic because they are such an institution,” Easton says. “I’ve watched the ACMs since I was a kid. It’s such an honor to be part of that. The nominations are confirmation from the people that you work with, and also the fans, because the new artist category is fan-voted.”
“This is a dream come true,” he says. “This is something I’ve wanted all my life. To be able to do this for a living and have people like it, I couldn’t ask for any better. I am so blessed.”
“I always like to thank everybody and God for giving me this opportunity, and for everybody accepting my music. I’ve had a lot of great people that I’ve worked with who gave me a chance. Without that chance, I wouldn’t be here. And of course I’d like to thank the fans.”
These are Easton’s first ACM nominations, but they boost his overall country music award nominations total to 13 in the last six months.
While the Top New Solo Vocalist nominations had been previously announced, he learned about the other two nominations this morning while driving to Music Row to listen to songs for his second album, which is expected later this year.
“I would say for any artist, being nominated for anything is an honor, but especially being a new artist with a total of 13, and especially these three, what else can you ask for?” he says. “As they say, just being nominated is an honor, whether you win anything or not.”
He won awards in every breakthrough artist category – Artist of the Year: Breakthrough Artist, as well as Single of the Year: Breakthrough Artist and Music Video: Breakthrough Artist for “A Little More Country Than That” – in December at the American Country Awards, where he received seven nominations.
He received nominations for Best New Artist, and Single and Song of the Year for “A Little More Country Than That” at November’s Country Music Association Awards.
“’At this point in my career, ‘A Little More Country Than That’ has been a career song for me,” he says of the hit written by Rory Feek, Don Poythress and Wynn Varble. “I feel like it’s something I will always be recognized for because it did so well.”
“It’s how I grew up and the way of life I lived,” says Easton, who grew up in rural Gilchrist County, Florida, where he was a member of the FFA and 4-H and showed cattle at the local livestock fair. “Since that song did so well for me, it’s definitely a defining song for my career. Even though my career hasn’t been that long, it is a career!”
The accolades are continuing to roll in for Easton, who is the first country male artist in 17 years to have his first two consecutive singles reach No. 1.
Billboard named Mercury Nashville artist Easton Corbin as the Top New Country Artist of 2010 and his second No. 1, “Roll With It,” the No. 6 Hot Country Song of the Year, while “A Little More Country Than That” was ranked No. 19. His album was also named Country Breakthrough Album of the Year by iTunes Rewind.
Earlier this week, the Nashville Scene’s 11th annual Country Music Critics’ Poll named Easton the Best New Act of 2010 and included his self-titled album in its Best Albums list, ranking it at No. 19. “A Little More Country Than That” was ranked No. 11 on its Best Singles list.
“I Can’t Love You Back,” is his current single. Easton, who toured in 2010 with Brad Paisley, will join tours of Blake Shelton and Rascal Flatts throughout 2011.
