It isn’t that we didn’t think Easton Corbin is sexy. We do! We just haven’t seen much of that side of him like we have artists like Luke Bryan, Chris Young and Jake Owen.
But in a previously unreleased video, we do see that side of Easton, and we have two small questions?
Where the heck has this been hiding? And why was it hiding at all?
Easton shared a bit of the concept video from his 2016 single, “Are You With Me” on his Instagram page, and to say that it is sexy is a little bit of an understatement. The country crooner is seen throughout the video sharing some hot embraces under the sheets and passionate kisses in the rain with his female lead.
And, class, who knows what you get when combine that much heat with that much moisture?
You get steam, people. Steam.
“Are You With Me” originally appeared on Easton’s 2012 “All Over the Road” album, and again on his 2015 “About To Get Real” album. According to a 2016 “Billboard” article, Easton’s label, Mercury Records, “Was so convinced of the songs potential that [they] shot a video for it in 2012,” but the video wasn’t released when the song did not become a single during the run of that album.
But then something really unusual happened. A Belgian DJ who went by the name Lost Frequencies used the first four lines of Easton’s vocals in his own version of the song in 2014, and it became a massive electronic dance music (EDM) hit across Europe, even winning song of the year at German’s Echo Awards. It went platinum or multiplatinum in several countries. That was enough to convince Mercury to include the song on Corbin’s next album, and release it as a single in a new version that was slightly sped-up from the original.
All of that is likely why Easton captioned his Sept. 28 Instagram post, “This video changed my life.”
Easton fans will remember that the country star also got a little naughty in the video for 2014’s “Clockwork,” but for the most part, the singer-songwriter’s roles in his music videos have been mostly playful and fun-loving, like his newest toe-tapping and genuinely country single, “A Girl Like You.”
So, super sexy or playfully provocative? Both please! With a side of fiddle.
