He left the venue filled with fans standing and wanting more, as Easton Corbin packed the house of the Bud Light Variety Free Stage at the Stanislaus County Fair on Friday night, July 20. Approximately 2500 fans endured the heat and took in the sunset sky for the opportunity to hear the country artist perform.
The popular singer did not disappoint, playing his set for close to an hour and a half, to the delight of an audience ranging in age from young tweens to concert veterans.
Corbin and his bandmates were engaging, fun and proved ready for a down home party at the County Fairgrounds in Turlock. The entertainer played a number of his popular hits including his chart toppers, “Roll With It,” “Lovin You is Fun” and “Baby Be My Love Song.”
After warming up the crowd with a few songs, the singer addressed the crowd cuing them on the simplicity of the next song and encouraging participation.
“It’s as simple as Y-U-P,” he said to the Turlock crowd. “Can you help me with that Turlock?”
A resounding “Yup!” was heard back from the crowd.
“You sure are fun. We may do this all night Turlock,” he teased as he treated the audience to his rendition of the Kenny Chesney hit, “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy.”
Proving a connection to the audience and country roots, the Trenton, Florida native shared his appreciation for the County Fair and his connection with 4-H and “growing up country.”
Having a little more fun with the band and the audience, a circa 1980’s rap song began to be strummed by his bass guitar player. Turning the mic back to Corbin, the lead singer engaged with the audience once again asking, “You want to hear my rap song?”
As the audience cheered, Corbin raised his guitar and led right into his first number one hit from 2010: “A Little More Country Than That.”
The crowd pleaser continues his 2018 Tour beyond the Stanislaus County Fair. For additional information visit www.eastoncorbin.com.
