EASTON CORBIN
8 p.m., Timberwood Amphitheater, Magic Springs. $5-$10.

All right, it's time to put it out there: Easton Corbin is one of the few good guys making country radio better. Like Brad Paisley and George Strait before him, the native Floridian isn't mired in trying to recreate the traditional country of decades past and, even though his eponymous debut is catchy and pop-radio ready, all sounds indicate that he's not interested in aiming for bubblegum country superstardom. Last year saw Corbin explode, slowly. Billboard named him the Top New Country Artist of the year while his debut single, "A Little More Country Than That," was building steady momentum, eventually reaching the top spot of the country charts a year after its premiere. Country music fans already know the name. Folks who steer clear of the sound: You're missing out.
