About to Get Real

Album: About to Get Real (2015)
  • Easton Corbin named his third studio album after this Jeremy Stover, Ben Hayslip and Rhett Akins penned song. He explained: "I think that just sounded great as a title track to a record, because it's about, as an artist, you grow and within that growth process, you do your best to make it current and young, but also with that you stay true to your roots and you have to be real about that. For me, it's keeping that traditional country element in my songs, but also keeping it fresh. It's a balance, and I think we've done that well with this record."
  • Corbin told Billboard magazine that it was a certain country legend that came to mind when he first heard this tune. "That song felt like a modern day Conway Twitty song," he said. "When I heard it for the first time, it took me back in time to some of his biggest hits. It's a great song."
