All Over the Road

Album: All Over the Road (2012)
Charted: 51
  • Corbin opens his second studio album with the title track, in which he sings about a girl who has him so excited he can hardly drive. "I named the record All Over The World because first of all, it's a fun song, and that is what I want this record to be about," he explained. "With that said, we are all over the road everywhere. We're trying to get to as many people as possible."
  • Recalling his initial attraction to the Carson Chamberlain, Ashley Gorley and Wade Kirby penned song, Corbin told The Boot: "It's uptempo, it's fun, and it makes you want to sing along. It makes you feel good. I think that's important."
  • Directed by Roman White, the song's music video finds Corbin playing a store clerk who gets robbed by a beautiful brunette and ends taking part in a crime spree and driving the getaway car. "I did have fun making the 'All Over the Road' video," said Corbin. "It was definitely different from what this song, probably the stereotypical video you would think, you know, which would be, you know, riding down the road in a truck with a girl. And I think that's what we went for is something to be a little bit different. And it's totally unexpected! It's got cops... it's got a car chase... hot girl... money... guns, I mean... it's fun!"
  • Corbin told Roughstock regarding the song's meaning: "When people hear the title 'All Over the Road,' they probably think there's a drink involved in there somewhere. Basically it's a song about being with that special person or someone you like and being high off that ... living off that experience. It's a love song. A feel good, upbeat song, and I think a great summer song."
