Easton Corbin is a native of Trenton, Florida. He lived on his grandparents' farm following his parents' divorce, and was introduced to country music-themed television programs such as Hee Haw. After taking guitar lessons from session musician Pee Wee Melton at age fifteen, Corbin joined a band, which won an opening slot at a music festival, followed by opening slots for Janie Fricke and Mel McDaniel.
Corbin later attended University of Florida and earned a business degree, before marrying his wife, Brinn, in 2006. He and Brinn then moved to Nashville, Tennessee in 2006, where he worked at an Ace Hardware store and performed at writer's nights. A distant cousin who is a professor of music management, recommended Corbin to contacts in Nashville, Tennessee. Joe Fisher, senior director of A&R at Universal Music Group Nashville, signed Corbin to the Mercury Nashville label in 2009. He released his debut single, "A Little More Country Than That", in July of that same year. Rory Lee Feek of Joey + Rory wrote the song with Don Poythress and Wynn Varble. The label released a four-song digital extended play entitled A Little More Country Than That on August 18, 2009, shortly before the single entered Top 40 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts.
