Hot young artist Easton Corbin and Muve Music have teamed up to give fans a track by track analysis of the country singer's new album, All Over The Road.

In this exclusive interview, the country star gives his fans the story behind their favorite Easton Corbin tracks like: "Lovin' You Is Fun," "A Thing For You," "Dance Real Slow," "Only A Girl," and "I Think Of You."

Not only is Corbin a talented musician - it seems like the country cutie is also a psychic. Regarding "Lovin' You Is Fun," Corbin claims, "When I first heard this song, it really felt good. It felt like a hit song to me." He was right - the song has been a chart-topper since it's release.

Going on about other songs on his sophomore album, Corbin claims he immediately liked the idea of "A Thing For You." "I think one of the great things about this song is it just takes things that are simple…and really makes a statement," he says.

A love song with changing tempos, "Dance Real Slow" sounds like a classic country song. "These days and times, it's so fast out there. [This song] is just about slowing down and having that time with each other," Corbin shares about the romantic tune.

Frustrated by a long day of searching for his next track, Corbin politely demanded his co-writer to give him a good song. As soon as they cranked up "Only A Girl," Corbin knew it would be one for the album.

Admitting "I Think Of You" was a stretch for him, Corbin says, "The song just really spoke to me. It can mean different things for different people, and that's what I thought was really special."

Easton Corbin is also this month's Muve First artist, a prestigious monthly distinction given to a hot artist. As part of the partnership, Muve Music subscribers can download Corbin's complete commentary album on the service.

Country music legend Charlie Daniels and The Charlie Daniels Band will have a starring role in ESPN’s Monday Night Football “open” tonight when Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos travel to Atlanta to face Matt Ryan and the Falcons (Sept. 17, 8:30 p.m. ET).
 
The open will feature Daniels’ 1979 hit song The Devil Went Down to Georgia.
 
Originally written as a narrative about the Devil, who comes to Georgia to procure souls, Daniels recorded new lyrics for the song this week at Twin Pines Studio in Mt. Juliet, Tenn., that highlight the MNF matchup and both teams’ star quarterbacks.
 
Said Daniels: “I’ve been watching Monday Night Football since it started and to be a part of it kind of makes me feel proud. I had to watch the lyrics real close because I’ve done those same Devil Went Down To Georgia lyrics for 33 years.”
 
The original version of the song, released by Epic Records, spent 14 weeks on the Hot Country Singles charts in 1979, peaking at No. 1.
 
“We’re excited to be in Atlanta this week for Peyton Manning and the Broncos’ first road game of the season, and to kick off the telecast with Charlie Daniels’ iconic song seemed like a perfect fit,” said ESPN’s MNF producer Jay Rothman.
 
“This is one of the fun things about having a new themed open each week. It gives us a blank canvas to be creative and incorporate athletes, celebrities, musicians and others depending on the storylines of the game. We hope fans like it.”
