The highlight of Texarkana's "Railfest" is of course the Saturday night concert, and this year we are proud to welcome Townsquare Media's headliner for the event... EASTON CORBIN.

We had a chance to get together with Easton Corbin this afternoon in Downtown Texarkana as our radio station staff was pitching in to get the main stage together, I sat down with Easton to shoot the breeze in the shade about what I thought would be music and upcoming projects... something easy.

Little did I know that it was going to turn into a geopolitical discussion with a wide range of topics. I was not prepared. I don't even think for sure I have an opinion of whether or not a good deal of the dissatisfaction of people from the middle east is due to the lack of the proper distribution of wealth in oil rich countries... Who knew that Easton Corbin was so dang smart about topics on the world stage?

As quickly as I could I changed the subject to Bow Hunting, then fishing, and of course the big show tonight in Texarkana. Easton Corbin and band will take the stage right around 8:00 p.m. in downtown Texarkana. Gates open at 6:00 p.m. for the show and tickets will be available at the entrance on Wood and Broad Streets. (BRING LAWN CHAIRS.)

Easton's current album is titled "All Over the Road"... Here's the video of the title track.
