As the championship actions heats up on the track at Kansas Speedway on Oct. 9, Easton Corbin, one of country music’s hottest new acts, will warm up the crowd for the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway in a pre-race concert.

“I’m looking forward to seeing Easton Corbin’s performance before the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway,” said Kansas Speedway President Patrick Warren. “Easton is one of the most popular up-and-coming artists in country music and I’m sure our fans will enjoy his pre-race concert.”

Corbin, who has been compared to country music icon George Strait, broke onto the country music scene with his debut single, “A Little More Country than That”, which peaked at No. 1 on the country charts for the week ending April 3, 2010. When the single hit No. 1, it made Corbin the first solo male country artist to send a debut single to No. 1 since 2001. Fans can expect to hear Corbin’s first No. 1 single and his second No. 1 single (Oct. 2010) “Roll with It” during the concert.

Corbin, who signed with Mercury Nashville/Universal Music Group Nashville in 2009, is currently touring with Flatts Fest 2011, which features Rascal Flatts, Sara Evans and Justin Moore, after spending 2010 on tour with Brad Paisley.
