Easton Corbin, ‘Lovin’ You Is Fun’ – Song Review

Lovin' You is Fun
Mercury Nashville

Easton Corbin isn’t trying to fix something that’s not broken with the first single from his upcoming sophomore album. ‘Lovin’ You Is Fun’ is a simple song that leans heavy on the easy Texas swing that scored the newcomer back-to-back No. 1 hits in 2010.

Since ‘Roll With It,’ Corbin sort of disappeared for a while, but he hasn’t returned with a new repertoire of tricks or gimmicks meant to quickly separate himself from comparisons to George Strait. He no longer sounds like a facsimile of the country legend, but he still mirrors that style. To be clear, this is not a criticism.

You’ve got a cousin who’s telling you somethin’ that doesn’t have nothin’ to do with the lovin’ that we’re in, baby / I hear she’s sayin’ this game we’re playin’ should be complicated if you want I’ll say it / ‘Cause I think she’s, crazy,” Corbin sings rapid-fire to open the song.

The chorus of this mid-tempo lover is as easy to appreciate as his sweet story. “Love don’t have to be a bunch of drama / A bunch of knock down, drag outs, crying in the rain / It’s all right to keep it light now mama now, don’t you think / We’re having such a good time together and it’s only just begun / My heart’s never smiled so hard / Baby, lovin’ you is fun.”

‘Lovin’ You is Fun’ will sound great through the car stereo speakers on that first abnormally warm day in March or early April. There is a little lesson to be learned from Corbin’s message, but the easy rhythm makes this one that few will take issue with learning again and again.
