Given that background, it shouldn't come as a great surprise that his eponymous debut album finds him singing rugged yet sensitive country; it's music that you could imagine Aidan singing as he builds furniture for Carrie on Sex & The City. But it's not so much that Corbett is capitalizing on his onscreen persona, it's that his strengths as an actor are his strengths as a musician: he comes across as a thoroughly likeable, normal guy, the kind of man that women fall for, the kind of man other men would have a beer with. Those charms translate as successfully on John Corbett as they do onscreen. Perhaps Corbett doesn't have the most distinctive voice, but it's sincere and has just the right amount of twang, and he sounds comfortable and assured, yet never cocky. It fits the country music that he's singing, which is straight-ahead and tuneful, relaxed and friendly. This surely isn't hardcore country, yet it proudly puts dobros, harmonicas, and twangy Telecasters on display, which all keep John Corbett far away from the realm of pop music, even when it has more than its fair share of hooky, memorable tunes. But what makes this a winning debut is that it feels natural and genuine, as if Corbett isn't attempting to parlay his success as an actor into a music career, he's just simply making the music he wants to make. Of course, that sense of naturalism made him appealing as an actor and it makes him appealing as a singer, especially for those who already are fans. But the best thing that can be said about John Corbett is that this laid-back, rootsy record can be easily enjoyed by country fans who aren't fans of Corbett the actor, or even by listeners who aren't even aware that he is an actor, and that' s a very tricky thing for an actor launching a singing career to pull off. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Pretty Good Stuff!

I like John's acting alot(especially Northern Exposure and of course Sex in the City) but I like his music too! Not too mello with some good rock n roll!! Saw him on CMT and was surprised his music doesn't strike me as 'country'.

Perfect choice for those wanting something different

I first heard "Good to go" on a CMT-country preview on V-Cast (from Verizon Wireless). I liked the song so much that I decided to order the CD. I really enjoy every song, with my favorite being "Cash". Corbett does an excellent job on this CD, none of the songs are "twangy" and all seem to have a folk/southern inspiration. This CD is an excellent choice for those wanting something more than the normal "Pop-Country" heard on the radio everyday.

John Corbett

I'm not a country and western fan, but I had seen John Corbett on Emeril live and like the couple of songs he sang on the show. I had to listen to the complete CD a couple of times before I got the feel of it. Now I really enjoy it and have shared it with others. For you old Elton John and Bernie Taupin fans, he has written one of the songs on the CD. I would recommend it to all that just simply enjoy music.

Multitalented artist

Not only can Corbett act, but, he can sing too. I couldn't believe the range of emotion Corbett shows on the album. It's a good mix of honkytonk, ballads, and pure undistilled emotion. With a little better self promotion John Corbett could be up there with the likes of Trace Adkins and Randy Travis.

John Corbett- John Corbett

I love this CD---John Corbett has a great voice, and the music is southern-type rock...I think the lyrics are great and I'm absolutely pleased with this CD in every aspect.
