"All Over the Road" is a song recorded by American country music artist Easton Corbin. It was released in January 2013 as the second single and title track from Corbin's album All Over the Road. The song was written by Carson Chamberlain, Ashley Gorley and Wade Kirby.

Content[edit]

The song is about a male who is pulled over by a police officer for reckless driving. The narrator claims that his driving is not due to alcohol intoxication, but rather because of the actions of his lover, who is showing affection to him.

Critical reception[edit]

Ben Foster of Country Universe gave the song an A grade. He writes that this song, "soars with an airy, infectious melody, and a delightful fiddle and steel-friendly arrangement recalling the country music of the nineties."[1] He goes on to say that, "[Corbin's] inviting vocal delivery coasts along on the catchy melody with the same breezy abandon that made “Roll with It” so lovable." He finishes by saying that, "The song hits all the right stops to create the perfect feel-good jam, with the cheeky-sounding guitar licks and the “Little bit o’ left, little bit o’ right” hook almost seeming to mimic the movements of the swerving vehicle."[1]

Taste of County editor Billy Dukes rated the song 4.5 stars out of 5. Dukes states, "The production is as clean as reliably country as ever. Guitar licks snap from the stereo as he breezes through his vocals with perceived effortlessness." and says that "Corbin is quickly becoming one of the more dependable radio artists, but songs like this will boost his concert ticket and CD sales. ‘All Over the Road’ is his best single to date, one that promises to leave fans buzzing like they did when he first released ‘A Little More Country Than That’ three years ago."[2]
