Content[edit]

When asked about the song Corbin stated, “I’m very, VERY excited to have new music out now for my fans. I’m excited especially to release a song like ‘Clockwork...’‘Clockwork’ is a good reflection of my country roots and it shows that I’m growing as an artist. I think when my fans hear this song they will get a good taste of how my upcoming album is going to be.”[1][2]

Critical reception[edit]

Matt Bjorke of 'Roughstock' rated Clockwork 3.5 stars.[3] He states, "as far as lead singles from upcoming albums go, “Clockwork” is the kind of song which SHOULD do well at radio. It has the contemporary melody —there’s even audible steel guitar fills — and a solid vocal from Easton Corbin."
