Easton Corbin and The Band Perry anchored a fun-filled day at Country Thunder during the second of four days in the country mega-festival in Florence.

Corbin, who is attending Country Thunder for the first time in his musical career, is no stranger to Arizona, frequently playing shows there as he did at the Marana Health Center last year.

Much like that show, Corbin’s fun-loving personality was evident on stage as he performed hits like “Loving You is Fun,” and “All Over the Road,” before closing out his performance with his latest single, “Clockwork.”

With so many hits on his musical resume, Corbin, who caught up with The Explorer before Country Thunder, said when it comes to picking a favorite song of his, he has to go back to his roots.

“If I had to pick one, I’d pick the song that got me here, and that’s “A Little More Country Than That,” said Corbin. “That’s the one that started all this.”

Corbin’s on-stage energy was not only infectious to the crowd of thousands, but it also carried over to Friday night’s headliner, The Band Perry, who closed out the evening with their 90-minute time slot.

The acoustically blessed trio has played at Country Thunder in years past, and this year will no doubt give fans a reason to hope the group comes continues to return in years to come.

The group put on a high-energy performance that not only included their hit singles like “If I Die Young,” “Better Take Two,” “You Lie,” and “Done,” but also brought a violin version of The National Anthem that sent the crowd into a frenzy.

Also playing during day two of the festival were Mary Hoffman, Cassadee Pope, and Sawyer Brown.
