Ronny Corbin is a singer and songwriter from Texas. An artist that is a talented, humble and prolific individual. Says Ronny, “Going to gigs with my dad, who played lead guitar for country great Gene Watson, started it all for me. That exposure, along with learning to play, write and sing gave me a great sense of adventure. I have always been motivated by the journey of life and writing the songs that tell the stories.”
By age 18, Ronny had seen all of Texas so he hit the road with his guitar, a fishing rod, 150 bucks and an old red truck. Continues Ronny, “I made it all the way to Alaska, talked and sang my way into a job guiding fishing trips. Since we didn’t have TV or even a radio out in the bush, we would fish during the day and play live music for our clients every night. I spent 13 years fishing, flying and playing live music at lodges and bars.”
It was in Alaska where Ronny first took to the skies. “Airplanes are as common as cars are everywhere else. After all that time in “The Bush” I traded away the floatplanes for airliners. I’ve been furloughed 9 times, twice by United Airlines. The only stable thing I’ve ever been a part of is music,” states Corbin.
It was this love of music and the true need to share a gift that took Corbin into the music studio to record the album, “ New Way To Fly”. The CD was recorded at BGM network in San Antonio. Ronny’s brother Daryl was record producer on the project and the music veteran Bill Green musical engineer. (Bill has also worked with artists like Willie Nelson, Toby Keith, Faith Hill and others.)
Says Ronny, “Writing music and performing in a live band are my passion and are a full time commitment. For me, music is about the journey of life and all its stories. Some precious and some tragic. I am committed to making my recorded music and my live musical presentations grow with the times while keeping a sense of responsibility and a sense of humor. Today our journeys have brought us together, and for that I am truly grateful. Thank you so much for taking time to listen to the music and visit my page”.
