" I wanted to put a record together in 2009 but it came and went and left" says Corbett.
His sophomore album "Leaving Nothin Behind" is finally available.
Different he says that his 2006 self titled debut, "It's a little more ameicana than last one which is straight country."
But the biggest difference is his confidence. "The first time around hadn't even sang concerts in front of people. Since then I've done 600 shows and that was the big difference going into the studio."
Corbett says the theme of the album ended up being a little dark, but it's certainly no downer. "I just tried to pick the ten best short stories. Didn't go for the hooks."
Full of relatable toe tappin tunes, like "Me and Whiskey". "It's about a guy and his good friend, buddy that comes to town and his name is whiskey and like all guys that have a good friend named whiskey the wife doesn't approve" laughs Corbett.
Corbet is most recognizable for his role of Carrie's boyfriend Aiden on Sex and the City. Despite his very successful acting career, Corbet says music has always had his heart and finds no shame in using stage names to entice an audience. "If the marquee says Big Fat Greek Wedding, Sex in the City, Aiden in here tonight, that is good enough for me."
John has a show in Nashville March 3rd at Whiskey Bent Saloon.
