Easton Corbin Takes Fans Kayaking on the Harpeth River

A lucky few members of Easton Corbin’s fan club were given a memorable experience with the “Clockwork” singer on Friday, June 6: an early-morning kayaking trip on the Harpeth River just outside Nashville. Turns out, he is a little more country than that.

Approximately 20 people (including some of Easton’s team) were gathered at the event, which was guided by the crew from Duck Canoe and the Hook1 store.

The fans who were part of the trip (predominantly female) represented places as far-flung as Minnesota and even Germany.

Many of the participants were first-time kayakers, but quickly settled into navigating the lazy Harpeth River and enjoying the steamy morning.

Easton was decidedly a pro, coming equipped with a more upright seat for his craft and a couple fishing poles so he could paddle off and cast a line.

The trip moved quickly, as the water level and current in the Harpeth were up following a few days of heavy rain in the Nashville area.

But when the journey concluded at Newsom’s Mill, Easton was quite the gentleman: he quickly hopped off his kayak and waded in the waist-deep water to help his fans dismount and exit the river.
