In Real Life, Easton Corbin Didn’t Get Out of the Ticket

In his hit “All Over the Road,” Easton Corbin sings about getting his way out of a ticket. But in real life, Easton couldn’t pull it off.

The country singer tells ABC News Radio that he got a ticket for going 80-plus miles an hour in a construction zone in Illinois while hauling a motorcycle back to Nashville. Easton says he was merging where the highway went from two lanes into one, and he was speeding to get ahead of a semi truck next to him.

That’s when the blue lights came on.

“He comes up to me, and he said, ‘You was going 85 or 87 in a construction area.’ I just started cringing—a construction area going that fast. And he said, ‘Man, I just couldn’t let you go,’” Easton said.

It was an expensive reminder to slow down.

“I had to hire an attorney to come pay my ticket. It ended up costing me a thousand bucks. I was like, ‘I will never speed again in my life.’ I was about to pass out when I heard what it was gonna be.”
