About to Get Real is the third studio album by American country music artist Easton Corbin. It was released on June 30, 2015 via Mercury Nashville. It includes the singles "Clockwork", "Baby Be My Love Song". and "Yup". It also includes "Are You with Me" from Corbin's previous album, All Over the Road. The album was produced by Carson Chamberlain.
About the album, Corbin said, "When deciding on an album title, About to Get Real just says it all for me. When country fans listen to this album, I want them to take away that even though the music mixes the modern with the classic, it's entirely real. Like the music of my heroes, it's the real deal." The album's track listing was announced on June 9.
Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic gave the song 3.5 stars out of 5 and wrote that "No matter what the album title implies – "real" usually conveys grit, a quality conspicuously absent from these 12 songs – About to Get Real is so smooth it sometimes suggests the glory days of Urban Cowboy, when modern country flirted heavily with the soft rock mainstream."
The album debuted at No. 1 on the Top Country Albums chart, and No. 13 on the Billboard 200, with 20,000 copies sold in the US in its first week. The album has sold 59,800 copies in the US as of May 2016.Eddie Bayers – drums
