““When I returned from Iraq the third time, I went into a studio with a friend in Arizona and recorded the songs and titled the collection From Baghdad to Bisbee,” Corbin said. “It is the most honest and overwhelming collection of songs I ever wrote since all but one were written in a tent outside of Baghdad while I was living the song.” "The resulting songs were a mix of funny songs he would use to keep everyone loose and introspective ballads that Corbin said reflected the guilt he felt leaving his family for so long and the desire not to do it again." "Music is Corbin's outlet for expression." " It is a way for Corbin to comment on what he sees around him and a way to communicate feelings and observations into words, whether it be through satire, sadness, politics or joy. This is much like his influences John Prine, Kris Kristofferson, Johnny Cash and Todd Snider."”
