About Corbin Hayslett:

Corbin Hayslett grew up around his father and mother’s musical talents in religious and secular music. From an early age, he was singing and cultivating a passion for bluegrass, old time, and traditional Americana and southern musical forms. He has won multiple competitions in banjo and vocals throughout Virginia, West Virginia, and North Carolina. Corbin now manages County Sales in downtown Floyd and performs with Nobody’s Business. “Traditional music has been the mainstay of my from my earliest memories. My Dad taught me to love and sing like The Stanley Brothers while I was in a car seat and my mom sat me on the front-row pew during choir rehearsals. The music of Virginia’s mountains has been passed down in my family for nine generations. I’ve had the honor of playing mountain music in three hemispheres and on stages ranging from the Floyd Country Store to the Grand Ole Opry at the Ryman Auditorium. It is my honor to share my love of our music through the Handmade Music School.”
