NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- December 07, 2012

Movie, TV star and recording artist John Corbett was a natural pick to be the
new spokesperson for GAC Living Country, the network’s branding campaign. The
West Virginia native has a deep appreciation for his small town upbringing and
when he’s not on tour or on location, can be found on his California horse
ranch.

Corbett will be seen on GAC in a series of spots promoting the cable network’s
commitment to programming that supports the country lifestyle. Current GAC hit
programming includes the Farm Kings and Kimberly’s Simply Southern series as
well as the weekly entertainment news show, Headline Country.

Corbett will release his second album, Leaving Nothin’ Behind, February 5,
2013. Produced by Grammy-winning producer Gary Paczosa and star songwriter and
guitarist Jon Randall Stewart, the album is the follow-up to Corbett’s
self-titled 2006 release which went to No. 42 on the Billboard Country Chart.
He’s perhaps best known for starring roles in the hit series Northern Exposure
and Sex in the City as well as My Big Fat Greek Wedding on the big screen.

“We were looking for a brand spokesperson that lives and can speak to the
country lifestyle and has national appeal,” said Sarah Trahern, SVP/GM, GAC.
“That’s John Corbett.” The campaign was created by Denver-based Impossible.
