Movie, Television Star, Musician John Corbett Is The 'GAC LIVING COUNTRY' Brand Spokesperson (Photo: Business Wire)

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.
