Music chose Corey Kent early in his life. At age 11, Corey was touring as the lead singer of a Western Swing band opening for legends like Roy Clark & The Oak Ridge Boys. By the time he could drive, he was playing weekly in his hometown of Bixby, OK. In December of 2010, Corey found himself on stage singing Milk Cow Blues with country music icon, Willie Nelson. By 17, he said goodbye to his family & moved out to Nashville, TN. “I wanted to push myself as a songwriter. What better way to do that than to surround yourself with the best songwriters in the world?” said Kent. Shortly after graduating with his business degree, Corey wrote his first #1 Hit (William Clark Green’s hit, "You Where It Hurts"). Corey won the 2020 Texas Music Pickers Songwriter Competition. Corey Kent celebrated his first #1 as an artist with "Wild As Her" in spring 2023. Kent's third album, Blacktop, is available everywhere now.
