In 2004, he signed his first record deal with an independent label. While traveling to promote his first album, he hit rock bottom after a near-death experience. He says, “This was the lowest point of my life up until that time.” Corey became singularly focused on his talent as a singer and songwriter – putting to words and music to his real-life experiences. You can hear some of that story in his single entitled, “Let’s Take Tonight.”
Corey recently contracted COVID 19, was hospitalized, and was told that he would not survive it. “Though I had a strong faith, it made me question everything. What gave me solace was believing there had to be a purpose in life for God to have given me this talent and the belief that I had something to offer country music fans. As it turns out, it was music that proved to be the most healing medicine of all.”
Corey has just released his latest single, “Searchlight,” and his new album, ‘Bend-or-Break ‘ He recently made his national television debut on the popular RFD Network show, ‘Larry’s Country Diner.’
