They say “when you know, you know” and Corey Kent proves that he knows just what he’s doing on his latest song, “You Know.” The observant and steadfast Texas troubadour embodies a softer side on his new track to unveil the small, intimate moments that make him fall more in love with his wife every day. The release sees another side to the singer-songwriter—one that draws back the curtains and invites listeners into the raw, emotional storytelling that Kent is proud of. (Listen Here/Watch the Visualizer Here).
“‘You Know’ is about my wife, Dayna,” says Kent. “Every line. Every detail. Every word. The chorus gives some insight into how our relationship started & the verses consist of a bunch of little things I’ve learned about her over the years that make me fall more in love her as time goes on. Didn’t have to use my imagination to embellish a single thing. Just had to study her over the years & write it all down.”
Earlier this year, Kent released his major label debut album, BLACKTOP. The project features Kent’s #1 certified platinum single “Wild As Her,” which has amassed over 375 million streams and helped garner a nomination for Breakthrough Male Video of the Year at the 2023 CMT Awards as well as a People’s Country Choice Award nomination for New Artist of 2023.
2023 has been a busy year for Kent, the adventure-seeking road veteran joined Parker McCollum on tour, played multiple festivals and recently wrapped being on the road for Jason Aldean’s 42-city Highway Desperado tour playing in front of 15,000+ people a night. To close out the year, he will headline shows of his own.
