BREAKOUT SINGLE “WILD AS HER” CONTINUES IT RISE; RIAA CERTIFIED PLATINUM AND TOP 20 AT COUNTRY RADIO
NAMED A CMT LISTEN UP 2023 ARTIST, PANDORA ARTIST TO WATCH: COUNTRY; NOMINATED FOR AN AIMP NASHVILLE COUNTRY AWARD
RCA Nashville/Sony Music Nashville signee, Corey Kent, releases his deeply personal, heartfelt and autobiographical track, “Man Of The House” today (listen here). The track was produced by Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Cage The Elephant) and written by Kent, Austin Goodloe, Joybeth Taylor and Lydia Vaughan. Earlier this month, Kent released a special acoustic performance video (watch here) of the track after receiving love from his fans when he teased the track across his social media platforms (see here).
“’Man of the House’ is the most therapeutic & heartfelt song of my career,” says Kent. “I had no idea that people would connect with it the way they have already. The thousands of people sharing their stories in the comment section of the teasers have blown my mind. It’s just a kid talking about his real life and other people saying “that’s how I feel, too.” That’s the power of music.”
The track comes on the heels of Kent’s debut at the Grand Ole Opry earlier in January. Kent performed his explosive single RIAA certified platinum single, “Wild As Her.” The free-spirited and high-energy track has garnered over 190 million on-demand streams, landed Kent his first-ever entry onto the Billboard Hot 100, reached #15 on the Hot Country Songs Chart and is currently inside the Top 20 at Country Radio. Watch the “Wild As Her” music video here. Kent also released two additional tracks in 2022, “Hood of That Car” and “How You Know You Made It” as well as his ’22 Tapes EP which was a collection of 4 songs that Kent wanted to share with his fans for their support all year long. Kent was named as a CMT Listen Up Artist for 2023, a Pandora Artist to Watch and was recently nominated for an AIMP Nashville Country Awards for AIMP Rising Artist-Writer of the Year.
Kent spent a large portion of 2022 on the road selling out venues across the country on his own headline dates, festivals and dates with Bailey Zimmerman. He will continue playing for fans all through 2023 first joining Parker McCollum on his Spring 2023 tour. For more information on the tour please visit: https://www.coreykentofficial.com/#tour.
