Hit Single “Wild As Her” Continues Its Rise With Over 136 Million Streams; RIAA Certified Gold Before Hitting Top 40 At Country Radio
Headlining Dates Through November
One of country music’s most exciting new acts and RCA Nashville/Sony Music Nashville signee, Corey Kent, relishes in the moment and releases “How You Know You Made It” (Listen Here). The Jay Joyce produced track was written by Kent, AJ Prunis and Smith Ahnquist and showcases Kent’s signature heart and grit in both his lyrics and performance.
“I spent years trying to ‘make it’ in the music industry,” says Kent. “Trying to make a name for myself. Trying to make a dollar. I was newly married to my wife, just had our first baby girl and I was more focused on providing for her than being there for her. I took for granted the things in life that really mattered. I was so busy chasing a dream that I couldn’t see that I had THE DREAM right in front of me the whole time. Now after moving to Texas to be closer to family, working for a pavement company through COVID, and playing over a hundred shows in 2021, here we are with an unimaginable year of success. A lot of people are telling us we just might be the next big thing; that we are going to “make it.” And hell, maybe they’re right. Maybe it’s our time. But what they don’t know is…
I got a house that’s home.
I got a can that’s cold.
I got a hand to hold.
We already made it.”
