Nashville Music Guide’s Artists to Watch 2023

Corey Kent finds himself musically at the intersection of rock infused country, heartland values, and red dirt grit. Still in his 20’s, he built the foundation of a fanbase, has been developing his show for 15 years, and is now positioned as one of country music’s next breakout artists nationwide.  Drawing inspiration from The Eagles, Keith Richards, Turnpike Troubadours and more, Kent strives to build an undeniable stage presence and his bandana-wearing Rock ‘N’ Roll spirit comes to life on the stage.

Kent’s explosive single, “Wild As Her,” captured the attention of audiences everywhere. The track garnered nearly 140 million on-demand streams and is RIAA certified Gold before even hitting the Top 40 at Country Radio.  The free-spirited and high-energy track landed Kent his first-ever entry onto the Billboard Hot 100, reached #15 on the Hot Country Songs Chart. Kent spent last year on the road headlining his own dates as well as a string of sold out co-headlining dates with Bailey Zimmerman and is confirmed to tour in the spring with Parker McCollum.
