Cory’s rich, soul-filled vocals helped gain him national exposure when he became the winner of the 2018 CCMA National Spotlight Performance Contest. Despite hailing from the smallest province in Canada, Prince Edward Island, Cory still received the largest number of fan votes to win the contest. This PEI native’s country roots run deep, being raised on the outlaw sounds of Waylon Jennings, George Jones and Merle Haggard. He is still just as passionate about the genre to this day.
In February, he was awarded the prestigious Entertainer of the Year award as well as New Artist of the Year award from Music PEI. He also received an ECMA (East Coast Music Association) nomination for Country Record of the Year. Cory is currently working with renowned producer Jason Barry on his upcoming sophomore album. His all-original album, Welcome to My World, was released May 2019 and includes “That’s Love”, a duet with Georgette Jones (daughter of George Jones and Tammy Wynette). The eleven-song album includes his first single “We Both Bleed”, which was released nationwide to Canadian radio spring 2019. “We Both Bleed” was written by Nashville recording artist Chris Janson and Emmy Award winning songwriter Trey Bruce.
