Kent Blazy Gets ‘Authentic’ On New Collection

Kent Blazy is releasing a brand new project, Authentic, today.

The hit singer/songwriter also played electric guitar on the new album, which also features Jon Pardi’s bass player, Lee Francis, and drummer, Kevin Murphy locking in the groove, Steve Allen from the pop band 2020 on electric guitar, and Josh Martin on guitar, mandolin, and vocals.

“My aim was to have this record bring hope,joy, gratitude and fun to anyone listening,” Blazy said. “I am blessed to have two songs that are on this album that have been recorded by other artist, but not yet released on their individual projects. Garth Brooks has recorded, ‘Me Without You’ and Steve Wariner recorded ‘Scotty Moore.’ It was an emotional and joyful experience to play with other musicians again and to hear them bring to life the songs I had been creating. I love the way it all came together with ease. I miss playing live and doing album release shows and look forward to the day that will be possible again. I hope the listeners will enjoy hearing these songs as much as I did creating it.”

The new music is available to order on Kent Blazy’s website and on streaming and digital platforms.

Blazy is a current Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame nominee. The Kentucky native is known for his writing collaborations with Garth Brooks, which yielded the classics “If Tomorrow Never Comes,” “Ain’t Goin’ Down (’Til The Sun Comes Up),” “Somewhere Other Than The Night,” “It’s Midnight Cinderella” and “She’s Gonna Make It.” Kent also was a co-writer on the Brooks & George Jones duet “Beer Run,” as well as on “That’s What I Get For Lovin’ You” by Diamond Rio, “My Best Days Are Ahead Of Me” by Danny Gokey, and “Gettin’ You Home (The Black Dress Song)” by Chris Young, among others.
