Singer-songwriter Corey Kent has signed with WME for global representation. He will work with agents Nate Towne and Hayley Riddle alongside his management team at Triple 8 Management.
In 2019, Kent signed a publishing deal with Combustion Music and has since written songs for Kolby Cooper, Brandon Jenkins, and Clark Green’s hit song, “Hit You Where It Hurts.” In 2021, he was providing support on tours with artists such as Parker McCollum, Eli Young Band, Cody Johnson, and Koe Wetzel. Kent’s song “Gold” captured 2.5 million streams and crowd favorite, “Ain’t My Day,” quickly amassed 2 million streams.
In December of 2021, Kent released his sophomore album, ’21, making its way up to the No. 4 debut album on Spotify in the US. The album’s focus track, “There’s Always Next Year” found its way onto numerous playlists, such as New Music Friday, Country Risers, Country Caffeine, Texas Music Now, Next from Nashville, and Texas Forever. He was also named Country Riser of the Month for March 2022, a program launched by Apple Music in February 2022 with Hailey Whitters.
Kent recently released his new single, “Wild as Her,” produced by Chris Farren and published through Combustion Music. The track has already garnered over 17 million streams since its release on March 4 and is steadily climbing the streaming charts. The track also hit the No. 1 spot on Apple Music’s Country Chart, landed at No. 7 on Spotify’s US Viral Top 50 Chart, and hit No. 36 on Spotify’s Global Viral Top 50 Chart as the only country act.
“I’m excited about our partnership with Nate Towne and the team at WME!” says Kent. “I was looking for a team that was passionate about our music, understood our vision, had the capacity to take us on and could match how hard we were already working. That’s exactly what we found in Nate at WME”.
“We’re thrilled to be a part of Corey’s team and to welcome such a talented singer-songwriter to our roster,” adds Towne. “Corey’s had tremendous success out on the road and we look forward to building on that.”
