“Man, I think the number one thing that I would encourage my younger self with is just to be patient, to work hard at being excellent in your craft, and to keep your priorities straight,” says Corey.

“I personally let them get out of whack for a little bit, I learned the hard way. And when I finally got those things back into the proper order, that’s really when things started falling into place for me, so I’d just be encouraging to stay patient keep your priorities straight,” he notes.

Corey’s new single, “Something’s Gonna Kill Me,” is now at country radio.
