CORY GALLANT

2018 CCMA Spotlight Artist

ABOUT


Cory is the 2018 CCMA (Canadian Country Music Association) Spotlight Artist and completed two international tours in 2019 with dates in British Columbia as well as Washington and Oregon state, including two sold-out shows in BC. He recently was nominated in five categories for the Music PEI Awards, including the prestigious Entertainer of the Year Award.

His all-original album, Welcome to My World, was released May 2019 (digitally September 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 artist Chris Janson and Emmy Award winning songwriter Trey Bruce.

Cory’s notable performances include his album release party at the CCMA Country Club of the Year (2019) Rock n Horse Saloon in Toronto; Cavendish Beach Festival (July 2019); and CCMA Week (Calgary, 2019 and Hamilton, 2018). Additionally, Cory was invited on stage to perform with legendary recording artist George Canyon when George toured Summerside, Prince Edward Island in November 2018.

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 led to a performance at the Legends Show in Hamilton, Ontario for Canadian Country Music Week, sharing the stage with Chad Brownlee, Terri Clark, Aaron Goodvin, Charlie Major, Jason McCoy, JJ Shiplett, Patricia Conroy and Michelle Wright.

This wasn’t the first prestigious contest that Cory has won though. In 2005, as front man of Canadian band the Bareback Riders, the group won the Corus Radio Battle of The Bands Award. This led to a video for their original song, "Ride" in 2008.

Cory’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.
