About Cory Gallant:
Cory completed an international tour in May 2019 with dates in British Columbia as well as Washington and Oregon state, including a sold-out show in Ashcroft, BC.
His single “We Both Bleed” was released nationwide to Canadian radio stations on May 27 and digitally on June 4. On May 28, 2019, “We Both Bleed” was the number one downloaded song to Canadian radio stations and on May 30,2019 was still in the top three most downloaded songs.
The song was written by Nashville artist Chris Janson and Emmy Award winning songwriter Trey Bruce. The eleven-song all-original album, Welcome to My World, will be released later in the spring and includes “That’s Love,” a duet with Georgette Jones (daughter of George Jones and Tammy Wynette).
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.
