Cory Gallant’s modern, yet traditional sound brings the best of 90s country to the 2020s – think Tim McGraw meets Luke Combs. After winning the 2018 CCMA National Spotlight Contest, he earned several awards and nominations for his debut album, including 2020 Music PEI Entertainer of the Year. Down home charm meets saloon party when Cory is on stage, whether it be solo or with his rockin’ band, The Red Dirt Posse.

His country roots run deep, being raised on the outlaw sounds of Waylon Jennings, George Jones, and Merle Haggard. He is just as passionate about the genre to this day. Cory’s currently working on his sophomore album, to be released early 2023.
