“You know my personal Facebook fan page is now counting 21 or 22 thousand people and that’s the smallest number in terms of social media. Twitter is up and over 55 thousand, Instagram is up and over 33 thousand. Its just unbelievable to look at the support and the followers I've gained from this. I mean when I started this thing I think I had 6,000 followers on twitter and we’re about to hit 56 thousand its just hard to wrap your head around how fast life can change when you step into the national spotlight like this,” said Corey Kent in an interview back in 2015 while he was on the show.
With the help of a new distribution deal Corey Kent has been writing a ton and has plans to get a lot of new music out to his fans. Recently Corey Kent signed with Combustion Publishing, With in the last couple of months, Corey Kent released two new singles, “Few Good Friends” and “End of The Trail”. The song “Few Good Friends” came from a real life experience.
“‘Few Good Friends’ is the first of many this year and the first of two this month. This is the first song we have released under the remake, going from Corey Kent White to Corey Kent. This is the first time I feel like my music and my image are cohesive,” said Corey Kent.
“‘Few Good Friends’ is entirely a 100% true story. It was a result of something that happened to me…It’s a real life experience. As a songwriter a lot of times you’re trying to dream a scenario that will make a number one song [so it’s really special when you can write a song from a real life experience],” continued Corey Kent.
Corey Kent’s new music is getting noticed. According to the Talented singer his songs were getting attention from some “big time” artists, but he decided to release them on his own.

“[When we were looking for a new deal] Combustion was number one. They were the first meeting we had that day, but I didn’t see the need for another. I signed with Combustion before my deal with Warner was up,” said Corey Kent.
