Corey Wagar and her songwriting partner, Gordon Brown, recently embarked on a nationwide radio tour promoting her new album "On the Edge" released on GTR Records. The two have been criss-crossing the U.S. doing radio interviews and reporting back incredible response from listeners. The album, co-written with several of Nashville's "hit makers", including two sides written with Kent, is being touted as a high energy celebration of Corey's "tough girl-independence". The album also features Corey's soft side with heartwarming ballads and her first single, Hurricane, was recently described as having "all the bang of Jason Aldean's country-rock anthems". Way to go, Girl!!
Corey recently made a stop in Nashville to catch her breath and catch up with friends. She's back on the road now and is getting more and more spins added as she makes her way up the charts.

KWP artist Eric Lee Beddingfield is EVERYWHERE lately! With his latest album release, This Life Ain't For Everybody, his debut single from the album, The Gospel According to Jones, is climbing the Music Row Charts. The song, which currently sits at #23 on the charts, penned by ELB, Randy Houser and Adam Fears, was written about ELB's idol and country superstar, George Jones, who also sang on the single. The video for "The Gospel According to Jones", was recently shot in and around the Nashville area and is in the final stages of editing. The video contains several scenes of Eric and George, who graciously agreed to a cameo appearance. What a dream come true!!
Everybody keep an eye out for this video which is sure to be a classic!! We, at Kent Wells Productions, are all very proud and very excited!!!
