Cory Keefe Keeps It Country with Debut Album

Cory Keefe may be a new face in country music, but traditional sounds run deep in his soul. He's one of the new traditionalists keeping a lost art alive, and Cory is definitely keeping it country.

April 15, 2021 - PRLog -- A new generation of balladeers continues to spark the neotraditional movement in country music. Artists including Cody Johnson, Aaron Watson, and Jon Pardi uphold the roots of country and keep tradition alive. The movement continues to steam forward with the appearance of Cory Keefe, bursting onto the scene with I'll Keep It Country.

The album was produced by Nashville hitmaker Buddy Hyatt, a former member of the rock group TOTO (Rosanna, Hold the Line, Africa). Hyatt has worked with Lee Greenwood, Randy Travis, Mickey Gilley, Lynn Anderson, Jessica Andrews, JoDee Messina, Tracey Lawrence, to name a few; making him a perfect fit for Cory's traditional style. Together with Hyatt, Cory chose 13 tracks written by some of country music's most successful songwriters and gathered a stellar list of players and singers to join Keefe in the studio.

A preview track was released earlier this year. "Where There's A Beer There's A Way," written by Tom Botkin, Kevin Denney, and John Edwards, gave fans a taste of the straight up country music Keefe is ready to serve up. A lyric video accompanied the track.

Concurrent with the album release, the title track will hit radio. "I'll Keep It Country" was written by Michael Rogers, Tom Botkin, and Craig Morgan. The release will feature a music video with a guest appearance by Grand Ole Opry star, Lorrie Morgan, who also lends her voice to the album on the song, "I Just Want You."

A gifted guitar player and singer, Cory Keefe is unabashedly country in his style and delivery. The self-taught musician was influenced by parents who are also talented singers. Along with his twin brother, (who makes a guest appearance on the new CD), Cory often participated in talent shows and other live music events, with a rising passion for music that continues to drive Cory's ambition. Admittedly, Cory became a stickler for rehearsals after he and his twin showed up for a competition self-assured and unprepared; a youthful lesson well-learned.
