Cory is a diehard supporter of Country music, and has an encyclopedic knowledge of the history of Country music, both Canadian and American. He loves new music by artists like Jamey Johnson, Zac Brown Band, Sunny Sweeney and older artists like Keith Whitley and Alabama. Growing up listening to Canadian icons like George Fox, Rick Tippe, Michelle Wright and Foster Martin Band made Cory one of the biggest supporters of Canadian Country music. One of his passions is helping promote new Canadian artists, especially those from Alberta. Cory helped create and launch Alberta's Country Music Association in 2008.
