Red Dirt Troubadour Corey Kent Releases New Music Video For 'Something's Gonna Kill Me'


By Stevie Connor.



Red Dirt Troubadour Corey Kent brings his adventurous persona to life in the new music video for his hit single, “Something’s Gonna Kill Me.” Directed by Gus Black, the video finds Kent surrounded by various symbols of his thrill-seeking mentality — cars, horses, motorcycles, and more — all emphasizing his desire to chase the adventures life has to offer. Even if it’s dangerous, Kent embodies “if something’s gonna kill me, might as well be what makes me feel alive.”


Earlier this year, Kent released his major label debut album, BLACKTOP. The project features Kent’s #1 certified platinum single “Wild As Her,” which has amassed nearly 400 million on-demand streams and helped garner a nomination for Breakthrough Male Video of the Year at the 2023 CMT Awards as well as a People’s Country Choice Award nomination for New Artist of 2023.


2023 has been a busy year for Kent—the adventure-seeking road veteran joined Parker McCollum on tour, played multiple festivals and recently wrapped being on the road for Jason Aldean’s 42-city “Highway Desperado” tour playing in front of 15,000+ people each night. To close out the year, he will headline shows of his own. Kent will start 2024 in the UK to play shows with Ashley McBryde before joining up with friend Parker McCollum for 39 dates in the states beginning in February.


Corey Kent finds himself musically at the intersection of rock infused country, heartland values, and red dirt grit. Still in his 20’s, he built the foundation of a fanbase, has been developing his show for 15 years, and is now positioned as one of country music’s next breakout artists nationwide. Drawing inspiration from The Eagles, Keith Richards, Turnpike Troubadours and more, Kent strives to build an undeniable stage presence and his bandana-wearing Rock ‘N’ Roll spirit comes to life on the stage.


Kent released his album BLACKTOP this past June. The 10-track album features writing credits from Kent himself as well as Morgan Wallen, Ryan Hurd, Kelly Archer, Lydia Vaughan and more with production from Jay Joyce and Chris Farren and is an actual representation of various pieces of Kent’s life and the next evolution of his sound.


With over 600 million on-demand career streams, Kent was named as a CMT Listen Up Artist for 2023, a Pandora Artist to Watch The Opry Next Stage Class of 2023, Sirius XM Class of 2022 and was nominated for an AIMP Nashville Country Awards for AIMP Rising Artist-Writer of the Year.
