About Cory Batten:

Cory Batten was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona and moved to Nashville in 2000. It wasn't long before Cory met friend and fellow co-writer and another of Backstage Nashville's Hit Songwriters, Kent Blazy, and the two teamed up on a publishing co-venture. Cory quickly found success with his songs.  From bluegrass sweetheart Rhonda Vincent to one of country's newest duos, Love & Theft, Cory's songs have been receiving a lot of attention. Cory's first #1 Hit, Blake Shelton's "She Wouldn't Be Gone" was immediately followed by his second #1 Hit, Chris Young's "Gettin' You Home (The Black Dress Song)," both in the very same year. He isn't slowing down. Between traveling regularly to share his music and continuing his writing, Cory has been recording and producing his very own artist project this year that he is pitching on Music Row.
