Like many before him, multi-platinum-selling singer/songwriter Cory Asbury got his start singing in church at 14 and by 21 was a full-time performer. His 2009 debut, Let Me See Your Eyes, formally launched his career and set the stage to a hard-earned record deal in 2015. Asbury’s seminal album Reckless Love (2018), landed on the top of the Billboard charts, earning him two Dove Awards and a 2019 Grammy nomination. The title track, “Reckless Love,” has been certified 3x Platinum, spent 18 weeks at #1, and earned Billboard, ASCAP, and BMI Christian Song of the Year honors. In 2019, Asbury released his follow-up LP, To Love A Fool, featuring the Gold-certified single “The Father’s House.” To date, Asbury has garnered 1.1 billion worldwide streams, 139 million video views, over 3.16 million monthly Spotify listeners, and over 2 billion audience impressions.
Cory Asbury’s New Release: “Pioneer”
Multi-platinum selling, GRAMMY Award Nominee, Cory Asbury has released his fifth studio album, Pioneer, via BEC Recordings. The raw and vulnerable body of work was a long time in the making and taps into life experiences that Asbury has not previously shared. Teaming up with a veritable who’s-who in Nashville including Lori McKenna (Tim McGraw, Taylor Swift), Shane Stevens (Lady A, Walker Hayes), Tom Douglas (Kane Brown, Miranda Lambert), and Paul Mabury (Lauren Daigle, Chris Tomlin), Asbury shares stories of loss, redemption, and ultimately acceptance throughout Pioneer. Pioneer is now available everywhere HERE.
“Pioneer is my most personal record to date,” shares Cory. “Every song comes from a deep place and carries a part of my story, from childhood to today. Vulnerable, honest and from the heart — every song speaks to what it means to be human — the highs, lows and everything in between. I hope this album meets you where you’re at today.”
