Corey built a huge fan base in the Northeast festival scene before moving to East Tennessee and entertaining at Dollywood for several years. Dedicated to his music, Corey is full time on the road with his Bluegrass band “Zink & Company“, as well as his Country band, “Classic Country Road Show”,  performing at Bluegrass and Classic Country festivals across the U.S. He also has a local band, JCT 441 based at home in Sevier County playing Classic Country from the 1950s to early 2000. His distinct baritone voice is perfect for his crossover combination of down-to-earth lyrics and style, creating original “Corey Zink” stories in song.

"I was approached one evening following a live performance by a woman who had just listened to a few words I had said between songs. I had spoken briefly about feeling incredibly thankful to be able to do what I love, for a living. I spoke about the challenges we all face in life, working to be the best that we can

be while trying not to forget to count our blessings. She suggested that I write a song about my feelings, expanding on what I had said. I began writing my thoughts that we are never alone. Jesus is always with us. Sharing his strength, filling our lives with light and love. My hope is that this song will help us all remember if we follow our peace, to always see the good first, fear not, and trust in God’s plan for us. I cannot remember the name of the woman who suggested that I write this song but wherever she is, I hope she approves. Maybe someday I’ll get a chance to thank her for the inspiration for (God’s Guiding Light).” -Corey Zink
