FireFest in Cold Spring has announced the replacement for Jimmie Allen, and the folks in Central Minnesota should be excited to see Corey Kent come to the stage this summer.

We are excited to announce that Corey Kent will be joining the Fire Fest Lineup and bring hit songs like "Wild As Her", "Ain't My Day" and more!

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 according to his online biography has been entertaining folks since the age of 11.
