Cory has the heart and soul of a “True Cowboy,” although born and raised in Los Angeles. You see, his family on both sides have bloodlines that run deep in cowboy tradition. This is what inspired young Cory to use his exceptional singing and writing ability to create the music soundtrack for “A Cowboy Operetta.” This work is inspired by the bestselling book “The Spirit Of Dogie Long” from the highly-admired Western author JPS Brown. This much-anticipated release is produced by legendary producers Ray Kennedy and John Forbes, with music from Chuck Mead and The Grassy Knoll Boys. Cory Padilla has come to understand it takes time, pride in what you do and hard work to “make a hand.” This is how he approaches this project and what will be the first of many from this future music star.
