Nashville artist Cory Marks shares his latest single ‘Better Off’, a rocking, countrified reflection on love not-quite-lost.
The relatable break-up ballad is about bittersweet moment of parting ways with a toxic person in your life for your own happiness, even though it’s hard to let them go.
The video for ‘Better Off’ is a walk through a town filled with memories of that previously-special someone. “I had a great time on set while making this video. Blake (director Blake Judd) did a great job showing love and loss while not being too obvious about but still capturing great moments in and out of the relationship,” explains Cory.
Listen to ‘Better Off’ by Cory Marks on the Official Fantasy Premier League playlist on Spotify.
Cory’s previous single ‘Outlaws & Outsiders’ (featuring Ivan Moody, Travis Tritt and Mick Mars), debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Rock, Hard Rock Digital Songs and Country Digital Song sales charts, along with top 5 positions in country charts around the world.
Full of autobiographical storytelling, guitar-driven anthems, drinking songs, and breakup ballads, Cory Marks’ songs are rooted in the influence of his hometown, where he grew up surrounded by the salt-of-the-earth residents of North Bay, Ontario.
It was there where he began playing drums at ten years old. Whenever he wasn’t banging along to songs by Deep Purple, Ozzy Osbourne, and Rush, he was listening to his parents’ country records, developing a deep appreciation for outlaws like Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard.
Those two genres — classic country and amped-up rock — would eventually join forces in Marks’ own music, earning him a string of gigs with heavyweights like Toby Keith and Brantley Gilbert along the way.
