From “Lifetimes,” the debut album under the Sound Biscuit label, comes the single from Corey Zink, “1940 Ford.”

“Corey’s new single “1940 Ford “ off the “Lifetimes” album is a perfect example of his ability to paint a picture lyrically and musically that sparks heartfelt memories and reconnects you emotionally to the important things in life.

“Many people enjoy restoring old cars,old buses & old trucks. I wrote the song (Nineteen Forty Ford) for a friend of mine who had restored his 40 Ford. Seeing it brought back to life, as it was when it was brand new open my eyes to why I believe many people enjoy the hobby. My feeling is that it takes them back to a time in their life that they can reflect on happy and positive memories. My intent was to do the same with the song and I hope this song will lift some spirits and take some folks back to a time in their life when they can enjoy the simple pleasures of a less chaotic time. I like to write songs that have a message that will touch your heart or maybe even teach you a lesson. My hope is that This song will bring a smile or a happy tear.”

From “Lifetimes,” the debut album under the Sound Biscuit label, comes the single from Corey Zink, “God’s Guiding Light,” featuring bluegrass country music singer, Amanda Smith.

“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 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 feeling, expanding on what I had said. Later,  I recall remembering that we are never alone. Jesus is with us always. Sharing his strength. Filling our lives with light and Love. My hope is that this song will help us all remember to see all the good first, always and fear not. To trust in Gods plan for us if we follow our peace. I can’t 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 (Gods Guiding Light). “ -Corey Zink


Single Release From Corey Zink, “Best of Her (Cooper’s Song).”

Corey Zink, a popular New England bluegrass artist now relocated to east Tennessee, is releasing a close-to-heart single from “Lifetimes,” his debut album on the Sound Biscuit label. All the songs are Corey’s compositions in which he is supported both by his bandmates from the northeast and new friends from his current home in the Volunteer State.

“When I witnessed the birth of my first born Son, Cooper. I could not have prepared myself for the level of pride and joy that I would feel on that day, as My wife Missy and I became parents for the first time. Shortly thereafter, I wrote this song as a gift for her with the intent of keeping those precious moments forever fresh in our minds, whenever we listen back to the song. Unexpectedly, “Coopers Song” has become one of my most requested originals and I am so proud that this song brings joy and helps others to reflect on special memories of similar experiences in their lives.”
- Corey Zink

“Best of Her (Cooper’s Song)” is now available for radio airplay.
The single will be available worldwide September 3, 2021


The official Worldwide release of “Lifetimes” from Sound Biscuit Artist Corey Zink was released July 23, 2021. This heartfelt collection of original songs written by Corey touches on topics that will somehow connect with everyone who listens. What makes this project unique is Corey’s ability to translate the joys and the inevitable struggles of life into a musical story that touches us all on a very real level through our own experiences.

Songs of family, choices, loss, love, respect and growing old all come together to tell a story. Each song written and performed with personal ties to Corey’s heart.

Featured artists on the album are Steve Carr on bass and Dan Menzone on Banjo. Playing mandolin is John Roc and fellow Sound Biscuit label artist, Jesse Brock. Pete Adams plays steel Guitar. Matt Leadbetter on Dobro. Billy Hawks plays fiddle with guest appearances from Laura Orshaw and Stephen Burwell. Accompanying Corey on vocal harmonies is Amanda & Kenny Smith, Steve Carr, Darrell Webb, and Corey’s son, Mason Zink.

“Lifetimes” has been an extremely exciting project from start to finish. I wrote about things like the birth of my first-born child, moving away from home, becoming my own man, being a husband and father and learning to appreciate what is important in life. I have always liked songs that tell a story. Songs that touch the heart and help us reflect on good memories or encourage us to remain humble and Thankful for our Blessings. This project soared to a new level when I began working with Dave Maggard and signed on the Sound Biscuit label. The quality and passion that went into this project at the hands of the incredible team of engineers, musicians and singers was more than I could have ever imagined. This whole album is special to me for so many reasons. I’m especially proud to have captured these moments in time with my 12-year-old son Mason singing harmony on some of the tracks. I hope “Lifetimes” gives listeners a glimpse into the person I am and if in some way, my songs touch even one heart or brings joy, I will consider this project a complete success.

“I have really enjoyed my time working with and producing Corey. From his heartfelt lyrics and smooth baritone vocals, to his love for family and donuts. Corey is the real deal. By looking into what has been, what is, and at some point, what will be, he has a unique way of translating life and relationships into lyric and song. That’s a true gift”.

Sound Biscuit is excited to announce the new single release “Bein’ Country" from the self titled upcoming debut album on the Sound Biscuit label, “Corey Zink.”

“Bein’ Country” was written and arranged by singer songwriter Corey Zink. Coreys’ writing style is basically a head on collision with his love for traditional bluegrass and classic country music. His upcoming album will be a true testimonial to the original style that is purely Corey Zink.

“I wrote this song to honor my Father, Ron Zink. His quiet strength and humble Country upbringing continues to influence my life. I’m proud to release my first single on the Sound Biscuit Label from my self titled, all originals album.” -Corey Zink

Corey built a huge fan base in the Northeast festival scene before moving to East Tennessee and entertaining at Dollywood for 2 years. Dedicated to his music, Corey went back 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 all 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.

Corey is also available for interviews.

Corey Zink


Corey Zink was born in the Berkshire Mountains of Massachusetts, brought up on the Classic Country Music of the greats like Jones & Haggard. In his early teens Corey discovered a new found love of Bluegrass music while listening to the music of bands like The Johnson Mountain Boys and The Lost & Found. Coming from a large family of Musicians, Corey spent most of his free time in jamming sessions at home or at Bluegrass festivals where he was influenced to develop his own style of singing and playing. He quickly became a fixture playing bass, acoustic guitar or mandolin. Studying the greats, such as Jones, has helped Corey become one of the premier baritone voices on the Northeast bluegrass circuit today. Corey is also becoming known for his heartfelt, original, storytelling songs which have become some of his most requested. Honing his skills on guitar and lead vocals, he has become one of the top drawing artists in New England.

“I first met Corey at a concert near Pittsfield, Massachusetts, where we were performing a few years ago. I have gotten to know him well and have seen his group mature into a class act. Corey's desire for quality music and ability to connect with his audience is evident. He has brought Zink and Company to "must see" status. I would highly recommend them for any venue.”
