Track Serves Up Aerial View Of Traditionalist’s Upbringing And Lifestyle
As A Harmonious Blend Of Revelry And Reverence
NASHVILLE, Tenn- Corey Davis (Bama Beats), a newcomer to the country music scene who is making great strides, celebrates the release of his debut single “Beer And The Bible”* AVAILABLE NOW via all major digital retail outlets and streaming services.
Written by Davis, "Beer And The Bible" is a soulful ode to the complexities of a Southern upbringing where the sacred and the spirited intertwine time and time again. Lyrics delve deep into the heart of a man raised on the contrasting teachings of cold brews and holy scriptures. “I grew up among a very humble, hardworking and talented family. We lived in a small town and revered all aspects of its character. The lifestyle taught me humility in exaltation and to always give God the glory. I work to keep my priorities in order--God, family, country and fun,” introduced Davis. “‘Beer And The Bible’ is an aerial view and summation of my life.” With lines like "Raised up down in the Southland where beer and the Bible run deep" and "Thank God I’m a country boy, beer and the Bible made me,” the track captures the essence of a life lived in the balance between sin and salvation. The chorus is a powerful testament to the duality of the Southern soul, with the protagonist raising his glass in one breath and falling to his knees in prayer in the next.
Steeped in classic country motifs, the production (produced by Grady James) is a masterclass blend of the old and the new and evokes picturesque scenes of dusty roads, wooden church pews, and the comforting hum of cicadas on a summer evening. Davis’ debut single (“Beer And The Bible”) is the lead track from his 2023 waterfall series; He will follow with his sophomore single, “When The Devil Took Me,” scheduled for a mid-November release.

ABOUT Corey Davis grew up in Mississippi at the end of a pig trail road located on the banks of the Tenn-Tom waterway. Living a stone’s throw away from his grandparents, as his closest neighbors, he grew up working alongside his dad and granddad in the fields to harvest the next meal and drawing water from a nearby well. Corey knows the true meaning of rural living and growing up in a small town; a lifestyle and upbringing that shaped the core of his sturdy character. Having lived through, and survived tough times, Corey learned the most important life values (respect, discipline, integrity and love for God); values that resonate at the forefront of his music as wide-open and fearless. Recognizing first and foremost his father (who was a talented musician and performer in his own right) as his biggest influence in life and in music, followed by Merle Haggard as a country music trendsetter, Corey’s traditional upbringing and outlaw style translates honestly in his songwriting. The self-taught guitar player and drummer’s contemplative, quiet and reserved demeanor enlivens under the stage spotlights like gunpowder and lead with a raw vibrance that explodes with authenticity. Corey’s debut single, “Beer And The Bible” is the title track from his six-song CD anticipated in early 2024 and is illustrative of the storyteller’s knack for delivering simplistic and realistic lyrics that paint a crystal-clear picture from a truthful perspective.
