Drive is the latest single lifted from Canadian country rocker, Cory Marks, forthcoming album, Who I Am, which is available for pre-order now and out through Better Noise Music on August 7.
Cory Marks mixes country music with the hard-hitting stomp of rock n roll to create songs with wide appeal to fans of both genres. His album, Who I Am, is full of autobiographical storytelling, guitar-driven anthems – fan favourite Outlaws & Outsiders (featuring Ivan Moody of Five Finger Death Punch, Travis Tritt and Mick Mars of Mötley Crüe) – and other fan-friendly tracks like Blame It On The Double, Devil’s Grin, Better Off and the latest single Drive – all inspired by childhood favourites ranging from The Rolling Stones to Rush to Waylon Jennings and other outlaws of Country Music.
The release of Drive coincides with the pre-order commence for the album. Marks says of the track, “Drive is one of those summertime, roll down your window, good feeling love songs.”

Billboard Magazine called Outlaws & Outsiders, the 2019 Hit That Couldn’t Be Confined and Country and Rock fans agree. The track has made the steady climb to the top of the radio charts, since its release in November 2019. Currently a Top 10 hit in the US and Top 15 in Marks’ native Canada at Active Rock Radio, the song has blown past genre-barriers. Trending at #8 in the US and #30 globally on the Shazam Discovery charts, Outlaws & Outsiders ranks among the greatest songs of all genres – Black Eyed Peas, Billy Joe Armstrong & G-Easy – illustrating the appeal of Country Rock music beyond genre lines. As rock and country audiences continue to fuel the new growth of streaming, Apple and Amazon have led the way with the introduction of popular new Outlaw Country / Country-Rock hybrid playlists. The inclusion of Outlaws & Outsiders on these playlists has helped Marks build a large audience.
Outlaws & Outsiders can also be heard on the soundtrack to the forthcoming SNO BABIES from Better Noise Films – a gripping tale about the grim realities of teen-age drug addiction and its effects on a middle-class suburban town. As the film and related projects lend support to those in recovery who are struggling in quarantine, Marks is proud to be a part of the efforts.
Since the start of quarantine, Marks has been attentive to his audience, doing two well-attended live sessions per week – one on his Instagram and one via Facebook @corymarksmusic. He has also done sessions for U.S Troops via @shopmyexchange and for radio stations and press worldwide.
