(KJRH) — The Voice is back on NBC, and another talented Oklahoman is set to take the stage.
Corey Kent White will take the stage during the audition rounds of The Voice. But the first big stage he stepped on was at Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
White picked up his guitar when he was only 8-years-old. Three years after, he was already on stage at Cain’s.
“Even if he knows more about country music, I knew there was a star on stage.”
Another season of The Voice, another Oklahoma country musician, and possibly another member of Team Blake. But before The Voice, Corey Kent White’s mom says he began his career with Oklahoma Stomp and a concert for the then 11-year-old at Cain’s Ballroom.
“Probably his favorite place ever to play because of the history. When you go into the back of Cain’s, you have the green room; you have the signatures of all the artists that have played there. It is a big deal.”
White, now 20-years-old, is a Bixby native. He is now an OSU student, who is finishing his degree online… All while living in Nashville to pursue his music career.

“From a mom stand point, he is on a fast musical track. From his standpoint, he would tell you it feels like it is taking a while.”
As White’s episode of The Voice could come at any time, his fans wait to see what team he joins. But his mom says her son will make a name for himself one way or another.
“He sets his goals, and we help him as much as we can to achieve them and we believe in him. He is very disciplined, so we know he will be a success no matter what.”
Keep that in mind. No telling which episode I will show up on!
