Nashville’s Artist to the Stars, Corey Frizzell Creates
Nashville Music Guide Magazine’s May Cover


Nashville, TNNashville’s Artist to the Stars, Corey Frizzell has been retained by the Nashville based music magazine, Nashville Music Guide to create the May 2011 Cover.
“Frizzell is quickly becoming the go to guy in Nashville for music related art. From fine art portraits of the stars for the stars to show posters and websites, everywhere you turn, Frizzell’s name seems to be on it.” – Randy Matthews, NMG
When Randy Matthews purchased the Nashville Music Guide from co-founder Dan Wunsch earlier this year, Matthews was carrying on and even expanding a proud tradition of superb service to the Nashville music community that began 15 years ago.

Since 1995 music people in Nashville and around the world have known that the NMG is “publicizing singers, musicians, and writers to Music Row and beyond,” as each issue declares on its cover. Best of all, NMG doesn’t just promote and write about the tiny number of artists and writers who have major-label deals or staff songwriter contracts. It has always helped the thousands of lesser known Nashville singers, players, and writers who toil year in and year with little or no recognition.

The Frizzell family, most famous for its prominence on the Country Music Charts, is now witnessing the artistic successes of the second generation. Although he has siblings following in the Frizzell music footsteps, who have accepted the challenge of emerging from the giant shadow first cast by the family music patriarch, Lefty Frizzell, Corey chose a different path, a path to create his own shadow.
Corey falls somewhere in the middle of the six children spanning four decades of Allen Frizzell, former Nashville recording artist and younger brother of the Legendary Lefty Frizzell and Country Star, David Frizzell. As the nephew of Lefty & David and the son Allen Frizzell, Corey, is proud of his musical heritage, but took a very different path, one not filled with creating music but instead with art and boxing. Although Corey’s passion for boxing kept this former Golden Gloves Champion in and out of the ring for a decade, his love for drawing has always been there. Over the years he perfected his craft, starting with cartoons and now creating portraits for the general public. In 2006, Frizzell came full circle when he started creating portraits for Country Music stars like George Jones, Brad Paisley, Alan Jackson, Randy Travis, Joe Diffie, Mark Chesnutt and Willie Nelson to name a few.  Although Frizzell’s portraits hang on the walls of many legendary Country Music Stars and writers, his works can also be found on display in many public venues like the KY Music Hall of Fame, Nashville’s Sun Records Museum and the world famous Nashville Palace. Frizzell has also ventured in to writing, management, graphic and web design, catering to the Country, Bluegrass and Gospel music industries. It looks like Frizzell found his niche, carrying on the family name while blazing a path of his own.
