Nashville, TN, June 12, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Artist to The Stars, Corey Frizzell will be appearing on the Nashville based TV show “Music, Music, Music” hosted by Michelle Rae to speak about his new projects and the experience of dealing with a child battling cancer.
The Michelle Rae’s Music, Music, Music show features artist’s drawn from Nashville’s vast pool of talent and spotlights awareness of domestic abuse and cancer, the latter of which Frizzell knows firsthand, having a one year old daughter with a rare and aggressive form of Leukemia.
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, owned by Dukes of Hazzard fame, Ben “Cooter” Jones and the world famous Nashville Palace. It looks like Frizzell found his niche, carrying on the family name while blazing a path of his own.
