Cory Jackson vs. Zach Bridges: "Should've Been a Cowboy" - The Battles
Hometown: Jonesboro, Arkansas
Residence: Jonesboro, Arkansas
Cory grew up in the country on a cattle farm that his grandfather started. In the 11th grade, his grandfather bought him his first guitar and encouraged him to play, so Cory started a band and began to sing in public. While he pursued country music, he also got his bachelor’s degree and later enrolled in a doctorate program for occupational therapy. He ultimately decided to stick with music. Cory works full-time in manufacturing at a software development company and recently got married to the love of his life, Sarah.
