The name Trey Cornelius may not strike a chord at the moment, but every chord he strikes on his guitar lends credence to his undeniable talent. He is a musician from Huntsville, Alabama, who started singing as a teenager. Trey spent a great deal of his time learning guitar, and he started entertaining people with music as a teenager. In the beginning, all he did was sing other people’s songs, participate in school shows, and karaoke.

He started writing his own lyrics, and today, he is setting plans into motion to launch himself into the limelight and get a record deal.

Trey Cornelius’ music career has not been without hurdles and obstacles. However, being a determined young man, none of that has stopped Trey from pursuing his dreams. When narrating some of the hurdles he has had to scale through, Trey says, “There were places I wanted to go sing at, but I couldn’t because you had to be a certain age or you had to be a member of something. Once I got past that, things got easier to do. One time, I went across the country for a music competition where I made the top 40. Another hurdle was having to learn the guitar. At first, I couldn’t get the right chords into motion; however, in about two weeks, I got my fingers to work, and I already learned six chords.”
Trey does not believe in limiting oneself to the confines of circumstances or life situations. He is a proud fighter, and he has the sheer will to always get things done. The two mottos he lives by are “Make it happen” and “There’s no such thing as No or Never.” His motivation to play the guitar and sing professionally stemmed from many people close to him who became successful musicians. One of his five-year goals is to perform for a large crowd in downtown Nashville.
