The Son of the Alamo
There's a lot more than what meets the eye with Country Artist Trey Gonzalez. From his worn hat and boots, dark brown eyes, and light-hearted smile, you would never think a deep sense of ambition was burning in the young cowboy's heart.
Born and raised in San Antonio, Texas, Trey grew up listening to country music in an '01 Ford F-150 where he sang along to the likes of George Strait and Alan Jackson. As time would pass, he began to enjoy the tones of Eric Church, Easton Corbin, Luke Bryan, and Cody Johnson.
Trey finally found his way onto the Texas Country Scene during his senior year at St. Mary's University. Driven and determined, Trey started performing in San Antonio and the surrounding area. Soon after starting his band, Trey produced his first EP The Journey. The EP served as a good stepping stone to help Trey acclimate with the scene and play in some of the larger venues in his region.
'The Journey really allowed me to get a sense of what I really wanted to be as an artist and the direction I wanted to grow in over the next few years"
However, it was during his time at Texas A&M University that Trey's career would kick into another gear. A proud Aggie, Trey released a 2nd EP as a love letter to Aggieland. Entitled Welcome to the Home of the 12th Man, the EP and subsequent singles garnered Trey the support of Aggies around the Lone Star State.
Trey's recent single Down Like This shows a refined tone and style to Trey's sound. Written by Bart Butler and Brad Tursi, the new single shows Trey's ability to push the envelope with a modern sound that has traditional roots. Needless to say, we've yet to see the best from the young cowboy, but we are excited to see where his career goes from here.
