BRENT COBB CONFIRMS EXTENSIVE 2017 TOUR

INCLUDING DATES WITH NIKKI LANE, LITTLE BIG TOWN, CHRIS STAPLETON, JAMEY JOHNSON, MARGO PRICE, TIM MCGRAW AND FAITH HILL

CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED NEW ALBUM SHINE ON RAINY DAY OUT NOW

Brent Cobb will tour extensively in 2017 including over 20 dates supporting Chris Stapleton as well as several shows as part of Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s SOUL2SOUL Tour. Additionally, Brent will kick off a series of dates with Nikki Lane tonight in Birmingham and will make his Ryman Auditorium debut this Friday supporting Little Big Town. Finally, later this spring, he will join Jamey Johnson and Margo Price on the Stagecoach Spotlight Tour. See below for complete tour details.

The extensive tour will feature material from Brent’s critically acclaimed major label debut album, Shine On Rainy Day, now available on Low Country Sound/Elektra Records (purchase here).

In celebration of the album, Brent recently visited NPR Music for a Tiny Desk Concert. The full concert can be viewed/shared here. Of the performance, NPR’s music Lars Gotrich praises, “precisely crafted phrases amid simple-yet-rich melodies…the words shimmer like a tall glass of sweet tea in the late-morning sun when he strings together a particularly consonant phrase…”

Produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell, etc.), Shine On Rainy Day was recorded live over four days in Nashville and has received overwhelming acclaim since it’s release last year…

“…a trait that pushes all the right buttons throughout the ten tracks on this impressive effort that proves these relatives with impeccable musical synergy have more than just bloodlines in common.”—American Songwriter

“…it harkens back to the early ‘70s when country music collided with folk rock in the music of Glen Campbell, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, Gram Parsons, and others. It's a stellar set the Cobb cousins have offered up.” —Folk Alley, Best of 2016

“Brent Cobb paints the joy and sadness of rural life in stunning detail…” —Nashville Scene

“A blend of attitude and inspiration, Shine on Rainy Day may be the ideal antidote for today’s troubling times.” —No Depression

“…masterfully understated wit…” —NPR Music

“…a modest sort of perfection: homey, comforting, steadfast.” —Rolling Stone, 40 Best Country Albums of 2016

“…what promises to be cobb’s breakout LP as a singer-songwriter.” —Rolling Stone

“The new record is an outstanding piece of work and a collection of true, country songs.” —The Tennessean

“This is one softly understated collection of country songs from a guy who makes a living writing for more commercial country artists. The front-porch feel and the ease of Brent Cobb’s playing make for a simple and beautiful album.” WXPN World Café, David Dye’s Top 10 Albums of 2016

“…a gorgeous solo album that promises to place him in the top echelon of this century’s young troubadours...” —WXPN World Café


Of the music and working with producer (and cousin) Dave Cobb, Brent comments, “It’s not as good as it’s going to get. But if it’s the last thing that I ever do, if I died the day after it came out, then thank God I was able to record it because the songs and the production, it was everything I wanted to say. Finally.”

Dave adds, “I wanted to work with Brent for very selfish reasons. When he lifts a pen and opens his mouth, it sounds like home. I did his record because he’s part of the fabric of South Georgia and the soundtrack to my family. Pure rural country soul filled music.”


Last year, Brent was featured on Dave’s widely praised Southern Family compilation—contributing the song “Down Home” and writing the standout “Sweet By & By,” which was recorded by Miranda Lambert. Of “Down Home,” Wide Open Country declares, “…one of the most earnest and accurate retellings of everyday life in rural Georgia. The mixture of Cobb’s charming southern drawl, brilliant storytelling and flawless production melds into a track that is impossible to resist.”

Born in Ellaville, GA (population 1,609), Brent moved to Nashville in 2008 and has since found widespread success as a writer with songs recorded by Lambert (“Old Shit”), Kenny Chesney (“Don’t It”), Luke Bryan (“Tailgate Blues”), David Nail (“Grandpa’s Farm”), Kellie Pickler (“Rockaway”) and Eli Young Band (“Go Outside and Dance”) among others.
