Brent Cobb’s highly anticipated major label debut, “Shine On Rainy Day”, is now exclusively streaming in full as part of NPR Music’s First Listen series.
Cobb shares…a gift for teasing out the textures of a place, not only through the richness of his written descriptions, but also through the cultivated naturalness in the feel of his music. He has a low-key flair for folding down-home elision, localized detail and lived wisdom into his songs and putting it all across with his woolen drawl and meandering phrasing, sounding simultaneously retiring and neighborly,” NPR’s Music’s Jewly Hight praises of the album.
Out this Friday, October 7th, on Low Country Sound/Elektra Records, “Shine On Rainy Day“ was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb and was recorded live over four days in Nashville.
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.” Brent comments of the music and working with producer (and cousin) Dave Cobb.
Born in Ellaville, GA (a population of only 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.
Brent is currently in the midst of an extensive nationwide tour supporting Anderson East and, on October 15th, will join Chris Stapleton for a special show at Nashville’s Ascend Amphitheatre.
