Brent Cobb’s NPR Music ‘Tiny Desk Concert’ Premieres Today

Brent Cobb’s NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert premieres TODAY, January 18th and is now available to view here.

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…” NPR’s music Lars Gotrich praises the performance.

The concert includes performances of “Solving Problems,” “Down in the Gulley,” “Country Bound” and “Shine On Rainy Day,” which are all featured on Brent’s acclaimed major label debut album, “Shine On Rainy Day”, now available on Low Country Sound/Elektra Records.

Produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb, the album was recorded live over four days in Nashville and has received overwhelming acclaim since it’s release last year.

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.

Brent is currently in the midst of an extensive worldwide tour including upcoming dates supporting Chris Stapleton, Nikki Lane, The Cadillac Three, and Little Big Town as well as an appearance at Stagecoach. (See below for complete tour details).

Earlier this 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.

…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.” -Wide Open Country declares.

Born in the small town of Ellaville, GA, Brent moved to Nashville in 2008 and has since found widespread success as a writer with songs recorded by Miranda Lambert, Kenny Chesney, Luke Bryan, David Nail, Kellie Pickler and the Eli Young Band among others…
