Cobb announces new release

Friday, March 9, 2018 – Brent Cobb will release his new album, "Providence Canyon," on May 11 on Low Country Sound/Elektra Records.

Recorded at Nashville's RCA Studio A with Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb, who is a cousin, the album features 11 songs including "King of Alabama."

Cobb has launched the "Ain't A Road Too Long" tour running into the fall. He is headlining shows and also on the Chris Stapleton tour. Featuring special guest Savannah Conley, the headlining tour includes upcoming stops at DC's DC9, Philadelphia's Boot & Saddle, New York's Mercury Lounge and L.A.'s The Troubadour. Following these headline dates, Cobb will once again join Stapleton on his "All-American Road Show" this summer and fall including dates at L.A.'s The Forum and New York's Madison Square Garden.

Cobb's previous album, "Shine On Rainy Day" from 2016, resulted in a Grammy nomination.

Cobb was born in Americus, Ga., about an hour east of Columbus. Lee Ann Womack, Luke Bryan, The Oak Ridge Boys, Little Big Town and Miranda Lambert have cut his songs.
