EDITORS’ NOTES

Now that Brent Cobb has earned respect as an in-demand songwriter for Nashville stars, the Georgia native is introducing his own brand of easygoing, sun-baked country soul. “Solving Problems” and “The World” envision a low-key jam session between James Taylor, Dickey Betts, and Ray Lamontagne. Cobb replaces the righteous swagger of Southern rock with something gentler, sweeter, and more searching.

About Brent Cobb

A native of Ellaville, Georgia, Brent Cobb's country songs often celebrate and mythologize rural small-town life. The cousin of Nashville producer Dave Cobb (Shooter Jennings, Sturgill Simpson), Brent made his first bid for success during a short stint in Los Angeles, where he recorded his 2006 debut, No Place Left to Leave, which Dave produced. Not long after, his friend Luke Bryan, a fellow Georgian for whom Cobb had opened some shows, convinced him to relocate to Nashville, where he soon found some success as a Music Row songwriter. He signed a publishing deal with Carnival Music and, by 2011, was landing songs with Bryan, Kellie Pickler, Eli Young Band, Miranda Lambert, and others. He continued to record his own music, releasing a self-titled EP in 2012 and opening shows for Blake Shelton and other high-profile country stars. With his cousin Dave now firmly established in Nashville, the two Cobbs paired up once again to record Brent's sophomore LP, Shine on Rainy Day. Released by Elektra in 2016, the album featured a warm, stripped-down sound evocative of classic artists like Kris Kristofferson and Jesse Winchester. ~ Timothy Monger
