11 Songs, 40 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

With his profile raised by his GRAMMY®-nominated, major-label debut, 2016's Shine on Rainy Day, Georgia's Brent Cobb spent much of 2017 on the road opening for one of country's leading songwriters. "When you're touring with Chris Stapleton," Cobb said, "you find yourself wanting to play something upbeat." This seems to have been the inspiration for Providence Canyon, whose songs are beefed up with burly, Southern-fried funk riffs and production as lush as the Georgia pines that grace the album art. Cobb's knack for everyman storytelling remains intact, best encapsulated by the touching "King of Alabama," an ode to the tragic passing of outlaw-country musician Wayne Mills.
