He also performed “High In The Country” as a web exclusive—watch/share here.

Recent critical praise for Providence Canyon

“One of the chief pleasures of Providence Canyon—and it’s an album with no shortage of pleasures—is the easiness of Cobb’s delivery. He never rushes a song, not when he lays into a thick, swampy groove, settles in for a slow tune, or evokes an outlaw country where all the cowboys would rather act as gentlemen instead of scoundrels.”—All Music

“…he epitomizes all that’s enticing about Southern rootsy singer-songwriters securing a vibe that’s organic, authentic and above all honest.”—American Songwriter

“Its scuzzy, swampy, sexy and laid back sound is straight from the 70s and wouldn’t be out of place next to a Skynyrd album.”—Austin American Statesman

“‘Come Home Soon’ strikes the perfect balance between nostalgia and being overly sentimental, fully accomplishing the former without dipping into the latter.”—The Boot

“The sweet spot between big-city country and small-town Americana…with a swampy, twangy sound that eagerly dips into funk and soul while still retaining a deeply loose, deeply southern quality.”—The FADER

“The record has the goods from the excellent opening title track on down. Cobb’s got the perfect voice to suit his songs which are topped off with just enough country-rock and a dose of pedal steel to form one of the best country albums of the year.”JamBase

“Brent Cobb has a rare depth and groove that puts him head and shoulders above most of his peers…[Providence Canyon is] full-blown country soul…one of those brilliantly timeless albums that could have been lost in someone’s dusty attic for decades. Don’t wait 30 years to find it for yourself.”—MOJO

“…Providence Canyon, with its accessible structures, sounds, and subject matter, may well enroll new listeners, Cobb gaining greater traction as a country singer-songwriter with talent, charisma, and a studious love for the genre.”—No Depression

“Nobody is more fluent in country-funk than Brent Cobb”
“Who wouldn’t want to be as comfortable in their skin as Cobb is on Providence Canyon?”

NPR Music

“…the singer has developed a keen observational eye over the years, and a lazy, loping drawl that’s reminiscent of that style’s Grand Master, the late Roger Miller.”—Paste

Providence Canyon, is one of the year’s best…fresh spins on timeworn country themes…with his soothing Georgia drawl enhancing the feeling.”­—The Philadelphia Inquirer

“…maintains the warm, engaging spirit of its predecessor.”—Relix

“An evocative new album from one of Nashville’s maverick new singer-songwriters…”
Rolling Stone

“Not since the days of Cledus Snow and J.J. Cale have we heard such authentic and infectious country soul scratched into vinyl.” —Saving Country Music

“Singing with a country twang but rocking in the spirit of the Allmans and Skynyrd…Cobb also adds a dash of Jerry Reed, taking his music in a deliciously funky direction.”—UPROXX

“Like your favorite novel, Providence Canyon grows more familiar and compelling each time you revisit it…a masterful southern opus…with Providence Canyon, Brent Cobb has created a place you’ll want to revisit again and again.”—Wide Open Country

In celebration of the album, Cobb is currently on tour as a part of “Chris Stapleton’s All-American Road Show” including upcoming dates at L.A.’s The Forum, Chicago’s Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre and New York’s Madison Square Garden. Cobb’s headlining “Ain’t A Road Too Long” tour continues this September in Europe after spanning 50+ North American cities earlier this spring. See below for full details.

The new album and tour follow a breakthrough few years for Cobb, who was nominated for Best Americana Album at the 60th GRAMMY Awards for his major label debut, Shine On Rainy Day. Since the album’s release, Cobb was also nominated for Emerging Artist of the Year at the 2017 Americana Honors & Awards and made his television debut on CONAN.

Cobb was born in Americus, Georgia, about an hour east of Columbus, in the rural south-central part of the state. In addition to his work as an artist, Cobb is widely respected as a songwriter garnering cuts by Lee Ann Womack, Luke Bryan, The Oak Ridge Boys, Little Big Town, Miranda Lambert and more.
