A year ago today, I met Brent Cobb for the first time when I attended his performance at Grimey’s Record Store! I discovered him (solo) a month prior at a songwriters round during Americana Fest and I knew immediately he would be an artist on my radar! I quickly fell in love with his music and songwriting. After seeing him perform with a full-band and how gracious and kind he was to me after the show, it pretty much sealed the deal even more. His album Shine On Rainy Day topped my favorite list in 2016.
Fast forward a year and 13 shows later and I’m honored to call Brent a dear friend. My favorite part about him is the humility he displays, whether its on stage or afterwards when meeting fans. It doesn’t hurt that he comes from a loving, supportive family (who I happen to adore)! I think they’re a big reason he has his head on straight and will continue to do great things in the future.
Keep watching for Brent Cobb. Just this past Saturday, I watched him open for Chris Stapleton at a sold-out, 20,000-person capacity venue at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN. It won’t be long until he’ll be the headliner there.
Here’s a link where you can keep up with his tour dates. Buy some merch and music while you’re at it. http://brentcobbmusic.com/
