NEW DATES ON SALE THIS FRIDAY.
NOMINATED FOR BEST AMERICANA ALBUM AT THE 60TH GRAMMY AWARDS
Grammy nominated singer, songwriter and performer Brent Cobb will extend his “Ain’t A Road Too Long” tour including newly confirmed stops in Houston, Austin, Dallas, Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle and Denver among many others. Tickets for the new shows go on sale this Friday, January 19 at 10:00am local time. See below for complete details.
The extensive headline tour follows a breakthrough year for Cobb, who is nominated for Best Americana Album at the 60th GRAMMY Awards for his major label debut, Shine On Rainy Day. Produced by Grammy Award winning producer Dave Cobb, the album was released last year to overwhelming acclaim on Low Country Sound/Elektra Records. The Tennessean calls it, “…an outstanding piece of work and a collection of true, country songs,” while WXPN World Café asserts, “…a gorgeous solo album that promises to place him in the top echelon of this century’s young troubadours…” Since its release, the album has continued to garner overwhelming acclaim leading to a recent Americana Honors & Awards nomination for “Emerging Artist of the Year” as well as a break-out television debut on CONAN.
The 2018 tour takes its name from Cobb’s new single, “Ain’t A Road Too Long,” which was produced by Dave Cobb and can now be heard/shared HERE and purchased HERE (Low Country Sound/Elektra Records). Of the song NPR Music’s Ann Powers praises, “…an anthem for the laborers who make music possible—a funny, sweet and funky talking blues in which Cobb counts his blessings while acknowledging the sweat equity it took to secure them…Cobb and his collaborators find transcendence in soul’s leavening and the grease of rock ‘n’ roll.”
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 Luke Bryan, The Oak Ridge Boys, Little Big Town, Miranda Lambert and more.
