About Brent Cobb

Brent Cobb is an American country music singer-songwriter and artist. Cobb has released six studio albums and one EP. His most recent album, Southern Star, was released on September 22, 2023. Providence Canyon was his second major-label LP with Low Country Sound, an imprint of Elektra. His previous album Shine On Rainy Day peaked at number 17 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart. Cobb also received a 2018 Grammy Award nomination for this album. Cobb has written songs for a variety of country artists, including Luke Bryan, Kellie Pickler, Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, The Oak Ridge Boys as well as many others.

Cobb was born in Americus, Georgia but raised in the nearby town of Ellaville. His father, Patrick Cobb, was an appliance repairman who was also in a rock band. Brent made his vocal debut at age 7 when he sang Tim McGraw's "Don't Take the Girl" with his father's band in a Richland, Georgia festival performance.

As a teenager, Cobb fronted a local band called Mile Marker 5 which had some regional success and opened for larger stars. At age 16, Cobb met his cousin, Dave Cobb, at a family funeral. Dave was a producer based in Los Angeles, and Brent gave him a demo CD. Dave, along with Shooter Jennings, would later fly Brent to Los Angeles to record his debut album, No Place Left to Leave.

Cobb recorded his debut album, No Place Left to Leave, in 2006 with his cousin while in Los Angeles. However, after some time in this period, he decided to return to Georgia.

Country star and acquaintance Luke Bryan suggested Cobb move to Nashville which, in turn, he eventually did in 2008. Initially, Cobb worked as a photo developer at Walgreens but eventually managed to negotiate a songwriting contract with Carnival Music Publishing within the year.

After obtaining his songwriting contract, Cobb then went on to write a variety of songs for many prominent stars, such as Luke Bryan's "Tailgate Blues", David Nail and Frankie Ballard's "Grandpa's Farm", Kellie Pickler's "Rockaway", Kenny Chesney's "Don't It", Miranda Lambert's "Old Sh!t", as well as numerous other performers.
