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.

Modern Southern Rock

This album conjures feelings that you’ve been transported back to the mid-70s, the heyday of southern rock n’ roll. Yes, by modern standards this is a country record, but listen to “I Don’t See Ya” and tell me you don’t hear Dickey Betts and the Allman Brothers’ influence.

.30-06 gives you those Skynyrd vibes, as do a bit of the other songs. Brent and his band, Them, have a laid back, smooth feel to them, as if you’ve just entered his sleepy hometown of Ellaville, GA.

I had a chance to meet and talk with Brent. He is as warm and personable as he is in his songs. He loves everyone and takes his time to talk with each of his fans after a show. “Ain’t a Road Too Long” isn’t just a song, it’s his mantra.

I’ve heard a good number of these tracks performed live. Support this artist, go to the show, and you won’t be disappointed with this album!
