New Long Cobb

Brent Cobb‘s new single ‘Ain’t A Road Too Long‘ premiered last week.

The track can be heard below and is available to purchase HERE (Low Country Sound/Elektra Records/Atlantic Records).

Of the song, NPR Music’s Ann Powers praises, “…an anthem for the labourers 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.”

Brent debuted the song at last night’s Americana Honors & Awards show at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium, where he was up for Emerging Artist of the Year.

Produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb, ‘Ain’t A Road Too Long’ is the first new music from Brent since last year’s widely acclaimed debut album, Shine On Rainy Day. The single also culminates “Long Live the Storytellers“—a new documentary-style video series created by Ram Trucks and filmed in Nashville with director Greg ‘Freddy’ Camalier (Muscle Shoals). Watch the previous episodes here: EPISODE ONEEPISODE TWO and EPISODE THREE.

Brent explains, “[Being a part of Ram’s ‘Long Live the Storytellers’] campaign is important to me because I’ve been writing songs my whole life. I was born into it. Professionally, I’ve been making a living at it for over a decade and any breaks I’ve had along the way have been because of the songs I’ve written.”

Adding, “It takes drive to stay on that road, figuratively as well as literally. The first truck I ever toured in was a Ram. We toured in it all over the country. A lot of artists before me had used the same truck, so by the time it got to us it had been rode hard. As hard as it had been rode, it still got us where we needed to go.”

After recently wrapping a sold-out European tour, Brent is currently on tour as part of Chris Stapleton’s All-American Road Show and will cap-off 2017 with a special New Year’s Eve concert at Macon’s Cox Capitol Theatre. Full details can be found here.
