County artist Brent Cobb will be filling Callaghan’s warm and intimate setting with sounds from his Grammy-nominated sophomore full-length recording, “Shine On Rainy Day,” which was produced by his cousin Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson).
Since its 2016 release, “Shine On Rainy Day” solidified Cobb’s reputation as one of Music City’s hottest singer-songwriters. He had already earned respect on the publishing side of the Nashville country scene, over the years penning songs performed by such country notables such as Luke Bryan, The Oak Ridge Boys, Little Big Town and Miranda Lambert.
His clients and fans alike have fallen in love with the honest, raw style of working man’s country found on “Shine On Rainy Day.” Throughout the album, Cobb delivers his dirt-road poetry through tenor vocals tinged with Georgia soul.
The rural environment and rich culture of his hometown of Americus, Georgia, provided a wealth of inspiration for one of the indie music scene’s freshest albums. From the gentle style of “South of Atlanta” to the backwoods stomp of “Down in the Gulley,” this album portrays a country artist who pays equal attention to both the lyrical and instrumental aspects of his sound.
