Acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer Brent Cobb will embark on an extensive headline tour in 2018. The “Ain’t A Road Too Long” tour will kick off February 16 at Memphis’ 1884 Lounge and includes stops at Atlanta’s The Earl, Birmingham’s WorkPlay, Washington D.C.’s DC9, Philadelphia’s Boot & Saddle and New York’s Mercury Lounge among many others. Tickets for the newly announced shows go on-sale this Friday, November 17 at 10:00am local time. See below for complete tour details.  

The new dates follow a breakthrough year for Cobb, who spent much of 2017 opening for Chris Stapleton as part of his “All-American Road Show.” Of a recent performance, the Cleveland Plain Dealer praised, “A funny thing happened at Blossom Music Center Friday night: They had a country concert and…a country concert broke out! Thank you, Chris Stapleton, Margo Price and Brent Cobb, for that.” The paper went on to assert, “His songs, too, have a refreshing depth that just might—if we're lucky—be a harbinger of country’s return to songs with more than light-beer depth.” Cobb will wrap-up his remarkable year with a special New Year’s Eve concert at Macon’s Cox Capitol Theatre (tickets can be purchased here).


The 2018 headline tour takes its name from Cobb’s new single, “Ain’t A Road Too Long,” which was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer 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. His breakthrough major label debut album, Shine On Rainy Day, was produced by Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell, etc.) and was released in 2016 on Low Country Sound/Elektra Records. Since it’s 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. Of the album, The Tennessean declared, “…an outstanding piece of work and a collection of true, country songs,” while WXPN World Café asserted, “…a gorgeous solo album that promises to place him in the top echelon of this century’s young troubadours…” 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.
