Brent Cobb on the Spirit Behind Shine On Rainy Day

Singer-Songwriter Finds a Home on 10-Song Sophomore Album

Brent Cobb admits he’s a believer in the saying, “Nashville is a 10-year town.”

He can say that honestly.

Personally, Cobb’s life has seen a lot of change since then the August 2006 release of his debut album No Place Left to Leave. He is a family man now, living in Music City where he and his wife raise their 2-year-old daughter, Lyla.

“It has been the best two years of my life,” Cobb said. “I hadn’t cut my hair since before Lyla was born at all. I haven’t even trimmed it. I should do something with it.”

Some of his friends who struggled to make it on Music Row have come and gone. Some who stayed went on to turn the genre on its head, like Chris Stapleton who swept the 2015 CMA Awards following the release of his country debut Traveller.

On Friday (Oct. 7), Stapleton tweeted two words, “Buy this,” and included a link to purchase Cobb’s striking sophomore album Shine On Rainy Day.
