Critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Brent Cobb is featured in “Long Live the Storytellers,” a new documentary-style video series created by Ram Trucks. The first episode in the series is premiering today.
Filmed in Nashville with Greg “Freddy” Camalier (Music Shoals), the series chronicles the process of creating Cobb’s new single “Ain’t A Road Too Long,” which will be released on September 15 on Low Country Sound/Elektra Records. While getting to know Cobb with this intimate look into his musical process, “Long Live the Storytellers” also features songwriting insights from the perspective of lauded music producers, musicians, and writers, including Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb and songwriter/musician Dan Penn.
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. Ram understands that drive.”
ABOUT BRENT COBB
Brent 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 Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell) and was released in 2016 on Low Country Sound/Elektra Records. Since its 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. After recently wrapping a sold-out European tour, Brent is currently in the midst of an extensive U.S. tour including over 35 dates as part of “Chris Stapleton’s All-American Road Show” as well as several shows with Tim McGraw and Faith Hill on their 2017 SOUL2SOUL Tour. In addition to his work as an artist, Brent is widely respected as a songwriter garnering cuts by Luke Bryan, The Oak Ridge Boys, Little Big Town, Miranda Lambert and more.
ABOUT RAM TRUCK BRAND
