Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter and musician Brent Cobb’s debut gospel album, And Now, Let’s Turn To Page…, is out now via his own label, Ol’ Buddy Records. Stream/purchase HERE.

Reflecting on the album, Cobb shares, “These songs have uplifted my spirit throughout my whole life. They still do today. Doesn’t matter to me what anyone does or doesn’t believe in, if the only belief one has is in music, I believe this album will uplift the listener’s spirit as well.”

In celebration of the release, Cobb was featured on NPR’s “Morning Edition” earlier today and will embark on his headline “When It’s My Time Tour” next month. Upcoming shows include Washington DC’s City Winery, Philadelphia’s City Winery, New York’s City Winery, Lexington’s The Burl, Chicago’s City Winery, Indianapolis’ Hi-Fi and Nashville’s City Winery among many others. See below for complete itinerary.

Produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb (Brandi Carlile, Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton) and recorded at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A, the record features new renditions of eight traditional gospel songs that have been a cherished part of Cobb’s life, as well as one original track, “When It’s My Time,” written by Cobb, his wife, Layne, and Mike Harmeier. With these songs, Cobb pays homage to the community and values of his hometown of Ellaville, GA, while still incorporating his acclaimed signature sound—imbuing these gospel standards with elements of country, blues and southern rock in a way that is authentically and uniquely Cobb.

Critical acclaim for And Now, Let’s Turn To Page…

“His twang and unrushed vocals are perfectly placed…From beginning to end, And Now, Let’s Turn to Page… serves as a lovely country church primer, certainly worthy of a hearty ‘Amen.’”—Associated Press

“Whether or not you grew up with gospel music, you’ll find that this collection of songs is both warm and heartfelt.”—Glide

“Fusing nine spirituals with long haired country-boy swagger, Cobb captures the central place worship tunes hold in music of all kinds”—Nashville Lifestyles

“Although the song might at first sound more at home in a honky-tonk than a Sunday service, Cobb imbues its ‘Hallelujah, Amen,’ chorus with a sacred spirituality”—Rolling Stone

“One of Georgia’s finest…the record promises to be an instant classic” —The Bluegrass Situation

“Exquisite simplicity”—The Boot

“Brent Cobb was made to sing gospel music”—Whiskey Riff

“a supercharged statement of faith that sounds like both a Saturday night roadhouse and Sunday morning church.”—Wide Open County

Although the album has been a long-time dream for Cobb, it has only come to fruition now due to a near-death experience in July 2020, when the vehicle that he was driving, with his young son inside, got T-boned at a rural four-way stop. Following the crash, Cobb found himself with a renewed outlook on life, remembering, “You just start piecing together how everything is sort of intentional…I’d always had it in the back of my mind to make a gospel album. That moment of clarity, of almost getting killed, made me think I should just make the gospel album now.”

A deeply personal project, And Now, Let’s Turn To Page… finds Cobb surrounded by those who mean the most to him, with his wife Layne, his mother Renee, his sister Alecia, his father Patrick and his cousin Dave all joining him on the closing track, “Blessed Be The Tie That Binds.” Additional musicians featured across the album include Brian Allen (bass), Mike Harris (guitar), Chris Powell (drums, percussion) and Philip Towns (keyboards) as well as special background vocals from Caylee Hammack (a fellow Ellaville, GA native), Anderson East and members of Antioch, a Georgia-based gospel group led by Cobb’s father.

The new album adds to an already notable career for the Grammy-nominated artist following the release of 2016’s Shine On Rainy Day, 2018’s Providence Canyon and most recently, 2020’s Keep ‘Em On They Toes. Released last fall to widespread acclaim, Rolling Stone praises the album asserting, “his most down-home record yet…if 2018’s nostalgic Providence Canyon was Cobb pining for the Peach State of his youth, Keep ‘Em on They Toes is him happy at home in the present,” while proclaims, “realistic, humorous, lyric-driven songwriting…highlights Cobb’s tales of individualism and honesty with peerless precision” and Vice declares, “as strong of a songwriter as ever.” Moreover, Cobb released his first children’s book, Little Stuff, this past June, which was written as a reflection on what’s truly important in life and was inspired by Cobb’s song of the same name from Keep ‘Em On They Toes.

Cobb has earned nominations for Best Americana Album at the 60th GRAMMY Awards and Emerging Artist of the Year at the 2017 Americana Honors & Awards. He has also been featured on “CONAN,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and NPR Music’s “Tiny Desk Concert” series and has toured extensively across the world including numerous performances as part of Chris Stapleton’s “All-American Road Show.”
