LEXINGTON, Ky. — GRAMMY-nominated musician Brent Cobb will kick off his extensive “Sucker For a Good Time Tour” headline tour in 2019 with stops in Lexington on March 29 and Louisville on March 30, 2019. Cobb will also perform supporting Tedeschi Trucks Band at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville on Jan. 31.
The new tour follows Cobb’s extensive run as part of “Chris Stapleton’s All-American Road Show,” which recently stopped at Rupp Arena on Oct. 27 and included a performance from Cobb earlier in the day at CD Central. The tour also celebrates the release of his critically acclaimed new record, Providence Canyon, which was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb and is out now on Low Country Sound/Elektra Records.
The new album and tour follow a breakthrough few years for Cobb, who was nominated for Best Americana Album at the 60th GRAMMY Awards for his major label debut, Shine On Rainy Day. Since the album’s release, Cobb was also nominated for Emerging Artist of the Year at the 2017 Americana Honors & Awards and made his television debut on CONAN.
Cobb was born in Americus, Georgia, about an hour east of Columbus, in the rural south-central part of the state.
