Cobb will "Keep 'Em On They Toes"

Wednesday, July 15, 2020 – Brent Cobb will release his new album, "Keep 'Em On They Toes," on Oct. 2 on his own label, Ol' Buddy Records, via Thirty Tigers.

Produced by Brad Cook (Waxahatchie, Bon Iver, Hiss Golden Messenger), the album features 10 new songs including the title track, which was written by Cobb and his wife Layne and is debuting today. The song's video, which was directed by Christian Hansen, is available as well.

Of the song, Cobb said, "To try and not infiltrate the listener's spirit's own interpretation of 'Keep 'Em On They Toes,' I'll just say that it was initially inspired by the birth of my son. With that said, it's a mantra that I live by. One that I hope anyone could live by. That mantra is, if it's good for your own heart, and you got a good heart, do it. Do it whether folks see it coming or not. Live your own life. Be happy."

"Keep 'Em On They Toes" was created after Cobb moved back to his home state of Georgia after several years between Nashville and Los Angeles a decision that greatly influenced his songwriting.

"To me, listening to this album feels like I'm sitting there with somebody, having a conversation," Cobb said. "I would hope that it feels like sitting with an old friend you haven't seen in a while. There's nothing like being alone and listening to an album that is quiet and conversational - like those old records by Jerry Lee Lewis, Roger Miller, or Willie Nelson. I hope my music is that way to somebody now."

The new album release follows 2018's "Providence Canyon" and 2016's "Shine On Rainy Day."

The track list is:
1. Keep 'Em On They Toes
2. Shut Up And Sing
3. Good Times And Good Love
4. Sometimes I'm A Clown
5. This Side Of The River
6. Dust Under My Rug
7. Soapbox
8. When You Go
9. The World Is Ending
10. Little Stuff

CD review - Keep 'Em On They Toes Not sure we've seen the term 'minimalist country' but that's a fair description for Brent Cobb's artistry, especially on "Keep 'Em On They Toes," one that he prefers to call 'quiet and conversational.' His fourth album is certainly reflective as Cobb and his family moved back to his native Georgia a few years ago. The locale seems to suit him, and it's at the heart of these 10 songs where he chooses to write about his thoughts and feelings as ...
CD review - Shine on Rainy Day Brent Cobb is an unpretentious sort of guy, and that in itself makes him an unusual entity in an entertainment arena built on flash and sparkle. That at least is the attitude he purveys on "Shine on Rainy Day," an album that takes its cues from everyday aspirations. The songs center on the simpler things that affect us all, whether the solace of living life in the country or the everyday challenges that all too often take a toll. It's that ying and yang that that's most ...
