One of Georgia’s finest is accomplishing a lifelong dream. Brent Cobb, who’s admired as a singer-songwriter, Grammy nominee, and general badass, is releasing his first gospel album, And Now, Let’s Turn to Page…. The record promises to be an instant classic, featuring old gospel standards and hymns sung by Cobb and his loved ones. Selections include “Old Rugged Cross,” “Softly and Tenderly,” and “When It’s My Time.” He’s also released an artistically innovative music video for “When It’s My Time” created by Curtis Wayne Millard.
To get another glimpse of what the record will be like, look no further than the album credits; Nashville heavyweights like Brian Allen and Mike Harris are lined up next to Cobb’s family, who just so happen to be great musicians in their own rights. Caylee Hammack and Anderson East round out the lineup on a record that is undoubtedly going to be a standout. “I’ve always wanted to make a southern gospel album because it’s what I come from, but also it used to seem like a rite of passage for country singers to make a gospel album,” Cobb says. “I’m just trying to carry on that torch.”
