Singer-songwriter Brent Cobb has renewed his deal with Carnival Music. Cobb signed the first publishing deal of his career with Carnival in 2009.

Cobb has written songs for a growing cadre of Nashville heavy hitters, including Little Big Town’s “Stay All Night” and “Pavement Ends”; “Tailgate Blues” by Luke Bryan; Kenny Chesney’s “Don’t It”; Miranda Lambert’s “Old Shit”; “Grandpa’s Farm,” recorded by both Frankie Ballard and David Nail; “Go Outside and Dance” by Eli Young Band; and Kellie Pickler’s “Rockway.” Lee Ann Womack, the Oak Ridge Boys, Charlie Worsham, and others have all cut his songs as well.

Produced by his cousin Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson, Jamey Johnson, Chris Stapleton), Cobb’s album Shine On Rainy Day (Low Country Sound/Elektra Records) drops Oct. 7.

“Historically, it is the song and the songwriter that pump the blood through country music. Brent is a songwriter who stuck to his principles and followed no trends. He has written songs with lyrics, melody, and purpose, and that earned him a following that’s growing,” Carnival Music’s Frank Liddell says. “The most exciting thing may be that he just keeps getting better. All of us at Carnival are honored and fired up to be part of the continuing journey that is Brent Cobb.”

“We’ve been together a pretty good while,” Cobb says. “Carnival is more than just my publisher. We’re family—every quirky last one of us. I’m very proud to be a part of it.”
