The song is from the Grammy nominated singer, songwriter and performer’s highly anticipated new album, Providence Canyon, out May 11th on Atlantic Records. (pre-order).
Recorded at Nashville’s RCA Studio A with Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb, the album features eleven songs including ‘King of Alabama’, of which Rolling Stone proclaims, “Come for the raw twang and countrified croon; stay for the Thin Lizzy guitarmonies that punctuate the bridge, proving that Cobb still isn’t unafraid to push beyond his genre’s borders.”
The accompanying video, which Rolling Stone asserts, “adds an appropriately surreal touch to Cobb’s tale of unruffled heroism and blue-collar nobility,” can be watched/shared HERE.
Each digital pre-order comes with an immediate download of ‘King of Alabama’ and ‘Mornin’s Gonna Come’ as well as ‘Ain’t A Road Too Long’, which debuted last year. Cobb’s video for ‘Mornin’s Gonna Come’, recently premiered with Relix, who call it “awesome,” and further that the album “maintains the warm, engaging spirit of its predecessor.” Watch the video HERE.
In celebration of the album, Cobb’s Ain’t A Road Too Long tour is currently underway, featuring special guest Savannah Conley. Following these headline dates, Cobb will once again join Chris Stapleton on his All-American Road Show this summer, including dates at L.A.’s The Forum, Chicago’s Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre and New York’s Madison Square Garden.
Cobb has also been confirmed for The Long Road Festival at Stanford Hall in Leicestershire, taking place from the 7th to 9th of September, with further UK tour dates to be announced very soon.
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.
Released in 2016 to overwhelming acclaim, Uncut said of the album, “the work of a man who’s finally found his calling”, while Mojo said, “It would be a true tragedy if we had to wait another decade for more of his intimate, timeless music.”
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. In addition to his work as a recording artist, Cobb is widely respected as a songwriter garnering cuts by Lee Ann Womack, Luke Bryan, The Oak Ridge Boys, Little Big Town, Miranda Lambert and more.
