Brent Cobb Lands His “Bucket List” Gig

"Mother Church," here he comes...

Talk about a show announcement worth shouting from the rooftops!

Brent Cobb announced yesterday (July 8th) that he’ll headline the world famous Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee on December 5th for the first time in his career.

“Headlining the Ryman has been on my bucket list since I first started playing music.”

-Brent Cobb

Known affectionately as the “Mother Church of Country Music,” the Ryman is regarded as one of the most famous concert venues in the world and the original home of the Grand Ole Opry, the longest running radio show in music history. From Hank Williams, Sr., Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash and Elvis to Coldplay, Harry Styles, Lizzo and even The Foo Fighters, music’s biggest artists and icons have played the sacred space in its 130-year existence.

Now, Cobb gets to take his turn center stage with support from openers Joshua Ray Walker and Maggie Antone.

It will no doubt be a big moment for Walker, too, who has been off of a consistent touring schedule this year while seeking treatment for stage three colon cancer. A week ago, the singer shared that his July 20th show at the Kessler Theatre in Dallas would be his final show before finishing chemo on August 7th.

When revealing the updated details of his cancer diagnosis and treatment plan back in January of this year, Walker shared that his prognosis was good and that he was “optimistic” about his recovery. Over the last several months, the singer has staged one-off shows as his health has allowed. Fans, including Cobb himself, are delighted to see him well enough to be back in action.
