9. Brent Cobb – ‘Keep ‘Em On They Toes’
Not one of the Nashville crop, Brent Cobb made us all stand and take notice with ‘Keep ‘Em On They Toes’. Part personal record, part social commentary, the album sees Cobb at his boldest on tracks like ‘Shut Up and Sing’, ‘Sometimes I’m a Clown’ and the fantastic ‘Soapbox’. A truly gifted artist, Cobb should by rights be one of the most revered artists in the genre right now.
