See Brent Cobb Depict Home Life, Georgia Beauty in ‘Come Home Soon’ Video

Live performance clip is the first of three filmed in Cobb’s native state

Brent Cobb celebrates both family bonds and the natural beauty of his native Georgia in a new three-part performance series. In the first video, premiering today, Cobb strips down his song “Come Home Soon” — which gives the series its name — and sings the homesick track, off his album Providence Canyon, against the shimmer of a lake at dusk.

But it’s the inclusion of Cobb’s daughter Lyla that elevates the clip above just promotional content. Director Chris Phelps captures the unguarded relationship between father and daughter, as the pair fish together, sing songs, and, in the capper, indulge in a bedtime story from that beloved children’s poet — Jerry Reed. When Lyla asks for a story, Cobb teasingly chooses to tell her the story of “Amos Moses.”

“The ‘Come Home Soon’ series is my continued love letter to Georgia. I come and go but it stays the same. It’s as constant as the Flint River. I trust it to keep my family safe while I’m gone and to help raise my children right,” Cobb says. “Chris stayed on me about locations for different scenes. He couldn’t understand that everywhere down there is the perfect shot. You really can’t mess it up. The moment he pulled up, he got it. Then he made it into a beautiful short movie.

“We wanted to capture the warmth and spirit of not only the area but also of the people,” he continues. “There’s a real light down there. I believe this series lets folks see it the way I do.”

“Man, I’m scared I might forget who I am too if don’t come home soon,” he sings in “Come Home Soon,” a lament about his life on the road. With this ultra-personal series, Cobb is determined to not let that happen.
