Morgane Stapleton with Chris Stapleton’s rendition of “You Are My Sunshine” is nominated for “Musical Event of the Year” at “The 50th Annual CMA Awards.” The song is from Southern Family—a new compilation produced and conceived by two-time Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb—which is out on Low Country Sound/Elektra Records (purchase here).
In addition to Morgane and Chris Stapleton, the all-star album features recordings by Zac Brown, Brandy Clark, Brent Cobb, Anderson East, Jason Isbell, Shooter Jennings, Jamey Johnson, Miranda Lambert, Rich Robinson, John Paul White and Holly Williams.
Comprised of songs rooted in country, blues, folk and rock, the record is inspired by the post Civil War concept album White Mansions, written by British performer Paul Kennerley, produced by Glyn Johns and featuring musicians like Waylon Jennings and Eric Clapton.
Born in Savannah, GA and based in Nashville, Cobb has produced records for some of the most influential artists over the last few years, including critically acclaimed releases from Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell, Anderson East, Sturgill Simpson, Jamey Johnson, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Brent Cobb, Lori McKenna, Lindi Ortega, Shooter Jennings, Waylon Jennings, A Thousand Horses, Houndmouth, HoneyHoney and Lake Street Dive.
Earlier this year, Cobb was recognized with two awards at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards—“Best Country Album” (Stapleton’s Traveller) and “Best Americana Album” (Isbell’s Something More Than Free). Additionally, he won a last year’s CMA Award for “Album of the Year” (Stapleton’s Traveller) and the 2014 Americana Music Award for “Album of the Year” (Isbell’s Southeastern) as well as Grammy nominations in 2011 and 2007 for “Best Country Album” (Johnson’s The Guitar Song and That Lonesome Song).
