While growing up in Georgia, Brent Cobb developed his own interpretation of tunes.

“One of the first songs I ever sang was in Sunday School, and it was ‘There’s a Tear in My Beer’ by Hank Williams, Sr.,” he told NPR’s Morning Edition. He’d been asked to sing a song of his choosing – and it wasn’t specified that a hymn was preferred. “My mom was probably not the proudest.”

On Lynyrd Skynyrd’s second studio album Second Helping, “Swamp Music” was made available in 1974. Ronnie Van Zant and Ed King wrote the song. Enjoy Brent Cobb’s superb rendition of “Swamp Music” by Lynyrd Skynyrd.
