Feeling a bit camera shy


When you think about country music greatness, artists like Dolly Parton and Merle Haggard come to mind. These are artists that exhibit undeniable depth and an ability to communicate truths in the framework of traditional music. These are artists that deserve the critical acclaim that they receive, but also engender the love of the fans that just want to hear a great country song.

Though it’s certainly too soon to suggest that Elizabeth Cook belongs in the company of a Haggard or a Parton, she’s certainly off to a good start. She is equally at ease in front of the country music faithful as she is on the critics’ lists. She has become a fan favorite at The Grand Ole Opry, having made over 200 appearances, while also garnering high praise from publications like No Depression, who compared her to Parton and Americana icon Julie Miller, while stating that she is “an artist to whom attention must be paid.”

Elizabeth comes by her country roots honestly, having been raised by two country musicians. Her mother was a singer that met her father on the country circuit in Florida. Her father was the band leader for the Florida State Prison Country Band, where he spent 11 years for moonshining. Elizabeth began singing at the age of 4, and released her first single at the age of 8. By the time she was in college, she had put singing on the back burner to pursue a degree and subsuquent career in accounting. Her job at Price Waterhouse took her to Nashville, where she began to write and perform in addition to her auditing responsibilities. Music eventually won out, and she landed a publishing deal, released an independent album, which led to a recording contract with Warner Brothers. Her WB record was released at a time of great turmoil in the company and was underpromoted, leading her to ask for her release. She recorded another independent record, the critically acclaimed "This Side Of The Moon". She tours regularly and will be opening dates this fall for Nanci Griffith.
