ELIZABETH COOK - SLOW PAIN

Elizabeth Cook is no stranger to spinning struggle into success.  Her two most recent studio albums, each with immense emotion and story behind them, have placed within the top 50 on US country charts.  Florida born-and-raised Cook has appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman multiple times since 2012, and has performed at the Grand Ole Opry stage more than 300 times.  She has also been nominated for awards four times for her music, twice for her Sirius XM radio show, “Elizabeth Cook’s Apron Strings,” and once for Ameripolitan Music Awards’ “Outlaw Female,” which she won in 2014.  

Cook’s storied past takes a hard left with her June 2016 release, Exodus of Venus.  She says, “I’m not trying to be the good girl anymore, and that brought some joy to all of it. I almost care more – or different.  These songs are more poignant. They’re honest, and all about compassion or grace. For myself, and from a place of experience. Not that any of it was wrong, but I look back and have pride for all that happened and what I’ve survived.”  Check out her video for “Slow Pain” now, a smoldering track with vocals that are mysteriously enchanting and slightly reminiscent of Stevie Nicks.  Elizabeth Cook is currently in the middle of a Fall US tour.
