More About

With her charming Deep South voice and aw-shucks manner, Nashville chanteuse and disc jockey Elizabeth Cook comes off as a pixie-ish, barefoot, girl-next-door country cutie. But Cook, whose father did a stretch in prison, comes with a dark side that one seldom encounters in anyone trying to do business with Nashville. While she is best known for her hillbilly feminist anthem "Sometimes It Takes Balls to Be a Woman," her 2010 release Welder, with guests Dwight Yoakam, Buddy Miller and longtime supporter Rodney Crowell, met with considerable critical acclaim, and songs like "Heroin Addict Sister" and "El Camino" gave her some additional street credibility with the not-so-mainstream crowd. With more than 300 Grand Ole Opry appearances and several international tours behind her, Cook remains one of a handful of women on the cusp of true Nashville stardom à la Miranda Lambert.
