Elizabeth Cook On World Cafe

For the East Nashville songwriter, a recent string of family crises inspired some dark new songs.
Grand Ole Opry member and East Nashville singer-songwriter Elizabeth Cook has dealt with many personal challenges, including deaths in her family and her own divorce, over the last few years. The upside is that those experiences provided the seeds for some new songs. Cook, who also hosts the satellite-radio show Apron Strings, has never shied away from writing about her family - whether it's her father, who ran moonshine before becoming a welder, or her sister, who's battled heroin addiction. She continues to sing about family on Exodus Of Venus, a darker album that rocks harder than she has in the past.
