ELIZABETH COOK RELEASES “GOSPEL PLOW” EP ON
JUNE 12THAND APPEARS ON
THE LATE SHOW ON JUNE
NASHVILLE, TN – In 2011, Elizabeth Cook was asked to participate in
Strawberry Music Festival’s Sunday morning gospel show. She reluctantly agreed,
but by the time she was halfway through her set, she was surprised by how much
she was moved by this music. Perhaps she shouldn’t have been; it reconnected her
with music that was central to her Florida upbringing. She was moved enough to
record a seven song EP of some of her favorite Southern Gospel songs (well, six
Gospel songs and a cover of Velvet Underground’s “Jesus”). The EP, titled
Gospel Plow, will be released on June 12th, the day before
she appears on The Late Show with David Letterman.
Cook and her band, husband Tim Carroll on guitar and Bones Hillman
(Midnight Oil) on bass, will be hitting the road this summer, adding a touch of
gospel to the proceedings. Full list of dates listed below.
In addition to all of her duties of writing, recording and touring Cook
also hosts “Apron Strings” on SiriusXM’s Outlaw Country, channel 60 that airs
Monday – Friday 10 am – 2pm eastern.
