Mountain Fever signs Cook

Friday, June 9, 2017 – Bluegrass artist Amanda Cook signed with Mountain Fever Records, the label announced today.

The Florida resident will release her debut, "Deep Water," on Nov. 3.

Cook, from Jay, Fla., acquired a love of bluegrass from her father, who played banjo. In early 2007, Cook formed bluegrass group High Cotton with her father. In 2013, Cook went out on her own and released her first solo album "One Stop Along the Road." She has developed a following in Florida, Georgia and Alabama.

"We've watched Amanda grow so quickly as an artist the past couple of years," says Mountain Fever Records president, Mark Hodges. "She has everything it takes to be one of the top artists in the country, and we're proud she has chosen to take us along on the journey."

"I am humbled and honored to join the Mountain Fever Records family, and I'm looking forward to working closely with Mark Hodges and his staff. I anticipate wonderful things for the future of my music with this great group behind me."

Don Henley announced from the outset, though, how the group continues to tour primarily so it can keep the Eagles' many great songs alive.... »»»
Concert Review: Lovett could not have scripted it any better – Cerritos is a fair distance from Hollywood, but Lyle Lovett, who has accumulated a long list of acting credits, sometimes seemed like he was giving a company town performance this night. Maybe it was because Paul Reiser, the "Mad About You" star, introduced Lovett with a funny bit about what some of the man's songs mean (or don't mean).... »»»
