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."

That probably made Jinks feel pretty darn good about how life has been... »»»
Concert Review: Fogerty lives up to his past – Woodstock 50 may never have happened, but that original monumental event was certainly in the air at John Fogerty's My 50 Year Trip Tour before, during and after.

Chip Kinman celebrates brother, career on "Sounds Like Music" For a brief moment last summer, the news of Tony Kinman's death was, if not greatly exaggerated, then at least fortuitously premature. The roots rock icon, known for his work in The Dils, Rank and File, Blackbird and Cowboy Nation with his younger brother Chip, had been diagnosed with cancer in March 2018,... »»»
