Moonshining Daddy Helps Daughter Become Country Singer

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Rising alt-country singer Elizabeth Cook releases her new CD, This Side Of The Moon, tomorrow (May 17) but maybe it should be called “This Side Of The Moonshine.”

That’s because Cook’s dad spent 11 years in prison for making moonshine and that’s where he started his own musical career by forming a band in prison.

Cook was born after her dad got out of the slammer so she never got to taste his homemade liquor but says he did give her a taste of life as a musician – and plenty of stories that make for great country songs.

Although Cook’s daddy refuses to make any more moonshine because, as she puts it, “eleven years in jail convinced him it was illegal,” she has been trying to get him to design a still as a stage prop or make up some blueprints she can sell at shows along with T-shirts.
