The wait for new music from artists, especially artists we love can be some of the longest time periods ever for music fans. The clock speeds up any other time during one's life, but when waiting for new music, it seems like forever. Some are able to push two albums out within one year of each other while others have to wait a bit longer.
It's been six long years since we received a new album from Elizabeth Cook, and much like the wait for new Hayes Carll music, it's been a long wait. A lot has happened to Elizabeth over these past six years. Her conflict with getting new music out didn't come from label problems or a lack of a creative direction. It seemed like every time Elizabeth did want to record new music, something awful in her life happened. Over the past six years Elizabeth has suffered through six deaths of loved ones as well as a divorce and a stint in rehab. It sounds like the plotline to a good country song but it's the harsh reality Elizabeth faced.
