Elizabeth Cook is one of a kind. Her great blonde looks and honky-tonk country might make her seem akin to pop-country singers, but Cook has the kind of sass and blatant song-writing that sometimes aren't radio-friendly. She's sharp and witty, and it's all very catchy.

Her fifth studio album, Welder, is a nostalgic collection of heavily-accented country with a ready supply of Cook's characteristic humor.
