Lewis Bailey has tickets to see Elizabeth Cook perform Saturday night at the Grand Ole Opry
Our pal Lewis Bailey of Bailey Mountain, Georgia, Tabloid Baby's mainline to country-western music, made a phone call to one of superstar friends and got himself Gold Circle seats for tomorrow night's show at the Grand Ole Opry, with a lineup including Ricky Scaggs, Terri Clark, James Otto and Elizabeth Cook. You remember Elizabeth Cook. She's the gal Lewis turned us on back in May as the latest next big thing in country-western music. Elizabeth Cook looked to be one smart alt-country hellcat, with album called Balls produced by Rodney Crowell and a debut single that made things clear by stretching out the title to Sometimes it Takes Balls to Be A Woman.
Lewis writes: "Cook has had very little play on CMT and GAC. Nashville can be a hard town."
And Elizabeth could be a hard fit. Heck, her latest single and video (above is a song from the Velvet Underground! But it does fit. The Opry Live show at the Ryman Auditorium will be televised tomorrow at 8 on GAC. And look for Lewis in the Gold Circle section. He's the handsome one without the hat.
