Country traditionalist Ricky Cook was born and raised in tiny Oakdale, TN. Influenced by Conway Twitty, Dolly Parton, and its namesake, Loretta Lynn, his "Thanks a Lot, Loretta" is rooted in traditional country but soars into the mainstream airspace. While successfully training American Saddlebred horses, Cook's passion for honest, straightforward country music was fueled by striking a friendship with musician-producer J.P. Pennington, of the country band Exile. Recorded in Nashville, TN, "Thanks A Lot, Loretta" marks Cook’s recording debut.
