My name is Jason Lee Cook, a singer/songwriter. I'm from a small town just outside Charleston SC. A little town called Walterboro, we are just about an hour from anywhere, Columbia, Savannah, Hilton Head, or Charleston. Country music is the music that I grew up listening to. My earliest memory of music were some old records that we had, it was a Southern Gospel group and the records were my dad's mothers. I remember listening because, there was just something about the live sound that intrigued me.
Performing is something I always loved doing, there once was a picture of me I wish I could find, I was about seven or eight and my dad had bought me this little guitar and mic stand combo. When you clicked on the buttons on the stand, these little lights would light up. Man, I loved that little thing, I would rock out to Mel McDaniels, Waylon Jennings or whatever was on the radio at the time.
It was growing up here in a small town that has allowed me to write the songs I write. Music has been pretty much apart of my life and sometimes my saving grace. It has allowed me to express myself, my feelings, prayers, and thoughts.
As a singer/songwriter, country music is the genre I fall under. But, it reaches much further than that. It is Southern Rock, Gospel, Folk, and a little bit of Rock and Roll. When writing I don’t think of a genre, it is pretty much whatever my mood or feeling is that day. I write a lot about my life, the good the bad and the ugly, lol
Some songs, move your feet, some move the heart and there are some that go deeper and move your soul. We all have been effected by music in some way shape, or form and I want to write songs that do that.
Have you ever heard a song come on the radio and it takes you back to a place in time? The bridge says, "it wasn't the words and it wasn't the music, it was love and baby we were dancing to it" That pretty much defines this song in a nutshell.
Country to the bone is a song that takes me back to listening to the old Alabama songs and singing as loud as I could. This song has a little bit of Southern Rock and Country, mixed into one. The fiddle drives it home at the end.
If you have ever dealt with a daily struggle of addiction, then you can relate to this song. Yes you may not be perfect and yes you may never walk on water, but that aside by excepting Jesus into your heart, you can allow Him to break those chains. Chains of bondage, pride, lust, drugs or whatever.
If you grew up, playing in the mud, loving 4x4's and having a good time yo will love this new song.
It is crazy how a song can come on the radio and take you back to a place or a feeling. I wrote this because of that feeling I get every time I look in my wife eyes.
