Elizabeth Cook (born 1972 in Wildwood, Florida) is an American country music singer who made her debut on the Grand Ole Opry .

Elizabeth Cook made her Grand Ole Opry debut on March 17, 2000, appearing repeatedly thereafter -- a remarkable achievement considering that, at the time, she was an indie artist with no radio airplay. But such was the excitement generated by her clear, beautiful voice, strong songwriting ability, and live performances, all of which have drawn comparisons to younger, critically respected artists like Kelly Willis and legends such as Dolly Parton.

Cook was born in Wildwood, Fla. Her West Virginia-born mother played guitar and mandolin and sang on local radio shows. Her father, a Georgia native, also performed country music and served jail time for running moonshine. Upon his release, he and Elizabeth's mother played in local bands together, eventually marrying. Elizabeth, born in 1972, moved to Nashville in her 20s and quickly got a publishing deal. Demos recorded between 1997 and 2000 comprised her self-titled, independently released debut album, which showcased her formidable songwriting ability and featured such well-known Music City musicians as Tim Carroll, Kenny Vaughan, and Rick Schell.

Atlantic Records signed Cook soon after its release, and she began working on her major-label debut. Hey Y'All appeared in 2002, but she parted ways with the label shortly thereafter. She independently issued the album This Side of the Moon in 2005. Balls followed in 2007.
