Ricky Cook gives C&I readers a first listen to the new track “It’s All in the Kiss,” off of his upcoming album, Thanks a Lot, Loretta.
Dust off that time machine — country crooner Ricky Cook’s “It’s All in the Kiss” will transport you to a time when traditional country music soared. The song’s theme of true love is a subject you’d expect to hear on any country album, but what sends you back to the ’90s is Cook’s twangy voice paired with continuous melodic beats and whimsical guitar licks. The result is a track that stands strong alongside Alan Jackson and George Strait.
“‘It’s All in the Kiss’ is a reminder to all of us in love that it ain’t all about the fancier things in life. You fell in love with a kiss, and you’ll stay in love with a kiss,” says Cook.
Born and raised in Oakdale, Tennessee, Cook has always integrated life and traditional country music. On April 2, the retired horse trainer puts it all together with the release of his debut album, Thanks a Lot, Loretta.
