Throughout her career, Amy Cook has been able to count on her peers to help her out. Early on, she was tapped by Alejandro Escovedo to open for him on a national tour, and he later produced her 2010 effort Let The Light In. Her latest album, Summer Skin, boasts an impressive list of collaborators, including Robert Plant, Patty Griffin, Ben Kweller, David Garza, and more. But make no mistake: Even with all her friends’ assistance, Cook is a singular talent in her own right. We’re extremely honored she agreed to play KUTX Guest DJ for an hour. She loves Summertime so much, she decided to theme out her playlist.
Tune in to KUTX 98.9 this Saturday, September 14th at 6pm to hear Amy Cook’s favorite summer songs.
