Amanda Cook is originally from Florida but currently lives in the Virginia Mountains. Amanda Cook acquired a love of bluegrass from her father, who played banjo throughout her childhood. In early 2007, Amanda formed the bluegrass group High Cotton with her father and received her first taste of performing, fueling a fire to record and tour professionally. In 2013, determined to create her unique sound, Amanda stepped out on her own and released her first solo album One Stop Along the Road. The self-released album brought Amanda her first radio chart success appearing on the Top 150 Roots Music Bluegrass Album Charts for 2014 and 2015. In addition, she achieved significant regional attention that furthered her desire to grow her brand by establishing a full touring band. Amanda Cook continues to garner chart success and critical acclaim. The Bluegrass Situation stated, “Amanda Cook has emerged as one of the most dynamic female bluegrass vocalists and bandleaders of today.”
