Nashville-based, Texas-raised Americana artist Ross Cooper is touring to support his new release Chasing Old Highs throughout Texas and the Midwest in May and June. Today, he is featured as the “Artist of the Week” on Holler Country who featured the acoustic performance video of the title track ‘Chasing Old Highs”.
“…from the perspective of a rodeo champion, one who can’t keep up with the physical demands of the sport. He recorded a special acoustic version with his dog Jack sitting by his side – well, at least through the first verse. Pups buck to their own time, too.”
With a style akin to Robert Earl Keen and Townes Van Zandt, and tempered by a Springsteen-style spirit of the lost road, for Ross Cooper, songwriting has always been about painting those kind of very real pictures, capturing the moment the hill country fades into dirt and desert, or the moment a career turns from hope to despair. The 11-track record walks that dusty line between Texas and Tennessee, cactuses and river, atmosphere and emotion. It’s in a space all its own announcing a different kind of modern songwriter, one that’s not afraid to smile at the past.
