Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

ROSS COOPER

GIVE IT TIME

2014-10-31

Ross Cooper is a native of Lubbock, Texas, that wonderful place that produces musicians like some Texas towns produce oil. 

Cooper was born into a rodeo family, and had dual careers as a bronco rider and a musician until a knee injury forced him to give up the former and concentrate on storytelling through song and music. 

His style is smooth Americana, though a certain cowboy bravado certainly comes through on Give It Time. 

Give It Time was self produced and released in the summer of 2013. 

While maybe not intentional, this album draws heavily on influences from the Tim McGraw-style country that makes this easy listening and palatable for some and a deal breaker for others.

The track to listen to here is " Girl From the Pines". It's got a little bit of rockabilly swing emanating through the lyrics and guitar and is a memorable tune.
