In two-and-a-half minutes, Elizabeth Cook (who's she?) will be singing a Blind Willie Johnson tune on David Letterman (heard of him).

She's apparently some Hollywood-supported, Florida-spawned country singer, whose thrice-convicted father became a welder inside, went mobile with his gear after release and became very successful with Florida farmers who needed their pipelines repaired in the dark of the night before their crops froze.

He could have called it iWeld then without drawing a lawsuit from Apple!

She seems nice.  Anyway, she and her band performed a version of BWJ's "If I Had My Way." 

It's good to be reminded of his music's persistent attraction.

Elizabeth Cook is also host of a regular program on SiriusXM's Outlaw Country channel. The program is called Apron Strings, and she plays some interesting stuff. This is the same channel that runs Hardcore Troubadour (Steve Earl) and the Buddy and Jim Show (Buddy Miller and Jim Lauderdale). I'm glad to hear she's discovered BWJ.
