Corinne Cook’s latest album Yes I Can produced and engineered by Denny Martin features edgy contemporary country rock songs with a pop sensibility.
Cook likes to call her albums “emotional rollercoasters, snapshots of life”. She continues the ride with her songs touching on several moods and emotions. From the empowering, anthem-styled title track “Yes I Can”, where Cook sings about four American icons whose triumphs deeply impacted the way our culture viewed women to the harmonica-tinged, blues-rock driven “Before He Cheats”-styled revenge romp “Last Thing To Go” and “Mr. Mechanic,” a clever, whimsical metaphor driven romp about her husband. The album also includes “One Box of Tissues,” a spirited post breakup “to-do” list, and the heart wrenching song, “Trying Not To Die,” about finding the strength to survive the terrible loss of a relationship. The mid-tempo country rocker “Devil’s Heaven” is about the checkered lives of those who work in strip clubs, and as a military veteran and American, Corinne also finds emotional resonance in the collection’s final two songs. The poignant “Seven White Stars,” a saga of a military widow who just lost a son in combat and the power ballad “Those Few Dreams,” an anthem where she finds hope and fresh dreams for America despite these troubled times and a loss of innocence.
