POETS AND PROPHETS

A SALUTE TO LEGENDARY SONGWRITER

ROGER COOK

Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …

He was born in Bristol, England, but Roger Cook is a Nashville songwriting legend, and his list of credits is exceptionally varied, including hits in rock, pop and country. Cook wrote or co-wrote The Hollies’ “Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress,” The Fortunes’ “Here Comes That Rainy Day Feeling Again” and “This Golden Ring,” Don Williams’ “I Believe in You” and “Love Is on a Roll,” Crystal Gayle’s “Talking in Your Sleep” and Andy Williams’ “Home Lovin’ Man,” to name a few. Oh, and another little song you may have heard of: The New Seekers’ “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing (in Perfect Harmony).” (Unless my memory fails me, the original version didn’t include the line, “I’d like to buy the world a Coke.”) The program features a performance by Cook and an interview, illustrated with vintage photos, film footage and recordings. He’ll also sign commemorative Hatch Show Print posters. 1:30 p.m. at the Country Music Hall of Fame
