…right as rain, ROSS COOPER Love Like the Old Days
by Walter Price
From his brilliantly authentic and well-received LP, ‘Lightning Heart’, Ross Cooper’s keeping-the-ole-flames-burning single “Love Like the Old Days” conjures up some real classic Keen and Strait-era Texas country.
Heartfelt and full of cherished moments, Cooper has been quoted about the track’s origin story, “I wanted to write a song about my wife and the type of relationship that our folks have. The type of marriage worth writing about. This song fell out. I knew it was going to be a special song from the moment we finished it. And the cherry on top of all of it was I got my wife, O’Neal (who swears up and down that she ‘can’t sing’), to sing harmony on the track, and she sounds beautiful.”
There’s an ever-increasing amount of alt-country/Americana offerings out here these days, but for the money, if you will—Take Ross Cooper’s ‘Lightning Heart’ for a drive, and if time is an issue, get started with the love can be forever “Love Like the Old Days”, here at the GTC.

“I’m a cowboy, and that’s always been a huge part of my ethos, and it’s absolutely inspired my songwriting, but at my core, I’m a writer and storyteller. It’s the part of me that has endured and makes me feel like I have a purpose. It’s so hard for me to pick a favorite on this album. Every song is a page out of my life that I’m excited to share with people.” – Ross Cooper (bio)
