Cotton Valley Records (CVR) country tunesmith Mark Cooke wraps up a successful 2012 with the momentum he is receiving on his current radio release, “Stay With Me Tonight.” Cooke is receiving rave reviews from critics and radio about this love ballad tune which shows off his softer, sentimental side.

“…nothing on the record is less than strongly made and if you were looking for a new artist to keep track of; you may have found him in Mark Cooke. Solid meat and potatoes. Country music is what Living for the Weekend is all about.” - Roughstock
--------------------
“We are, as always, a support of Mark Cooke and his music!” – Jim Elliott, On-Air Personality, WOVK in Wheeling, WV
--------------------
“Mark Cooke…a good guy…love the song!” – John Bowen, Program Director/On-Air Personality, WKKW in Morgantown, WV
--------------------

Cooke’s previous hit, “Can’t Cheat in a Small Town,” climbed to #42 on the Music Row chart and #56 on the Billboard’s Indicator chart and the carefree country back roads groove, “Any Way the Wind Blows,” broke into the Top 60 on Billboard’s Country chart. These two hits, along with the current chart-topping single are featured on Cooke’s acclaimed EP Living for the Weekend, which was released earlier this year.

This talented crooner is produced by music veterans J. Gary Smith and John Smith. Smith and Smith are respected industry insiders that assisted in developing the careers of Lonestar, Andy Griggs, Darryl Singletary and Mindy McCready. J. Gary Smith has also scored motion pictures with legend Jerry Reed and Showtime cable series as well as projects for Johnny Cash, John Rich, Waylon Jennings and the Little River Band to name a few. Smith had this to add, “It is great to find an artist with such a natural country voice as Mark. The likability factor on this guy is through the roof, and we feel blessed to be the guys that get to start his career.”

Born and raised in East Texas, Cooke has shared the stage with country music veteran acts including Miranda Lambert, George Jones, John Rich, Chris Cagle, Whispering Bill Anderson, David Allan Coe, among others. With his dream coming true, Cooke's family and friends continue to support. Through all the good times and bad, he still is the same boy from East Texas who had a dream to write and sing country music. And, with the grace of God, Cooke continues to pursue the dream he has such passion for.
