All Music Guide - Robert L. Doerschuk
Through more than 100 appearances on The Grand Ole Opry, Elizabeth Cook built strong ties to the audience most likely to respond to her debut album. Her voice throughout Hey Y'all begs comparison to classic country divas such as Loretta Lynn and especially Dolly Parton, to whom Cook pays good-humored tribute on "Dolly." Her nasal intonation and Southern lilt bear the ring of authenticity and her writing bypasses contemporary distractions in order to connect directly to a more conservative aesthetic.

All Music Guide - Robert L. Doerschuk
Through more than 100 appearances on The Grand Ole Opry, Elizabeth Cook built strong ties to the audience most likely to respond to her debut album. Her voice throughout Hey Y'all begs comparison to classic country divas such as Loretta Lynn and especially Dolly Parton, to whom Cook pays good-humored tribute on "Dolly." Her nasal intonation and Southern lilt bear the ring of authenticity and her writing bypasses contemporary distractions in order to connect directly to a more conservative aesthetic. The results, always agreeable, can be startling when Cook throws a lyrical curve: The word "virginity" clangs like a dinner bell on the last line of "Demon," a finger-wag warning set to a honky tonk saunter. The classic old-time harmonies and medium-tempo rockabilly sway of "Blue Shades," the cameo monologue by Bill Anderson on the barroom lament "Don't Bother Me," the steel guitars that slither through several tracks, the unabashed if predictable gospel hand-clapper "God's Got a Plan," the infectious barn-dance hook of "Stupid Things," and above all her thrilling rendition of Jessi Colter's "I'm Not Lisa" all affirm the power of unadulterated old-time country and Cook's complete command of this idiom.

    This is a must album

    I had not heard of Elizabeth Cook until I saw her on the " Imus in the morning" talk show. The song she sang was "You Move Too Fast". I was so enthralled by her beauty and her voice and the lyrics to this song I made a mental and written note to myself to check her CD, "Hey Y'all" to listen and decide if there were any other songs on the CD that I liked to determine whether I should purchase it. I was not only convinced but compelled to buy it because I could not find any song she sang on this CD that I disliked. Her voice is as strong and beautiful as any I have heard in a long while. No regrets will be found by the purchaser of this album. Simply put, it is FANTASTIC.
