Experiencing live music in a family-friendly environment can sometimes be a challenge in the Azalea City. Moe’s Original BBQ in Daphne fills this void with live bands and delicious barbecue set in an environment that embraces music lovers of all ages.
This weekend, Moe’s Original BBQ welcomes the country music of Atmore native Ricky Crook. Southern sounds have filled Crook’s ears since his childhood. His family filled their Sunday afternoons with porch jams at his grandparents’ house. Over the years, Crook began to find his creative inspirations in country artists such as Vern Gosdin, Buck Owens and Johnny Bush, as well as rock icons like Lynyrd Skynyrd and Creedence Clearwater Revival. Currently, Crook is showcasing his talents on the Sherrick-Nashville music label.
Since 2017, Crook has maintained a steady release of singles and EPs. His first studio efforts such as “In My Truck” and “For Anything” are flashbacks to the grand country music of the ’80s and ’90s that made Randy Travis and Garth Brooks famous. The releases that followed are in the same vein. Crook demonstrates a perfect balance between stomping honky-tonk anthems and heartfelt country ballads. Meanwhile, his lyrical reflections are delivered through smooth, rich transitions between tenor and baritone. Crook should be a hit with country fans who lean more toward the traditional than the modern.
