July 26, 2010
Christian recording star, David L Cook took home his sixth career win recently at the Emmy Awards. David won for his work as an arranger/composer for his musical piece, “Meet Me at the Crossroads. The song was used as the theme song for the television series, New South Crossings which was filmed in Charlotte, North Carolina. Cook won the Emmy in 2008 for his work on the series scores and audio track.
“Meet Me at the Crossroads,” was penned by Cook and his writing partner Zach Roberts. Cook said that he and Roberts wrote the song over the telephone and that it was just a simple song that lets people know that no matter where you come from, the color of your skin, what religion you are, that there is a place where everyone is the same. If we will drop our pride and prejudices and meet each other in a common place, we could all get along and live in harmony.
Cook who is no stranger to the Emmys said, “I am very humbled that people like my work enough to acknowledge me in such a way. I just hope I can continue to write good music and show people that I have the heart to do it.”
Cook, who resides in North Carolina, comes from the famous Cook Family Singers, who made their way into people’s hearts on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry with the Carter Family and so many others. David was only five years old when he made his first appearance and has been onstage and continues to thrill audiences to this very day. The family group retired from the stage in 1980.
