- The amazing Elizabeth Cook continues her never-ending tour supporting Welder and the fine folks over at Sirius XM are cutting her a break and letting her sleep in a little later by moving her popular radio show â€œApron Stringsâ€ to 10 am â€“ 2 pm eastern time. Cook says, â€œI feel like I’m abandoning an old lover, leaving my early birds. But it is my sincerest wishes that with the 10-2 show, â€œApron Stringsâ€ fans will find new ways to sneak and listen, and having more sleep, I will sneeze less on air.â€ Beginning on Wednesday, May 4, the Sirius XM Outlaw Country channel will move to channel 60 on both Sirius and XM radios, and Elizabeth Cook and her â€œApron Stringsâ€ show will now be heard from 10 am to 2 pm ET, Monday through Friday. For more information about additional channel changes go to siriusxm.com. Elizabeth has some new items in her store for her Beautiful Outlaw listeners. Check out Moonshine (aka her Dad) telling you about the store.
