Stacey Cook of U.S. Ski Team Sings the Band Perry, Gets Their Support [Watch]
The Band Perry‘s ‘Better Dig Two’ has made it to the Olympics, but it’s not what you think!
Stacey Cook of the U.S. Ski Team covered the trio’s hit during a day off in Sochi, Russia earlier this week, posting video of the performance on Facebook.
In the acoustic delivery, Cook was joined by Laurenne Ross and Jacqueline Wiles, all donning their very best red, white and blue. After the Olympians shared their short performance on social media, it didn’t take long for the Band Perry to uncover the clip, posting a simple “WOW!!!” to express their excitement.
The Band Perry were apparently fans and supporters of the female Olympian even before her ‘Better Dig Two’ tribute. Before the video was posted, the group tweeted their support of Cook on Twitter:

Cook saw the tweet and said it came at a time when she truly needed it. The 29-year-old responded to the group by saying, “Wow! Perfect timing. Felt a little down about today’s race and then BAM! Back on top because @thebandperry is on my team! Thanks guys!!!”
The Olympian competed in the Alpine Skiing Ladies’ Downhill competition with a time of 1:43.05. Cook, a California native, specializes in speed events and has been skiing she was four years old — when she’s not listening to the Band Perry, of course.
