Counting Crows singer Adam Duritz is giving a big thumbs up to Mandy Moore’s latest album ‘Coverage’ and got mutual friend Mary-Louise Parker, who stared with Moore in ‘Saved’, to relay his praise for the album of covers. He writes, “Not that I didn’t already think she was probably a cool chick. Mary-Louise had been saying that since last year when they did ‘Saved’ together. As if it wasn’t enough that she got all choked up when she heard I liked the record because she’s such a huge CC fan. As if all that wasn’t enough, she makes this record on her own and basically dares them not to put it out. C’mon. Can I get some love here? This is the girl you’ve all been waiting for. She is way cooler than I am ever going to be. I hope you can all hear her.”
