Co-written by Cook alongside her father, Larry Cook, and songwriters Michael Logen and Luke Sheets, “Airborne Ranger Infantry” permeated the ears of Country music listeners on Monday with an impressive total of 21 first week adds. Several of the vivid lyrics to the timeless track were taken directly from poems that Cook’s father wrote about his experiences while serving during the extraction period of the Vietnam War.
Kristy Lee Cook’s “Airborne Ranger Infantry” takes listeners on a journey into the heart and mind of a young soldier serving in a foreign war. The song paints a detailed picture of her father’s strength, courage and the sacrifice he proudly gave in order to defend his family, his fellow war brothers and the country he loved so much.
“Airborne Ranger Infantry” serves not only as a personal tribute to Cook’s father, but to all those who have risked their lives to serve in the United States military. The ballad powerfully draws the listener in by providing a first-hand perspective of what life was like through the eyes of a soldier.
Kristy Lee Cook first gained fame as a Top 10 finalist on Season 7 of FOX’s American Idol. Since Idol, Cook has continued to stay in the spotlight by hosting her own television program on The Outdoor Channel titled "Outdoors 10 Best" as well as starring in the Versus reality series, “Goin’ Country.”
Influenced at a young age by such vocal powerhouses as Whitney Houston, Shania Twain and Garth Brooks, the Selma, OR native began singing at gigs around and near her hometown when she was only 13 years old. With an intense love for Country music, horses and the outdoors, Cook’s energetic, girl-next-door approach to both her songwriting and music epitomizes the Country lifestyle.
Now signed to Broken Bow Records – whose roster includes multi-platinum superstar Jason Aldean as well as chart-topper Dustin Lynch – Cook is currently in the studio working with production team New Voice (Thompson Square) and multi-platinum recording artist Jason Aldean who is serving as executive producer of her upcoming album.
I loved Kristy’s version of the song “Like My Mother Does,” which she recorded back in 2008. We all know that song was later released by American Idol runner-up, Lauren Alaina. If you haven’t heard Kristy do this song, check it out on YouTube. Be sure to visit Kristy’s facebook page; and follow her on Twitter @kristyleecook.
