It has been a very long time since Country’s Chatter has done anything on Kristy Lee Cook. In fact, the last time was just about two years ago (Aug. 8, 2010). But it has also been a very long time since Kristy Lee Cook has done anything herself. I can’t even remember the title of what was probably the only song she ever released to radio, and I don’t think they are playing anything by her now – so, I was kind of surprised to hear that the Broken Bow recording artist has just begun an eight-week promotional tour with Ram Trucks. I remember her from American Idol, mostly because she told us that she had to sell her horse to get the money to travel to the audition. That is definitely a young lady who wants to follow her dream, no matter what the sacrifice. I remember I liked her voice, and I thought she did great on stage. But after Idol ended for the season (like most of us), I pretty much lost touch with her.
I did find something interesting on YouTube however – Click here and listen to this video, and let me know what you think. Seems to me that Kristy Lee should have released “Like My Mother Does” as a single a long time ago. This video was uploaded back in September of 2008, long before Lauren Alaina had the song on the radio. While I was running around on YouTube, I pulled up a few of her American Idol performances. She really did a good job on that show, and I definitely understand her Top Ten finish.
Hopefully, Kristy Lee will make the right stops on this tour – meet the right people, and get the backing she needs not only from her label, broken Bow, but also from some of her label mates like Jason Aldean, Dustin Lynch and James Wesley.
In addition to her web site, be sure to follow her on @kristyleecook15, and check out her facebook page, too.
Back later, let’s all go enjoy Saturday!
