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,” and 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’s poignant singles “Airborne Ranger Infantry” (inspired by poems written by her father while serving in the Vietnam War) and “Wherever Love Goes” (a duet with Randy Houser) were critically-lauded. Kristy is also the star of “The Most Wanted List,” airing the Sportsman’s Channel.
