Kristy Lee Cook Signs Record Deal

by at . Comments

Kristy Lee Cook is joining Arista Nashville records... for the second time!

Yes, this is the same label that signed Kristy Lee when she was 17 years old, only to drop the young musician before she recorded any albums.

Cooking Up an Album

The Oregon native is currently on the road with American Idols Live! Tour 2008. Her first single - the playful, up-tempo “15 Minutes of Shame” - will hit country radio on August 11.

“I’ve wanted this for so many years," Cook said. "To have the chance to be a country singer, to make the music I love, and to have enjoyed the support of so many American Idol fans this past season, it all means more than I can put into words. Thank you so much to everyone. I’ll do my best to make you proud!"
