David Cook Takes A Bite Out Of His Album
American Idol champ David Cook takes a big bite out of his self-titled major-label debut album at Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square on Tuesday. His CD dropped in stores yesterday and should land in the top three during it’s first week in sales.
The 25-year-old signer/songwriter, who is dating fellow Idol alum Kimberly Caldwell, recently sat down with EW to talk about his music. Here’s a sampling:
Everyone will be making the comparison you’re sick of: Is he gonna have a [successful Chris] Daughtry-like career? Opinions and perceptions, man — I didn’t let it get to me on the show, and I see no reason to let it get to me afterward. I just think this record is me, and if people want to compare it to Daughtry, awesome. He’s sold a ton of records. I just hope someday the coin will flip and somebody will compare somebody else to me.
