Tonight: American-Idol winner David Cook hits the Clovis Rodeo
Most often, you read David Cook’s name and it’s preceeded by “American Idol season seven winner.”
Which is like, duh.
Say what you will about the state of the show these days, it has a huge draw and winning the thing is a springboard and a half.
That’s one that stays on the resume.
Especially if you’re a guy who never really knew where he stood on the talent scale, who grew up playing in a rock band in Kansas City, Missouri, and was happy, nay, ecstatic, to make $300 for a three hour gig.
