In this interview, Carly Smithson hints to a reporter from the Grand Rapids Press, that there are good things to come once the Idol tour is over:
“I can’t really talk about it yet, ” she said, “but I did get some pretty good news the other day” regarding a recording contract.
Can we expect an announcement sooner rather than later about a record deal for Carly? If Carly is indeed about to sign a deal, she’ll be the 4th Idol from Season 7 to have signed a record contract. The others are the winner and runner-up, David Cook and David Archuleta, and 7th place finisher Kristy Lee Cook. Michael Johns, 8th place, is currently working on a record and plans to release independently.
