David Cook on Moving to Nashville and Being A White Guy with a Guitar (VIDEO)

Season 7 champ, David Cook, sat down with Shirley Halperin of The Hollywood  Reporter the day after he performed his new single, “The Last Song I’ll Write For You” on the American Idol results show.

David talked about recent changes in his life which includes selling his Los Angeles home ahead of a possible move to Nashville.  David wants to move closer to his family as his parents get older. He’s also beginning a new chapter in his musical career–he parted ways with his label, RCA, and will be releasing music on his own.

Also, David talked about being the inaugural White Guy With Guitar and some of his feelings around the acroynym, WGWG, that often has a negative connotation attached to it.

He hasn’t watched much Idol this year, but if he has some favorites, he wants to keep them to himself. He’d rather not hurt the finalists feelings. And the last two times he mentioned liking a contestant (Heejun Han and Elise Testone) they went home! (The Hollywood Reporter)
