As the tour winds down, the Season 7 American Idols get ready to begin their post Idol music careers… Here are the latest updates
David Cook unveils his website today at DavidCookOfficial.com. Looking it over, it’s got tons of interactivity for fans–blogs, forums, fan photo section–and David promises to keep in touch! Check it out here. Cook’s debut album has an official release date–November 18. The single from the album will be released by early to mid-October.
David Archuleta’s not-so-official album release date is November 11. The runner up releases before the winner? Does it matter? I think they’re both going to sell a butt-load of records. David’s single “Crush” is officially released and being added to pop radio playlists as we speak.
Kristy Lee Cook’s post-Idol album “Why Wait” drops this Tuesday, September 16. You can listen to her album at CMT. Her single “15 Minutes of Shame” is currently #45 on the Hot Country Songs chart. She’ll be appearing on Live with Regis and Kelly on Friday September 19.
Michael Johns thanks his fans via My Space:
Hi everyone, I wanted to write you guys and say thank you from the bottom of my heart. This has been the Summer of a lifetime. All of us have just had the time of our lives. It has been the most fun roller coaster ride ever. Playing infront of 10 000 plus people a night is something that is reserved for very few artists. There were certainly nights it was hard to muster the energy. However seeing the fans and feeling the music, lifted me up to new heights.
I am going to be so busy over the next few months finishing my record and traveling. I will do my best to update you all. I will for sure be reading all your emails and messages on here, so please keep writing.
This is only the beginning and i hope all of you are ready to join me on this amazing journey you have all put me on. I could never have done this with out all of your love and support. ” It Can Happen” MJ
Michael is going Indie, rather than sign with a label. He plans to release a single by Novmeber, and an album early next year.
