American finalist Kristy to make a debut

American finalist landed herself a record deal. Kristy Lee Cook , has done deal with 19 Recordings/Arista Nashville for a twang-heavy album debut, with her first single, “15 Minutes of Shame,” already getting an Aug. 11 release date.

The unnamed album will be recorded, as with Davids Cookand Archuleta, on the road this summer during the Idols Live! tour. While no firm release date has been announced for the album, like the Davids’, it will be due out this fall, presumably after David Cook’s.

Kirsty Lee Cook is wasting no time taking a page out of pastIdols’ play books: Arista Nashville is also home to Carrie Underwood, and her album is being produced by Brett James, who co wrote Underwood’s mega hit “Jesus Take the Wheel.”

Signing up with Arista Nashville also marks a return to Cook’s roots, as the singer was signed to the label as a countrified teen but parted ways with the company before getting the chance to record anything.
