Bombplate of the Week: Kristy Lee Cook

And we’re back! After our absence from our blog we decided it was time to start it back up again, this time starting with a feature post on our Bombplate of the week, Kristy Lee Cook!

We get quite the diverse clientele here at Bombplates, and our very own Kristy Lee Cook is no exception to this. She is a one of a kind country artist, and after researching her and her catalog of music, she is definitely an artist to watch.

The Oregon native’s career took off in 2008 during her run on American Idol: Season 7, where she placed 7th overall. After her finish on Idol she went back to Oregon and recorded her debut album “Devoted”. Although she got great reviews, Cook knew that the album wasn’t where she wanted to be labeled within her career, so, she took some time off to figure out what to do next.

After Cook’s time off she got a new management team and got back into the studio, since then her career has taken off, releasing another album “Why Wait”, debuting in 2008, and releasing her single Airborne Ranger Infantry in 2012 along with a music video following shortly. 

From personally watching, listening and reviewing Cook’s music, Airborne Ranger Infantry was one of the most moving and musically stimulating pieces she has. Cook explained that the song itself was written for her father who was in the Vietnam War. He wrote poems describing his time in the war, but was never able to talk about his experiences personally. Cook said that she would read these poems over and over again and knew that she needed to make something beautiful out of them for her father, “to honor him” she stated specifically. The song does it justice to say the least, and the way that the video depitcs the lyrics creates an all around great audiovisual experience. Even if country music isn’t your think, Kristy Lee Cook is worth checking out, specifically her single, Airborne Ranger Infantry. The song and the video are both noteworthy to say the least.

Cook’s music has been described as “true country” and “pure country”, her songs have raw emotion and are relatable. She’s been compared to Kellie Pickler and Carrie Underwood, a true country girl to the core. She’s a great artist destined for great things, so check her out! And Congrats again, Kristy for being Bombplate of the Week!
