Why Wait (Exclusive)
Released: Sep 2008
Label: 19 Recordings Limited / Arista Nashville
This American Idol contestant made no bones that she was gunning for a career in country music, and it appears that Kristy Lee Cook's day has come. But if you are expecting Carrie Underwood-type lightning to strike twice, Why Wait falls short. There are, however, enough radio-friendly contemporary county tracks to make the album an enjoyable way to pass the time. The Underwood-penned "Not Tonight," the heartwarming "Like My Mother Does" and the clever "Think Too Much" are the best places to start.
