Prepare yourself...

Alright guys, I’m here to talk about something different today. You’re going to be shocked. Are you ready for it? Today I’m going to talk about music.

I know, I know… totally out of character for me. I’ll give you a minute to recover.

Okay, now that you’ve picked your jaw up off your keyboard, let’s get started.

If you haven’t already picked it up, I strongly encourage you to go get David Cook’s self-titled CD that was released this week.

Remember David? The big-hearted, word-nerd of a rocker from last season’s American Idol?

Y’all, his CD has blown me away. I haven’t been excited about any new artist in a long time, but his voice is incredible. It’s warm and soulful, yet still kind of raw and edgy.

I haven’t found a single song on the album that I don’t like.

And to top it all off, he seems like a really genuine guy – definitely worthy of his new-found success.

But that's just my opinion. Go check him out for yourself and let me know what you think!

Hey, it's our Idol boyfriend! (I have decided we can share.) You know your mom is going to post a comment encouraging you to find him and meet him...
I've gotta get his new CD. Haven't heard any new songs on the radio, but I"ve already tuned it to the Christmas station, so that's why! Glad you like it, that means I probably will, too!

I am not sure if you will believe this or not, I kid you not, right now I have David Cook blaring out of the speakers.

Jen's right. In the age of internet, ( blogs, Face Book, text messages, etc...) it's really not that hard to think maybe you could actually communicate with him. You know what a optimist I am. :)
Picked up the CD today, have'nt had a chance to listen yet, but have heard the single (Light On?)on XM.

OHhhhh I loved him. And sorry girls. He's taken. By me.
I can't wait to get the CD. You've made me slightly more excited by your raves!
