Life for “American Idol” Season 7 winner David Cook has been going well, enough so that his stealthy victory over David Archuleta really doesn’t seem so surprising anymore.
With his self-titled album making platinum, Cook has been enjoying his solo tour “Declaration,” which hits Fort Lauderdale’s Nova Southeastern University on Sunday, Nov. 29.
On his tour, he tells the Miami Herald that he’s been trying to “unveil” a new song.
“We’ve done covers — we actually last night just played a cover song by an ’80s band, Johnny Hates Jazz, a song called ‘Shattered Dreams,'” says Cook. “So we try to have fun.”
“Shattered Dreams” origintally debuted in 1987 and became a one-hit wonder in the U.S. for British band Johnny Hates Jazz.
