It can get crazy out there on the Idol road and American Idol winner David Cook has found a girlfriend who not only understands what it is like, but can give him a true perspective of it all. David Cook is dating a fellow Idol alumni Kimberly Caldwell.
“I think she just gets that this is all nuts,” Cook told PEOPLE at the Do the Wright Thing Gala at the Hard Rock CafÃƒ in New York last week. “She’s a nice break from the chaos.”
Caldwell may be the the perfect person for Cook as she can relate to what Cook is going through and is in a similar place career wise as he is. She finished in seventh place on season two of American Idol and has a promising singing career of her own with the release of two singles earlier this year.
Cook’s self-titled debut album will be released on Tuesday, with a performance planned for the big day. He is still unsure what the future holds for him, but is optimistic about it all.
“I’m going to celebrate by playing here at Hard Rock,” he says. “So I’ll be busy getting ready to play, but hopefully this is just the beginning of a very busy year for me, so I’m just ready to move on.”
