This is proof that American Idol, love it or hate it, puts people on the map. David Cook, who is still a part of the AI competition, and one of the favorites to win it all, is already selling albums.
His self-released CD Analog Heart was the number one downloaded album this past weekend on Amazon, beating out Mariah Carey! This is the first time a contestant's album has been available for the public prior to the AI season ending.
Well, now we know even if David doesn't win, he's already on his way to having a successful career!
