Kansas City’s FOX 4 spoke to ‘American Idol’ season seven winner David Cook during the American Idols Live Tour 2008 stop in St. Louis, Missouri. Cook talked about being able to make it back to Tulsa and the Kansas City area after winning the FOX hit. “It was a bit of a trip. People there seemed shocked to see me,” Cook said. “It’s still very odd because, I mean, I don’t feel any different. Maybe I’ve got a few more numbers in the bank account, but that’s about it. But it was cool.” Video at myfoxkc.com has since been removed.
